ㅤ"President Trump last week raged about China’s high tariffs against American products. The Mainstream media breathlessly predicted a devastating trade war — one the MSM gleefully declared the U.S. would lose — and said the aggressive move would devastate the stock market. Neither happened. In fact, the exact opposite occurred.
ㅤOn Tuesday, Chinese President Xi Jingping announced plans to ‘open’ China and vowed to ‘significantly’ lower tariffs on automobile imports from the U.S."…

ㅤ”The first 2.5 gigawatts of imported solar cells will be exempt from the tariffs.

ㅤ”Although China’s announcement on Thursday didn’t refer to the tax cuts, China’s vice finance minister vowed to ‘take proactive measures’ in response to the legislation.
ㅤThe Republican tax bill included a steep corporate income tax cut — from 35 to 21 percent — that the Trump administration pushed as a way to make the United States more competitive and draw companies away from nations with lower tax rates.”
ㅤô¿ô …Whoa! I kind of liked Schumer because he is one Dem that refrained from personal attacks on the President and stuck to lambasting Trump’s policies, which is what Chuck should be doing.
ㅤApparently less than a week after the Dems’ election victories, the DP leadership is getting desperate again.

ㅤô¿ô …Ridiculous and a hope killer for middle-income American’s. Jinping is exploiting the ignorant who have little knowledge of world economic history.
ㅤChina is “opening up” because it’s currently in China’s best interest to open up. They easily might reverse their official trade policy in less than a year.
ㅤBut it is currently NOT in the best interest of middle-income Americans for the USA to remain “opened up,” especially to China. That may change in the future as well.
ㅤThe fact that CNBC is praising Jinping shows how ignorance and bias abounds in the mainstream media. You probably won’t hear the WSJ praising Jinping for his line of crap.
