Trade War - how is that working out?

Recommended Posts

Yea, we need to ban Tux for having all these Trump winning posts.  It is making the libtards nervous.  Japan opening their markets to American beef is huge but a libtard, on a vegan diet (because of the green house gas issue) wouldn't understand and be pissed.  Quite honestly libtards wouldn't know winning if it rammed it's way up their ass.  I bet Oman, Legal, DumbMax and the rest of them couldn't muster 100 IQ between them.

That's just horrible news!  How will ever survive as a nation and around the world if we keep allowing all that cattle poop everywhere.  Why cant everyone just listen to the bright one AOC.

In this case I just think he's doing the tariffs for Putin's benefit so he has to just say some crazy shit that everyone knows isn't true

MOSCOW (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that Russia would supply soy beans and poultry meat to China and that the United States had effectively given up on that market.

 

Putin was speaking at the Russia Calling annual investment forum.

Where was Russia selling that stuff before?  The market isn't shrinking.  We can just sell to someone else.  Russia deserves the Chinese.  Let them have them.

Wow, is it really that easy?  Why hasn't anyone else thought of that?

 

Stoop.

Seems like you or Trump need to tell the US farmers they can sell to someone else. Obviously, they haven’t receive this bolt of enlightenment.

Wait, the billions in subsidies to our Patriot Farmers aren't warranted?

 

In seriousness, Trump's approach has been somewhat draconian, but may prove effective.  What I am concerned about now is that he might be overplaying his hand by continuously and very publicly shaming China's position.  iow, he's not leaving room for Pi to save face from this deal.  Now this may become a test of wills where Pi has already positioned himself as a strongman and is probably situated better to play the long game than the highly levreaged USA farmer and the instant gratification cheap goods US consumer.

Should be fairly simple to replace all of the sales that were lost to a country of over a billion who eat more soybeans per capita than almost anyone. 

Do some simple math and look at Russia produces and what China needs.  Figure it out.  Russia has their own population to feed you know.
