I don't agree with trump on lots of things, but it does appear he has won the trade war with china.

There is no way that can be called yet. "Winning" skirmishes or battles early on do not nesc. indicate final outcomes....

The Chinese are patient. Even if they "lose", they will not forget.

I am going to give it about 5 or 6 months before deciding how this will really turn out. Hoping we will win but like Chemsolder said China doesn't forget.

We have a huge trade deficit with China, they have unfair trade practices and a government support economy that make it so we dont realy have equivalent free trade with them. Our government has called for larger tarriffs on many of their products, they said they can have a few tarrifs up too, now they say maybe they can make things more fair.

  As I see it ,the consumer market will have more to do with 'tariff raised' prices and things will stabilize soon anyway. I do so love my low cost Chinese junk....

I am not a fan of tariffs but i do think that the chinesr tone has drastically changed. Was it trump? Hard to say. But i think he might have had something to do with it.

I was really hoping this would be the type of outcome we would get with all the discussion about trade wars. This will be very good for the end consumers if it goes as we hope.
