Historically, vicious trade wars have led to shooting wars.

North Korea Crisis: Trump Threatens to Stop U.S. Trade With China. Could He?

No. But that won't stop him from trying anyway.

I've read that his aids have fought to prevent him from sparking a trade war with China. Is this how he's going to do it?

That's not terrifying at all....

If he starts a trade war with china I'm not sure he actually survives. i think he's dead.
 
2017-09-04 12:37:16 PM  
This is as much vaporware as his wall...only in this case, if he tries it, he'll find his ass being impeached and indicted...

You can mess around with domestic policy, and piss off our neighbors, but when you threaten the money-makers, then you're toast...

Magic Johnson has survived for decades with HIV, the drugs available are doing incredible jobs, as CIC he has access to the very best health care, but if it's full blown AIDS, yeah that has to be terrifying. His aides would be panicking, GI-Joe with the kung-fu grip, shiat like that

I don't think he'd live to see an indictment, much less an impeachment

The Kennedy Protocol would be activated

The rest of the world has caught on to what we've known for a long time; that his words and threats are practically meaningless.

I'm all for taking away China's most favored nation trade status.  Won't happen.

Considering all of the Trump merchandise is made in China, I don't think so.

It won't happen, but, I'd love to see China suddenly halt exports to the US ahead of Trump saying we won't do business with them. Just for a short unannounced period of time. I'd put the over/under on an economic panic at 5 business days.
 
2017-09-04 01:07:44 PM  
Just another day ending in a "y," I see. Trump's a fool.
 
2017-09-04 01:07:50 PM  
The same country that helped Trump get elected also helped build North Korea's nuclear and ICBM program. Russia has set up this entire thing.

China needs the US more than the US needs China.  There are other countries making cheap plastic junk for Walmart.

"However, the president has a track record of failing to follow through on his bold statements - such as promising to label China a currency manipulator."

I think they have that figured out by now.

Jake Havechek: China could call back their loans to the U.S.


Japan holds more U.S. debt than China does, and if China were to try to call it all back at once it would cripple their economy more than ours, and basically fark the international markets.

They blink first.

So, between

A: debt ceiling shennanigans which don't even have to fail to get our national credit downgraded,
B: two-sided brinkmanship over NK's nukes, and
C:  A nice fat trade war to go with it...

When are the markets going to lose control over some very quivery bowels?  I know Wall Street collectively drink the Kool-Aid that pro business stuff could get shoved through under all the chaos but nobody's buying that anymore.  Nothing about this is good for business, or trade, or our continued existence as a nation.

Let's see the people who own those skyscrapers "free and clear" not pay their property taxes.

Long overdue.
There's no reason to give China preferential treatment if they can't reign in their dog.  Might suck in the short term but long run it would make life in the region easier if china wasn't building weapons with money made from our businesses.

Try in milliseconds after China announced it.  Many stock traders have AI monitoring news feeds and Twitter for news that would affect the stock market.  In less than a second the DOW and NASDAQ would plummet.  Some minutes later trading would be halted, but the panic would have started.

Stopping trade with China would be the single most damaging thing to the U.S. economy possible (short of nuclear war).

Trump's always been soulless and amoral, but has he always been mentally retarded? Could be Alzheimer, or pill addiction... something.  Its actually impressively foolish for someone with so much power.
