Wilburine – December 15th a “Good Time” to Apply More U.S. Tariffs on China…

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross appears on Fox Business to discuss the status of the U.S-China trade “negotiations” :::nudge-nudge, wink-wink::: and highlights the ‘phase-1’ fulcrum is China committing to the $50b Ag purchase without condition.  Secretary Ross also notes the December 15th date just happens to be “good timing” if the U.S. team is “forced” to put more tariffs on China.  LOL.

Additionally, Mr. Ross notes the challenge of a strong dollar as it relates to allied nations who are stimulating their own economy by sending us even cheaper stuff, ie. Brazil.

    China is sooo very out of their depth with this administration, and in particular Secretary Ross. The entire team with Secretary Mnuchin, and Trade Representative Lighthizer, is really amazing.

    At least one part of President Trump’s cabinet isn’t actively working to undermine his position. Look at how they work together as a well oiled machine.

    If only the rest of the administration followed President Trump’s lead and performed as well.

    I thank God every day that President Trump holds that office.

      Trump needs to purge any and all Obama holdovers. I believe Bannon told him this day 1 but Trump was likely talked out of it by some swamp dwell in his cabinet.

        I agree, but it is much easier said than done. He is working on the problem, but the tentacles of the Obama octopus went everywhere, then sprouted babies.

        I maintain that Reince Preibus did everything in his power to install RINO never Trumpers in as many positions as possible.

        It is not only Obama holdovers, several problems are Bush holdovers as well.

          And yet Andrew McCabe pulled a ‘gotcha’ on Preibus. Obviously the FBI cabal didn’t consider him an ally.


          • willthesuevi says:

            Of course the FBI cabal used him. He was a gullible idiot.

            Preibus didn’t realize who his real friends were, or more importantly he should have rode for the brand.

            His friends were not the RINO Bushies, let the alone global leftists. (one in the same, really)

            He knows now, what he should have known then.

            Or he coulda’ kept his puppy a$$ on the porch. He did serious damage to President Trump, when POTUS needed him the most.

    I saw idiot Mark Cuban on some show this past weekend. I tho’t he might’ve changed his tune since President TRUMP has been such a FAB President, but NO. Different day, same a-h01e.

    He’s whining because a couple of his shark tank ventures tanked, supposedly because of China tariffs. That’s what you idiots get for doing all your business out of a corrupt country Dude!

    BTW, he thinks Quid Pro Joe is best for our country next. He’s OK with another crook, like The Kenyan and the Clinton’s, is in the White House. Remember, he’s the guy who voted for ILLary even though he knew she’d be a sh1tty President.

    Varney seemed disappointed that Ross didn’t “move the market” during the interview.
    That tells us that Secretary Ross is doing his job exceedingly well (which we already know).

    Wilbur Ross as subtle as teargas💥💥💥; talking of the President..

    “…its great that he has the hammer of December 15th ‘cos that’s a real hammer. It won’t interfere with this Christmas. Nobody is ordering stuff after the 15th of December; retailers have stocked up, so it’s a very good time if we are going to put tariffs on!”

    I still believe China is still holding out hopes that the Wall Street/Rhino’s can get hold of The Don. They will need to make some more rockets to send over to Rocket Man and soon.

    The US is making the Dollar go up because of the Fed’s basic interest rates and Trump’s economy.

    And now Brazil is supposed to meddle in it’s own currency markets to help them? The US can come here and buy high and sell low if they want currency manipulation, with their own taxpayer’s dollars.

    This is so stupid, requiring currency fixing to subsidize the United States.

    Doesn’t make any sense. The opinion of the host makes sense, though.


    • willthesuevi says:

      Brazil doesn’t have to participate.

      The US subsidized the rest of the entire world for the last 50 years on the backs of our citizens. ‘Bout time the field is leveled.

      China and Russia now both know AGAIN the dollar is STILL the currency of the world.

      Brazil has recently been getting closer to CCP. Making deals with them etc. We are trying to break the CCP to save us and the rest of humanity from communist thugs. Bolsanaro either picks the right team or gets run off the field no matter how cordial the relationship with the President is.

    VSGPDJT is the most successful at his strengths. The economic team he has assembled is amazing. Notice how the msm ignores the successes against the grand panda.
    No matter how much Nancy tries to undercut VSGPDJT, he is still beating the panda. He brought Mexico to heel and if she would pass the USMCA, it would be codified. Her only alternative is if we withdraw from NAFTA. I’m for that If she cannot find time for a vote.

      jimboct: Nancy is definitely trying to put her “touches” on the USMCA. See the story from Fox Business https://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/usmca-trade-agreement-deal-status-pelosi

      In her comments for the story, one stood out to me: …”Not just a good deal for American workers but for all workers so that everyone can thrive. That has an impact on our economies on migration and international relations and again puts a better face on globalization which is inevitable, as we know.” Remember, globalization needs to be defended!


      • GP says:

        FTA `above Nancy says:

        ”Not just a good deal for American workers but for all workers so that everyone can thrive. That has an impact on our economies on migration and international relations and again puts a better face on globalization which is inevitable, as we know.”

        Read that again please.

        I’ve read several articles on the “poison pills” in the USMCA. Maybe Trump knows about the “poison pills” and is thinking let’s pass it anyway and then fix it 2020-2024.

    NPR ran a story today about a MN speaker company https://www.miscospeakers.com/ and how it’s been detrimentally affected by 25% tariff on components it gets from China. Of course, public radio seeks out anyone affected by tariffs. As with most reporting, it was devoid of specifics. What percentage of its total cost are Chinese-made components? What percentage of gross sales are those costs? Have the prices for those components fallen (China’s method of remaining competitive despite the tariffs)? Emotional reportage like this adds nothing to public understanding. I know it’s just supposed to gin up opposition to Orange Man.
