    Trump Says China Wants a Trade Deal "Very Badly"

    1. BIARRITZ, France/BEIJING -- U.S. President Donald Trump said Monday that China had lost "much more than 3 million jobs" in recent months and that President Xi Jinping has no choice but to agree to a trade deal with the U.S....

    Earlier in the day, Trump had said "China called, last night, our top trade people," and that they had proposed to resume talks. "So we'll be getting back to the table," Trump told reporters on the final day of the G-7. The comments reversed a potential sell-off on Wall Street Monday morning, sending the Dow Industrial Average up over 250 points....

    Meanwhile, at the G-7 closing press conference, Trump said that China's supply chain is "breaking like nobody has seen before," and that the longer China waits, the harder it will become to put it back into place....


    2. Suggesting his pressure had brought China back to the negotiating table, Trump said that his Chinese counterpart had no choice but to agree to a trade deal with the US.

    Using the "Psycho" analogy, the victim has no choice but to walk "calmly and obediently" under pressure to the dental chair without waiting for the anesthesia to take effect for the Psycho to extract all his teeth. After the first torture, the victim would be brought not to the negotiating table but the operating table for the extraction of all his finger nails, toe nails, beard, moustache and hair.

    Meanwhile, outside the doorway of the torture chamber, a large group of psychos could be heard shouting: "Gouge out his eyes! Cut off his nose! Cut off his tongue! Amputate his limbs! Bleed him dry! Remove all his organs!"

    3. Mind you, Donald Trump, Peter Navarro, Latino Republican Senator Marco Rubio and other US bipartisan extremists demand nothing less than the so-called structural reforms from China in the so-called trade negotiation. This means that China will be brought back to the era of the past few centuries, ending up in absolute poverty and backwardness without any modern infrastructure and industrial base to rival America.

    Trump will destroy his own country.

    Like Ren Zhengfei said, he does not need America. His firm can survive and prosper without 327 m people out of 7530m people in the world. Why compromise your whole country to suit that small minority? If you had 20 customers and one wanted you to change everything to your disadvantage before trading then you would dump them. You would rather do what the others wanted.

    You know, for a country that hates the US they don't half send a load of their people to trade delegations in the US ...

    "The Inland Revenue is not slow, and quite rightly, to take every advantage which is open to it under the Taxing Statutes for the purposes of depleting the taxpayer's pocket. And the taxpayer is in like manner entitled to be astute to prevent, so far as he honestly can, the depletion of his means by the Inland Revenue" (Lord Clyde: "Ayrshire Pullman Motor Services V Inland Revenue, 1929")

    They don't hate the US, the US military hate them because they profit out of hate. Normal Americans are OK with the Chinese, and some actually go over there to live.

    War = profit. Endless war = endless profiteering. The donor class requires a boogeyman to place between itself and the masses.

    Remember Vietnam? They had to win that war for political reasons. There was so much political capital tied up in it they just could not lose or they would look as weak as a third world tinpot army. The amount of petrochemicals they dumped on that country was phenomenal, and yet they just got picked off one by one, even by kids who recovered the guns from dead Americans. It goes to show you that people over that way are pretty smart, and China has 1.3 billion of them. My reckoning is that every hit they make on China, be it economic or any other kind of hit, it will ricochet around and hit them and not the Chinese. China is now strong enough not to be pushed around by them and they do not like it. It's a pride thing. China has a lot of allies as well. They are providing hundreds of millions of people in hundreds of countries with well-paid jobs, and it is making them money, so around the world China is on good terms, especially those countries who have signed up to the Belt and Road Initiative.

    That's actually my view as well. I've seen it in action with an audience of them. They heard debates on for and against sanctions against China and the fors won by a clear majority. The arguments for were mostly scare stuff, not logical and rational. Americans get scared easily by smooth-talking CIA man and the Chinese are used to trouble so they take it all in their stride. Cowards vs the brave eh?

    Remember Vietnam? Oh yes, and by the way, we did not win, not at all.
