Default Trump on China Visit: "You don't serve dinner to the enemy"

Audio at link.

Quote:
As Washington returns to normalcy after the pomp and circumstance of Wednesday's state dinner, businessman — and perennial "maybe" presidential candidate — Donald Trump isn't happy about the night's festivities.

He called in to "Fox & Friends" and unleashed.

"For us to be holding state dinners for people who are just totally manipulating their currency ... is hard to believe," said Trump. "You don't give dinners to the enemy and that's what they're doing."

If it were up to a President Trump? "I would say, 'Get off your plane, come to my office and let's talk.'" (Trump has made China the subject of many criticisms of late).

If that didn't go so well, Trump had a back-up plan: "I would have sent them to McDonalds if we didn't make a deal and say, 'Go home.' The fact is they're laughing at our leadership and we're letting them get away with murder.

I'm not a huge Trump fan, but he makes more sense than most of our current politicians, and he's definitely a pro-American guy, so to Trump.

What should have been asked is when the Chinese government is going to do something to stop so many of the companies based China from mistreating their employees and for producing dangerous sub-standard products.

I'd vote for him. I'd vote for ANYONE who has a remote understanding of finance, economics and the private sector.

Trump says we should start taxing Chinese imports. They're manipulating the currency to keep the Yuan devalued.

Quote:
The United States can't compete with China and should consider taxing Chinese imports to level the playing field, says real-estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump.

A tax on Chinese imports would enable the U.S. to repay Chinese lenders and would create jobs.

On the flip side, just the mere threat of such a tax would force the Chinese to unveil more favorable trading terms with the United States.

"The fact is we should be taxing Chinese products, a 25 percent tax. We owe them money, we'll pay them back very quickly out of this tax," Trump tells CNBC.

"What the tax will do, it'll elevate what they've done with the phony manipulation, with the manipulation of the currency. And you'll be selling toys and lots of other products that are made in North Carolina and Alabama and Iowa."

Currently, China has no respect for the United States or its leaders and until it does, its business sector will have the upper hand via Chinese exchange-rate policies, he says.

"It's almost impossible for companies to compete because of what they've done in terms of the manipulation of their currency."

Chinese President Hu Jintao and U.S. President Barack Obama recently announced $45 billion in business deals between the two countries, including a $19 billion deal for 200 Boeing airplanes.

"I absolutely believe China's peaceful rise is good for the world, and it's good for America," say Obama, according to the Associated Press.

For Trump, however, the deal will bring short-lived benefits, if any.

"They're ordering some Boeings. That's peanuts. They're starting their own airline manufacturer," Trump says.

"I hate to say it but Boeing won't have a chance because of what they do, because of the way they act."

I don't like the right or left regarding China policy. The right doesn't throw dinners but makes deals just the same. Unfortunately there isn't a major party that has my interest at heart in this matter.
