    Hiking tariff on Chinese imports is not a proper solution . Should USA deal with China that there import should be on specific percentage . In case of much import by them should be seized the products ..

    not the entire world wants to be in the U.S. (not America, AMERICA is a fucking damn continent, not a country). I am Colombian, and i desire to be in Deutschland, Sweden, Norway, oder Finland, not definitely not the U.S.. You should as well highlight the part when you mention that there is "free press" in the U.S. when that essentially isn´t true. The descriptive video was good, but i can appreciate a clear inclination saying "the U.S. rules the world", which is not good, you know the actions and intervention of U.S. democracy in some countries around the world, most likely non developed and developing countries, like mine, and the results are, as expected, not the best.

    The only motivation of Trump to reduce the deficit with China imposing tariffs is to get out of the debt and improve the american economy. Besides, it it something completely normal to do, considering China had high tariffs for US products before.

    I have a lot of respect for pat and i can understand him taking an anti China stance as he doesn't want to be in the bad books of the ruling govt let alone the americ people because of his ethnicity but i whole heartedly disagree with all the assumptions he has made about China right from IP theft, lack of innovation etc. The us as an economy was built on IP theft. The Manhattan project, supersonic flight, space rockets, personal computers etc are all products of IP theft. Just because that happened some 50 to 75 years back and we don't talk about it doesn't mean it happened. Silicon valley is a prime example of IP theft. China lacking innovation? Now that's a first. The US is at least 10 to 15 years behind China in 5G, drone technology, robotics, AI, HMI etc. So if there is a lack of innovation then it is there in the US.

    Behind the Barbed Wire: China's Concentration Camps
    October 18, 2019

    By Tony Perkins
    "I had to be strong. Every day when I woke up, I thanked God that I was still alive." --Sayragul Sauytbay, Uyghur
    There are harrowing stories -- and then there are the stories that seep deep into our bones. Sayragul Sauytbay's is the kind you don't forget. Her survival in China's concentration camps isn't just a miracle -- it's a warning that true darkness has settled over parts of the East. The most excruciating forms of torture are happening behind barbed wire walls that Beijing has tried hiding. And for the million people trapped inside, the only hope they have to escape their tormentors is international attention and pressure.
    Kidnapped by state officials in the middle of the night, Sayragul remembers the terror of being taken -- her head covered in a black sack. Told she was being taken to a camp to "teach Chinese," she didn't know where she was -- only that she'd stepped into a living nightmare. Forbidden to cry or speak, she changed into prison clothes and watched her hair fall when her head was shaved. Cramped into a room with 20 others, she found out that her feet would be shackled from then on -- even in sleep. The punishment for even the smallest things, she says, was constant.
    "Torture -- metal nails, fingernails pulled out, electric shocks..." David Stavrou, who tells her story, writes that the camp's commanders set aside a room to inflict the worst kind of pain imaginable. The inmates called it the "black room," because they were forbidden from mentioning it. "There were all kinds of tortures there. Some prisoners were hung on the wall and beaten with electrified truncheons. There were prisoners who were made to sit on a chair of nails. I saw people return from that room covered in blood. Some came back without fingernails." Every prisoner was forced to take pills and get injections -- treatments they didn't realize were slowly sterilizing them. Others were the subject of gory human experiments.
    Every evening was devoted to the listing of sins, which the prison guards defined as everything from not learning Chinese properly to sleeping on the wrong side to refusing to sing propaganda songs. Stavrou pauses, watching the tears well up in Sayragul's eyes. They're in Sweden, where Sayragul was finally granted asylum after her escape. She starts to talk about the young girls, her voice breaking. The policemen, she explains, would take the pretty ones away with them, raping them until they couldn't sit down.
    "One day, the police told us they were going to check to see whether our reeducation was succeeding, whether we were developing properly. They took 200 inmates outside, men and women, and told one of the women to confess her sins. She stood before us and declared that she had been a bad person, but now that she had learned Chinese she had become a better person. When she was done speaking, the policemen ordered her to disrobe and raped her one after the other, in front of everyone. While they were raping her, they checked to see how we were reacting. People who turned their head or closed their eyes, and those who looked angry or shocked, were taken away -- we never saw them again. It was awful. I will never forget the feeling of helplessness, of not being able to help her."
    Sayragul didn't sleep much after that. Even now, she closes her eyes and sees their faces. "I will never forget the camp. I cannot forget [them]. They are innocent. I have to tell their story, to tell about the darkness they are in, about their suffering."
    Adrian Zenz is one of the few people who was determined to prove that this was happening. Working alone at a cramped desk, he has spent years combing through the data on the internet, trying to prove to the West that these camps exist. His research, a slow and tedious process, led him to a trail of bidding papers, budget plans, and satellite images that show the quiet construction of these torture chambers -- holding as many as a million and a half people just like Sayragul. "I feel very clearly led by God to do this... I'm not afraid to say that," Adrian insists.
    Thursday, on "Washington Watch," he explained how his work forced the Chinese to admit the camps exist. "I had felt leading from God to just keep doing that data search... Nobody else was interested. Nobody was publishing it. I never had a media request over it. I was just quietly slaving away -- and it was a huge amount of work... And then came the time when I clearly felt, 'I'm supposed to do this.' I felt God saying to me, 'You should stick out your head.'"
    He did, going public with thousands of pages of documents. Suddenly, the Chinese went into propaganda mode, "inviting the media and diplomats and visitors from overseas to visit these camps... We can see on satellite how they have taken away some of the watch towers. They have removed some of the barbed wire, some of the high walls and the cameras inside the classrooms, and they make people smile and dance." But the smiles are hollow -- like their hope that help will come.
    If they've lost faith, it's because some Americans haven't given them any. The NBA, Apple, Google, Hollywood, and countless others seem willing to do anything to protect their interests in China -- even if it means condoning a regime of unspeakable horrors. But make no mistake: every pair of shoes they sell, every iPhone, every Hollywood movie script written to gain approval of the communists' censors is facilitating the real-life horror that is playing right now in China. Until these companies find their voice, a million Sayraguls waste away -- casualties of cowardice we should all be ashamed of.

