Quick Trade Talk – President Trump Talks To Charles Benson Prior to Foxconn Groundbreaking….

President Trump often holds local media Q&A’s when discussing specific local aspects to larger trade and economic initiatives.  In this quick interview with Charles Benson President Trump discusses the Foxconn deal (more on that will follow), and the larger issue surrounding a global trade reset objective (important video below).

As steps are taken within the America-First economic initiatives, many people are overlooking President Trump’s ultimate goal of a complete global reset in trade.  The Trump administration wants all trade tariffs and trade barriers removed so that all nations can compete on an even field.

In order to achieve that goal, POTUS Trump is applying the process of reciprocity; assigning an identical U.S. trade standard as the country being confronted.

The international community cannot negotiate (in good faith), from an adversarial position, against an identical trade policy they apply toward the U.S.

However, until today no President has ever called out the global trade hypocrisy; let alone challenged it directly.   President Trump will not back down from this approach. The international trade community is just now realizing that fact.

Within the process of negotiation to achieve this reset, President Trump begins to apply the principles of reciprocal trade tariffs.  This is the first phase; this is where we are now.

Each nation is now recalculating all of their economic trade analyses, using the new Trump applied reciprocity-initiatives as changes to old equations and calculations.  The baselines have changed.

As each nation quantifies the potential for damage, they formulate a plan to avoid the worst-case scenario.  Remember, access to the $20 trillion U.S. market is required in order for almost every trade partner to survive; this is ultimately Trump’s leverage.

Each partner will have to concede to terms to continue access to the U.S. market.  The terms are simple: “Free, Fair and Reciprocal” trade; on every sector (except national security); without government subsidies.  In essence, a completely free global market.

Within the interview, President Trump notes: “the longer it takes, the better deal we are going to make for our country.”  In essence, as each nation tries to retain their current benefit status; the longer they wait to apply reciprocity; the bigger the negative ramifications from not accepting the current terms.  This is the key point:

      Your absolutely right FL_GUY! Our President is truly sitting on a Royal Flush while the rest of the world and the RINOs, CoC, Globalist, MSM etc. are stuck with an Ace High. They can bluff, scream, cry, yell, curse all they want but in the end our President is going to win!

      How can you fight or argue with the concept of reciprocal trade. The hypocrisy is actually very amusing. Our President has been talking about reciprocal trade for over a year. Americans absolutely understand the concept and a vast majority agree with it. If you are going to have tremendous tariffs on our goods, we are going to place the same on yours. What is fair is fair. You reduce your tariffs to zero and we will reduce ours to zero. The ultimate choice is on each and every country.

      That is the beauty of it. We are doing to them what they are doing to us. I absolutely love it! The longer you wait, the less access you will have and it won’t matter if you don’t take our goods because we will be swimming in all the winning!

        I remember when he first broached this, he called it “mirror” tarrifs, whatever you do to us, we do RIGHT back.
        Brilliant! And all the laying the groundwork, even during the Transition, meeting with and talking to CEO’s, must have been hinting to them what was coming.

        By repatriating offshore billions, etc he was building up the economy, so we could TAKE the ‘little hit’, with minimal pain.

        So smart!
        Anyone know: is there any limit to the Presidents authority on foreign trade?

        Can Congress, or the courts stop what he’s doing, or slow it down with lawsuits, or is his authority absolute?

        Saw,a post, here recently, about Congress trying to pass legislation, requiring Congress to ‘sign off’ on trade agreements. Anything TO that?

          When it comes to 232 and 301, there is nothing Congress can do to stop him or eliminate the tariffs issued. They can’t stop him on leaving NAFTA. The KORUS deal was done in such a way Congress doesn’t have to vote on it.

          However, a new NAFTA and other deals may require their vote but good luck telling the American people you are voting NO because it is unfair to the other country.

        Which raises the question… Why is MX retaliating against us for the steel and aluminum tariffs? I looked on all kinds of official trade websites, ours and Mexico’s, world steel production and export tables, and I CAN FIND NO STEEL OR ALUMINUM EXPORTS FROM MX TO US… None at all.

