    China and the US aren't even negotiating any more. The election is on the way, China would rather wait for Trump to lose. Trump could lash out in the mean time and jack up tariffs, but that would be electorally self-defeating. The stock market would crash is the face of increased tariffs, which is not a good thing to do in an election. Trump missed his opportunity.

    Yea... 3 years of the stock market not going anywhere aren't going to help his reelection chances. He needs the chinese to come to the table, but they are done with his sh*t.

    Great, let the tariffs began.
    It will be felt a little bit but the end others will take the place of the lose of Chinese products.
    We wouldn't be in this position if China would have stuck with the agreement by allowing the U.S. in it's market.

    You'll frame it as the market going nowhere for 3 years. The Dow was 19,827 when Trump took office. As of today, it's up 31.8% at over 26,000.

    As for Trump not being reelected, the Chinese are smarter than you. They know the incumbent automatically has a very good chance of winning reelection. Your TDS is interfering with your ability to think this through properly.

    It will have gone sideways for 3 years by November 2020.
    Past performance is no indication of what will happen in the future. Trump chance's of reelection are extremely poor for an incumbent.

    Vegas is giving Trump a 50-50 chance of re-election, and that is not fully reflecting the new norms of lawlessness registered with Trump’s election (since bourgeois society consistently tends to underestimate the effect of creeping Bonapartism even as they hysterically make hyperbolic cries about tyrannical dictatorship).

    China wants a deal with the U.S. that improves its bargaining position. Trump wants a deal with China to prove he is the master of the deal. So all he has to do is give China better terms than Obama and the TPP gave them, and claim victory. His base will believe him, the businesses hurt by it will seek compensating advantages, and Trump will keep shucking and jiving.

    Trade with China is the only thing masking the depression conditions the U.S. has faced since the 2007 market crashes.

    The stock market is at record highs today. You REALLY need to put that meth pipe down and pay attention.

    The stock market hasn't moved at all in 18 months. And it is not currently at all time highs.

    The Trump policies made the Dow shoot higher than any other time in history.
