Donald Trump Threatens China with Trade War over North Korea

President Donald J. Trump is furious with China over their failed and broken promises to assist with the threat from North Korea.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I am very disappointed in China. Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet…</p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="">July 29, 2017</a></blockquote>

Chinese President Xi Jinping had earlier this year assured President Trump that it would crank up pressure on North Korea, and end all economic aid as well as trade with the rogue leadership under Kim Jong Un.

During the Group of 20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany; President Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping to talk about North Korea for the second time.

When Trump first took office he invited President Jinping to what's been called the “citrus summit” at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

“North Korea is a problem and something has to be done about it,” Trump said during the meeting, also referring to Pyongyang as “the problem and menace.”

Trump has clearly become increasingly frustrated with China’s role in negotiating an end to North Korea’s missile and nuclear programs, with a failure to produce any actual results.

Despite multiple international sanctions placed on Pyongyang, China still trades heavily with North Korea, breaking their promise to America to help silence the “Nork Madman” who constantly Threatens not only the entire world but repeatedly says he will strike the United States.

It was a main issue at the Florida meeting in April, in which Trump called Xi a “good man” and the two appeared to hit it off. After that meeting however Trump’s rhetoric toward China has ramped up, as statistics continue to show that China is still trading with the North Korean leadership.

North Korea continues to fire more missile tests, most recently an intercontinental ballistic missile that some experts say could reach California and other parts of the United States’ West Coast, all while spewing aggressive rhetoric.

Japan is currently undergoing almost daily emergency meetings as Kim Jong Un continues to fire missiles into the Sea of Japan, a direct threat to the nation's sovereignty as well as a violation of international law.

President Trump’s angry tone has returned, saying that China has outright lied to the United States, and that he's placed all options on the table again including a potential trade war with the sleeping dragon of Asia.

Reports have stated recently that President Trump and his top Administration officials recently discussed imposing tariffs on major exports of steel and other goods from China during a meeting at the White House.

The new tax on imported goods could be about 20%, mainly focusing on steel, but may be expanded to goods like paper, semiconductors, aluminum, and large household appliances.

While the intent is to penalize and clamp down pressure into China over North Korea, during the campaign Trump also said the tariffs against China would help balance a system against the currency manipulators.

President Trump had tried to appease China and remove the label of currency manipulation in return for pressuring their neighbors North Korea, but now it's clear that President Jinping has no intention of doing so.

The "America First" Wing of the White House, including Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Trade Adviser Peter Navarro, and Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller have all been long in support of such a battle with China, saying that China has cost millions of American jobs and for decades been given a free pass.

Trump Supporters are also majorly in favor of such a crackdown on China, with an estimated support of the idea from at least 85% of his diehard supporters.

Clearly nobody wants an all out war in the Pacific, whether that be a trade war with China, or an all out military war with North Korea, but at the same time the President of the United States of America Donald J. Trump is not going to sit and wait for Kim Jong Un to strike a sovereign nation, or even America.

<strong><span style="color:red;">President Trump has made it clear that if need be, a premeditated strike will be taken against the rogue nation, and if China doesn't start honoring its own promises he will declare a trade war against the economic enemy of the United States.</span></strong>

5840, you're an idiot, literally the only thing to come out of a war with China is global annihalation. That ship you're dreaming of passed decades ago.

As regards a trade war, yeah that's fucking brilliant, take a look at how much the U.S owes China, ANY attempt to threaten, sanction, embargo, etc China and they can call in the debt, if the U.S refuses absolutely ALL trust will be lost with the US and the dollar. It would mean the end, same if you actually paid it. You think the great depression was bad? You haven't got a clue, but you'd learn, 'really' fast. Something to consider, when he or Ivanka's getting something(trademarks), China are best buddies, the minute they don't do what he wants, traitors, etc, China's not his country and he can't try bossing them like he is. As regards N.K, Trump seems to think it's some simple thing, it's not, but then he'd have to think, something he's not good at.
