He went full dictator. And everyone knows you don't go full dictator.


“We don’t need China and, frankly, would be far better off without them. The vast amounts of money made and stolen by China from the United States, year after year, for decades, will and must STOP,” Trump tweeted.

“Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies HOME and making your products in the USA.”

Forget free markets, forget private companies making their own decisions without government control, States deciding how to regulate and manage themselves. Big government everywhere you look. Trump's hand in everything.


The U.S. Chamber of Commerce rebuffed Trump’s call, urging “continued, constructive engagement” so that the world’s two largest economies could quickly reach a trade deal.

“Time is of the essence. We do not want to see a further deterioration of US-China relations,” Myron Brilliant, executive vice president and head of the business group’s international affairs, said in a statement.

China on Friday said it would impose retaliatory tariffs on $75 billion of U.S. goods, targeting crude oil for the first time and renewing punitive duties on American-made autos.


So what do the supporters of free trade and open markets believe? Should a president order private companies how to operate? Is there any room for free market capitalism in a Trump era?

So please link to me the law that was passed, the EO that was signed, the law that was changed?

Or are you one of those silly people that think that a tweet is somehow now a law, according to a panel of experts at CNN?

Christ wept.. it's no wonder the Democratic party is such a mess.

Their cult followers appear to be incapable of critical thinking.

You're absolutely right!

Although, the irony will be that the white flag you want waving is probably made in China.

So it's ok to demand entire industries have their business models usurped by some new green deal for the feels, but demanding companies seek alternatives to a demonstrably hostile, manipulative, and exploitative host country is going too far?? It is literally a request to bring production home, where it will benefit this nations citizens.

I mean, if your ok with taxing the rich on the sole basis of being rich, I cannot fathom how you see this demand as an issue. I hope POTUS Trump is honored with an Andrew Jackson moment sooner than later and strikes one of his enemies down in a duel to the death.

I agree with you. His words don't mean anything. And it also bring a smile to my face to know that every MAGA hat is made in China.

The only thing Trump "Orders" really is from a McDonald's menu.

But I thought The United States was the world's premier free-market economy?

Way to promote such Trump ya numpty.
LoL

End of the day big business listens to politicians about as much as the bankers do, which is to say not at all really.

DOJ: Trump's tweets are 'official statements of the President'


The Department of Justice is treating President Trump’s frequent Twitter posts as official statements, attorneys for the government wrote in a new federal court filing.

The Dow is down 573 points perhaps on the news that Representative Seth Moulton, whoever that may be, has dropped out of the 2020 Presidential Race!

If you got used to reading articles before replying you'd know that the article even writes about that:


It’s unclear what legal authority Trump would be able to use to compel U.S. companies to close operations in China or stop sourcing products from the country.


That is basically making fun of Trump while keeping it professional. We all know his words mean nothing, but that does not stop him trying to be dictatorial.

Nobody taking him seriously does not mean he's not trying to be one.

...or better.. depending on how you look at it.
China are commerce cheats. They are also guilty of subjecting their workers to low wages and horrible working conditions.

Leftists complain about corporations and their thirst for maximising profit above all else and then as soon as Trump tries to take them on and get them to forego cheap labour options , all of a sudden they're on the side of the corporations.


For what it's worth, I think Trump is wrong to try and directly control the decisions of private companies, but leftists bleating about it are just showing their hypocrisy once again.

Yeah, because we really need more junk products loaded with lead...

Not to mention patent infringement on just about every damn product in the world.

And the awful slave labor camps that build your iphone...

All thats terrible...

Please get your head out of your ass.
