    OK. The war is on, whether or not we like it. What can Trump do? My only thought is to increase tariffs to counteract the devaluation of the yuan.

    Time for this war. We been getting scxx for a long time. Make them 100% I don't care on every single thing they want to import. Even if they ship it to Germany and then they sell it here. Same part same products .

    Let them slit their own throats. Maybe a 100% no China made crap allowed in, screw the tariffs.

    We are still a long way from a full-blown trade war with China. This is just a non-traditional way of both sides communicating their dissatisfaction with the lack of communication in the formal trade talks.

    I took a beating on my stock portfolio last week and today, but I know as soon as this trade deficit gets in check it will be ok

    The talking heads on AM Radio say the Chicoms are fixing to invade Hong Kong. That should get things heated up.

    Neither side will win a trade war and eventually, after some jousting, both sides will come to the table. I would be more worried about it going hot over the North China Sea or Hong Kong then a trade war.

    The Hong-Kong dustup is a big nothing burger. The Brits gave the city back to China so the international community will do nothing even if China sends in troops. Now Taiwan is a different story. If China decides to invade this island, I think there will be a big stink with hard push back against the chicoms.

    It would be hard to implement my trade strategy, . . . but my answer would be to make the tariff so the China price would be equal to 10% higher than the same product produced in the USA.

    May God bless,
