President Trump Stands With American Workers Against Chinese Tricks

Trump is not letting the Chinese communists boss him around and dictate his trade agenda

President Donald Trump has taken a tough stance against the communist regime of China, a regime that Trump believes has been ripping America off in trade deals for far too long.

“China is ripping us off on trade. They’re devaluing their currency. And they’re killing our companies. We’ve lost 4 to 7 million jobs because of China,” Trump said while campaigning for President back in 2016.

Trump has delivered on his campaign rhetoric in the White House, as he announced new tariffs of $200 billion on Chinese imports to the U.S. In retaliation, China announced they would be increasing duties on $60 billion worth of U.S. imports. Trump does not find this acceptable.

Trump has “phase three” ready and prepared for the Chinese if they remain unwilling to back down in this budding trade war against the U.S.

“If China takes retaliatory action against our farmers or other industries, we will immediately pursue phase three, which is tariffs on approximately $267 billion of additional imports,” Trump said in a statement.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross claims that the tariffs are being targeted specifically so U.S. consumers will not be burdened by the additional taxes while Trump works his deal-making magic to aid U.S. prosperity.

“We went item by item, trying to figure out what would accomplish the punitive purpose on China and yet with the least disruption in the U.S.,” Ross said to CNBC, noting that increases in inflation have been minimal.

“Nobody is going to actually notice [price hikes] at the end of the day,” Ross said, because increases shall be “spread across thousands and thousands of products.”

China is predictably angry at the fact that Trump is derailing their gravy train after picking the U.S. apart for so many decades.

“The Chinese side has repeatedly emphasized that the only correct way to solve the trade dispute between China and the United States is through talk and consultation on the basis of equity, integrity and mutual respect,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said during a news briefing. “But what the US side has done doesn’t show sincerity or goodwill.”

China expects goodwill but the communist nation does not practice what it preaches, as they have frequently taken advantage of the U.S. The Chinese will have to get used to Trump’s new approach to foreign affairs, as they are shown where their nation really stands in the global pecking order.
