Trump ups the ante in trade battle, slaps China with more tariffs


WOULD APPROVE BECAUSE IT’S FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETING RIGHT NOW, FOR MANY YEARS, CHINA AND MANY OTHER COUNTRIES HAS BEEN TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE UNITED STATES ON TRADE, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY THEFT, AND MUCH MORE. OUR COUNTRY HAS BEEN LOSING HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS A YEAR TO CHINA WITH NO END IN SIGHT. IT CONTINUES. SADLY, PAST ADMINISTRATIONS HAVE ALLOWED CHINA TO GET SO FAR AHEAD OF FAIR AND BALANCED TRADE THAT IT HAS BECOME A GREAT BURDEN TO THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER. AS PRESIDENT, I CAN NO LONGER ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN. IN THE SPIRIT OF ACHIEVING FAIR TRADE, WE MUST BALANCE THIS VERY UNFAIR TRADING RELATIONSHIP. CHINA SHOULD NOT HAVE PUT NEW TARIFFS ON $75 BILLION OF U.S. PRODUCT, POLITICALLY MOTIVATED, STARTING ON OCTOBER 1 THE $250 BILLION OF GOODS AND PRODUCTS FROM CHINA CURRENTLY BEING TAXED AT 25% WILL BE TAXED AT 30%. ADDITIONALLY, THE REMAINING $300 BILLION OF GOODS AND PRODUCTS FROM CHINA THAT WAS BEING TAXED FROM SEPTEMBER 1 AT

  1. Slap away Mr. President … we don't need any of that cheaply made garbage anyway (or to enrich the garbage [businessmen] that took industry out of the US simply in order to turn a greater profit).

  2. china has been screwing us for years. this amazing prez is doing something about it and dems have their panties in a wad. it's like effing dems want america to fail.

  3. Weak politicians who want to be loved by EVERYONE, have brought us to this point.
    This is why we elected President Trump. He is not a weak politician – he is a strong leader.

  4. Oh, Donald Trump, he is so AWESOME, no one can buy Trump!! Donald Trump is the best president the US has ever seen!

    China has been f-cking the US for years by imposing high tariffs for any US products sold in China and China was not even taxed or next to nothing for Chinese products sold in the US! And that is only THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG ABOUT CHINA!! China regularly steals many intellectual property on many products, and many more problems relate to trading with China!!

  5. Let them try an sell thier products that are the worst
    Made of any other country
    Go get um Mr.Trump
    Stand tall be high
    NOT like 44 the low side of
    Nothing
    The WORM

  6. Thank you Bill Clinton 🖕🖕🖕for lifting the embargo and giving China the opportunity to become the global menace 😡😡😡that it is today.🖕🖕🖕

  7. The President is showing he is determined to be a one term President. The economy is starting on a free fall and it is all due to his tariffs. The very people who voted for him are being hurt the most. JP Morgan said last week the President’s Trade war will cost on average of $1000 a person. And that was only last week!

  8. It's time for America and the rest of the Western world to stop trading with a repressive communist regime of China which has a terrible record on human rights and environment protection, as well as its belligerent bullying of its smaller neighbors in South East Asia and illegally building artificial islands in the Spratly archipelago and militarizing the same with impunity.

  9. finally, someone has the gut to give china their own medicine. american must back trump and stop buying shoes, clothes and electronics for this tactic to work. basically dont buy anything. once chinnese become completely idle, they will come to the table to negotiate.

  10. I am totally with the President,and like paycheck to paycheck guy I am ready to make some sacrifice for the good of the country and my children,so I hope that born here Americans rally behind our President Trump so we can win this new Cold War against the communists in China ok,we naturalized Americans are totally behind the President because we know what the communists are ok,let’s go mr President crush the communists inside and out ,god bless America

  11. America supplied itself and most other countries around the globe with food, clothing and weapons during WWII and we can do it again. Keep piling on the tariffs until every American corporation producing goods in China brings its manufacturing back to the U.S. That will result in tens of millions more jobs for Americans who will then have more money with which to buy American-made goods.

  12. Now watch Liberals flock to protect China, one of the most murderous evil Communist governments in history, while they call US "Nazis"

  13. Fox Business doesn't understand that China isn't the one who pays the tarriffs, but American importers? Or are they being willfully deceptive. It's one of the 2, and neither are acceptable.

  14. Trump is right. At some point we have to take a stand. He’s only looking for fair trade. Trade with China is not balanced, it needs to be.

  15. Thank you CHINA! We don't want to buy your lead based poisoned toys…. contaminated meat… and junk product! America!!!! Get the machines rolling! Time to buy AMERICAN!

  16. AT LEAST TRUMP CUT THE BILLIONAIRE TAX RATE BY 40% SO ALL THE BURDEN FALLS ON THE MIDDLE CLASS!!! TUCK FRUMP !!!!!!!!!!
