China Vows To Retaliate After Fresh Tariffs: Here Is What It Could Do

Now that President Trump has boxed Jerome Powell into a corner by declaring his intention to slap tariffs on the other ~$300 billion in Chinese goods that haven't already been impacted come the first of September, it's worth considering: How will Beijing respond to all of this?

So far, Chinese media has been quiet on the subject, even as domestic markets tumble and the yuan slides. That's possibly because China's senior lawmakers have departed to the seaside resort of Beidaihe for their annual two-week policy conclave. Typically, officials from President Xi on down disappear from public view as they debate policy. But Beijing's minister of foreign trade has already made clear that Beijing is less than pleased with President Trump's latest announcement which, like the last one, took them completely by surprise (though it's not all that surprising considering that the latest round of trade talks barely lasted half a day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It has become painfully obvious, to anyone with a pair of eyes to see, and ears to hear, and a brain to think, that the nominal leader of the Free World, and "alleged" writer of the book, "The Art of the Deal", (ghostwritten, of course), cannot manage to negotiate his way out of a bloody paper bag!!!

If President Trump did have this capability, we would not be fighting these economic wars with China right now; and that's just a fact!!

And what concerns me most intensely, is how trade wars can morph into shooting wars, sometimes, at the drop of the proverbial hat!!!

Is there not one "adult in the room", in the Bowels of Power in DC, who is capable of thinking a scenario through to its logical conclusion?!?

Looking at the worsening, horrific messes with both US domestic and foreign policies, the blunt answer, has to be, "HELL, no!!"
