    orange with hair got spooked by China

    Cancels his tariffs and invites them to the table again

    China didn't even give him a face saving move

    President Donald Trump bowed to pressure from U.S. businesses and concerns over the economic fallout of his trade war with China, delaying the imposition of new tariffs on a wide variety of consumer products including toys and laptops until December.

    Trump blinks

    President Trump on Tuesday undermined his argument about tariffs on China, admitting that they can cost consumers money and damage the economy. After watching stocks tank Monday while Wall Street raised recession alarms, USTR on Tuesday said much of Trump’s latest 10% tariffs on a broad range of consumer goods including cellphone, laptops and toys would go into effect Dec. 15 instead of Sept. 1.

    Trump caves on tariffs

    Calling Trumpís bluff
    Trump has now partially reversed himself on the 10% tariff, without any corresponding concession from China. In fact, China has toughened its stance recently, essentially calling Trumpís bluff. China has refused to fulfill its pledge to start buying more U.S. farm products, for instance. And it has allowed its currency to fall in value more than usual, which makes Chinese exports to other countries cheaper and boosts domestic sales. Itís possible China has decided to bear the pain of Trumpís trade war for the next 15 months and hope Trump loses the 2020 election.

    That has left Trump, who fancies himself a master dealmaker, negotiating with himself. Trumpís initial threat on consumer imports from China was to levy a 25% tariff. But when it came time to do it, he lowered that to 10%. And now itís 10% on just half of those products, rather than all of them. And thereís an appeals process for eliminating the entire tariff.

    Trump actually accelerated The End with his dumb China trade war. Now China has folded Trump like a Chinese noodle and forced him to say "Mate"

    And he just did but still might be too late. Stock just plummeted 500 pts in 1 hour

    He will put it off until December. The Chinese are pissed and are simply going to wait him out. There are no indications that they are going to give an inch.

    In December, he will ins ute it, right after the Xmas season. This will be on the face of the first effects of Brexit starting to cripple one of our main trading partners, and dragging the EU down with it.

    Fun times ahead.

    Trumps strategies to fight off recession until 2020:
    - say there's no recession fears
    - blame it on the fed
    - talk about the squad and/or israel
    - propose to buy another country
    - propose a tax cut every other day only to take it back the other every other days
    - when all else fails have a campaign rally with a few thousand of his frog looking mutant re ed mongrel base

    the latest meltdown by Trump was just that. A meltdown after China announced its tariffs.
