Failure awaits Trump in 2020 if he cannot device China's strategy.

 

 

Donald Trump “badly needs” to score a win with his “bold” China strategy so he can head into the 2020 election at his strongest. President Trump tackled two “bold initiatives” — trade with China and denuclearizing North Korea — and that if, “either or both pan out, that will very much strengthen his hand going into 2020.”
“If neither does, that obviously will have the opposite effect, and make it much more likely, I think, that a Democrat will come in.”

Hume continued: “The President carries the burden of being personally unpopular will the majority of the American people, many of whom may approve of his results, particularly on the economy so far, but do not approve of him personally,” “That’s a burden he’s carried since he got elected…Indeed, before he got elected. So, he carries that initial burden and therefore badly needs success on these initiatives of his.”

The comments came after the president fired a series of tweets at the Chinese over the weekend, after talks between the two nations last week. US stocks tumbled over 600 points as trade tensions continue to rise between the two power players. China also slapped $60 billion dollar retaliatory tariffs on American goods set to begin on June 1st. All of this sending averages to lows not seen since March.

In addition to raising tariffs on Friday, President Trump is now threatening to impose a 25 percent tariff on the rest of the goods China exports to the United States. His advisers said that is approximately $300 billion of Chinese products. as trade tensions continue to rise between the two power players.
