Graham says when it comes to a trade war US has more bullets than China


>>Martha: IT’S POSSIBLE WE MAY NOT SEE A SCENE LIKE THAT ANYTIME SOON, ALTHOUGH THE PRESIDENT HAS WORKED HARD TO WORK OUT TRADE IN AN AREA THAT COULD BE NEGOTIATED WITH CHINA TO PRESERVE THE GOOD PERSONAL RELATIONS HE HAD WITH THE PRESIDENCY. THESE TWEETS FROM OVER AN HOUR AGO TELLING A DIFFERENT STORY TONIGHT, STARTING OCTOBER 1, THE $250 BILLION FROM CHINA TAXED AT 25% ARE GOING TO 30% WITH GOODS AND PRODUCTS FROM CHINA THAT WERE TAXED IN SEPTEMBER 1 OR 10% WILL GO TO 50% — YOU GET THE IDEA. THAT WAS AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP ORDERED U.S. COMPANIES TO STOP DOING BUSINESS WITH CHINA EARLIER IN THE DAY. HE SAID FIND OTHER SUPPLY CHAINS, A DEMAND NOT LOST ON THE U.S. MARKET DOWN 600 POINTS IN A VERY ROUGH FRIDAY FOR THEM. THIS ALL IN THE BACKGROUND, YOU’VE GOT TENSIONS MOUNTING IN HONG KONG. THE AIRPORT IS, YOU KNOW, BRACING FOR MORE PROTESTS THERE. AND YOU HAVE A STORY THIS WEEK ABOUT THE ESTIMATES THAT CHINA’S MILITARY MIGHT EXCEED HOURS IN THE PACIFIC. ALL THESE THINGS ARE PRETTY TOUGH TO FIND A BALANCE OF TRUST ON A TRADE DEAL. JOINING ME NOW, CHAIRMAN OF THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM. GOOD TO SEE YOU AS ALWAYS. WHAT YOU MAKE ABOUT THE PRESIDENT’S TACTICS ON CHINA?>>I LIKE IT. THE GOAL IS TO GET CHINA TO STOP CHEATING THE UNITED STATES OUT OF MARKETSHARE, PLAYED BY THE RULES THAT EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD PLAYS BY. WE HAD A DEAL SEVERAL MONTHS AGO AND THEY BACKED OUT OF IT. WHEN IT COMES TO A TRADE WAR, WE GOT MORE BULLETS THAN THEY DO. THE PRESIDENT IS DETERMINED TO GET CHINA TO CHANGE THEIR BEHAVIOR AND I’M 100% WITH IT.>>Martha: OBVIOUSLY IF YOU’RE PLAYING THE GAME, IT’S A TOUGH PART. THIS IS WHERE YOU NEED TO DIG IN. EVERYONE HAS SAID FROM THE GET-GO THAT THIS IS, YOU KNOW, A FIGHT THAT SHOULD HAPPEN AT SOME POINT. IT’S HAPPENING NOW. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE MARKET TODAY, OBVIOUSLY SOME FLUCTUATIONS THAT ARE A LITTLE BIT QUEASY INDUCING FOR A LOT OF FOLKS OUT THERE. WHAT DO YOU SAY TO AMERICANS WHO SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT? THIS’LL HURT A LITTLE MORE THAN WE THOUGHT.>>DON’T TRUST WALL STREET TO TAKE CARE OF CHINA. IF THEY WERE A DEAL WITH CHINA EVEN THOUGH THERE WOULD BE A TERRIBLE DEAL, THE STOCK MARKET WOULD GO UP A THOUSAND POINTS. TEN YEARS FROM NOW WE WOULD REAP THE BENEFITS, REAP THE CONSEQUENCES OF THAT TERRIBLE DEAL. THE STOCK MARKET DOESN’T IMPRESS ME AT ALL WHEN IT COMES TO CHINA. WHAT IMPRESSES ME IS THE PRESIDENT’S DETERMINATION TO GET THEM TO CHANGE THEIR BEHAVIOR. THEY SELL US A LOT MORE THAN WE BUY FROM THEM. WE CAN PUT TARIFFS ON A LOT MORE PRODUCTS COMING OUT OF CHINA THEN THEY CAN PUT TARIFFS GOING FROM CHINA TO THE UNITED STATES. PAYING NOW ARE PAYING LATER WHEN IT COMES TO CHINA, MR. PRESIDENT, KEEP IT UP. YOU ARE THE ONLY GUY IN MY LIFETIME WHO HAS TAKEN ON CHINA AND YOU’VE GOT A GOOD HAND. PLAY IT OUT.