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?


Well you, me, Trump and everyone else knows he can't do that, BUT it is a strong statement. Do you disagree that American companies should seek other places based on how China acts and works to control the world?

I seems all you say is orange man bad, and never really go past your TDS to look at the actual problem he is talking about.

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.

/facepalm



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.



Everyone huh? lol. You really need to research that. Even if what you said was true, which it isn't, Trump would be putting Country before Company. He must really love his country. Would you like to change your mind now?


You're right, the "official" hats are made in Carson, CA. I got it mixed up with his Trump 2020 banners and all of his and his daughters signature line of clothes.

Video of Trump banners being made in China:

My bad.

You know there's a word for when the government tries to control private companies means of production..

Commu.. Communis...

Dang I forgot.



Communism is when the govt owns the means of production. i.e state ownership.
It's actually Fascism where the govt controls private company decisions through hyper regulation and control.


You're right. Trump is being a fascist and not a communist.

I admit I was wrong.


Yes, the US Govt has been acting in a fascist manner for many years wrt to controls on Private Corporations and it seems Trump is continuing that trend. Not good.

With China, it's one of those situations, unfortunately, where the US are left with the difficult decision between maintaining the freedoms inherent in their society and defending against a quite clear attack by a China who are taking advantage and have been for many years.

For the US, I don't think there is a middle ground. Accept economic defeat through foul play or fight and accept that free market principles don't work when dealing with cheats.

It looks to me that the more "left-leaning" folks want to side with China and it's regime instead of the US of A.

Now I might be wrong, but I never have been before, so there is that.

And look at this, same day news: He's challenging the US Constitution again after being told in no ambiguous terms that it was unconstitutional what he was doing. Now he wants another attempt at it.


President Donald Trump is challenging a federal appeals court decision that ruled he violated the U.S. Constitution by blocking people whose views he disliked from his Twitter account.

In court papers filed late Friday by the U.S. Justice Department, Trump sought a rehearing by the full 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals calling the 3-0 decision “fundamentally misconceived.” Trump has more than 63 million followers on Twitter and often uses his account to make significant announcements.

Yep - the left is for Iran and China's interests first.. Mexico too... in fact anyone but their own country, which they seem to utterly despise (unless they have control of the levers of power).

Trump's suits and ties are made in China. Ivanka's clothing line and her shoes are made in China.





So, what I want to know is, who's he talking at?

Doing China favors in your business deals AFTER knowing just how awful their human rights and labor violations are is akin to partying with Epstein AFTER he got busted for pedo-ing. Whatever lets you sleep at night.

The only upright stance on China trade is a hard one even if it hurts your pocketbook.

What do you expect when you impede on free market. Its basic economics when it comes to FREE trade road blocks and trade tariffs do not work. It always backfires.

What is dictatorial about challenging a court decision via appeal?
Maybe you need to rethink your definition of a dictatorship. You've really not even grasped the basics.

Actually the market for Trump merchandise bottomed out around a year ago. Nobody is really buying anything anymore. Apart from some gas stations in West Virginia, you aren't going to sell a lot.

The new thing is Mitch McConnell merchandise. I'm trying to get the rights for a premade Moscow Mitch liquor drink right now.

Lol.

I wish people would just for once research China just a little. It doesn't take too long before it is scary as hell in about 10 different directions.

He is the president of the United states right now, he has a lot of power, more than any Senator has. Obama had the same power when he was president and forced laws to be passed that were unreasonable at the end of his term. That is what goes on in the Whitehouse. Normal capital Hill activities.

Some people might just also prefer the middle ground, maybe the 2 nations could sit down and try to act rationally rather than emotionally and with tit for tat tariff increases in an ever repeating cycle of 'but they are worse than us' both nations would benefit from working together, would they not?

Samsung was founded by Lee Byung-chul in 1938 as a trading company. Over the next three decades, the group diversified into areas including food processing, textiles, insurance, securities, and retail. Samsung entered the electronics industry in the late 1960s and the construction and shipbuilding industries in the mid-1970s; these areas would drive its subsequent growth. Following Lee's death in 1987, Samsung was separated into four business groups – Samsung Group, Shinsegae Group, CJ Group and Hansol Group. Since 1990, Samsung has increasingly globalised its activities and electronics; in particular, its mobile phones and semiconductors have become its most important source of income. As of 2017, Samsung has the 6th highest global brand value.[5]
