Trump tweets on China-US trade dispute

"Your country's going to be much stronger when this is finished". Trump's rejection of the deal has rattled allies and raised questions at home about whether protectionism will impede USA economic growth. Currently, as Trump tweeted, China imposes 25 percent tariffs on American vehicles, and mandates that foreign companies form joint ventures with Chinese firms.

President Donald Trump is complaining about "STUPID TRADE" with China, saying that Chinese tariffs for USA cars are much higher than US tariffs for Chinese automobiles.

The administration has announced plans to hit China with tariffs on steel, aluminum and high-tech products in an escalating battle over the USA trade deficit with Beijing.

Months after taking office in April of 2017, while talking about the threat from North Korea, President Trump told Fox News, "I don't want to telegraph what I am doing or what I am thinking". Beijing also declared that the current rhetoric made negotiations impossible, even as the White House suggested that the tariff talk was a way to spur China to the bargaining table.

Farm-state lawmakers said Thursday after a White House meeting with Trump that he had given that assignment to his trade representative, Robert Lighthizer, and his new chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow. In a new report, the Congressional Budget Office said the tax cuts would add a total of $1.9 trillion (U.S.) to the federal deficit by 2028.

We need to combat this trend by not focusing on the latest tweet but by examining the hard policy proposals and think of the implications Trump's public statements will have on America in the years to come. Kudlow, who started his job a week ago after his predecessor, Gary Cohn, quit over the tariff plan, brushed aside the possibility of economic repercussions. So that will be very exciting, I think, for the world. He allowed that there "could be" a trade war but said he didn't anticipate one.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed legislation aimed at penalizing website operators that facilitate online sex trafficking and chipping away at a legal protection for the technology industry. The U.S. Treasury Department is working on plans to restrict Chinese technology investments in the U.S. And there is talk that the U.S. could also put limits on visas for Chinese who want to visit or study in this country.
