CHINA/TRADE DEALS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “‘If they don’t get this Trade Deal with the U.S. done, China could have it first recession (or worse!) in years. There’s disinvestment in China right now. Also, the Fed is too tight (I agree).’ Steve Moore, Heritage Foundation”

CHINA/MEDIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The Fake News Media is doing everything they can to crash the economy because they think that will be bad for me and my re-election. The problem they have is that the economy is way too strong and we will soon be winning big on Trade, and everyone knows that, including China!”

CHINA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “I know President Xi of China very well. He is a great leader who very much has the respect of his people. He is also a good man in a ‘tough business.’ I have ZERO doubt that if President Xi wants to quickly and humanely solve the Hong Kong problem, he can do it. Personal meeting?”

CHINA/ECONOMY/TRADE WAR/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump is pushing his bitter trade war with China into an aggressive and unpredictable new phase, bewildering Wall Street and risking an even bigger slowdown heading into a 2020 election in which the economy was supposed to be the president’s strongest selling point. The Trump administration on Monday [8-5-19] evening drove the stand-off with the world’s second-largest economy to a new level, officially labeling China a currency manipulator for the first time in a quarter century, enraging Beijing and inviting further retaliation in a bare-knuckled fight that has already slammed U.S. farmers and helped drive American manufacturing close — or into — recession. Following a precipitous stock-market decline that started the week, investors on Tuesday [8-6-19] took a break after China intervened to keep its currency, the yuan, from plunging further.”

CHINA/ECONOMY/STEVE MNUCHIN/TREASURY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “China on Tuesday [8-6-19] strongly rejected the Trump administration’s determination that it’s manipulating its currency for an unfair trade advantage and accused the United States of protectionist behavior that is hurting the global economy…The Central Bank also accused the United States of ‘wayward unilateralism and protectionist behavior that seriously undermines international rules and will have a major impact on global economic finance.’ Late Monday [8-5-19], Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin took the rare step of formally declaring China a currency manipulator — a designation that no U.S. administration has made in regard to any country since 1994, when China was designated for the first and only other time. Mnuchin’s announcement came hours after President Donald Trump lashed out at Beijing for allowing its currency, officially known as the renminbi, to depreciate above 7 yuan-to-the-dollar for the first time in over a decade.”

CHINA/ECONOMY/TRADE WAR/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The trade war between Washington and Beijing took an unexpected turn this week as China let its currency drop sharply and the United States responded by officially designating the country a currency manipulator. The confrontation underscored the Trump administration’s focus on weakness in foreign currencies — and the corresponding strength of the dollar — as a drag on the American economy. Now, investors are gaming out the prospect that the United States could actively intervene in the financial markets, in a significant break from a decades-long commitment to free-floating currencies…But while the president might want a weaker dollar, engineering one is complicated. Here’s the context you need to understand the United States’ changing approach to the dollar. Why would the U.S. benefit from a weaker dollar? A weaker currency makes a country’s exports cheaper for buyers overseas, giving a country a competitive advantage.”

AGRICULTURE/CHINA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “As they have learned in the last two years, our great American Farmers know that China will not be able to hurt them in that their President has stood with them and done what no other president would do – And I’ll do it again next year if necessary!”

CHINA/ECONOMY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Massive amounts of money from China and other parts of the world is pouring into the United States for reasons of safety, investment, and interest rates!
