        “he can’t do that.” is (sort of) true, but the president is very powerful with regard to external affairs of the country. And it is true that the federal government “can do that.”

        There is a growing consensus across both parties that China is a problem, and if Congress is on board, then “Yes, we (he) can!” I expect that once the polling comes in (if it has not already), the dems will not take pro-China stances.

        Thus (conniption fits by the pro-China media aside), POTUS should be taken very seriously in this matter: get the hell out of china while you still have your shirt!

      You are right that without a crisis President Trump cannot order companies to get out of China. I take this today as a warning of what is to come and suggesting either they get out or face an “I warned you” a year or two from now. Pretty soon China is going to block companies from removing equipment, then nationalize them.
      Are the American deaths from Fentanyl made in China and smuggled into the USA a crisis?
      China’s military budget is about the same as our trade deficit with China meaning that we are paying for their military buildup. Is that a crisis?

    CoC is concerned ….

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Myron Brilliant, Executive Vice President and Head of International Affairs, U.S. Chamber of Commerce issued the following statement today in response to the escalating trade tensions between the U.S. and China:

    “The U.S. business community has for many years called out the lack of progress in addressing China’s unfair trade practices. The U.S. Chamber has been on the front lines of efforts to resolve these challenges through negotiation and encouraging tough action by the United States government. Despite our concerns, the 40-year old trade relationship between our two countries has been for the most part productive, constructive, and mutually beneficial. U.S. companies have been ambassadors for positive changes to the Chinese economy that continue to benefit both our people.

    “While we share the President’s frustration, we believe that continued, constructive engagement is the right way forward. Time is of the essence. We do not want to see a further deterioration of US-China relations. We urge the administration and the government of China to return to the negotiating table to complete an agreement that addresses concerns over technology transfer practices, intellectual property enforcement, market access, and the globally damaging impact of Chinese domestic subsidies.”

    The thought occurred to me today that China may be intentionally and strategically releasing Fentanyl into the United States to weaken the working class population.

    More generally I think these tweets may leave companies a bit confused since the President likely cannot “order” them to do anything. But with that said I sincerely hope that people are taking a very close, hard look and doing some soul searching about what “made in China” has cost us as a nation.

    I also hope people understand that China has been “peaceful” because of their ability to wage economic war without retaliation for the past 30 years. By this time next year their economy is going to be in tatters. They’ll be desperate for a Trump loss. Absolutely desperate.

          Chinese stubbornness is hard to fathom, we’d think by now they’d be convinced of the President’s determination to rectify trade relations as he’s outlined many times. I guess they just have to learn the hard way, and I suspect saying “the hard way” hardly begins to describe how unfavorable it’s going to be for them.

            From what we have been told and read about, it seems that several high profile Anti-Trumpers have gone over to China (or communicated with Chinese officials) and likely tried to persuade the ChiComs that Trump won’t be re-elected. Those American traitors have likely told the ChiComs to simply dig in, send lots of money to the DemoncRATs, and wait out the 2020 election.

            So it’s up to the ChiComs to decide who to believe…. not that it should be that hard to see who’s been honest so far.

        Lots of Good Reading there Thanks.

        Methinks the Dems and Never-Trumpers are definitely on the Take of Dirty Communist Chinese Drug Money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Some excerpts from there.

        “….China’s plan was to kill Americans with drugs, and they continued that policy, as we built closer ties with them, this is exactly the result you’d expect to see…”

        “Douglass explained that China’s use of heroin during the Vietnam War and the Chinese fentanyl flooding America today aren’t isolated incidents. They are part of a continuing plan in which China uses drugs as a strategic weapon to weaken enemies (Douglass also writes extensively about Moscow’s participation in this same plan).

        He traced this plan’s origins back to 1928, when Mao began distributing opium to destroy domestic non-communists. When Mao took over China in 1949, he expanded operations to Japan. A top Soviet ideologist later observed that China’s strategy was “to disarm the capitalists with the things they like to taste [meaning drugs].”
        ……
        To avoid provoking the United States, Beijing took rudimentary steps to mask their actions. They would often work through proxies such as in Mexico. In addition, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) agents would never identify as such, but rather as mafia, oligarchs, or businessmen, to create the illusion that they were rogue entities.

