The spiral of trade war is twisting: Trump threatened Beijing with additional duties

33
Donald Trump instructed the US trade representative to explore the possibility of raising duties on Chinese goods by $ 100 billion, reports RIA News.




Earlier, the US authorities decided to increase the duties on goods from the PRC by $ 50 billion in connection with the “violation by the Chinese side of intellectual rights to American products.” In Beijing, announced the response to the same amount.

As Trump explained, Washington can take such measures against the backdrop of “unjust China’s response.”

Despite these actions, the United States is still ready for further discussions in support of our commitment to achieving free, fair and reciprocal trade and the protection of technology and intellectual property of American companies and the American people,
said in a presidential statement.

He also instructed the Minister of Agriculture "to use his broad powers to implement a plan to protect American farmers and agricultural interests."

The US tariff plan is based on section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 of the year, which has already been the subject of litigation at the WTO. Then the trade organization noted that "economically strong states should not threaten the economies of other countries with their unilateral actions." The WTO also added that “US trade law complies with the rules of the World Trade Organization, since the United States explicitly, officially, repeatedly and unconditionally,” confirmed that they would introduce duties only based on the results of discussions in the WTO.

          A typical Anglo-Saxon policy - "Washington can take such measures against the backdrop of"unfair retaliation actions ... "of absolutely any state. The justice format is determined independently and is preferred so that no retaliatory actions are taken after they fall out to them ... (And what for us?)

          We would now have to cooperate with Comrade Xi against the backdrop of these troubles of the USA and China, and create such “unjust actions” so that they would completely discourage hunting outside the puddle with instructions, sanctions and all that ...

    Donald Trump instructed the U.S. sales representative to study the possibility of increasing duties on Chinese goods by $ 100 billion.

    Well, the WTO also agreed that the United States in its rights is more right than all the others. But how to trade with scammers? The saying about gentlemen changing the rules of the game during the game itself is becoming more relevant.
    Moreover, the American club, in the form of the armed forces, is no longer afraid.

      It seems that in this game two players stand each other. One shamelessly changes the rules for himself, the other one shamelessly copies everything that he reaches. One juggles with rules, the other with intellectual property rights.

    $ 100 billion
    He took a big step if he decided to heat China by another 100 billion. He didn’t even get the initially planned 50 billion. Interestingly, but the pants will not burst in the crotch from such twine? This twisting intrigue with the "trade war" is of great interest. And primarily because of the subsequent actions of China.

        China? What side is it here?
        Simple. With an increase in duties on imported goods, its value in this market increases, which means it becomes less in demand. The amount of purchase of such a product is reduced, which means that the country producing this product incurs losses. If this were a shit for China, then it would not have reacted to it.

    They do not study the unforgettable grandfather of Krylov in American schools, but in vain.

    TIT

    A tit on the sea started:
    She boasted
    That the sea wants to burn.
    It immediately relaxed about the speech around the world.
    Fear embraced the inhabitants of the Neptune * capital;
    Birds fly in herds;
    And the animals from the forests come running to watch,
    How will the Ocean and whether it burns hot.
    And even, they say, at the hearing of rumored winged rumors
    Hunters carry on feasts
    From the first with spoons came to the shores,
    To choke the ears so rich
    Some kind of dealers *, and the most torovy *,
    Do not give secretaries.
    Crowd: everyone miraculously wonders in advance,
    It is silent and, staring at the sea, waiting;
    Only occasionally another whispers:
    "Here it boils, then it immediately lights up!"
    Not here: the sea is not burning.
    Does it boil at least? - And does not boil.
    And how did the grandeur's ventures end?
    The tit with shame swam away;
    Made the Tit of Glory
    And the sea is not lit
    To speak here is good,
    But without touching anyone's face
    What’s the matter, not bringing an end,
    No need to boast.

      Well, yes ... and us for sho ??? there seems to be mutual learning going raguli-mattress and raguli win.

      I read once about interesting experiments)) a group of people with a high development of intelligence and dumber, an equal number, joint tasks, for some decent time.
      and so on throughout the series of tests: the smarter ones became dumber, descended to the level of their stupid partners.
      although it seemed (the researchers were sure) that it should be the other way around ... (Darwin was surely to guarantee it :)))

    Trump naively believes that he will open many jobs, BUT Americans have long ago become accustomed to physically work hard, mostly newcomers work and prosperous Americans. Most people just sell and work at the computer and exchange games.

      Well, nothing like that, in fairness. Americans know how to work very well.
      1 American is about 3 Russians (in peacetime))
      you have to work - the Americans will work without days off and walk-throughs, and they won’t ask about overtime, and they work honestly, play prank, piss off.

    WTO - miserable epigones! I remember that during the time of the wars of the diadochs, the Athenian Areopagus ruled that "everything that he did does and will do in the future Demetrius Polyorket - legally and pious! "

    Trump is trying to get the Americans to work. Let the companies cease to receive super-profits in the near future, but in the future it will be good for the United States, if successfully implemented. Technology and the availability of energy are approaching the “jump point”, when the withdrawal of production abroad will no longer play such a significant role, and the leakage of technology in local production will drastically decrease.
    All this is quite transparent and readable: a spasmodic increase in the number of jobs, protection of technological advantages, strengthening the sphere of material production, reducing dependence on imports.
    Whether Trump’s actions will lead to the planned success, time will tell.

    The Yankees are coming ... Beijing can only say that he is going to get rid of an impressive amount of US debt papers ... And ... Well, in general, it is clear ... Trump is being lynched. And if they don’t lynch, then they really can merge ...
    But it's not Trump ...
    Kissinger also said that no matter what the candidate for the presidency of the United States promised, after he came to power, he may not have and as a rule will not have a basis for fulfilling his obligations ...
    that is, in translation, this can be understood as "whoever is at the helm will not change a hu ..." well, in the sense, will not change anything ..
    .... that is, America’s policy is unchanged: Crush and rob everyone by any means. And ABSOLUTELY no matter what the president says there. The only thing they do not understand is that on their cunning .op now there is horseradish with a screw. The situation has changed a bit.
