US trade deficit with China continues to increase

Recommended Posts

Despite U.S. President Donald Trump launching a high-stakes trade war against Beijing last year, China on Monday announced that its 2018 trade surplus with Washington was its largest in more than a decade.

 

China's surplus with the U.S. grew 17 percent from a year ago to hit $323.32 billion in 2018, according to government data. It was the highest on record dating back to 2006, according to Reuters. The deficit that the U.S. has with China is likely even bigger than these figures indicate since China calculates the numbers using different methods, sometimes excluding goods that end up in the U.S. via other countries.

Lol Xi is just running out the clock on this moron.

 

I have a feeling all those extra tariff increases won't be coming on March 2. 

 

Art of the deal

Want to know what happens in March and April? Soybean harvesting in South America which will give China additional leverage.

Take a longer view. Trump is doing his best to fulfill his most ambitious campaign promise...

 

To 'Make America Great Again' he obviously has to turn it into a shitshow first.

We just have to endure a little short term pain so that we can ensure real, lasting, long-term pain

Lol, right on cue. His Orangness never fails to live up to his shitty dealmaking ways. How does Xi keep from laughing in his face at this point?