        Joseph Douglass Jr.’s seminal book, “Red Cocaine,” which takes a courageous look at the drug problem, elaborates on Walt’s 1972 testimony. It’s required reading for anyone who wants to get serious about the problem….”

      You got it. The opoid epidemic follows the Ohio River.

      So, we have Western PA, Eastern Ohio, Northern West
      Virginia, parts of Indiana, Kentucky.

      Look at the industrial capacities of that area 40-50 years
      ago. Steel in Pittsburgh, surrounding areas. Across the
      River in Youngstown, Steubenville. GM plants in Lordstown,
      Warren, metro Cincinnati, Dayton. Ford truck plant in Louisville.

      Not to mention all the related industries, subcontractors, rail
      lines, container ports ( go visit an Ohio River lock sometime
      when the barge traffic locks through).

      Kill off the industries. Kill off the brain trust ( GM, Ford had to
      outsource manual transmission technology 20 years ago.
      The engineers had all retired, or died).

      Kill off the motivation. Kill off the generations: what the new
      workers didn’t catch onto , the older generation would have
      gladly stepped in to help. Can’t do that when they’re dead or
      in rehab.

      Also thought, for the longest time that it was a white genocide
      thing. Look at the demographics, not remotely to the Globalist’s
      liking. But, mainly, it’s the burying of new capablities. Preventing

      Excerpt from a book written in 1956 by A. M. Meerloo MD, (page 56 ‘Rape of the Mind – the psychology of thought control”) :

      “In the hands of a powerful tyrant, this medication into dependency can become extremely dangerous. It is not unthinkable that a diabolical dictator might want to use addiction as a means of bringing a rebellious people into submission. In May, 1954, during a discussion in the World Health Organization, the fact was disclosed that Communist China, while forbidding the use of opium in their own country, was smuggling and exporting it in large quantities to their neighbors, who have consequently been compelled to carry on a constant struggle against opium addiction among their own people and against the possibility which results from use of the drug.”

      “At the same time, according to officials of Thailand who made the charge and requested UN aid, Communist China has been sending all kinds of subversive propagandists into Thailand. Thailand charged that the Chinese were using every device they know to infect the Siamese people with their ideology: brain weakening opium addiction, leaflets, radio, whispering campaigns and so on.”

      After reading this I realized China is simply continuing to do what they know. This time, if opium doesn’t do it, fentanyl. If radio (internet) or leaflets don’t do it, opening up Confucius Centers on or near college campuses should do the trick.

      “The Fed could just buy up all the offshore renminbi. It’s so illiquid that [they] could drive prices [higher] easily,” said Jon Vollemaere, chief executive of R5FX, a trading platform focused on emerging markets. Such a move could have an immediate impact on prices; it would also ensure a violent response from Beijing.

      To be sure, the political fallout would be unprecedented. A unilateral move by the US – highlighted in the middle column in the Morgan Stanley table below – would inflame not just policymakers in Beijing but in Europe too, as Washington could be deemed to be in breach of the commitment among G20 nations to avoid competitive devaluations.

      The final question is what would China do in response? While the PBOC would likely move swiftly to counter any US-led buying of the renminbi, implementing restrictions on the offshore currency would be very costly for Beijing, which unlike the US, can not simply print dollars and would have to raid its currency reserves to offset any direct US currency intervention “It would be a massive . . . loss of face for China if they were forced to impose capital controls,” Vollemaere said.

      So how likely is that the US and China would launch all out currency war at each other in the FX market?

      Last month US Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin said there was no change “as of now” to America’s currency policy but added that a different stance could be considered in the future. To be sure, investors are growing more cautious and are increasingly unwilling to short the yuan over fears of a surprise intervention by the US. One head of a currency trading platform that serves US hedge funds told the FT that his clients have begun to stay away. “They don’t want to be on the wrong side of the Fed.” Something tells us that neither does China.

      For China…

      China I believe is planning some drastic action in Hong Kong is my strong bet. China is run by blood thirsty Communists.

    The media couldn’t get Russia, racism or recession to work so they go back to using FOREIGN INFLUENCE to sway an electorate.

    Just remember, President TRUMP didn’t start this war. China did. He’s just ending it. And yes, he is the Chosen One. WE CHOSE HIM for this job and he’s doing fabulous with his masterful team of KILLERS! Elections have consequences. GET OVER IT!