    Never trust the Communist .. they are here in the US .. Americans are kind hearted, trustworthy and naive. College professors teach and give away trade secrets and new inventions. Foreign students should attend our universities and return to their countries. The universities will have vacant seats for American students. Example: the lady got her college degree and in fact a spy.
    We are NOT going to lose our #1spot to China. Let's all work and help this country I love.

      @Jonathan Fan since the 70s they grow 23fold that's quite a bit of expanding, how you ask ? Well check the numbers here
      They want to expand and grow, so does 195 other countries, I happen to live in USA and this country growth and expansion is my priority.
      Military wise they don't stand a chance, they know that and don't even try, only chance they got is wait out the president Trump, continue exporting 500 B (with a big B ) to USA and turn around and buy USA slowly with our money.
      Americans built China, and I think we expanded them enough.

      Edvin Saletovic do you know why China wants to expand? Because China has no choice but to expand. China has too many people, and all people want a good quality of life, Western countries want China to stay in a poverty country, but Chinese people want to live a better life and that population, it has to surpass the US economically, that is like the core of national interest. Will China become dominating in the world leadership stage? I don’t think so. If China really becomes aggressive politically and militarily, like the USSR back in the day, China’s power won’t last long, because many other countries will stand up against this absolute government even falling apart back home in mainland China. Across the history China has experienced that many times. Just know this: many people, high quality of life, it’s overall economical power has to be on top, no other way. It doesn’t mean at that moment China will be a perfect state, there will be problems existing as well, but it doesn’t compensate the quality of life of American people. In the future, USA should develop into more like a Scandinavian country, peaceful stable and high quality of life

    China got the whole eastern continents in its hands. US is all talk when forming relationships with its allies, while China talks with money and that's all that matters. Too many countries are indebted to China and soon it will create a new world, one that is independent from western world. HK and Taiwan becoming china, Philippines aligning their alliance to China, Highways that give trade to both India and China, Australia trade to China. The US got to stick out for their boy Japan and other SEA countries like South Korea if they want to disrupt China's dominance.

    I'm afraid this is way to easily put. These numbers explain only superficial things. Politics in China allow them to be very creative in replacing their dependency on the US. I'm afraid that the US is at a disadvantage. When both powers don't bend the US lacks China's ability to replace the others imports, while Tech that US produces is easily found in other countries.

    Why trade war? - bc we just found out China doesn't play fair. China wants to keep snaking around and we are like: "nope". There are many politicians connected to China's economy. [it's scary and you should research this]
    Who needs who? - we both need each other.
    Who will lose in this trade war? China. Although the US will lose jobs and money, China has billions of lower-class ppl in factories.

    We need this trade-war. Although we might lose money and jobs, the CCP is very dangerous for our future. It's not about jealousy, hate or discrimination. It's about their mentality. They are supremacists and that ain't good. oh, and they are also totalitarian.

    Excellent economics video. Factual. Plenty of belt and road world domination... (power) inundatiing American's with exported stuff. Enough with the latter! Betting on our buying power is like betting on tourism. It's unsustainable in the long run. India has good cause not to open their whole market, yet they're in ours, too. China and the rest of the world are only doing what we allowed Japan to do for over 80 years. As a result, they want economic revenge!? Every US citizen is responsible for world trade. Yet, we are the most despised. Why should we bear this negative WT burden alone while communist China use our capitalist system for their geopolitical and economic expediency?
