    A truce !!http://www.bbc.com/news/business-44190169China and the US say they will halt imposing punitive import tariffs, putting a possible trade war "on hold".

    Donald Trump is only a distraction while the real rulers are acting  and obtaining what they really want, and they are working fast. The USA can not go into a trade war with China because they  can be defeated in that war. The 21st century is the century of the Chinese capitalism, and the USA is an empire in retreat and decline, they can not kick butts like in the old days

    http://www.bbc.com/news/business-44306941EU leaders have a "gun held to their head" over the threat of US tariffs on steel imports, the head of trade body UK Steel has warned. Gareth Stace said the EU needed to impose safeguards to curb Chinese steel once destined for the US that will now be heading to Europe. "About 20 million tonnes of Chinese steel would need to "find a new home to go to and, because we are a free and open market here in the UK/the EU, it'll come here, we believe, and therefore further damage our sector – not only from the direct impact of tariffs in the US but the surge of steel coming here." The EU has already said it will respond by imposing tariffs on US products such as motorcycles and jeans.

    What about the 25% tariff on European trucks that the USA has been imposing for more than 50 years?

    The USA farmers have been receiving a Federal subsidy for many years to avoid bankruptcy and lack of income, that is the reason why they have approved prepaid Letter of Credit to Cuba for purchase orders to buy poultries and porks meat which is a violation of the embargo. Many peoples do not know that Cuba has made business deal with the USA farmers before Obama opened diplomatic relation with CubaMost farmers voted for Donald Trump but most of them employ Mexican workers to do the farming jobs, but the new tariff is going to hit them harder because Mexico and China are going to impose their own tariff on their products, and in 2019 the USA government is planning to reduce their subsidy. https://www.downsizinggovernment.org/agriculture/subsidies

    Here is President Macron’s contribution to this discussion in an interview on French television yesterday:

    Quote:
    Macron warned that “economic nationalism leads to war. This is exactly what happened in the 1930s.”

    Well, nationalism was not the cause of WW2, it was the rivalry between the capitalists to dominate the world market and the resources of the earth .  Nationalism was the ideological vehicle that they used to obtain workers support and nowadays they are using the same tactics. Trump MAGA is the best example which is a slogan of Ronald Reagan and at the present time it is a tactic used by right wingers and left wingers China is already raising the flag of nationalism and national security like Canadá and the USA. The chicken law is an old tariff law implemented by the USA
