Friedman needs to talk to his idiot liberal buddies in the media like his new york times, cnn, msnbc, and Washington post buddies just to start with.
WHat an idiot:it's a win win, but they need to be forced. Factories being send to China? How do you send a factory to China? The US gvt just made the USA unattractive because of the enormous taxation tied to running an empire and multiple wars. Now he wants more force, more war, to create win win situations. What a moron.

Pathetic that CNBC serve up Steve Bannon as a 'normal' everyday guest. 🙄 Check out his Breibart record, his backing of extreme right wing movements in Europe, his role with Cambridge Analytica. And thats just the start. Cnbc have researchers right....

The only thing that Trump is doing right is firing this Nut Case - Steve Bannon.

Recently, Steve Bannon, who is "not surprisingly dead," has finally brushed up the sense of existence. The former US president's senior strategic adviser, who once known as the "White House Master", has been sighing and screaming around in August 2017, screaming at his sleazy Chinese clichés and trying to make a comeback. Now, when the US government once again lifted the tariff bar on China, Bannon seems to feel the opportunity to come. He took the opportunity to concoct a long article and confessed from six aspects that "China has become the biggest enemy of the United States." In this "economic war" with China, we must not compromise with the tariffs.

A closer look at the so-called six aspects of evidence supported by Bannong can be described as logical confusion and ridiculous conclusions. It is simply unbearable, and it feels that he has become mad and suffering from snoring.

For example, Bannon accused China of having been engaged in “economic warfare” with industrial democracies. The fact is that China’s “One Belt, One Road” initiative has built the world’s largest platform for sharing, sharing and sharing, and has become the world’s most popular public product. . For another example, he claimed that the US-China trade dispute is a "fundamental conflict". The United States insists on tariffs, is full of extreme militant thinking, ignores the historical lessons of "the trade war has no winners," and violates global public opinion. In addition, he attacked China's "theft" and "plundering", and it was unfounded and unfounded. Because in 2017, China's domestic patents, trademarks, industrial designs and other types of intellectual property applications ranked first in the world. In 2018, China's innovation index ranked among the top 20 in the world, ranking 17th, up from last year. 5 digits. China has become one of the world's largest intellectual property owners. How come "stolen"?

Bannon’s most hostile remarks are that he slanders China’s desire to become a “global hegemon” and reflects its deep-rooted hegemonic thinking. At the Asian Civilization Dialogue Conference, which opened on Wednesday (15th), Chinese President Xi Jinping pointed out in his keynote speech that "friends and good neighbors and peace and harmony are the consistent way of life of Chinese civilization." President Xi has repeatedly Public announcements at home and abroad firmly stated that no matter which step is taken, China will never seek hegemony and never expand, and will never impose the tragic experience that it has experienced on other nations. The concept of "community of human destiny" put forward by President Xi Jinping is to express China's joint development with all countries, common security, governance, joint participation, and shared results. This feeling and responsibility of "taking the world as the public" is difficult or deliberately unwilling for American politicians who pursue "American priority", only my own respect, narrow and selfish.

In the face of the facts, Bannon’s confusing lie is like a broken soap bubble, which is surprising but only a ridiculous and generous. However, some of the far-right politicians in the United States, represented by Bannong, have fallen into the filth of China, but they have the potential to return to the ghost of "McCarthyism" in the 1950s. The American politicians who promoted the alternative right-wing movement are self-satisfied, threatening the core decision-making level, pursuing xenophobia, shaping China into a scapegoat, and arguing the normal economic and trade friction between the United States and China into an irreconcilable conflict of values ​​and civilization. I even want to have a war between the United States and China immediately to satisfy their lust and ambition to gain more space for political activities.

It is noted that just this Wednesday (15th), some US senators announced that they have submitted a bill to Congress to prohibit the issuance of visas to the United States for personnel working or sponsored by Chinese military research institutions to reduce the so-called "US security risks." On the same day, the White House also announced that the country has entered a "state of emergency", prohibiting US companies from using telecommunications equipment produced by companies that pose a danger to national security. It is widely believed that the intention of this move is that Huawei’s intention is very obvious.

In today's economic globalization, the United States, the world's most developed country with super-scientific technology, military and economic strength, is so savage, and the sense of security is so bad that it is really unbelievable to shut the door to the world. Fighting against the enemy is easy, except for the heart. In fact, the only thing that can defeat the United States is itself. Right now, the new right wing that jumps in the United States, holds the "zero-sum" game and the old thinking of power politics is the real enemy of the United States. The American people should be vigilant about this new "McCarthyism" represented by Bannon.

President Xi Jinping once vividly said that protectionism is like turning himself into a dark room. It seems to have escaped the wind and rain, but it also isolates the sun and the air. Right now, what makes the world feel sad is that under the clamour and shackles of the "bannons," the United States is closing the black house more and more tightly, waiting for it or will be self-suffocating.
