Donald Trump stared down China’s President Xi Jinping – and China blinked.
This week President Xi made several concessions regarding the trade imbalance it has long enjoyed with the United States while making strong hints that more concessions are soon to follow. This pro-America victory is in stark contrast to the bowing and pleading posture that took place during the previous four administrations of Obama, Bush, Clinton, and Bush Sr.
The Establishment Media is largely ignoring the America-First victory. That means it’s up to all of you to get the message out there.
“…Mr. Xi highlighted areas where China was willing to give, including pledging to ease restrictions on imported cars by the end of the year as well as repeating open-ended promises to give foreigners greater access to the country’s financial markets – promises officials have made in the past.
He also pledged to strengthen intellectual property rights, addressing one of Mr. Trump’s main complaints.
“…Chinese officials have said they want to avoid a trade war and negotiate.
On Tuesday, Mr. Xi appeared to have given Mr. Trump a concession by pledging to “significantly” lower tariffs on imported automobiles by the end of the year.
Just hours before, Mr. Trump had taken to Twitter to complain about China’s 25 percent tax on imported automobiles.”
While it is true Mr. Xi has made head-fake trade promises in the past there is an urgency and quick-to-comply tone that has been missing before. That change in tone is due to one thing – the aggressively pro-American stance of President Donald Trump who appears more than willing take on short-term political pain for longer term economic gain that will directly benefit the American Working Class.
It has been a very long time since a U.S. President has been willing to fight so hard for the people who got them elected.
Trump is the exception and the Chinese appear to realize that.
