The President just fired off a series of tweets reporting on the success of tariffs. The Chinese economy has been having some problems since Trump started rolling them out.

The Chinese are probably thinking that they can launch a public relations blitz to try and get Trump to reverse direction. It’s not going to work. Trump has been talking about the problem with trade for decades and he knows that this is the only way to fix it.

China should start negotiating in good faith instead of playing these games. Anybody with basic common sense can see what a lopsided deal this has been for the past couple of decades. And besides, the Chinese need access to our market more than we need access to their market. But hell, they’ve barely given us access to their market so it really doesn’t matter what they do on their side. We have all the cards.
