    'The Fool Builds Walls': China Takes Aim At Trump Trade War Threats GTSA

    From The Guardian

    Lily Kuo in Hong Kong for The Guardian wrote:

    Chinese state media has attacked the White House for escalating the prospect of a trade war, calling the administration of president Donald Trump “selfish” and “rude” and “mundane” in its capriciousness.

    “The unpredictability of [the] Trump administration has become mundane, or even boring for China,” an editorial in the state-run tabloid Global Times said on Sunday.

    “It reinforces the difference in images of the two countries: one challenges the foundation of global trade through sudden attacks; and one that is prepared to defend itself in a trade war that it cannot avoid.”

    After months of negotiations, China and the US are on the brink of an all-out trade war. On Friday, the US unveiled a list of $50 Billion in Chinese goods to target with 25% tariffs, pledging more duties if China retaliated. Within hours China released its own list of retaliatory tariffs to place on $50 Billion in US imports.

    An editorial in the People’s Daily on Saturday said the latest trade provocations allowed China “to see more clearly the face of the Trump administration, one that is rude, unreasonable, selfish and headstrong”. China’s official Xinhua news agency added: “The wise man builds bridges, the fool builds walls. With economic globalization there are no secluded and isolated islands.”

    China’s proposed tariffs on more than 500 categories of US goods, a list more extensive than the one it released in April, appear aimed at hurting Trump’s Republican base before the US midterm elections in November. The list includes beef, poultry, pork, dairy products, seafood, tobacco and soybeans. China is the largest buyer of US soybeans. Beijing said it would also target $16 Billion of US products like coal, crude oil, natural gas, and medical equipment at a later date.

    The situation could still escalate. US trade representative Robert Lighthizer has said the White House will release a plan by the end of the month on restricting Chinese investment in the US and limiting Chinese purchases of advanced technology from the country.

    Trump has said he would triple the value of Chinese imports subjected to tariffs to $150 Billion.

    Other levers Beijing has already begun to employ include extra inspections on current US imports into China.

    “The economic damage of the tariffs announced so far won’t be too big in the scheme of things. But that could quickly change,” said Roland Rajah, the director of the international economy programme at the Lowy Institute in Sydney.

    Chinese state media still left room for the possibility of negotiations. “Given the frequent flip-flopping of the Donald Trump administration, it is still too early to conclude that a trade war will start,” said an English-language editorial in the China Daily.

    Well... are we winning the trade war yet?  It's supposed to be so easy to win, Mr. "President".  Looks like we have more problems winning that war than we have winning the war on drugs.  But according to the guy in the White House, these things are easy to win.  Well, with the information, we're getting, we have to ask that question.  Are we winning yet?

    Just saying.

    Yeah, I rather suspect his definition of 'winning' clashes mightily with my own. So, I certainly hope he gets bored of 'winning' sooner rather than later!
