Hahaha they are basically saying they will starve themselves in protest, it really does seem like something the Chinese government would do, starve their people.

i love this go Trump.

the US would crumble if Trump even infringes on trade laws with china. and im glad to see Trump cult followers thinking China needs the US.
our debt is staggering, we dont manufacture anything, we import most perishable consumables.
if a bad deal goes down with China, its not like any other nation will be quick to make deals with the US, in fact other nations will pounce on the opportunity to grab the US by the bullocks once our lifeline, China, expunges us.


go Trump.
make America Great again.
thats why i voted for you

next, all of our military installations abroad will be asked to pack up and go, then allies will be neutral

meanwhile, the US population is getting more united with riots, hate speech, death threats and massive wall which will undoubtedly be built by American citizens and we will charge Mexico for it.
cant wait.

Apple will just move the production to Taiwan. Their components are made there anyways.



Only if it is cheaper to put the things together.


Its not about money its about having qualified workers

OMG! This is too funny. First off let me state i have no problems with Chinese people in general so don't call me racist. This is a government versus government. U.S. versus Chinese consumers thing.

This is just part of the OP'S original quote " As an example of earlier tariff-tit-for-tats, the Global Times pointed toward the 35 percent tariffs imposed in 2009 on Chinese tires. China retaliated with its own tariffs on U.S. car parts and chicken. "

Shoddy tires and as punishment tariffs on car parts that don't put your life in danger. F-me even Chinese people don't want Chinese car parts. Also have you ever seen Chinese chickens? Scrawny weird looking bird's go ahead govt force your people to eat your nasty a$$ chickens instead of tasty American chickens. (Spare me the inhumane treatment speech) And really is that the best you can do? iPhone sales will drop.
What's the trade difference between what America buys and vice versa. The Chinese government's biggest fear is about to come true no cash influx for products that put lives at risk globally. No more building of manufacturing plants where they're trusted with valuable secrets and then build an empire counterfeiting pretty much anything.
Made in America might mean something again. I can just see the Chinese government threatening a nuclear launch if we don't FedEx a 20 piece family meal in a few years. So by all means do make America great. But carefully backstabbing people are everywhere.

I wonder, will this news make all the Apple fanboys freak out and take the violent protests to a whole new level?

china didn't have qualified workers when companies started moving over there, they had to learn. and judging by the the quality of goods coming from there now, they still haven't learned and not very qualified.

How many Chinese made 'hoverboards' exploded this Christmas. How about all the other cheap ass cloned garbage they sell. Apply tariffs and watch them all in the region start fighting over production. No more monopolies. They could also move production to India or maybe it is time for Apple to pony up and start importing parts and building them in the US.

This is how things should be done. So many are acting like Trump is being a bully and he is not. He is trying to allow the US a foothold instead of bending over without a kiss for the last 15 years.

Without the US exporting Soybeans and drinking water to China they would starve to death in weeks. China imports billions of dollars worth of soybeans to feed to pigs and fish so without it they would have nothing to feed their food.

And don't get me started on their water. One drink from one of their rivers and you would prob get lead poisoning.

And yes China could start growing their own soybeans again but what would they water them with?

... keep in mind this is the state run newspaper in China, similar to our new york times.


I don't know whether to laugh at that, or be sad because of how true it is.

China has far farrrr more to lose than the US, and it's clearly stated in this article, they are sending empty threats and hoping that Trump was/is bluffing.

Wow. At least you guys are all showing yourselves for who you truly are. Not that it was a big mystery to many of us.

I wouldn't show liberals the full version. It might explode heads with the common sense Trump displays when talking about China.

our debt is staggering, (Remember that FBI warning before you watch a movie do you think that 10 million copies were produced in China? At the maximum fine of 250K per infraction that's a 2.5 Trillion dollar fine) we dont manufacture anything, (yes we do. Factories could be built/revamped pretty quick if need be.) we import most perishable consumables.(So we have to eat more of the foods we export for a while and some people will just have to do without cans of salted fish anuses in a savory sauce)
if a bad deal goes down with China, its not like any other nation will be quick to make deals with the US, (Maybe) in fact other nations will pounce on the opportunity to grab the US by the bullocks once our lifeline, China, expunges us. (HA! China has America by the danglers if they let go THEY crash that's why i think they're so terrified of being "scratched" off)


go Trump.

thats why i voted for you

next, all of our military installations abroad will be asked to pack up and go, (Maybe) then allies will be neutral
(I think Russia would make for a better military ally than all the other countries in the world combined. As long as our intentions are not to attack or fix the problems of other countries in military ways and just support our mutual intentions and not meddle into each others internal politics)
meanwhile, the US population is getting more united with riots, hate speech, death threats (That is obviously because of Obama/Trump/Clinton and not some angry citizens inciting others to commit crimes) and massive wall which will undoubtedly be built by American citizens and we will charge Mexico for it. (But until it is i am selling giant slingshots to fling em' over the border)
cant wait.

I phones are # anyway


they're a good product, but their fan base is quickly eroding. Its old, there's better alternatives now.

America rules the world when it comes to consumerism, technology, innovation and creativity. When China's people beg and plead for the latest US product and the government refuses... it will trigger civil strife.
