All China had to do was look at Japan and the USA to see what happens to economies when you send your manufacturing jobs out of the country. The economy only grows at the top and the middle class becomes low wage fast food workers.

The deal I just made with China is, by far, the greatest and biggest deal ever made for our Great Patriot Farmers in the history of our Country. In fact, there is a question as to whether or not this much product can be produced? Our farmers will figure it out. Thank you China!

  Thank you to all Republicans in Congress for your invaluable help!

Quote
"People familiar with the tentative deal expect large purchases of U.S. agriculture goods by Beijing."

Meanwhile, the US merely holds off on the implementation of "tariffs next Tuesday on about $250 billion of Chinese imports to 30% from 25%."

This is a win.

Hong Kong Protests Expand

Hong Kong medics join anti-government protests to 'resist tyranny' as movement enters 21st weekend. (medical workers)

HONG KONG – Hundreds of Hong Kong medical workers and other anti-government protesters rallied in the Chinese-ruled city’s financial center on Saturday, angry at perceived police brutality during more than four months of sometimes violent unrest.

Pro-democracy activists have attacked police with petrol bombs and rocks and shone lasers in their eyes. One officer was slashed in the neck with a knife.

Police have responded with tear gas, water cannons, rubber bullets and occasional live rounds, wounding several protesters, many of whom received treatment from volunteer first responders at the roadside.

A 26-year-old nurse, who gave his name only as Stephen, said police would often come into the hospital where he works on the Kowloon peninsula and stand outside the wards or search for protesters in the accident and emergency department.

“Sometimes they bring their guns and weapons. The patients may be scared. This is not good practice,” he said. “The protesters have injuries. This searching must be done after they are healed.”

He said he worked as a first responder at protest sites in his spare time.

“I didn’t tell any of my supervisors — only some colleagues with the same values,” he said. “But when I see people injured, I have to provide first aid.”

Police deny accusations of brutality, saying they have shown utmost restraint in life-threatening situations and issue warnings to protesters with color-coded signs before they respond with tear gas or baton charges.

Protesters are angry about what they see as creeping Chinese interference in Hong Kong, a former British colony that returned to Chinese rule in 1997 under a “one country, two systems” formula intended to guarantee freedoms that are not enjoyed on the mainland.

China denies meddling. It has accused foreign governments, including the United States and Britain, of inciting the unrest.

The demonstrators gathered peacefully for Saturday’s “resisting tyranny” protest, occasionally chanting “Hong Kong people, resist.”

This weekend demonstrations are planned in the city’s financial district on Hong Kong Island and another on Sunday on the Kowloon side of the harbor.

Pro-democracy activists were preparing to demonstrate for the 21st straight weekend as unrest spreads around the globe, from South America to Europe to the Middle East.

Protesters in Hong Kong will look to keep up momentum in the monthslong fight with officials in Beijing for greater democracy. Earlier this week, reports surfaced this week that China’s leaders were mulling a plan to replace Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam by early next year in a bid to calm public anger.

All efforts so far by Hong Kong’s authorities to quell the protests have largely failed, from banning marches and withdrawing the proposed extradition bill to using an emergency law to outlaw face masks and pledging to make housing more affordable.

The protests have been cited as inspiration for demonstrators around the world who have flooded the streets of major cities this month over economic inequality, regional grievances and alleged corruption.

Trouble in China
« Reply #238 on: October 28, 2019, 05:03:44 PM »
As well as trouble for Xi.

The four-day conclave comes at a critical time, as Hong Kong grapples with anti-government protests for the fourth month, drawing Western criticism of Beijing for trampling on the rights and liberties of Hong Kong people in its handling of the violent demonstrations.

China’s economy is also growing at its slowest pace in nearly three decades, hurt in part by a prolonged trade war with the United States. Stable growth has been fundamental to the party’s political legitimacy.

It is key for Beijing to use the occasion to cast the Chinese political system as meritocratic, unchallengeable and superior to Western democracy, said Wang Jiangyu, director of the Asian Law Institute at the National University of Singapore.

Party leaders have repeatedly warned that without Communist rule, China would descend into chaos and fall prey to hostile Western powers. In September, Xi said China was entering a period of “concentrated risks” — economic, political and diplomatic — and the country must be ready to fight.

“China’s party-state wants to show that its political system is more attractive overseas, and others should stop their finger-pointing,” Wang said.

One thing I've noticed as of late in the fake financial propaganda is some of the punditry are coalescing around the stance against China, like the more they learn and hear from the people, the more they don't want to be on the wrong side of this....  I even heard Cavuto speaking positively of Trump holding firm; I about spit up my coffee when I heard it...
