I never quite understood the logic in the Biden transition team telling America the other day that America First was dead. Why wouldn't America be first to the POTUS under all circumstances? I know Germans believe in Germany first. Russians believe in Russia first. Chinese believe in China first. What's the problem with taking care of your own first?

I know it doesn't fit into your priors but its fact. The Trump Administration and its unilateralism has been a big boon to the Chinese soft power strategy.

I listed 3 specific things in a thread asking us to be specific.

I understand you've been conditioned to respond in way like this. Its unfortunate and I feel bad for you that beyond random one liner smears you don't have much in the way of substance.

It would be easy for me to respond with all of the patents and products the Trump family makes in China but its not relevant to the discussion.

TTP and TTIP were specifically crafted to confront the Chinese Belt/Road agenda.

Just like your views on the China trade war, you're completely out of your element here. Those agreements were one sided in favor of China. Full stop. I know you're not well versed on trade and capitalism so maybe this is a good time to step back and learn before you post.

He will take office 2-3 weeks into the vaccine being distributed.

I say by Feb 15th he’s taking credit for the cure

Hey guys...it could be that we are quibbling over nothing. The odds are that Rudy will dazzle the Supreme Court with his "staggering evidence"...and Biden will never get the chance to do the "damage" that you all fear he might.

The trade war has been a failure.

This is one of those times you're arguing the sky isn't blue. The fact you continuously bring it up leads me to believe you're just trolling...

Nobody is stupid enough to believe it worked.

Quick Facts:
- Trade Deficit largest ever.
- Manufacturing in recession pre-Covid
- $90 billion in farm bailouts (3x the Obama Auto Bailouts)
- No Chinese concessions in writing to date.

the politicians have said it so much they are starting to believe it. many of their followers also feel that a worldwide economy is the best for them

Oh...Would BiteMe be another Hope and Change administration? Or would this be change without any hope for a free America? Would this be another administration of "new norms"?

That trade deficit with China... been around since Briben voted for them to enter the WTO. kinda ballooned under Obama/Briben.




But whats this in 2019 seems to have shrunk... We won't see that trend continue under Briben's MAPA plan.

Ummm....the graph you posted says it is through July of 2019. What’s it look like for the entire year?


So disingenuous....