>>Martha: DO YOU THINK THERE WILL BE A TRUST FACTOR HERE? HOW DO YOU MAKE A DEAL WITH SOMEBODY WHO HAS ALREADY PULLED BACK FROM EARLIER AGREEMENTS, AS YOU SAID. THEY PROMISED THING. I LOOK AT THE FENTYNOL ISSUE, THE PRESIDENT SAID HE WAS GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT THESE FENCE AND FENTYNOL SHIPMENTS ARE STOPPED. HOW DO YOU COME TO ANY AGREEMENT? THERE’S NO TRUST AT ALL.>>IT’S A MATTER OF VERIFYING. HOW DO WE TAKE THE TARIFFS OFF WHEN THEY CHANGE THEIR BEHAVIOR? YOU GOT TO HAVE METRICS, TRANSPARENCY. WE ARE NOT GOING TO RELIEVE TARIFFS, HOPING THEY WILL DO BETTER. WE WILL TIE THEIR BEHAVIOR TO WHAT WE DO. THERE ARE PLENTY OF WAYS THEY CAN CONSTRUCT A VERIFIABLE SYSTEM, GETTING THEM IN THE WTO AS A DEVELOPED NATION IS A WHOLE NEW SET OF RULES COMPARED OF WHAT THEY LIVE IN THE DAY. I THINK WE CAN DO THIS AND HERE’S WHAT I TELL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. IF DONALD TRUMP DOESN’T DO IT, WHO ELSE WILL? IF YOU DON’T DO IT, YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE THE WORLD TO CHINA.>>Martha: THEY UNDERSTAND THE THINGS THAT MARKETS ARE NOT HAPPY ABOUT ARE THE COMMENTS FROM THE FED CHAIRMAN POWELL. THE PRESIDENT SAID WHO’S OUR BITTER ENEMY, JAY POWELL OR CHAIRMAN XI?>>TRUMP IS A STREET FIGHTER. WE HAVE AN INDEPENDENT FEDERAL RESERVE SO WE DO NOT PLAY POLITICS WITH INTEREST RATES. THERE IS NO GETTING AROUND THIS PAIR THE WORLD ECONOMY IS GOING TO BE EFFECTIVE AS WE GET IN A FIGHT WITH CHINA. THEY ARE GOING TO HURT MORE THAN WE WILL AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO DEPEND ON CHINA ARE GOING TO FEEL THE PAIN. IT’S GOING TO AFFECT WALMART AND OTHER PLACES. PAYING NOW, ARE YOU GOING TO PAY LATER? ONE THING I CAN SAY, VERY IMPORTANT. THE LONGER THIS GOES, THE MORE PEOPLE BEGIN TO MOVE OUT OF CHINA AND CREATE SUPPLY CHAINS OUTSIDE OF CHINA SO THE TARIFFS MAKE IT MORE COST-EFFECTIVE FOR YOU TO DO BUSINESS OUTSIDE OF CHINA.>>Martha: THEY ARE ALREADY MOVING THE SUPPLY CHAINS OUT FROM ALL OF THIS. I WANT TO ASK YOU A QUICK QUESTION FROM AFGHANISTAN PRODUCING A DEAL COMING TOGETHER WITH THE TALIBAN AND AFGHAN GOVERNMENT IN TERMS OF OUR ROLE IN IT? THIS IS SOMETHING YOU ARE VERY TREPIDATION IS.>>I HOPE WE CAN GET A DEAL WHERE THE TELE- BAN ACT LIKE CIVILIZED PEOPLE WHERE WE GET BACK TO WHERE THE TALIBAN DON’T KILL WOMEN FOR SUPPORT. 80% REJECT TALIBAN RULE BUT CAN END THAT PART, I DO NOT TRUST THE TALIBAN TO TAKE CARE OF AMERICAN INTEREST AT HOME OR ABROAD. THE TALIBAN CANNOT BE TRUSTED TO EVEN IF THEY WANTED TO PLAY BY THE RULES, THEY DON’T HAVE DRONES, THEY DO NOT HAVE AN INTELLIGENCE APPARATUS LIKE WE DO. THEY WOULD BE VERY DANGEROUS FOR US TO GIVE UP THE COUNTERTERRORISM PLATFORM AND CAPABILITIES. WE HAVE AFGHANISTAN TO MONITOR AL QAEDA AND ISIS. THEY WILL NOT DO A PEACE DEAL, SO WHEN IT COMES TO TRUSTING THE TELE- BAN TO TAKE CARE OF AMERICA, THE ONLY PEOPLE I TRUSTED TAKE CARE OF AMERICA IS AMERICAN SOLDIERS AND AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITIES.

