President Donald Trump has optimistically returned to negotiations with China, stressing that he is not going to raise tariffs against the Chinese while talks are in progress. Trump is fighting to reverse the decades-old trade imbalance between the two superpowers, because China has been grossly taking advantage of the United States for a very long time.
President Donald Trump’s envoy finished talks in Beijing with Chinese leaders as the United States and China come closer to reaching a massive trade agreement that would re-shape the economies of both nations.
Now, the series swings back home to the United States for the final round of negotiations.
Steven Mnuchin and Robert Lighthizer flew to Beijing and did not experience any difficulty — at least in public — but President Donald Trump still holds all the cards.
For decades, China has taken advantage of the United States in trade deals, exploiting the weakness of past Republican and Democrat administrations. But Trump changed the game.
American tariffs struck a decisive blow to the Chinese economy, forcing the business-savvy Communists to come to the table. In 2018, China posted its worst economic growth figure — 6.6 percent — since 1990, when then-president George Bush used the collapse of the Soviet Union to push through a globalist America Last foreign policy imitated by his successors Clinton, Bush, and Obama. China’s entry into the World Trade Organization in 2001 spelled doom for American manufacturing. The Midwest, battered also by NAFTA and the more than $1 trillion taxpayer tab for the Iraq War, fell into deep economic decline.
But Trump is bringing it back, aided by Mnuchin and his economic adviser Larry Kudlow, who is more than willing to play ball with tariffs in order to correct the massive trade disparity enjoyed by the Chinese regime.
The two sides have already agreed on one major point: China is going to purchase about $1.2 trillion in additional American goods over a six-year period, enough to wipe out the trade imbalance by the year 2024.
But the devil is in the details. The American people deserve 5G technology without fear of Chinese companies spying on us, even more than they do now. And the Chinese shamelessly rip off our tech innovation with intellectual property theft. Inventors — like content creators — don’t like being ripped off.
Trump has the upper hand because he can always call the deal off and impose more tariffs on China. Who can stop him? Not the well-funded but misguided Koch political network, which fought tooth and nail against tariffs (they like so-called “free trade” because they like cheap overseas labor). The Kochs were completely incapable of stopping Trump’s tariffs, which must really make them mad. Some people just don’t want to see America do well. Sad!
Now the Chinese vice premier is gearing up for a trip to Washington, D.C. Has he read “Art of the Deal”? Perhaps the North Koreans can lend him their copy, gifted to them by America’s informal ambassador Dennis Rodman.
Good work, Lighthizer and Mnuchin!
Tom Cotton Calls Out Joe Biden for His Pro-Amnesty Comments at the Last Debate
At Least One Senator Has the Stones To Call Out Democrats’ Immigration Plan to Transform the Country
After former Vice President Joe Biden declared at the presidential debate last week that Americans “owe” Deferred Amnesty for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to illegal aliens, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton quickly pounced on Biden’s pro-amnesty declaration.
“We do not owe anything to these illegal aliens,” Cotton said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily interview with Alex Marlow. “They should be grateful that they’ve been tolerated in this country for all these years,” he declared.
This remark came the day after Biden called for a mega amnesty of the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens currently in the U.S.
I am going to send to the United States Congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people and all of those so-called ‘dreamers,’ those DACA kids, they are going to be immediately certified again to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship … They [DACA migrants] have been here — many of them are model citizens. Over 20,000 of them are first responders out there taking care of people during this crisis. We owe them. We owe them.
Cotton was quick to respond to Biden’s remarks:
He didn’t just say that we’re gonna give them an amnesty in the first hundred days — encouraging a rush to our border over the next six months — he said that we have to do it because we owe it to these illegal aliens.
We owe nothing to illegal aliens. We owe a duty to American citizens to help them get back on their feet and get back to work. And that’s true whether you know whether your parents came over on the Mayflower or it’s true whether you came here the right way, the legal way, and just took the oath of citizenship last week. That’s who we owe something to — to American citizens, not to the foreigners.
In Biden’s plan for mass amnesty, there was no real attempt to at least shore up border security or clamp down on visa fraud, which Cotton highlighted:
Biden is saying ‘I’m gonna send an amnesty bill to the Congress in my first hundred days without asking anything in return, without trying to secure our border, without enforcing immigration at workplaces against unscrupulous employers, without cracking down on visa fraud’
In Cotton’s view, the Democrats are “now the party of open borders, mass migration, and blanket amnesty … that’s a big shift and from where the Democrats were just eight years ago.”
Though Cotton has very hawkish views on foreign policy, his immigration views on are in line with Middle Americans. Immigration patriotism would be best served by politicians who prioritize policing our border, ports, and customs office, as opposed to countries who don’t bend the knee to the foreign policy blob’s demands.
When Cotton talks about immigration, he at his best. This issue is of critical importance to America and the GOP’s ability to stay competitive. Not only does mass migration disproportionately benefit Big Capital thanks to the depression of worker wages, it also create a massive voting bloc that will benefit the Democratic Party in future elections.
It’s time for Americans to realize what’s at stake in this election and vote for Donald Trump.
