CHINA-DEMOCRAT COLLUSION: Red Threat Focuses New Tariffs on Punishing Crucial 2020 States

Seems like the Chinese communists really want the Democrats to win in 2020.

As the trade war escalates, China is targeting tariffs to hurt pro-Trump states, including crucial swing states in America’s heartland, where President Donald Trump will need votes the most in order to win re-election in 2020.

China announced on Wednesday that the country will levy an additional 25 percent tariff on 106 American products, including pork, soybeans and aircraft, totaling $50 billion in U.S. dollars. This was done as a likely response to Trump’s announcement of tariffs on 1,333 Chinese products.

The soybean tariffs will prove particularly problematic to the U.S. economy, as they are currently the largest U.S. export to China. Rural states that overwhelmingly support Trump will be hit the hardest by China’s new push, which includes 25 percent levies on whiskey and tobacco that are designed to hurt the industry of Kentucky.

China will levy a 15 percent duty on ginseng, which will primarily hurt Wisconsin. Wisconsin produces roughly 85 percent of ginseng exports out of the U.S. to China, and it is one of the states that Trump needs to retain if he wants a second term of his presidency. Tariffs on automobile producers in Michigan are expected to have the same effect.

President Trump responded by focusing his ire on the policies of the Federal Reserve while strengthening his rhetoric against China and the U.S.-based corporations that do business in the hostile communist nation.

Despite what the Chinese communists and their Democratic partners have in store to punish the U.S. economy, Trump refuses to back down on trade as he remains dedicated to making America great again.

Chinese State Media Hack Cites CATO Institute To Defend Globalist Trade Policies

Politics makes strange bedfellows.

Published

An editor of a Chinese-government controlled media group cited a CATO Institute article to argue against Senator Josh Hawley’s criticisms of the World Trade Organization in a tweet on Tuesday, telling the Missouri Senator to “get educated” on the benefits the globalist trade organization supposedly provides.

Chen Weihua is the EU bureau chief of China Daily, a daily newspaper following in the mold of many Chinese media organizations in being entirely state-owned and affiliated with the Chinese government.

It would nominally comes as a surprise that an operative of the Chinese Communist Party would cite the free-trade libertarian think tank’s rebuttal to Senator Hawley’s argument against the WTO, but politics makes for strange bedfellows. Both the Chinese government’s outsourcing-based economic model and western corporate elites cozy with CATO benefit from a continued regime of low trade barriers and free trade, placing the ideological libertarians and Chinese communists in the same camp on trade policy.

Senator Hawley had put Weihua on blast for propagandizing against the populist-right senator’s call to abolish the World Trade Organization and replace it with an economic nationalist and pro-worker alternative. The WTO has been a critical element in the outsourcing of millions of American jobs and vital national industry to China and other countries where cheap labor is plentiful.

Staunch America First advocates pushed back against Weihua and CATO’s defense of “free trade” with China, with economic nationalists arguing that the country should never even have been let into the WTO to begin with.
