Laugh a day, threat a day resulting from the loud mouth simpleton's IGNORANCE on policy, politics and 'CHOICES'. Do I think that CHINA is going to back down when they realize that Trump or his minion is threatening them? Hell NO! WE have how many American companies making shit there? We buy a whole lot of shit from there and our INFLATION RATE would go through the ceiling if they chose to RAISE their prices OR we had to buy our shit from countries at higher prices. And what if WE just stop buying shit? OUR economy would TANK! Yepper, CHINA is now inextricably linked to us, like it or not!
Talk about the LAW OF UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES!
Oh yeah, and how much of our debt do they owe?? Couple trillion?? Just as a hypothetical--what if they 'called in the note'? Of course DON the CON says he knows how to leverage debt to his advantage. He can take that one personally! Sure, I have total faith.

"That individuals such as Navarro who have a bias against China are being picked to work in leading positions in the next administration is no laughing matter," the official English-language China Daily said in an editorial.
"The new administration should bear in mind that with economic and trade ties between the world's two largest economies now the closest they have ever been, any move to damage the win-win relationship will only result in a loss for both sides."
