HAT comes around, comes around.
It’s been months since the trade war between United States and China erupted. It’s a clash that even the Philippines has been affected. All throughout the cycle, the policies of US President Donald Trump and Chinese Premier Xi Jingping clashed.
The United States has imposed tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. In response, China imposed new taxes on $60 billion worth of American imports.
China’s trade sanction is lighter than that of the Americans because Beijing is running out of American products to impose tariffs on. This is one reason why Trump believes that the United States can easily win a trade war with China.
In the aspect of geopolitics, China can undermine US efforts to disarm North Korea by not enforcing US sanctions. China can also confront the United States in the South China Sea.
