China Replies Trump Over Threat To Cut Off Ties by Shormiey(m): 2:52pm On May 15
China and the US are better off cooperating to end the pandemic for the sake of reviving the economy and rebooting industrial production, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said on Friday.

Zhao said this at a media briefing while commenting on U.S. President Donald Trump’s warning that bilateral ties might be halted over Beijing’s alleged responsibility for unleashing the coronavirus.

On Thursday, Trump said in an interview with Fox News that the US might cut all ties with China in light of Beijing’s coronavirus-related policies.

“The stable development of U.S.-Chinese relations is in fundamental interest of people from both countries and is also favourable for global peace and stability.

“China and the United States should now strengthen cooperation in combating the COVID-19 epidemic in order to defeat the coronavirus as soon as possible, cure patients, resume production, and develop the economy,” the spokesman said.

Trump has repeatedly claimed, although with no evidence provided, that the virus that caused deaths, lockdowns, and economic standstill all around the world had in fact been developed in a lab in Wuhan, a Chinese city in the Hubei province from where the first reports of an abnormal respiratory disease came last December.

The U.S. president has threatened China with consequences if its responsibility for unleashing the virus gets proven.

Asked by the host on Thursday to comment on a statement by one of the U.S. senators that the U.S. could stop issuing visas to Chinese students in retaliation, Trump said that his country could possibly go as far as cutting all bilateral ties altogether.

China has so far consistently denied the accusations, stressing that its policies were transparent throughout the outbreak.

The world is thinking of cutting ties with them aswell.. everyone is just waiting for who takes the first step..

The chinese Govt would ruin your factories by subsidising cost for their factories to supply you at unimaginable cost till you are addicted to chinese imports and all your forex going to them..

They would bid for contracts in your country, bring in their workers at expatriate pay and repatriate your forex on a build operate and transfer contract..

They are building free trade zones in your country to take full advantage of your populace should incase you revolt in future.. the free trade zone is bound by international laws and without custom duty for imports while they repatriate your forex

They would eventually loan you funds with massive interest tied to massive revenue income generating infrastructures in your country while repatriating your forex..

They block you gaining access to their populace with your tech apps, but sell tiktok to the world without hindrance while they repatriate your forex..

They have indirectly crashed the price of oil and have massive reservoirs while pushing up electric cars and robots to never depend on you..

They build chinese restaurants in your country and segregate you from visiting the restaurants tagging it "chinese only"...

They are the first country in the world in this current age whose "MC-Donald's" ever read "Blacks are not allowed"..

Now the question:
WHAT DO YOU GAIN FROM CHINA?

The chinks are always in the news for bad reasons.
US of A can cut ties with these chinks IF it will favour global peace & stability. Just a subtle trade war that turned global bio-warfare.
Donald Trump talks TOO much, at the end of the day, he may say; "I was being sarcastic."

It will deeply tell on the China's economy should Us cut the ties with them..

Most of the multinational companies that are producing stuffs in china are not own by the Chinese. For example, Apple products. You'll see design in Cali, made in china..( The company making them in china isn't own by the Chinese.) So on like that!

Google search Foxconn... They made Play stations and Xbox, blackberry, Nokia and so on!

grin Trump is a talkative,too Emotional, always contradicting himself since this pandemic started, he will one day cause a very terrible war with his choice of words... Just watch CCN for a day, u will see some of his blunders.. Yesterday he said he prefer less testing of people in USA in other to reduce the number of corona virus patients nationwide.. many medical experts came for his head, if u fail to test people how do separate those affected from spreading the virus? One doctor asked, the man should calm down first

Trump can never do that, American Economy will collapse.

"China is the second-largest foreign holder of U.S. Treasurys.As of February 2020, it owned $1.09 trillion in Treasurys, more than 15% of the public debt held by foreign countries. The U.S. debt to China is lower than the record high of $1.7 trillion held in 2011.

China buys U.S. debt to support the value of the dollar. This is because China pegs its currency, the yuan, to the U.S. dollar. It devalues the currency when needed to keep its export prices competitive.


The U.S. depends heavily on China for providing the low-cost goods that enable income-constrained American consumers to make ends meet. The U.S. also depends on China to support its own exports; next to Mexico and Canada, China is America’s third largest and by far its most rapidly growing major export market.

And, of course, the U.S. depends on China to provide funding for its budget deficits. It is the largest foreign holder of U.S. Treasury securities – some $1.3 trillion in direct ownership and at least another $250 billion of quasi-government paper. A lack of Chinese buying could turn the next Treasury auction into a rout.

America depends on China because of a fundamental weakness in the structure of the U.S. economy -- a profound and worrisome lack of domestic saving. In the fourth quarter of 2017, the net domestic saving rate (depreciation-adjusted saving of households, businesses and the government sector, combined) was just 1.3% of national income.

Lacking in savings at home, and wanting to consume and grow, the U.S. must import surplus foreign saving from abroad – and run massive balance-of-payments and trade deficits to import this capital. In 2017, the United States had merchandise trade deficits with 102 nations!"

Trump is merely looking for distractions from his abject failure in response to the Covid -19 chaos. We the voters will not be deceived nor swayed with his infantile attempt at changing the narratives. Nov 3rd can't get here fast enough.

While the dotard is busy bashing China in public for election purpose, the orangutan idiot, his daughter and son in law are busy importing from China on daily basis. Ivanka Products are made in China, everything at Marlago and other TRAMP's properties are filled with Chinese made products.

This is all for election showmanship. We know better though, only the rednecks and some dumb dumb will fall for his theatrics.

Can somebody tell mumu Trump that China is not some third world shithole like America. China has a bigger economy than the US. when compared in purchasing power parity which is the accurate way to measure the strength of economies. America is China's bitch with over $500billion deficit annually and china will continue giving America doggy style for another 10 years
