POLL: Do you approve of Trump’s tough stance on China?
Trade talks between the United States and China have crumbled, creating a tariff war that has wrecked havoc on the stock markets, sending the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeting over 600 points on Monday.
After China backed out of trade agreements, President Trump announced additional tariffs on Chinese imports last week. China has responded by slapping tariff’s on $60 billion worth of U.S. imports into their country effective June 1, affecting commodities such as certain beef, live plants, dyed flowers, soybeans, and a range of fruits and vegetables. Other products reportedly to be affected include furniture, electronics, jewelry, cosmetics and fabrics.
Trump has stated that one way to completely avoid the tariffs is for companies to resume manufacturing products in the United States. He tweeted Monday, “There is no reason for the U.S. Consumer to pay the Tariffs, which take effect on China today. This has been proven recently when only 4 points were paid by the U.S., 21 points by China because China subsidizes product to such a large degree. Also, the Tariffs can be completely avoided if you buy from a non-Tariffed Country, or you buy the product inside the USA (the best idea). That’s Zero Tariffs.”
He added, “Many Tariffed companies will be leaving China for Vietnam and other such countries in Asia. That’s why China wants to make a deal so badly! There will be nobody left in China to do business with. Very bad for China, very good for USA! But China has taken so advantage of the U.S. for so many years, that they are way ahead (Our Presidents did not do the job). Therefore, China should not retaliate-will only get worse!”