    Yes, there will be pain, for those who went to bed with China, and especially those who stayed in bed, but that is their issue, not ours.

    They’ve known since the 1980s that this is what Donald J TRUMP would do, and he reaffirmed it a hundred thousand times or two while on the 2015-2016 campaign trail. They’ve had gobs of time to get out.

    No sympathy here.

    There’s no legal authority to “order” US companies to withdraw from China. All this does it prove to China that Trump is frustrated.

    He’s frustrated that his “good friend” Xi has stopped purchasing from our farmers and he’s frustrated that his 10% tariff threat isn’t working with China like it did with Mexico. They’ve simply devalued their currency and neutralized the tariffs. There’s been no scramble to send a delegation to Washington DC to fix things as there was with Mexico.

    Reacting on impulse from anger and with emotion isn’t going to do anything but open the door for someone like Nikke Haley.

    You don’t think so? I remember all the confidence expressed on these boards about keeping the House during the midterms. How did that turn out?

    What will President Trump do when House and Senate vote overwhelmingly to remove his authority to impose these tariffs? Make no mistake, this is coming.

    Like SD says there are billions at stake and Trump’s hyper aggressive negotiation tactics here will either bring about a quick and successful resolution with China or end his reelection chances.

    The majority of the country is not up for this kind of chaos. He’s either going to pull this off or he’s done.

      So as proven time and again, those who underestimate President Trump do so at their own peril. Odds are quite substantial that the President will prevail in his pursuit of eliminating China’s abusive trade practices. In particular the moral campaign to end China’s supplying ungodly amounts of fentanyl to the illicit US market resonates with the American people. Predictably President Trump will be regarded as a hero for his actions and his reelection will be assured.

      I don’t know enough about how tariffs work to comment on Congress’s authority to stop POTUS from imposing additional tariffs, but once DJT drops the tariff hammer I am leaning towards that cannot be changed. I suppose you would prefer going to back to status quo with China? I mean, that’s seems to be the only other alternative here.

      It’ll be a tariff “war” until 2020. China is, as most predicted,, going to wait Trump out. I think POTUS has been very patient, all the while knowing this would probably be what happens.

      Spectre, just get in the back seat and buckle up. Most of the elite millionaire billionaire club have been selling America out for decades. They have reaped the benefits while main street America was pillaged and raped by them and China. Too bad so sad, it’s time for the hammer to come down and it may be painful. President Trump is setting things right because he actually has a moral compass, as opposed to the elitists who just have the ass part of the compass and don’t give a damn who went broke, who was jobless, who was working 3 jobs and had no hope of owning their own home some day or paying off their debt. It is apropos that Obama just bought that filthy rich place in martha’s vinyard while he had decided that, well, main street America will go to the dogs while he was in office.

    He’s talking about manufacturing and by all accounts, companies are already leaving China and setting up shop elsewhere, due to the tariffs. The companies that havent left yet are most definitely looking for alternatives to avoid tariffs.

    THEY ARE ALREADY DOING WHAT HE “ORDERED”.

I searched for American sources and found several but it seems that some of the product they use still comes from China. It would be a huge move and great marketing PR for any company to begin USA manufacturing of all the components used in all popular light bulb styles.

                Yes they do manufacture product there. But read this direct quote from the Cree website:

                “According to Greg, Cree makes all of its chips and LEDs in Durham and most of its lighting products in Wisconsin, but also uses overseas contract manufacturers for portions of its product line. As he explains, even though its first choice is to manufacture domestically, the company strives to optimize where and how it manufactures, based not only on the needs of the product, but also on its market. Products that are large or complex, Greg notes, tend to be manufactured in-house, whereas those that are smaller or simpler tend to be contracted out. He points out that lighting is a local business, in the sense that preferences and standards for fixtures vary from country to country. However, Cree’s LED component business is global and has to compete on a global market.[Bold Emphasis mine]

                What they are very slyly saying here is, the expensive & complex stuff they make in Durham, NC but the simple consumer light bulbs and other products with global appeal come from “Hu-Flung-Puh”. (I’ve long ago learned how to read Corporat-ese 🙂 )
