Ya think Americans? I mean really, do ya think Trump can take on China?

How about you chief? Are you still standing behind your president saviour?  Roll Eyes

Real libertarians know how to take a stand against this Trump nonsense!

If you don't support Trump on this then I accept it. Each of the others are offered the same opportunity to declare the same.
In a sincere way!

Do you think I support tariffs and trade wars Dick? I was opposed to Nixon's wage and price controls too. I bet you could have guessed that...

Trump is trying to level the playing field and rectify the China ($374 Billion) trade deficit with tariffs.

A bad idea, but Trump felt he had to do something

China will retaliate, food prices will go up in China, and things like refrigerators and flat-screen TVs will be more expensive for Americans.

There are never any "winners" in a trade war. Everybody loses, but one side will typically lose more than the other.

A bad idea, IMO, but China has Trump on the ropes.
????

How so?

Why not say America has Xi on the ropes?

The trade war wasn't started by Trump, it's been going on for years, and China has been winning while we've been losing.  I don't like the idea of a trade war, but I'm not sure what other alternative would get China, and other countries, to stop engaging in unfair trade practices.

The American people have been winning Ruby. Chinese people have been working cheap to provide us with nice stuff at good prices.

Trump wants to change that?

He wants Americans to have to pay higher prices for lots of stuff? And that would mean we were "winning"?

Do you actually know what you're talking about Ruby, or are you just regurgitating some talking points you've heard from one of Trump's hillbillies.

So is it just China that's not playing fair with the US or is it all the other countries Trump decided to take on?

Give us your best argument on China if you prefer, or any of the others.

Would it be o.k. with you if I started out with Canada's softwood lumber fight with the US?

Whatever fight you consider yourself the expert on, is fine with me though.  Embarrassed

That's telling her Dick!

The U.S. has been protectionist at least since the beginning of the Progressive Era... 100 years?

Liberal Americans at the beginning of the Progressive Era opposed protectionism and advocated for free trade...

Who in China has ever advocated for free trade?

Liberal Canadians at the beginning of the Progressive Era advocated for free trade right?
