Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

China will offer the Trump administration better market access for financial sector investments and US beef exports to help avert a trade war, according to Chinese and US officials involved in talks between the two governments.

US President Donald Trump and Xi Jinping, his Chinese counterpart, decided at their first meeting in Florida last week that they needed rushed trade negotiations to produce results within 100 days. The two concessions on finance and beef are relatively easy for Beijing to make.

China is also willing to end a ban on US beef imports that has been in place since 2003, officials said, and buy more grains and other agricultural products as it seeks to reduce tensions stemming from the $347bn annual trade surplus in goods that it enjoys with its biggest trading partner.

China has ended their ban on American Imported beef. Does that mean we can finally export Hillary Clinton? She's already tender from being chucked into a van.

Serious question, why was Obama unwilling to EVER pick up a phone and ask for trade concessions from ANY trading partner? Why did he just accept the notion that the US was unable to compete under fair terms? Bigger disaster than Bush.

So China is doing our bidding on norks and trade concessions ?

So this is what winning looks like....

Talking to my South Korean neighbor this morning, a big democrat, he said he loves what Trump is doing, said relatives in South are happy too.

More winning....

Hard to believe Obama was so ineffective in everything. It is almost like he was trying to be an empty suit.

If such a low bar, why could Obama not have even accomplished this meaningless act? His China policy was 'Bend Over'.

So Obama had no trade talks with China in 8 years?

Now admit that he did the same thing that you're all blowing Trump over.

I assume he did. Unfortunately it was just politely asking China to help him push in his stool. Give me a trade concession that Obama achieved? Why did he not get a commitment from Ford or Carrier to keep jobs in the US? Why did he not get SoftBank and Foxconn to commit to creating jobs here? Why did he just accept the notion that American cannot compete?

How about those manufacturing jobs that China stole? Crickets.

This is why the Dems are *so* desperate to tarnish Trump in any way possible.

Trump is making their messiah Obama look the fool.

Putin's chamber pot has been reduced to making excuses for caving so spectacularly on his bid to label China a currency manipulator. SAD!!!!

Here's what likely happened at Mar A Lago: Trump told China they had 100 days, maximum, to make changes that would be impressive not only to Reuters and the WSJ, but also to his voters in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Because at 101 days, one of three things must happen: your tariffs on US products will go to 0%; or, we will raise tariffs on your products to 38%; or, we will require that products coming from China companies into the US market be made in US-based factories by US labor. By the way--said factories will not be put in California or Washington or Illinois--but you do have a choice of any place you see on this map here that is colored Red. Oh, you like red too? Good, then.

Also, excuse me for a second. I need to launch Tomahawk strikes on Syria because they told us they had destroyed all their chemical weapons, and, well. That's on Obama, but whatever. And as soon as you get back, you'll be hearing about a huge bomb in Afghanistan. Don't worry, it's not nuclear. But to the people it's being dropped on they won't know the difference.

Oh, one other thing. You gotta quit buying coal from North Korea. And also move troops to the border because we're probably going to hit that place too. They lied to our former president too.
