Trump floats ‘decoupling’ from Chinese economy

President Trump made a shocking announcement on Sunday, revealing that he is considering stepping up his pressure on China by “decoupling” the US’s economy from the communist nation’s. 

Trump, who once touted his good relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping, has come out with guns blazing against China after the Asian powerhouse remorselessly mishandled the coronavirus crisis and continues to abuse the human rights of its own citizens.

Trump told Fox News in an interview airing on Sunday that ” “we don’t have to” do business with the manufacturing giant, though the US economy is deeply intertwined with China’s.

Trump has been escalating pressure on China for months, even dismissing long-held plans for a second major trade deal with China. Trump explained, that “decoupling” the two nation’s economies is “something that if they don’t treat us right I would certainly, I would certainly do that.”

This isn’t the first time that Trump has brought up severing ties with one of the world’s most powerful economies. Trump brought up the concept of “decoupling” in June, tweeting at the time “the U.S. certainly does maintain a policy option, under various conditions, of a complete decoupling from China.”

Trump’s comment came in response to U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer’s June testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee that he didn’t believe that severing the relationship is a viable policy option. 

Decoupling from the Chinese economy would force a major supply chain and economic realignment, which could be costly in the short term. However, China’s blatant misconduct in recent months appears to have forced the conversation.

Get rid of the sneaky Communist country. They steal all our secrets and technology. They put spy apps in our smart phones. I do not think they ever invented anything since the Great Wall of China, thousands of years ago, was erected by slaves. China interferes in all nations’s affairs, recently in Ecuador around Ecuador’s fishing islands. China made the China Sea its own taking away freedom of the seas and oceans. If countries stop trading with them, China will fall and get out of every country’s way. They invented this bat virus, the third virus they have invented. They are vicious, deceitful, arrogant, and will steal everyone’s technology. Purposefully, they sent airplanes with people who had the virus around to all the countries to deceitfully spread the virus around the world. Defeat them by no trade. Eventually, maybe the Chinese people will rise up and overthrow this Communist government and XI. It is time for the Chinese to start a revolution and overthrow this rotten Communist regime. The US did it in 1776 and finally US was victorious. Stand up to the vicious Communist dictators that keep their population from freedom.

I think the President is correct. We should sever ties with China. That will create great opportunity to create the much needed factories for thousands of new jobs for Americans. I think it will improve the economy therefore improve the quality of life-for Americans. Its time for he majority of products to say:
“Made in America”. 🇺🇸👍🏻

Think about it, what better way to take over the world, which is what china has always wanted to do! grandma in florida

Back in 1978 when bringing china more into the modern world was a step to try and normalize relations and give china a bigger chance to experience capitalism and maybe change their ways towards human rights. The past 4 years have shown the result of this attempt. Time to say Goodbye

Everyone except for the Demcommies and the Rhinocommies. They are making to much money from China. end all lobbing. Make it a crime. Put it in the constitution. Anybody taking anything from a lobbyist gets 20 years no exceptions, no reduced sentence. Or choice of 10 days of torcher in front of the other politicians. Those can’t attend must watch a video of the event.

Breaking ties with the Chinese economy is certainly a difficult, painful, but absolutely necessary decision for Trump. China has become the most powerful nation thanks to America. China has flooded America and the rest of the world with its gigantic, cheap. but bad production. Enough ! It’s time to return our production to America and stop dependence on cunning, deceitful and thieving Chinese officials.

Our country has allowed China too circumvent everything that America stands for, Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. One nation under God, indivisible and I am of the belief that if we severe all ties with China, that we can come back as the most powerful nation in the world. Don’t allow the left liberals from stopping the United States from not only Making America Great Again, but also Keeping America Great. Everything that we need is right here in America and this minor set back with the Pandemic, will only help us to initialize the come back that the true Patriots of America have been expecting for a long time. Just think of it, a second industrial revolution where all the closed factories that were once abandoned, can now be reactivated and everything that is made here in America would not have to be Made In China, Made in Vietnam, Made in Honduras, Made in the Philippines, Made in Morocco, and so on and so on. We would take pride in making sure that everything that we produce has one thing in common, “MADE IN AMERICA.” Everyone person that believes that we hold these truths self evident, that all men are created equal, need to step up and support this President and have him do what’s best for our country, and by leaving China in the wake, will Make America Great Again. God Bless you and God Bless The United States of America.

Yes, get rid of China. The other day I decided to purchase some mask to keep in my car, just in case my well made ones got too wet or dirty. Well, for $4.50 I did purchase a package of 10 and guess where they came from, China. I laughed when I saw that, because they gave us Covid 19, now we have to purchase their product to not get it. Doesn’t make much sense to me. Maybe others, not me. Something is terribly wrong with this picture.

All the above posts are right on target! We do not need China! We can manufacture all we need here in the U.S., and we should curtail them sending their students to our universities here. They have their own, but those students come here, get their degrees, and go back home to help their country progress. They take spaces and jobs that our students and workers need. We have given up too much to them already, and they have used it against us! Most of the viruses that have come here have been created in China labs. It is time to cut ALL ties with China, and until they change their ways, no students or travelers should be allowed entrance to our country! And— they must be held accountable for the corona virus, their lies and cover-ups, and sending people all over the world to spread the virus globally! Cut all ties!

Yep, Made In the USA again sounds great.
Jobs here for us, by limiting Corporate America to the United States of America.
Chief Executives or Major Stock Holders in Corporations who don’t really “own” the Corporations need limited budgets so as to prevent Personnel losses and/or unemployed Americans. Americans hell bent on dealing with “any” country through improper or Illegal imigration for the purpose of under wage (slave) pay should just move out “CONUS”. Otherwise pay retribution to both sets of workers.
