Democrats, the sewagestream media and even some Republicans are condemning President Donald Trump for his tough stand on trade with China.
They are saying that Trump is wrong and that he should back down and give China what they want, not carrying about the overall long-term effects of a trade war.
All of Trump’s opponents are busy forecasting the economic impact to America and the American people.
However, China has been taking advantage of America and our weak presidents of the past at the expense of American farmers and manufacturers.

Believe it or not, Trump is right and is doing the right thing.
“We are right where we want to be with China. Remember, they broke the deal with us & tried to renegotiate,” he tweeted on Sunday. “We will be taking in tens of billions of dollars in tariffs from China. Buyers of product can make it themselves in the USA (ideal), or buy it from non-tariffed countries.”
Today the president is being applauded across the political spectrum for his tough approach. But remember it wasn’t always like that.
During his administration, President Clinton said, “Everything I have learned about China as president and before — and everything I have learned about human nature in a half-century of living — convinces me that we have a far greater chance of having a positive influence on China’s actions if we welcome China to the world community instead of shutting it out.” …
For decades, presidents, Democrats and Republicans, have made trade deals that benefited other countries more than they benefited America.
They were more concerned about trying to buy friendships from other countries than they were about taking care of the American people.
Donald Trump is the first president in decades who actually cared more about the American people and American economy than winning foreign friends.
