    You don’t tell your citizens what to do. You don’t tell the free market what to do. You don’t tell other countries what to do.

      @Spades Cadet — No doubt about it. He is an expert in this field, with a great track record of five bankruptcies. Midas touch in reverse — whatever he touches, turns to sh*t.

      @Redpill christopher — It is a fact, which you must admit that it is true, that China’s economy is growing more than twice as fast as the USA’s, so perhaps it could be worth while to try the commie system here, in order to avoid the coming recession? (just joking).

    • Make America Grovel. Again

  3. Most companys are multi national. Trump is playing poker with the economy.

    “Very weak Fed”…He does realize…he’s in charge of the fed, so is he projecting here?

  5. Ya Know, Donny boy’s tweets ain’t news. Reading them out loud is almost as bad as watching him flap his jowls.

    • jerzy chroscicki : “I hereby order . . . “??? Trump thinks he can ORDER America to send China to Coventry? He’s totally LOST it! 🤣 😂 😆 😂 🤣

    • T Boned : Alex-Q-Jones has completely Dunninged your Kruger, son. You are unmanned by you Trumpian hysteria. Love it 🤣

      @T Boned you have nothing to support what you say
      but your own blind belief led by some radical-rag conspiracy-theorists
      No evidence

    • T Boned you DO realize the paradox that at which while you were trying to debunk a “conspiracy theory”, you have YOURSELF CREATED a conspiracy theory about the “strong” and “sick people”. Funny how you implicated those domestic organizations, nothing of which belonged to a foreign organization, one whose threat is imminent and more severe. Good day sir/bot/ivan

  6. 😧😧😧he’s not even at g7 yet, this week is not over😨😨😨

  7. Trump has lost the plot he has bankrupted many businesses before and now he’s trying to bankrupt America this is so bad for the entire world it’s amazing how one man can put the world at such a risk time to get trump out

    • You have zero clue.

      Greg Wilcox — What is really amazing to the world, it is not, that Americans were conned by his countless lies, like; “Mexico WILL pay for the wall” etc, and have had him elected, — an obvious economic dumbo, who went bankrupt five times, but with the help of some crooked “financial advisers” and book keepers, by some unexplained, incredible MIRACLE, managed not only to recover, but this self-confessed “King of debt” says, that somehow, he became a billionaire! It could only happen by some great MIRACLE, or much more likely, and ONLY, by TAX and some BANK FRAUDS.! That’s why, he is fighting so hard, tooth and nail, with an army of lawyers, to keep his tax returns secret at all costs, in order to avoid going to jail, for his tax crimes.
      Another thing, that the word is amazed by, and can’t understand, why the American Congress, is so impotent, shackled itself with many laws and time consuming court procedures, and can’t force IRS to submit Tax returns and financial records of this obvious crook, who is running the country, and by his constant, ridiculous statements and countless, brazen lies, became an embarrassment to the country.

    • yes we over here need our land of the free , the never left a man behind , US heros back
      and this trump joke needs to be gone ,
      he has the US the LOl stock of the world then again he is doing everything for putin
      and when putin sees trump wont get voted back in a 2 time things are going get so much worst in the last weeks of this clown

    • Putin want’s Russia to be seen as the world super power… trumps job is to destroy the US economy and world position for Putin. ( the golden shower tapes must be real as they hold them over his yellow toupee ) The US should cut off his weekend golf trips to his own resorts, reaping him cash and costing the tax payers millions per trip)

    But Putin is telling trump what to do – he owns trump.

    • Oh say can you see where our freedoms have gone?
      What was easily lost by our apathy and greed.
      Banksters put us in debt, obscene profits bad bets.
      In the still of the night,There was no o-ver-sight!

      While we cheered our HOME TEAMS, Lawyers stole all OUR DREAMS
      Outsourcing our jobs, closing factories down!

      Oh Say can you tell me who our leaders represe-ent?
      Corporations run the show, and along we must go!

      On the shore, dimly lit, politicians were split
      by lobbyists galore – making deals on the floor.
      Health insurance sky-high, no-one cares to ask why.
      Now Big Pharma makes the rules. FDA is their tool!

      No-one noticed A THING, the real news was MIS-SING!
      What news we might hear causes panic and fear.

      Oh say can you tell me where our government has gone?
      In the land of the sheep, and the home of the bribe

    • Folks, your (((media))) are no longer REPORTING information, but have become, PROVABLY, an instrument of the greater-cabal, and are pushing the literal TREASON, SEDITION, and SUBVERSION, that The Crack-Head, and his “Administration”, pushed against both then-Candidate Trump, and now-President Trump, and this LITERAL and FAILED effort at a coup-d’-etat!!!

      ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! Call (((the media))) out on the BVLSHT and SEDITION every chance that you can, and make sure that people know that (((they)) are part of this LITERAL COUP-D’-ETAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • @christopher hannaMuller investigation. People that are indicted
      The first is Paul Manafort who is going to prison not for Russia interference for tax fraud, wire fraud, and unregistered foreign lobbying for Ukraine not even for Russia
      The second major indictment was george papadopoulos who lied under oath to the FBI not russian interference, no russian connection
      The third which is the most famous is lieutenant general Mike Flynn who again is indicted for a process crime and was indicted not for Russian collusion but for not filling out his paperwork properly for the incoming president become national security adviser counsel advisor for unregistered foreign lobbying for the Turkish government.
      the fourth person who was indicted was the former attorney to the President Michael Cohen who we have on the record now lying at least 15 times to Congress under two separate testimonies now he was not indicted for Russian collusion he was not indicted for interference he was indicted for taxi medallion fraud, tax fraud, and wire fraud

      there was a fifth Obama’s White House Counsel was indicted for unregistered foreign lobbying taken a four million dollar wire transfer that was laundered through Cyprus for again with Paul Manafort essentially being the lawyer on file his criminal trial still pending he has pleaded innocent.

      Those are the Americans so far there might be more you could have been done all this by just telling the Department of Justice to do their job. Bob Muller was not needed for over 30 million dollars creating a public assassination campaign against a president that was originally based on faulty intelligence
      For 2.5 years using over 30 million dollars of US taxpayer to go after five people none of which committed Russian collusion at all instead had their own personal crimes that they committed themselves

    Will Donald J. Trump be the FIRST businessman who will MOVE his many businesses in China, back to the country? how about his daughter Ivanka, is she eager to bring her sweatshops of impoverished Chinese workers that she doesn’t even provide with any benefits nor maternity leave to the many women she so ‘proudly employs’ over there to a place near us, in the US, will she pay health insurance to her American workers?

    • @xlioilx
      I Noticed you have No Content so I’m assuming (Troll).
      Our Economy did not get to this point naturally, Trump shoveled 1.3 Tillion into the hands of the Bankers, then gave them unbelievable Tax Breaks.
      Waisted Money, used to buy back stocks, and layoff employees, Now they want more. The Chosen One has played his hand, he has no more tricks up his sleeve.
      This Economy has been driven by a Clown. And that’s the part that you don’t seem to understand. Pentions are about to be ripped out form underneath the working class.

    That the best statement made. “He doesn’t really know what hes doing.” No truer words have been spoken.

    • Kenneth Ratcliff and there’s a lot of ducking for cover GOP members too cowardly to say enough with the thought bubble policy on the run.

  15. Trump just loves that he is assigned the power to affect world markets and the economy.

    U.S is the next thing on trump to bankrupt list. XD

    • Obama already nearly bankrupted the economy & allowed American manufacturing jobs to flee the country. Trump is working to bring all that was lost under Obama back. That is unless you enjoy destroying your own economy & jobs for cheap Chinese goods, that eventually you wouldn’t be able to afford because you lost your job…

      @MCAD DC Think you mean Bush police state Jr. Hey did your crooked GOP ever find those fake Iraqi WMDs? Didn’t think so. As phony as everything else republican. Like trickledown economics and crook Nixon or traitor Reagen. Can’t tell who’s worse yet, Bush SR or Trumpski. Both flavors of fascist garbage ruined America, let’s see if Trump takes the next step. That’ll be my answer.

  17. The greatest USA bloopers – “Trump-et” The wheels are off the limo. Imagine Trump-et having to walk. ‘It won’t be far’, Foot spurs might reappear.

  18. He runs the country like how he runs his businesses of which many failed miserably. The US is next to go

      Trump has been bankrupted before. Now, he is going to bankrupt the country! Why do I care? I am not even American! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Yup… he’s gonna bankrupt the US…. move away and live off all the deals he’s making

  19. trump will be to blame for ruining the Obama economic recovery. Big Blue Wave coming just like 2018

      We just can let China become so rich and powerful that they own us. That they are better than us.That they can control us. That they take all our jobs and companies.

  20. Just to clarify it: China did NOT steal the western intellectual properties (knowledge & technology)!
    The western companies wanted to profit from the Chinese market and labor and China offered them a good deal – with one condition: We give you the chance to gain good profits by both selling your goods to our citizens and by manufacturing here at low labor costs. But in exchange for that we want you to share your knowledge and technology with us.
    This was part of the business contracts and trade agreements because the western countries and corporations AGREED to this condition.
    And now it seems that China ended up simply making the better deal there despite all those corporations making good profits.
    Therefore – well, just deal with it. That’s how it is.
    China is simply beating the western world by exposing the greatest weakness of Capitalism and using it in a really smart way against it: Greed.

    • It’s even more hypocritical than that.
      Copyrights, IP, patents, etc. are all measures to restrict competition to join in on the supply side, to increase it to meet demand (if one supplier doesn’t supply as much as demand is able to pick up at cost).
      If you look up the ‘free market’ definition you will find that those restrictions actually are the opposite of free markets.
      The Chinese are no saints, by far, but in this case they are actually acting more free market capitalist than the ones who claim to stand for it.
