Well, they cannot later claim they were not warned.  In a series of stunning tweets today, President Trump directly tells U.S. companies manufacturing goods in China, they need to make rapid plans for exit.

    POTUS just secured his Re-Election.
    … NO one else would/could have prepped the battlefield or launched the Exit-China campaign.
    … EVERY one else would immediately quit or fail upon taking office.

    One note re: the ECCFs (Fedex et al) reusing fentanyl shipments. I know this is old fashioned, and the law hasn’t been enforced in at least 30 years, but they are supposed to be heavily penalized if drugs are discovered in international shipments they have accepted for delivery. If we wiuld enforce tge law, then the eccfs would inspect the shipments before accepting for transport

      We’d think the administration could easily have customs inspectors step up detection of drug shipments via carriers. I’d agree a few publicized cases where carriers are penalized would effectively end the availability of easy transport of illicit drugs in the US. It’s a great idea—I hope officials are paying attention!

        I am not sure that penalizing US companies for China’s policy is a better idea than
        penalizing China itself for its actions. Place the primary burden on China, not on US companies.

      President Trump talking about fentanyl shipments is key here, because he described them as coming to the US via UPS and FedEx. So if he orders customs to search each package and container coming from China, containers will pile up in Long Beach, LA and Oakland until they are full, and trade with China stops entirely.

        Although……. I must admit…….
        …..that each time the US CoC feels compelled to publicly disagree with the President’s policies or statements, their own statements pull them steadily closer to fully exposing their outright alignment with America’s trading competitors rather than with American workers.

        And I am always a bit curious – but not angry or frustrated – as to why the President has not yet taken them over the coals in a Tweet barrage or as part of a very public speech (at a rally or a topic-appropriate venue) and told Americans exactly what the CoC has been doing to undermine MAGA. My guess is that he doesn’t yet want to expose and shame Mitch McCorporatist and the DeceptiCONs because he needs their support, as limited as it is…

      HOWEVER, as far as the easy destruction (or SUBMISSION) of China is concerned, they are potentially our THERMONUCLEAR BOMB.

    Interesting that he uses the word “order.”

    The President can’t “order” private business to do anything. Of course he knows this; but why did he phrase it that way?

    It must be for the Chinese audience, and President Xi specifically. He might not appreciate that the US President doesn’t have any authority to order American businesses around like Xi does; and it might provoke the Chinese into taking steps against American firms which will only serve to hasten their exit.

    President Trump just slapped the panda mask right off the red dragon.

    This is a master troll. Treepers would be well advised to remember that Dems and Uniparty CoC will take PDJT literally but not seriously, while Trumplicans should take PDJT seriously but not literally.

    Trading With Enemy Act of 1917, 12USC§95 and now more importantly also 50USC§1-44, originally applied only in time of declared war. Then was modified to apply in ‘military’ national emergencies (Korean War, Bosnia). Then modified again to apply generally in National Emergencies declared under the National Emergencies Act of 1976, 50USC§1601-1651, most recently used by PDJT to declare the Southern border illegal alien national emergency. Then when the 1977 International Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977 was passed, 50USC§1701-1707, it was again modified back toward ‘military’ emergencies. It currently only applies to Cuba—the travel and trade restrictions.

    PDJT would need to declare a China trade emergency under NEA (unlikely), and then invoke provisions of IEEPA (more unlikely). He could for example impound foreign Chinese gov or individual assets under US jurisdiction—like the targeted Iranian sanctions he has put on. Very unfriendly to Xi. He could also, with humanitarian exceptions, prohibit exports to China. Very unfriendly to US. Finally, he could block (embargo) imports form China when they reach US jurisdiction. A disaster for Tim Cook and Apple.

    So, IMO he is intentionally sending three messages via this trolled tweet ‘order’:
    1. To China, you just placed tariffs on an additional ~$70 billion of US to China exports , I don’t like it, and things could get rapidly much worse if you don’t get serious about the trade deal. That is a negotiating ploy counterpunch.
    2. To US supply chains in China, better hurry up with your restructuring. Hurry upmwith the China pain, already.
    3. To G7, this *hit is real. Deal with it.
