US-China Trade War

This makes no sense. The US economy is booming despite the "trade war" with China. Is this saying that China has some control over our economic performance? Reality check media bozos- the Chinese economy has been tanking while the US economy has boomed since the tariffs were imposed. The tariffs are a means to an end- the end being getting China to play by the rules of international trade set by the WTO. This is really the only thing (standing up to China) that had bipartisan support. But that was before Trump of course. Now nothing does. That doesn't mean it's not the right thing to do. It manifestly is. China will blink first. Big win ultimately for American manufacturers (what's left of them, most were put out of business by the Chinese) and the men and women who work for them- you know, those "white nationalists" who vote for Trump. BTW, Trump' s numbers among black and Latino workers are higher than any Republican since GWB. Good, very good, particularly if the Dems nominate anti-busing Biden or socially uber-liberal Pete B. My Democratic friends almost make this too easy!!!

You are correct des, and this is precisely the time to stand up to the Chinese, while our economy is doing so well. Their trade-cheating and industrial espionage has to stop. The US is losing hundreds of billions of dollars annually due to China’s actions.
