    China Promises To Fight Back In Escalating Trade War

    Source: NYPost

    China is promising to fight back hard against President Trump’s tariffs — and is vowing that the US will not win the escalating trade war between the world’s two largest economies.

    “China is confident that it will follow its own path and do its own things well, and will never waver in its stand on countering any provocations by the U.S. side,” the ruling Communist Party’s People’s Daily said in a commentary on Sunday.

    The United States will not win the trade war because of the hardship higher tariffs will impose on its farmers and businesses, the paper said.

    Beijing’s latest saber-rattling follows Trump’s “order” that US companies find “alternative to China” for doing business, and his announcement Washington will levy additional tariffs on $550 billion in Chinese goods.

    China, in turn, has promised to impose new tariffs on $75 billion in US goods.

    Trump is at the G-7 Summit in France, where Britain’s new Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, says he’ll ask the president to ease up on the trade war before it causes a global recession.

    “Clearly the state of global trade, I’m very worried about the way it’s going. The growth of protectionism, of tariffs, that we’re seeing,” Johnson said, according to CNN.

    “There are all sorts of people, who will take any excuse at all to interfere with free trade and to frustrate trade deals, and I don’t want to see that.”

    Questioned if he would ask Trump directly not to escalate the trade war, Johnson told reporters, “You bet.”

    Bringing American jobs back to America to alleviate the depressing plight of American workers should be a government priority. If we all have to pay higher prices for commodities until the economy picks-up, then so-be-it.

    The MSM interpretation of related events:

    "After a confusing day of mixed signals on trade and Iran, US President Donald Trump began his final round of talks at the Group of 7 summit on Monday eager to put a positive spin on his agenda.

    He said he'd received word from China that its negotiators are ready to return to trade talks, even after his aides spent Sunday insisting Trump wants higher tariffs on Chinese products. And he shrugged off a surprise visit a day earlier from Iran's foreign minister, saying he knew it was happening and didn't interpret it as a sign of disrespect.
    'It's been really good. It's not quite over yet, but I will tell you we have had great unity,' he said before a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
    But even in that session, differences were apparent. Merkel said there is 'a long way to go' before a solution for Iran is reached. And she said she'd be 'very glad' if the US and China can end their bitter trade war.
    Trump seemed to suggest there was a better chance of that happening after a set of phone calls overnight. He also appeared to allude to comments from China's vice premier, who said China would 'adopt a calm attitude' in trade negotiations."

    Conduct above and beyond the call of duty:

    "There have been some friendly moments. Trump greeted Merkel with a French-style double kiss on the cheek when they encountered each other during afamily photo on Sunday. And Trump eagerly announced an 'agreement in principle' on trade with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, though final details were still being put down on paper."

    (I sincerely hope President Trump received a full series of vaccinations before engaging in such a disgusting display with Madame Merkel. )
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.
