Is this reversible?
What's the long game here?

So much winning. Global warming is the best thing to happen to Russia since they discovered oil. Not only has our trade war created new competition, it's grooming that competition as added poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Trade wars are easy for the person that can't see ahead to things like this. Trade wars are easy to win if you have all the things we used to have, like allies, the TPP, world leadership, respect and strong diplomacy. Trump's role in this failure is to blame Obama or anyone else and always conclude that it was never his fault, he can't be blamed and he should get a participation award for even trying.

The Chinese cancelled plans last week to tour US farms, didn't they?

Oh wow a new twitler/Vlad conspiracy. Twitler screws american producers so Vlad's farmers can get better in the China market.

Once the new supply lines are set up the old ones are gone or difficult to re-establish. Twitler admin so out of their league. Go back to peddling golf retreats you carpetbaggers.

China now will "support domestic companies in the purchase of soybeans and pork from the U.S.," Chinese state media outlets reported Friday, citing an unnamed official. At the request of the U.S., China canceled its visits to American farms. On a side note, I am coming into a bunch of pigs in the near future. Looks like I will be profiting handsomely. BTW, any of you guys want a free piglet?

Hopes for trade breakthrough fade as China cancels U.S. farm visits

"WASHINGTON/CHICAGO (Reuters) - A U.S.-China trade deal appeared elusive on Friday after Chinese officials unexpectedly canceled a visit to farms in Montana and Nebraska as deputy trade negotiators wrapped up two days of negotiations in Washington."

.."The conclusion from the U.S. side was that we're not close to an agreement,"...

Oh so China knows how to negotiate? Their country is over 3,000 years old! We just elected a reality show host to lead our country.

I am not sure the age of the country has any relationship to negotiating skills. Usually comes down to perceived bargaining power.

China seems to think they have the upper hand; next year trump might be gone, or even if he's still here when the inevitable downturn happens then americans will be desperate to buy and sell with China.

Maybe NBC's writers and producers can write him out if this pickle like they did on his fantasy show when they had to make him look semi-coherent in post processing.

Hey world! How do you perceive the bargaining power of the golfer in chief?

World, "well he didn't win the popular vote, brags how he doesn't read, is obviously a first class idiot, is irrational, renegs on deals, and in all likelihood will only be around another year during which he will no doubt be caught up in other matter more important to him (tweeting, the legs of his assistant, his legal woes, etc.)."

China wants stability. They may use their vast network of hackers and spies against Trump, in which case he would not concede defeat.

Ha. Didn't notice that when I wrote it. Well, have one alert audience member here at least. No, have never watched South Park. In any case, I will have Chinese busting down my door. Going to sell high.