        So, if they are not getting hit by tariffs, at al, why are they targeting us with “reciprocal tariffs”?? Do they really want tick us off like that, with NAFTA hanging in the balance?

            No, that is a given. But there stated reason for imposing the “retaliatory tariffs” is to “retaliate” for specifically the METALS TARIFFS. So… If those metals tariffs have no effect on MX, what are they retaliating against? Those tariffs are not affecting them one whit. Something else is going on.

            I M sure this oddity has not escaped Lighthizer , but it IS incredibly stupid.

    Trump Comes to WI to Tout Foxconn Amid Harley Flap

    An announcement this week by Harley-Davidson that it is moving some production of motorcycles overseas to avoid tariffs is fueling unease in Wisconsin.


    In this Aug. 31, 2013 file photo, Gov. Scott Walker laughs before riding in the Harley-Davidson 110th Anniversary Parade in Milwaukee, Wis. The ceremonial groundbreaking for a massive $10 billion Foxconn factory complex in Wisconsin was supposed to be evidence that the manufacturing revival fueled by President Donald Trump’s “America First” policy is well underway. But an announcement this week by Harley-Davidson that it is moving some production of motorcycles overseas to avoid tariffs is fueling unease among voters in Wisconsin _ a state Trump barely won and where fellow Republican Gov. Scott Walker is on the ballot.

    “MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The ceremonial groundbreaking for a massive $10 billion Foxconn factory complex in Wisconsin was supposed to be evidence that the manufacturing revival fueled by President Donald Trump’s “America First” policy is well underway.

    But an announcement this week by Harley-Davidson that it is moving some production of motorcycles overseas to avoid tariffs is fueling unease in Wisconsin — a state Trump barely won and where fellow Republican Gov. Scott Walker is on the ballot in just over four months.

    The contrasting news — Harley is based just 30 miles (48.28 kilometers) north up the interstate in Milwaukee — provides the backdrop for Trump’s visit Thursday where he’ll speak at the Foxconn site and hold a closed-door fundraiser just a couple miles away from Harley’s headquarters.

    Walker is counting on a strong economy as part of his case for re-election. Wisconsin’s unemployment is at record-low levels and Walker argues that the Foxconn project, the largest economic development deal in state history, shows that Wisconsin is on the right track…..”

      A lefty rag trying to spin a decision by stupid HD corporate leadership as President Trump’s fault. The truth is the HD people had this planned long before President Trump and they are getting foreign incentives to betray the American worker. They are operating like O is still tearing the country down rather than contributing to building the country back up under President Trump. JMHO

        Why in the world would Harley-Davidson need protection from tariffs if they manufacture the bike in the U.S.? I think there are two likely answers.

        First maybe Americans are not buying Harley’s in the number they used to, so HD either needs to build manufacturing plants abroad or see the prices of their famous All-American bikes rise due to tariffs from other countries on exports. Question: why might they have lost the American customer?

        Or, the more interesting answer — one that Treepers suggested a few days ago (sorry no link) — HD is not using American-made parts in its All-American bike. So tariffs on this manufacturing from abroad will significantly affect the price of their bike.

        Either answer suggests that HD is in serious decline as the All-American bike How sad. And how telling. They are sneaks. They rest on their reputation and bring in (lesser) parts parts from abroad because the U.S. has rewarded sneaks in the past. How bad.

          You hit the nail on the head with regards to materials sourcing. But I wouldn’t blame HD. They like everyone else has to make the best decision based on realities. Especially under Oboobie’s regime in which he was squeezing the life out of many an industry. They did what they had yo, however distasteful.

          And yes, while our economic ship is turning, it will take time for various industries to assess and formulate their approach.

          That said, HD may well still need to build plants overseas exclusively for those markets. Same, same as BMW build their cars here for our market. I think Trump knows that, but needles them to make their case. IOW, do the right thing for the right reason and not for the wrong reasons, otherwise, those wrong reasons will bite them in the keister.

            AH-C – Yes, I believe this is what Sundance said earlier about HD and why they build overseas. Trump probably understands this but doesn’t like it just the same, so he needles them a bit.