    On China's best day before the tariffs, their economy was still half the size of ours. Today it's smaller (and weaker) still.
    Between the CCPs apoplexy over Hong Kong and a singular inability to negotiate economics in good faith, with the United States, the CCP may be taking its last gasps as a failed communist regime.
    Let's just hope they don't strike out militarily.

    Problem is that Graham is a lying bastard and that America doesn't have the most important bullet of all — the bullet called DIVESTMENT.

    That one bullet destroys all other bullets and is the nation killer. The nation that has that bullet in their trade war arsenal is CHINA!

    China is a communist dictatorship and a rogue country which should’ve never been accepted into the WTO. If we keep on losing half a trillion a year to them, they’ll end up enslaving us in a decade. The USSR was never on track to surpass us economically but China is on all and every level.

    China is already in decline because of their stupid girl policy. People kept the boys and got rid of the girls and now there's no wives. In some places in China they're actually stealing wives. If half the people can't have children that cuts the population in half.

    Bullets to change someones behaviour ? Has it ever worked ?
    More bullets than China ? Yes I guess so, but does it matter. US had more bullets than Vietnam, more bullets than
    Afghanistan, more bullets than Iran and Irak. There is a reason why Obama made the TPP deal in order to deal with
    China. When you think the whole world needs to change its behaviour……take a look in the mirror.

    The story isn't TRADE…. it is 5-G. If we get China to agree to give/sell us 5-G as soon as anyone else, then the trade war is over. This is what it is all about. The fact that China always plays unfair in trade is a "forever" policy. They did it with all their suzerain states 2000 years ago; they did it to Britain with tea priced (which, by the way, was the real cause of the tea tax that led to the Boston Tea Party) and Britain used opium to counteract it until finally they used "gunboat" diplomacy" to force China to stop their nastiness. Trump is using "economic gun boat diplomacy" on China to accomplish the same. And you should never send in a gunboat unless you are actually willing to use it… and Trump is VERY willing to use it. This country is the only country with a positive bond ratio. We are in a unique position to play this game. It may pinch, but we can hold out longer than anyone else can. Go DJT– make America even greater.

    Apparently they're looking at implementing a floating tariff pegged to the Yuan, so no matter how their currency is manipulated, the tariff auto adjusts, based on an economic formula so they gain absolutely nothing by currency manipulation. It's a no win for them. As a result. US is in a stronger position than ever.
