The U.S.-China trade war has escalated again.
On Aug. 23, 2019, the Chinese Communist Regime (“CCP”) announced it would impose retaliatory tariffs on $75 billion worth of U.S. goods.On the afternoon of August 23, President Trump immediately responded by raising the tariffs on $550 billion worth of Chinese goods.
Trump tweeted: “For many years China (and many other countries) has been taken advantage of the United States on Trade, Intellectual Property Theft, and much more. Our Country has been losing HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year to China, with no end in sight….”
“…Sadly, past Administrations have allowed China to get so far ahead of Fair and Balanced Trade that it has become a great burden to the American taxpayer.As President, I can no longer allow this to happen! In the spirit of achieving Fair Trade, we must Balance this very….”
“…unfair Trading Relationship.China should not have put new Tariffs on 75 BILLION DOLLARS of United States product(politically motivated!).”Trump tweeted
What is the political motivation?According to an article in a German media, the United States demanded an end to “Made in China 2025.”Beijing obviously wasn’t prepared to do that. In the past few weeks, however, Beijing made some concessions but later changed its mind. Why did Beijing do that?That is the biggest mystery. Is Liu He (China’s Vice-Premier) playing a waiting game?

The signs are clear that the CCP is trying to drag this out.This is part of its strategy against the United States.The cornerstone of its plan is that Trump loses the 2020 election, and in his place, a Democrat with special ties to the CCP becomes the next president.,Then the CCP could do as it pleases, just like before.
But even pro-Beijing Joe Biden, former U.S. vice president, and one of the Democratic presidential candidates for the 2020 election, openly denounced the CCP.
Foreign analysts believe that in the States, anti-CCP sentiment has gained dominance in mainstream society.If Biden wants to get elected, he has no choice but to abide by the people’s wishes.In fact, since the U.S.-China trade war began, the CCP has been playing a waiting game all along, and now the whole world sees that.What Trump wants is fair trade, and thus he has demanded that the CCP carry out structural reform. This means Beijing must forsake its authoritarian rule, which would spell the end of the CCP.Of course, this isn’t something the CCP would accept. So why would the CCP want to negotiate?
As Steve Bannon, former White House Chief Strategist, aptly puts it, during an interview on NTDTV’s “Zooming In” show:“Every time they (the CCP) open their mouth, they lie.They have lied on every deal they have set up with the West.They would tell you one thing, and then they do what they want to do.Trump was the first president who said we are not going to do this.”
“And Lighthizer was savvy enough.So you had an agreement, and that agreement basically started to bring the Chinese economy into the world economy, to get away from the slave labor that’s really going on in China and the suppression of Chinese workers.And so it was the beginning of a rapprochement.That’s why hardliners in China, and particularly hardliners after this “Belt and Road” initiative conference they had, where the Wang Qi-shans in the world think that:Hey, we’ve got the West where we want them.”
“We got One Belt One Road, we have ‘Made In China 2025,’ and we have Huawei.The convergence of that will make us the dominant hegemon economically throughout the world. And the way they [the CCP] look at it is very simple.”
“The capitalists in the West have financed us.The corporates have given us their technology.They don’t care what we do to Falun Gong.They don’t care what we do to the underground Catholic Church.They don’t care what we do to the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Buddhists.These people are totally greedy, right?They will give us everything we want, and they will back down.They will back down and then we [the CCP] will become the hegemon and the system will be our system. Trump is the first one to step up to that.”
The CCP’s ambition had all along been to become the global hegemon through communism.On the other hand, Trump has called for all countries across the world to resist socialism. On the National Day for the Victims of Communism, Trump said: “Together, we mourn the unbearable losses so many have endured under communism, and we renew our pledge to continue advancing the cause of freedom and opportunity for all.”
This is the fundamental conflict underlying the trade war! Recently, Trump said publicly that he was “God’s chosen one” for launching the China-U.S. trade war. It’s indeed the case!
Retired U.S. fireman Mark Taylor told reporter Wendy Griffith of Christian World News that Trump would surely be president for eight years. When asked whether he was certain, he said that he was, and he believed that when people saw good things were happening, that the country was thriving, and jobs and the economy were thriving, without a doubt, Trump would continue his work in his second term as president.
Mark Taylor is a devout Christian and a retired fireman. In April 2011, Mark said he heard God tell him that the real estate mogul Donald Trump would be the next president of the United States.
Mark Taylor’s Commander in Chief Prophecy:“The Spirit of God says I’ve chosen this man Donald Trump… I will use this man to bring honor, respect and restoration to America. America will be respected once again as the most powerful, prosperous nation on Earth other than Israel.The dollar will be the strongest it has ever been in the history of the United States and will once again be the currency by which all others are judged. The Spirit of God says the enemy will quake and shake,
and fear this man I have anointed. They will even quake and shake when he announces he is running for President. It will be like the shot heard across the world.
Then [the enemy] will say: What shall we do now? This man knows all our tricks and schemes. We’ve been robbing America for decades. What should we do to stop this?
The Spirit says: Ha! No one shall stop this that I have started…This man’s word is his bond and the world and America will know this, and the enemy will fear this, for this man will be fearless… [The enemy] will spend billions to keep this president out. It will be like money down the toilet. Let them waste their money…This next election will be a clean sweep for the man that I have chosen. They will say things about this man, the enemy,but it will not affect him and they will say it rolls off him like a duck. For even as the feathers of a duck protect it, so shall my feathers protect this next president (Trump)”
Simone Gao (NTDTV): “So the bottom line is, President Trump doesn’t need a trade deal for his re-election?”
Steve Bannon:“No. President Trump definitely does not need a trade deal for his re-election.If the American people see President Trump standing up to the CCP, and demanding the structural changes that he wants, and also start to bring back some of the supply chain and rebuilding our manufacturing base…that’s what the American people, the people have elected him in the upper midwest, the working class and middle class have elected him, they want to see him stay the course and be strong. He promised he was going to do this.It’s not going to be solved overnight, but President Trump has begun a solution.”
On the evening of June 18, 2019, U.S. President Donald Trump launched his 2020 re-election campaign in Orlando, Florida. At his re-election rally, Trump introduced his new slogan “Keep America Great.” Trump commended his administration for its achievements in the first term, and he told thousands of supporters that they shouldn’t say “Make America Great” anymore because they have already reached that goal.
The CCP hopes that Trump will lose the 2020 re-election. How likely is that going to happen? The CCP will probably end up shooting themselves in the foot. Because it has always been God who has the final say in the affairs of our world.
