Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross Discusses Ongoing Trade Initiatives…

U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross gives an interview with CNBC about how the administration’s ongoing trade initiatives are addressing U.S. products and interactions with ongoing congressional stakeholders.

One of the more recent globalist (Wall Street) approaches to fend-off President Trump’s America First trade reset has been to target the ethical position of Secretary Ross; within the interview Ross swats away press reports about his current and prior investments.

    Canada is DEAD! The video SD shared on the previous thread is a must watch. Our President is going to destroy Justin from Canada because of his own stupidity. I don’t know if the Canadian Economy will ever be able to recover.

    Hope our President is considering a WALL on our Northern Border because it is going to be terrible once the MOAB is dropped and the auto sector is taken away and brought back to Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

      We get “snowbirds” from Canada, a lot.
      Winter visitors, come every year, often in RV’s.

      Wonder if this means will get more, or less or if they will just stay?

        You will see fewer snow birds. Their money won’t spend well on our side of the border, unless their income is generated by U.S. investment, or other U.S. activity.

      Fleapore, thank you for this you tube video, I am truly glad there are some clear minded people who are bluntly sounding the alarm about the Truedeau administration’s huge blunder in Ottowa summit meeting. I do remember visiting Canada in the 80’s when their dollar was worth around 70 cents to our dollar and it felt like I was using play money and we felt rich, so it seems we will be back to that again, I do know it will bring the tourist money from the Americans back but that won’t make up for losing what industries that they have now.
      It is a hard lesson to learn.

      Don’t feel terrible for us, Canadians, Flep. Justin’s approval numbers skyrocketed after he slandered and stood up to Prez Trump. Even Justin’s opposition parties sided with Justin.
      The majority of Canadians deserve their fate.

      If Trump stands by his tariffs, Justin will use our money to further subsidize the troubled industries.

          Worse, as G7 was ongoing, the opposition party had a 16-point lead over Justin. After Justin’s rant and opposition support, Justin has an 8-point lead over the opposition.
          One must wonder why the opposition supported Justin. So, they’re pretty much boxed in now and can’t get out of it. They’ll have to support the subsidies. Stupid people.

      fred, Yesterday Wilbur gave congressional pygmies an opportunity to understand this deceit by China.
      It was wonderful, bc they didn’t want to listen, kept trying to interrupt him.
      Love it that he kept talking, and getting it on the record that they HAD been informed.
      All they cared ab was their irrelevant, agenda driven Qs.
      Wilbur wastes a lot of his precious time w/these incompetents.
      Must be part of the plan to be able to say, We DID explain it to you!

    China Says U.S. Swinging a ‘Big Stick’

    China accused the United States of using bullying tactics and blackmail.

    In this April 8, 2018 file photo, a container is loaded onto a cargo ship at a port in Qingdao in east China’s Shandong province. China has accused the United States on Thursday, June 21, 2018, of using pressure tactics and blackmail in threatening to impose tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imports.
    Chinatopix via AP

    “BEIJING (AP) — China on Thursday accused the United States of using bullying tactics and blackmail in threatening to impose tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imports, ramping up criticism that the measures levied in the name of balancing trade would harm both countries’ companies and the world economy.

    Commerce Ministry spokesman Gao Feng said the U.S. was damaging the global trading order and that its methods would harm its own business interests as well as those of trading partners.

    “We oppose the act of extreme pressure and blackmail by swinging the big stick of trade protectionism,” Gao told reporters at a news conference. “The U.S. is abusing the tariff methods and starting trade wars all around the world.”…”

    “its methods would harm its own business interests as well as those of trading partners”

    Oh, you mean the unfair trade deals that have allowed for the ex-filtration of wealth from the USA for the past 25+ years and allowed the obscene profit margins for a few while enriching a few of the 0.1%?

    Well, as “Dirty” Harry Callahan would say, “I am just all broken up about….”

      My DAD used to say and do that with us kids.

      Its a YUGE stick, unbelievable our previous ‘leaders’ gave away such a powerful negotiating tool, and put all their stock in ‘diplomacy’.

      We chastise countries on ‘human rights’, and they ignore us.

      We chastise countries on military actions, and they ignore us.

      But, we attempt to level the field, on TRADE, now we’ve got their attention.

      Countries wanna trade with us, need to trade with us, far more than we need to trade,with them.

      People want to live in the U.S., far more than anywhere else.

      WHY have we been giving these things away, for so many years? Corruption a rigged system. Disgusting.

    Wilbur Ross is just a truly smart and savvy businessman. Didn’t realize how smooth he operates in the political theatre. No nonsense. I learned from CTH’s highlighting Wilbur at Davos, thanks again, CTH. But don’t wait for life liberty levin to praise the man on point with the EU; he has what seems like an ingrained disdain for him, maybe wilburs’ portfolio outperformed the grape ones’, and that’s what soured him. His loss.
    And I still can’t get over how much Wilbur looks my dad. It’s uncanny.

      • Unfortunately, that’s true. He really is very smart and has some great insight, but there are times, like with steel and aluminum tariffs he just goes on and on, with only one theme and doesn’t present the whole picture, never once heard him discuss in in terms of national defense. When he gets into those one-sided rages, I turn him off and put on something more interesting, that guy in Baltimore for example. I only listen in the morning to levin, podcasts from the night before.

      Isn’t he great? I discovered him on TV business shows during the campaign season and was enthralled at the way he could take complex and frankly boring economic stuff and explain it so clearly and simply that even I could understand it. I became a huge fan.

      I was absolutely incredulous and over the moon when PDJT announced him as Commerce Secretary. Usually Presidents appoint these useless academics or bankers and they are just not impressive to me.

      But Wilbur? WOW! The man is like a rock star to me. He is amazing.

    75% (15 min) was on Wilburne’s finances alleging unethical activity. Typical left tactic. They have and are still trying to discredit Pruitt. You can alway tell who in the Trump Administration is being successful by how much fake news is brought up about them.

    Even the final 25% (5 min) was on how bad this trade war is for the US. Wilburne had to explain how the trade agreements restrict the US from obtaining Fair Trade Policies. Of course this is one more reason why we need to get out of all multinational trade agreements.

    Try talking about economics with a high school kid. They are clueless. Apparently the US school system has decided that there will be no instruction on economics, business or finance even on a cursory basis. The socialists that run the education machine have produced a nation of stupid sheep who are illiterate on how the economy works and the US banking system of debt financing.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractional-reserve_banking.

    Katy bar the door if the Fed raises interest rates too fast.The Fed is the villain in the US economy and always is a day late and a dollar short when its comes to fiscal policy. The Fed is the loose cannon on deck and could blow the whole Trump economic recovery.

      Oh c’mon man, be fair! There are only so many hours in the school day. And it takes a lot of time to teach kids to name and identify all 97 genders, comprehend cultural appropriation, identify and battle toxic masculinity, learn to define and identify microagressions, fully comprehend and appreciate how the patriarchy is keeping women enslaved, grasp how important it is to open our borders to everyone who wants to come here, and the like.

      When on earth would they have time to teach things like economics? Especially because everyone knows socialism is the answer. No more information is necessary.
