President Trump is absolutely right. The Chinese (who are not fools) want a Democrat to win in 2020, because they know a sucker when they see one. China’s leaders see a field of Democrat presidential candidates that are appallingly terrible. The worst group of presidential candidates produced by a major American political party in a long time.
Blue collar American workers watched in horror as the treasonous Obama administration allowed China to decimate America’s manufacturing sector in states such as Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and many other states.
However, in President Trump America finally has a President who is capable of going on offence against China, ensuring that American interests are protected.
The feeble, inept, and economically illiterate Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders would be no match for China’s cunning and ruthless negotiators. If Trump loses to any of the Democrat Party clowns in 2020, the American worker will be a massive price.
Trump says China is stalling because it wants to negotiate trade with Biden or ‘weak Democrats’, Sean Higgins, The Washington Examiner, May 10, 2019:
President Trump said Wednesday that the reason behind China’s attempt to walk back commitments it previously made in trade talks with the U.S. is that Beijing wants to stall things until Democrats are in office because they would be pushovers.
“The reason for the China pullback & attempted renegotiation of the Trade Deal is the sincere HOPE that they will be able to “negotiate” with Joe Biden or one of the very weak Democrats, and thereby continue to ripoff the United States (($500 Billion a year)) for years to come,” Trump tweeted Wednesday.

The president followed that with: “Guess what, that’s not going to happen! China has just informed us that they (Vice-Premier) are now coming to the U.S. to make a deal. We’ll see, but I am very happy with over $100 Billion a year in Tariffs filling U.S. coffers…great for U.S., not good for China!”
Trump was referring to China’s attempt over the weekend to back away from trade commitments it had previously made with the U.S. following months of negotiations. Beijing sent an extensively rewritten version of the existing deal to the U.S. on Friday, prompting the president to threaten on Sunday to starkly escalate tariffs on China if it did not revert to the prior deal.
On Wednesday, the Office of the United States Trade Representative published an official notice that it would hike the existing tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese goods to 25% across the board, up from 10% in most cases, and slap 25% tariffs on an additional $325 billion worth of goods. The tariffs would be effective midnight Thursday, the same day Chinese Vice Premier Liu He is set to arrive in the U.S. to continue talks.
