Trump to Turn EU, Japan Into China’s Trade War Allies

Beijing was concerned EU and Japan would join the US offensive but Trump's multi-front war is poised to make them allies instead

In the trade war between the US and China, China has been making great efforts to form a united front with EU and Japan. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s recent visits to Italy and France were very successful. At the same time, he will have a summit meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, which Abe hopes to be very successful,

So does Xi, in order to include Japan in the united front he has formed with EU through the above-mentioned visits.

In its report “Abe looking to accelerate improvements in Japan-China ties after Xi attends G20 summit” on May 17, Japan Times quotes Abe as saying to China’s top diplomat Yang Jiechi: “With President Xi’s visit, I want to further develop bilateral ties that have returned to a normal track and jointly create a new era for Japan and China,”

Yang responded by saying he sees “new momentum” for bilateral relations.

Xi is afraid that EU and Japan as US allies may join US trade war to attack China; therefore, he is anxious to make both EU and Japan neutral in the trade war between the US and China. He is happy on his success in EU and will make great efforts to make Japan neutral too when he holds a summit with Abe in late June.

However, the situation has turned out even better for him. Reuters says in its report “Trump declares some auto imports pose national security threat” on Friday May 17, “U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday declared that some imported vehicles and parts pose a national security threat but delayed a decision for as long as six months on whether to impose tariffs to allow for more time for trade talks with the European Union and Japan.”

Trump will extend his trade war with China to US allies EU and Japan. He will thus turn US allies into China’s allies in his trade war.

Trump needs a deal with China, China does not need any trade deals, Xi can tell Trump to get lost.
Imposed tariffs are going to increase the inflation rate and the Fed has to raise interest rates even more possibly sending then US economy info a recession.

Gee, where does he get those expressions from?

A man who frequently takes on the kind of expression we see in the photo with Ms Merkel has something seriously wrong.

The expression is of a weakling acting tough; cowards like Trump are dangerous when endorsed with authority and power. One can compare Trump to a juvenile who gets pleasure tormenting insects by pulling off their legs and wings because he can and they can’t fight back. US citizens did a great job electing a POTUS who represents them.

Trumps only purpose in the whitehouse is to enrich the military industrial complex & Israel.

Trumps trade war is ratcheting up need through scarcity in order to expand the military industrial complex. Manufactured systemic conditions of poverty, hunger, and lack of jobs/opportunity have historically been used to entice people into the armed forces to fight the wars of the monied establishment in exchange for a roof over their heads and three squares a day. We see a repeat of these conditions currently under a New Great Depression.

He is doing it precisely to starve the American people into war.

China, Russia, Iran, and Venezuela would fair best creating a joint comprehensive plan to educate, feed, and cloth poor Americans. Seriously
