    They didnt take anything from us. We sent them our jobs and technology by our own free will.
    That was surrendered long ago.

    I don't think all NGO's are "bad". Just that unfortunately many are being used as political "trojan horses".

    From the look of it, the trade negotiation is starting to look a little like the nuclear disarmament negotiation with north korea - just to drag and waste time, and in the meantime, allow retailers to stock up on their goods and consumers to buy whatever they want to buy for Xmas.

    But with CNY just a month after Xmas, if there's no deal, a lot of Chinese migrant workers will be very unhappy if they can't get their wage and year end bonus.

    Trump wants to take this trade war to 2020 election... he wants to run 2nd term in oval office... does he even know that he's already in impeachment process?! just to show that he's just a child

    He’s not in an impeachment process, an impeachment has to have a crime and has to be bipartisan. This is not a genuine impeachment, it’s a media circus and the longer it goes on the more it helps Trump, it’s an election gift to him and a suicide mission for the Democrats. He actually knows that he is not in an impeachment process and the Democrats are playing right into his hands.

    He’s not “just a child”, he’s a powerful Alpha male that wins at everything he does and who trolls his opposition until they go insane. A “child” doesn’t wipe the floor with the Clinton Dynasty and dismantle the media giants at the same time. If you think he’s a child then you have fallen for his trolling. He is a born winner and a POTUS.

    the stakes are so high here, the establishment can not tolerate Trump staying in power so this next period will be nothing like any other time in US presidential history - his opposition will resort to sedition, treason and criminal and constitutional violation and the complete destruction of the last shreds of journalistic standards in the media to keep him out of office again, they are so panicked that they will try anything to bring him down. They cannot do it electorally and they know it so it remains to be seen how far they will go. A lot can happen in a year, I suspect though that President Trump has some powerful people covering his back.

    There's a power struggle within the American elite. I'm just wondering which side Bloomberg is on? It doesn't quite make sense for him to come out at this point?

    Read between the drama. There is only one side and we arent on it.
    When they start talking turn the volume down and then watch their actions. It will all make better sense and you'll see every word is a lie.
    You guys put too much stake into what they say and the fake drama they fill your minds with.
    What you guys call winning is the race to the bottom.
    When obama did what trump does the repubs piss in their panties.

    He's a clown, and it's hilarious that fan boys still back him after he has shown how full of shit he actually is.

    Part of me is really glad that the Dems have shot themselves in the foot, yet again, and that Trump will win in 2020 because there will be even more stupidity and drama.

    Tariffs on China are bad. Tariffs on China will not accomplish anything. Tariffs on China are bad for the US economy. Tariffs are.... hold on we'll get back with you in a moment.

    Chinese leaders may be a lot of things, but they are smart. They realize Trump will probably win the election. They have to know they did get the better of us in the past. So now they agree to a new deal.

    Not one shot fired and both sides will gain once everything gets settled. Part 2 soon to come (hopefully).

    PS I wish the US and China did have better "relations" generally speaking, also Russia. If the three had better relations and mutual financial interests/projects working together, all three would be "untouchable" so to speak from the rest of the world. Natural human greed for more power and $$$ though would probably prevent that on all sides.

    I heard his son on the radio the other day calling it the “impeachMINT” because it’s just a mint for Trump votes at this point.

    I was hoping gold and silver would go down after this was signed, why are they both going up instead?

    China. +4000 years of successful trade. V. Trump. +250 years of US trade plus its pathetic sanctions. The USA is a trainwreck ready to be flushed as the next shithole