      HD is owned by Wall Street. The top stockholder is a firm that includes major investments in Netflix, Amazon and Microsoft.. So there ya go.. They think they are harming Sir Trump by moving production to the EU.. A drop in the bucket.. Let ’em go..

      People who own HD stock need to seriously consider bailing out.. Look who’s running it, they are bent on destroying old American icons. Their dealerships are going to start looking like NFL stadiums – empty..

      It’s ok though.. It now makes room for a new American builder to rise up and take its place..

      Somebody bring back Hodaka !! It is a prime time for another Japanese – American venture.. They could start with a first ever new generation street bike.. The could call it the “Wilburine”.. Lol..

      I remember back in the day the Hodaka Combat Wombat.. Made in America.. (Along with the Husqvarna 400 Cross and a few others it was one of THE bikes to own.. The Hodaka just because it was cool, unique and American made.. it would turn heads just because of what it was).

  12. CHINA’s now on FULL TRADE ALERT as they realize they’re CORNERED and SCREWED:
    [Symptomatic of what’s RAMPAGING across the GLOBAL-RIGGED TRADE SYSTEM]

    They’re starting to PANIC in emerging impotence
    … as they can only watch Trump’s unpredictable moves on Geopolitical Chess Boards of his own invention!

    He’s laid out America’s 30-page list of China Cheating that they have to END.
    … Just like Trump’s North Korean Denuclearization Model.
    • Completely
    • Verifiably
    • Irreversibly
    … What a tangled web they wove 😳
    … How many rice bowls must now disappear 🤯

    They’re realizing NO TRADE DEAL with Trump
    … until their TRADE SURPLUS DISAPPEARS.

    Their ACQUISITIONS from, INVESTMENTS from and EXPORTS to other Nations are evaporating
    … as Trump begins “to engage with our allies and partners to support their efforts to combat harmful technology transfer and intellectual property theft.”

    Now CHINA’s MIDEAST INFLUENCE and ENERGY are up for grabs
    … as Trump nails a Summit with Russia just 30 days after the Summit with Kim
    • Russian Deal on Iranian DEWEAPONIZATION?
    • Revelations of China as Iran’s WEAPONIZATION ENABLER?
    • Replacement of Iran’s Mullah Tyrants with a People’s Republic?
    • Resets of Energy-for-Weapons Export Deals with China?

    It’s dawning on China that “Time is on OUR side”
    • Our Trade Deficit is dissipating.
    • It’s taking forever to unwind the Scale and Scope of Cheating & IP Theft
    • It’ll take another forever to construct Verification mechanisms for Irreversibility
    • With every passing month the Tariffs & Sanctions ratchet up another notch
    • As each ratchet delivers UNEVEN effects and political CHAOS at ANOTHER LEVEL

    China is about to realize the CHINA TRADE DEAL will come LAST!

    China’s BELT and ROAD INITIATIVE is approaching MELTDOWN.

      • With America
      • With Cheatin China
      • With every Corporation and Export Industry within their borders

      It takes every one of them a QUARTER or TWO to sort through each Trump Action
      • With their Administrations to guess at the impact and map options for action
      • With every Business and Political Constituency to cope with and minimize disruptions
      • Across every International Supply-to-Market Chain to renegotiate among options

      But WAIT … the CHAOS is MULTIPLYING faster than they can COPE
      • President Trump is laying on another Tariff at ONE-MONTH Intervals
      • They can’t even MEASURE the effects for TWO MONTHS thereafter
      • Only to learn that options and sources of leverage have become obsolete

      By Q4 Trading Partners will be BEGGING President Trump to give them a way out!

    That will mean losing ‘control’ for the globalists.

    The entirety of the multilayered and manifold ‘schemes’ all work upward to the benefit of the globalists puppet-masters. The entire system has been designed that way, the same model as the Mafia families.

    From the street level crime (drugs, human trafficking, organized auto theft, you name) to the governmental crime and false ‘charity’ foundation crimes to the leaders of nations crimes, to the real powers behind the puppet leaders of most nations today, the profit from all this lawlessness works its way up to the top, just as it does in the Mafia.

    What Trump is proposing is the elimination of their entire business model AND their ‘protection’ racket.

    It’s gonna be fun!
