The Washington D.C. establishment will not be happy when they hear Trump’s new plan for dealing with China on trade.
Like the master dealmaker he is, Trump kept everyone guessing as to his true intentions with trade and China.
The North Korea issue sucked a lot of air out of the room and Trump had to use all his talents to get China to finally help while still holding out the option to get tough with China on trade.
An impossible task but Trump somehow got it done. China is finally squeezing North Korea and the Rocket Man is in full panic.
There is more work to be done here, but Trump has made more progress than Bush, Clinton, and Obama combined.
Now as Axios is reporting, Trump is overruling the swamp and will “accuse China of economic aggression”
Upset that China has not done enough to help Trump fix the trade imbalance (we will never forget all the greedy CEO’s and corrupt politicians who sold out middle America for the quick money) he inherited.
Look, the CEO’s and politicians scammed America and while Trump doesn’t blame China he needs them to understand this is not Obama or Clinton or Bush they are dealing with.
This is a true America first policy and branding China this way will allow Trump more than enough room to get them to understand the new reality.
From the Axios report:
- One person familiar with the strategy says it is “likely to define China as a competitor in every realm. Not just a competitor but a threat, and therefore, in the view of many in this administration, an adversary.”
- What it means: This is “a strong sign that he has become frustrated at his inability to use his bond with China’s President Xi Jinping to convince Beijing to address his trade concerns.”
- Michael Allen, a former Bush official, now a Beacon Global Strategies managing director: “The national security strategy is the starting gun for a series of economic measures against the Chinese … the Rosetta Stone for translating campaign themes into a coherent governing document.”
This move will have global implications…Do you agree with this move by President Trump?
