  1. company like Google and Facebook,put many countries' national security under US control,that's why China setup a fire wall.

  2. Epstien is raping young girl with trump, how is that'. is that a normal think in U. S,' school shooting, church shooting, concert. Racist. It is a broken country.

  3. 👍@Stephanie-You do such a good job of presenting the issues and the pros and cons in a brief video. Thanks. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  4. Checkout these unfiltered and unbiased media outlets. 100% factual
    The Jimmy Dore Show, Secular Talk, Status Coup, Democracy Now, The Rational National, The Humanist Report, Kim Iverson, Abby Martin's show, MCSC, The Tim Black Show, Redacted Tonight, Real News Network and many more…. Trust that we need change & if you're tired of being lied to by these networks like fox news, cnn, msnbc, abc, cbs, the view…ect they're the sheep herders leading this 🌎 to destruction #GETINFORMED #REVOLUTION

  5. China has been stealing from America thank God we have a president that stands up to them. Big win for president Trump 2020.

  6. "integrity and honesty" from this administration?? ha. China is unstoppable and any attempt to block its emergence will fail, and fail badly.

  7. I love how republicans have changed the focus and demonized socialism . In the 1950s communism was the republicans worst enemy. Today there is money to be made in China so communism is not so bad so now socialism is the evil power.

  8. huawei risk? hahaha! 1: US not like that they are already much more advanced than them on AI and 5G
    2: with huawei the US cannot spy on 3/4 of the world!

  9. What did we gain in more 30 years of constant trade deficit with China? Cheap toys, cheap clothes, cheap shoes, cheap appliances, etc. In return we lost a lot of Mom and pops jobs, stolen some of our technology, …. Why trade when China is potential adversary. Why can we not treat them like Soviet union?

  10. Trump is taking china for a ride .there is of course no intention to reduce tariffs .trump wants free money at the cost of harming world economy .

  11. The only threats that China and Chinese companies present is that their competitiveness and innovation is surpassing us. Americans have lost their edge in the playing field they created. You can't just adjust and scramble the rules when you're loosing

  12. What American media usually do is putting purely theoretical statements out there and expecting people from the rest of world buy it, what’s more ironic but totally understandable is that some of them actually believe them. So, why are companies like huawei and ZTE putting you at risk ? Give me some concrete stuff not a nebulous theory like you delivered in the video.

  13. shes not even saying anything. no actual reporting. Just summarizing how she felt about what experts said and the things she thought were important. For all we know they could have said that they love the trade war with china, but of course NBC hides the actually interviews from us. FAKE NEWS

  14. Trump's sanctions against China's 325 billion levy tariffs are absolutely correct. The United States is more benevolent than the 100% tariff of the US-Japan Plaza agreement. China is secretly hostile to the US is a long-term national policy. When a friend gets killed need to put the snake in his arms.The United States only has to force foreign-invested American companies to go out of China. It only takes another year and a half to wait for the foreign-invested foreign companies in China to withdraw from China. The tooths is pulled out from the China snake, and the United States will be safe and secure.

  15. This is another reason why the left should never lead again ???
    The left calls this a WAR
    The Chinese call it an adjustment ????
    Dims are stupid
    and they are pushing the green deal ?????
    Another deception of the left ????

  16. Bring down China economically is the best way to avoid the third World War. if not, China will bring down the US in a decade. Trump and his advisers are aware of this fact. Those who are not should read “Death by China” ASAP.

  17. People on this earth dont take a lesson during world war if bigger countries relations had restraints and the economic crisis had begun in this word wtf there is no way out of that except war . Put that in your head guys so stop this stupidity of humans because the story of ww1 will be repeat again.
