Donald Trump got hit with an ultimatum that just changed everything
Donald Trump promised during the 2016 campaign to take on the new world order.
But the Washington, D.C. establishment and their pals in the media have done everything they could to undermine him.
And Donald Trump got hit with an ultimatum that just changed everything.
Donald Trump’s trade negotiations dominated the weekend news coverage as well as the G7 summit in France.
The Fake News Media, as well as the heads of other foreign governments, panicked over President Trump taking on China for ripping off American wealth and jobs.
China retaliated against the President’s tariffs by putting its own tariffs on American goods in an effort to tank the economy and force President Trump to waive the white flag of surrender.
But President Trump held firm, and Chinese Vice-Premier Liu issued a surprising statement wishing for a ‘calm’ end to the trade dispute.
“We are willing to resolve the issue through consultations and cooperation in a calm attitude and resolutely oppose the escalation of the trade war,” Mr Liu, who is President Xi Jinping’s top economic adviser, said, according to a government transcript.
“We believe that the escalation of the trade war is not beneficial for China, the United States, nor to the interests of the people of the world,” he added.

“We welcome enterprises from all over the world, including the United States, to invest and operate in China,” he added.
Trump’s negotiations with China will define his Presidency.
If the President fails to strike a good deal or the economy goes into a recession because of uncertainty surrounding the trade war, then President Trump will lose re-election.
But if the President comes through on a core promise to the American people, he can ride that to re-election.
