The sad part is people who hate Trump want our economy to collapse. They would rather Americans suffer to the point of death just to see him gone.
BS...I have my life invested in this economy. It's trumps trickle down approach, the enormous deficit, and his total lack of diplomatic skills that will ultimately bring the market crashing down and disposable income to totally dry up and kill the small retail business man. Just like trumps tariffs are killing the farmers in the midwest. No place to store the corn and soybeans..now just rotting on the ground with no market.

Some here don't like Trump's China Trade Policy. Fine.
What is your idea to combat the trade Imbalance with China? China has had a free ride building their economy the last 30 years, why would they want to change the built in advantages they have had?
How do we combat China's disregard of intellectual property and constant economic espionage? How about their currency manipulation or product dumping?

Like it or not the world we live in today is a global economy, we can't just go back 50 years in time. Isolationism will not work, look what happened last time we tried that. Trump will end up bringing the whole house of cards down and bankrupt this country just like he went bankrupt 4 times in his life. Make stuff on our own again? We can even get millennials to get off their ass to work, who is gonna do the work? Oh yeah robots. We're screwed.
And another thing... When I mention the stock market breaking its own record AGAIN, you lefties tell me the stocks don't matter. But when it drops 1,000 points, you guys make a thread about it to blame Trump?

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China plans to remove soybean oil, rapeseed oil and palm oil from its import tariff quota management, its commerce ministry said on Wednesday. The news comes after the ministry said on Tuesday Chinese companies had stopped buying U.S. agriculture products in response to U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision last week to impose tariffs on another $300 billion of Chinese imports, sharply escalating a tit-for-tat trade dispute between the world’s largest economies. The commodities were removed from a draft tariff quota management list posted on the official website of the Ministry of Commerce, which means they will not be subject to restrictions which may be exacted on other products such as wheat, corn and rice. The draft is open to public feedback until Aug. 22.
