  • On this episode of China Uncensored,

  • here comes the pain!

  • Hi, welcome to China Uncensored,

  • I'm your host Chris Chappell.

  • For years, the Chinese Communist Party has engaged in

  • unfair trade practices and intellectual property theft.

  • Which leaves us with a very important question

  • How do you get the Chinese to change behavior?”

  • Pain.

  • Got to give them pain.”

  • And President Trump is dishing out the pain.

  • I know, but believe me,

  • this graphic could have been a lot worse.

  • Anyway, Trump has taken another step

  • in his trade war with China.

  • At the end of May,

  • Trump announced the US was putting

  • $50 billion dollars in tariffs on Chinese goods.

  • And now, Trump is threatening to bring that total

  • to more than $450 billion dollars.

  • That's basically the same price tag

  • as the total value of goods

  • the US imported from China last year.

  • For that kind of money,

  • Trump could buy 90 million Chinese fidget spinners.

  • Or 9 of those golden toilets from Hong Kong.

  • Those would go well inside

  • Trump's golden New York Penthouse.

  • I know I should be impressed,

  • but all I can think about is how you can buy

  • multiple castles in the French Riviera

  • for less than Trump's New York apartment.

  • But this week,

  • Trump backed new measures against China.

  • So whether you like Trump or not,

  • we can all agree,

  • he's bringing the pain.

  • Senior officials saying the administration

  • is getting behind bipartisan legislation

  • that passed yesterday in the House

  • on a 400 to 2 vote

  • that would expand the powers of

  • the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.

  • It would expand CFIUS.”

  • We've talked before about CFIUS.

  • It's a group of government agencies

  • led by the Treasury Secretary.

  • It's supposed to monitor foreign investment in US companies.

  • But CFIUS doesn't have the resources or authority

  • to deal with all of the recent investments from China,

  • where big companies usually have ties to the Communist Party.

  • That's a big deal because Chinese leader Xi Jinping

  • has been promoting Chinese investment

  • in American tech companies

  • as part of hisMade in China 2025” plan.

  • He wants China to become a world leader

  • in cutting edge tech

  • and one way to do that is by buying

  • or even stealing it from American companies.

  • So if Congress approves the new measures

  • Trump is pushing for,

  • it would strengthen CFIUS by expanding

  • the types of transactions CFIUS can review.

  • Trump said in a statement supporting the legislation,

  • We have the greatest technology in the world,

  • people copy it and they steal it,

  • but we have the great scientists,

  • we have the great brains,

  • and we have to protect that.

  • And that can be done through CFIUS.”

  • Chinese state-run media have responded

  • the way you might expect.

  • State media blasted the Trump administration

  • in an editorial titled

  • 'Protectionism symptom of paranoid delusions...'

  • The paper said it reflects the damage

  • being done to trade with China

  • by the, quote, 'crusade of Trump and his trade hawks.'”

  • Trump does not like the termtrade hawksthough.

  • He prefers trade...golden eagles.

  • But anyway, state-run China Daily

  • said it would be the US that wouldfeel the pain.”

  • Aww, it's so nice that state-run media cares about

  • how the US feels.

  • My favorite state-run media the Global Times said,

  • It's time for China to take further self-defense measures.”

  • For example, they're going to come up with a safe word.

  • Actually, because of fears of a trade war,

  • the Chinese economy is already dealing with

  • some potentially serious issues.

  • For example, one state-backed Chinese think tank

  • warned in a leaked note of potentialfinancial panic.”

  • The leaked note was obtained by Bloomberg.

  • Why could China have financial panic?

  • The note cited bond defaults,

  • liquidity shortages and the recent plunge in financial markets

  • against rising U.S. interest rates and the trade war.

  • It doesn't stop there.

  • As you know,

  • the Communist Party loves to censor things

  • from critical voices to Winnie the Pooh memes.

  • But now there's a new thing to censor

  • China's own economic plans.

  • Since CFIUS has gotten everyone talking about

  • Made in China 2025,

  • Chinese state-run media has apparently

  • decided to go the opposite way.

  • The government has instructed Chinese state media agencies

  • to avoid mentioning Made in China 2025 in their reports.”

  • So all in all, it looks like the Trump administration

  • is making China feel the pain.

  • It's still too early to tell exactly how

  • this trade war will go down,

  • but one thing's for sure.

  • The biggest loser in this war is going to be...

  • vape nation.

  • And before we go,

  • it's time for another question

  • from a China Uncensored supporter.

  • Shane Butler asks:

  • What would your first question be

  • if you did land an interview with Xi Jinping?”

  • I'd ask Xi Jinping the hard-hitting questions

  • that viewers want to know.

  • Like, “Why do you wear your pants so high?

  • Is it a stylistic choice?

  • Or is it a medical thing?”

  • Thanks for your question, Shane.

  • What?

  • What do you think I should ask him?

  • Leave your comments below.

  • Once again I'm Chris Chappell.

  • See you next time.

  • Trump may be bringing the pain,

  • but he won't be bringing you the latest China news!
