    (1) They engage in unfair currency manipulation in direct violation of the WTO!
    (2) They engage in subsidies that are bankrupting our commodies companies (like Steel, rare earth metals etc) which is in violation of the WTO!
    (3) They artificially suppress wages!
    (4) They set up protective tarriffs against US to protect their key industires!
    (5) Intellectual property rights are a JOKE in China!
    (6) The esponisage they engage against us is that of enemies at war!
    (7) They have DESIMATED our manufacturing sector!
    (8) They have CREATED by far the largest in history trade deficit between two countries
    (9) They have made the WTO a JOKE!
    (10) And now they are in our faces, stealing American Company's Goodwill and creating FAKE COMPANIES!!! This is a crime and we need to punish them for this! Trump is right toss a 20% tarriff on all goods from China TODAY, until they changes these dishonest trade practices!

    Check out the slideshow from CNBC! It's amazing our politicians let them get away with it.

    The list of Fake Chinese Companies:
    (1) Apple
    (2) Disney Theme Parks
    (3) IKEA
    (4) Starbucks
    (5) Wizard of Warcraft
    (6) KFC
    (7) Harry Potter
    (8) Nike
    (9) McDonald's
    (10) Disney Store

    Rather cheap politicians who line their pockets with Chinese gold! Clinton and Gore were the first ones. Clinton, the worst President in US history, is the man who dropped the barriers China had to our markets and helped them get into the WTO. Now they are going to takeover our economy in the next decade! Good job Slick Willy!

    I think that is one of the reasons we are devaluing our currency to stick it to China just like they are sticking to US.

    Oh, yes!

    "Back in the mid 1990′s Bill Clinton’s Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, fought to prevent the sale of guided missile technology to China. The technology in question, allowed the chinese to be able to build guided missiles. Christopher, as Secretary of State had the sole authority to approve the sale.

    When Christopher wouldn’t budge, then President Bill Clinton made an executive order that transfered the decison to Commerce Secretary Ron Brown. When Clinton made that move, Brown okayed the sale, and some of America’s most valuable technology was sold to our communist enemies.

    After the sale was revealed, along with claims of cash contributions to Clinton’s re-election campaign by the Red Chinese Army, funneled through American bag men, Clinton claimed that President Bush had also allowed the sale of the technology."

    Why aren't we? Because they're hanging a trillion dollar burden over our head and we're too weak to take care of our problem.
