Donald Trump threatens China with “the worst punishment”

81

US President Donald Trump said what punishment on the part of the United States will be the worst for the Chinese. This punishment could befall China for "concealing COVID-19 data.


It is reported by Fox News.

When asked if the United States intends to increase duties on Chinese-made goods, Donald Trump said that this would be a very terrible punishment for the People's Republic of China. He also said that Washington is playing a very difficult game with Beijing.

Moreover, this game is not even checkers at all, but rather chess or poker.


According to the President of the United States, China made a big and gross mistake in deciding to hide information about the coronavirus from the world community. Trump said that China, having made a "terrible mistake", decided to keep secret in order to "extinguish it like a fire." He said that we still need to figure out why the Chinese did not stop the spread of COVID-19 to other countries.

At the same time, Trump hardly understands that the introduction of additional duties on Chinese goods will primarily hit the Americans themselves. Indeed, in the USA, goods from China are so popular that their price hurt would hit the pocket of a simple resident of America.

    But does Trump understand the rules of the game Beijing is playing?

        I believe that in this case, Trump perfectly understands the rules of the game. Moreover, he establishes them .. increase in duties, will force production to move to other countries .. yes it will take time, but it will inflict a serious blow on billionth China.

      Here the Zadrischenskiy District Court of Texas will make a decision - to recover 5 trillion bucks from China, and the Supreme Court will approve.

    Since 2012, Chinese exports to the United States have been falling by 10% per year. Along with this, the growth of the Chinese economy is slowing down. China is no longer allowed to grow due to the American market.

      China has a huge domestic market, so where exactly to sell products there is definitely + this market is developing, if in the USA + Europe the services are the basis of GDP, then China has it in the development process, 1.4 billion consumers is a huge market. Yes, and the United States and the EU do not know what will come out after the crisis, given that unemployment in the United States simply breaks records, buyers from them will be just fine ... although of course everything will recover over time. But the global center can move, if from 2000-2019 the focus was primarily on Western consumers and corporations tried to get the main profit there, then from 2020 the East market: China, India (1,3 billion people), Japan, South Korea etc. would be preferable.

      China, as user Aleksander21 correctly noted, has a capacious

      stimulate the Chinese to buy things, cars, real estate.
      In addition, China has advanced in the Silk Road-2 project.
      He trades with the whole world.
      Stopping China with duties or sanctions is not easy. He is an "economic

        There is a pattern:

        Decline in US and Chinese trade = slowdown in the Chinese economy.

        The capacious Chinese market does not replace exports to the United States, China has had this capacious market since the 49th year, but Chinese growth began precisely after access to american market In one capacious market, China has not yet grown, and even more so, has not grown at a double-digit pace.

          -----
          Chinese growth began in the 80s, with the reforms of Den Seo Ping. From now on China
          began the transition from a socialist economy to a capitalist one. Started with
          invitations of foreign factories to its territory and intensive export.
          And for 40 years he moved to 2nd place in the world. Capitalism led to the emergence of middle
          class (300 million, roughly - like the entire population of the States). And this middle class
          actively "consumes". It is possible to slow down the pace of development of China, but it is impossible to defeat
          him in the trade wars.

    China products are so popular in the USA
    Let's put it another way. In the United States, there are practically no goods (consumer goods), not from China. So, let's see if the Americans can live without the usual "little things" laughing

    Pinching a competitor, opponents for moshna, a "holy cause"!
    They didn’t come up with anything new, old, proven over the centuries, methods!

                In general, the arsonist is now one, collective, but one "head" is more important than the others! Unfortunately, she’s the worst.

    Moreover, this game is not even checkers at all, but rather chess or poker.

    For Trump, it's poker! I just don’t think that he has a joker in his pocket, because the economies of China and the USA are practically one.

    Trump does not solve anything. He's dumber than Bush. They chose him and you decide who you know for him (I don’t want to go into details so as not to accuse me of being a conspiracy theorist). He simply sets out diplomatic thoughts in simple words. He, if you will, is a talking head like Zhirinovsky. One of the reasons for hitting China is to make it more accommodating in Iran. China is the only country that somehow supports Iran. Plus, throw the arrows due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the USA to China and hide their sins, bragging, complete failure and incompetence in solving this problem. The late Zadornov was right — they are mostly (not all, there are a lot of wonderful people there) full of dumbass and ignoramuses. Watch at some leisure time the cycle of satirical programs of Sasha Baron Cohen "Who is America?" So to speak, an inside look.
