    China Exempts 16 Types of U.S. Products from Retaliatory Tariffs ahead of Trade Talks with U.S. | International Trade Law
    China adds some U.S. farm products for additional tariff exemption - Xinhua | English.news.cn
    Looks like China is hungry for some U.S. pork and beans.

    Trump understands leverage better than any president in my lifetime.

    If Obama was still in office, they would demand $4 billion in cash stacked up on pallets, waiting to be loaded on a flight to China.

    And they would get it.

    No, I didn't know that. As long a Pelosi is House Speaker and the House is ruled by the current crop of petite communist wanna-be's, they will never allow anything that would make Trump look good.

    Even to the point of destroying this country. That' how hateful, spiteful, and pig-headed they are.

    They're in no position to demand anything and Trump knows it.

    To understand why, you first need to take off your partisan blinders and forget all the fakestream news spin and bullshit talking points about Trump's trade war causing China to hurt our farmers by putting huge tariffs on pork and soybeans and I'll break it down for the forum.

    Right now, China needs food and fodder and the favored source of protein in China is pork and the primary source of fodder for their domestic swine is soybean meal. Half a year ago they didn't need food and fodder because they were swimming in it.

    In fact, because of the African Swine Fever epidemic they were trying to export their pork rather than import it because the Chinese suddenly had more dead pigs on their hands than they could possibly consume domestically. ASF is a hemorrhagic fever akin to ebola for pigs, only it spreads easier and it has decimated China's domestic swine population. In fact, the USCPB seized 50 shipping containers loaded with over a million pounds of illegal Chinese pork that was smuggled to a New Jersey port 6 months ago.

    Now China is facing food shortages and that's why they are in no position to demand anything. In fact, Trump could get even more leverage over them by threatening an embargo.

    If Dems and snowflakes had their way we would have surrendered by now and would be back down on our knees before China just so we could go back to buying their cheap crap...
