Trump Strikes Back at China

China is in trouble now.

Trump has spent a large part of his presidency up to this point trying to mend relations between the US and China, while also refraining from the kind of acquiescence demonstrated by his predecessor, Barack Obama.

But it seems Beijing has gotten too used to weak American presidents, and so they continue to push Trump.

They’re about to learn that you can only push this president so far.

Last week, China decided to raise tariffs on some $75 billion worth of US imports.

It was a potshot.

Trump responded by dropping a bomb.

“Starting on October 1st, the 250 BILLION DOLLARS of goods and products from China, currently being taxed at 25 percent, will be taxed at 30 percent,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Additionally, the remaining 300 BILLION DOLLARS of goods and products from China, that was being taxed from September 1st at 10 percent, will now be taxed at 15 percent.”

The president reiterated what he’s been saying since the election campaign, that the American economy is losing hundreds of billions of dollars to China in an unfair trade war.

And since no one else in the federal government either sees it or is ready to do something about it, Trump said that he’s ready and able to fight this battle alone.
