  1. Everyone that has a head exploding over this trade war, ask yourself this. Why are we in this position in the 1st place? All of this MASSIVE trade imbalance has been going on way way back. And Trump wasnt part of it. I sure wish the whiners used all thier energy back then

  2. Our POTUS is losing it….he needs honest helpers, not these continual lap dog spinners trying to rectify his goofs. All this expert commentary about how this (potentially senile) old man is ‘maybe really thinking’ each and every time he makes another stupid comment or tweet.

  3. About 15 year's ago i said A big country like America Should trade with China in the Orient why did the US only trade with Japan? So The US has dealt a lot with China for 15 years Today, Japan bought corn, which China bought for 15 years. Are you happy

  4. Why bother? He is just going to charge his mind.
    Why dont you back a real leader that has been fighting for us his whole life. Bernie Sanders 2020

  5. Bring our businesses back home, stop buying China’s product. They obviously feel they don’t need us for anything so give them what they want.

  6. Whats hard to understand that the man said he had second thoughts? That means he may have thought about trying something besides tariffs, before realizing its the only thing that will work. These people are idiots. Trump get these saboteurs away from you and your office. They have only served to slow you down and derail the train.

  7. Trump says China called and wanted to do a deal. However…

    " a spokesman for China’s foreign ministry wasn’t able to immediately confirm the details of the phone calls on Monday. Later, Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of China’s Global Times newspaper, said in a tweet that top trade negotiators hadn’t spoken by phone in recent days and that Trump was exaggerating the significance of the trade contacts.

    Trump later, at a separate bilateral meeting, insisted that calls were had at the highest level and was not aware that China was disputing them. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, also in Biarritz, said "there were discussions that went back and forth and let’s just leave it at that.”

    Yeah, let's just leave the fact-checking at that guys. Too much fact-checking can be… embarrassing?

  8. Let me answer fake news, you don't know what he was thinking unless you mind read. He told you he should have been tougher what's not to believe. She sounds like a parrot!

  9. She's asking a specific question, and he's answering something completely different. He's like a wind up doll that can only walk in one direction.

  10. Very simple Trump is not one to telegraph what he is going to do – keep the enemy guessing, he does this with everything he does

  11. How many times is she going to ask the same f***ing question? Yes, Trump has a strategy of talking tough in public and then softening his positions behind closed doors. And sometimes he’ll do the exact opposite with dictators like Putin or Kim Jong-un.

  12. Lol so funny to see the hate from trumpsters when someone speaks facts against their narrative. This lady is asking the right questions and trumpsters are yelling kick her off of the NETWORK.

  13. Stop trading with China! There was a deal made just last month and they didnt follow through. Give another country a chance, drop this corrupt nation already. How much intellectual property does that nation have to steal from us until we wake up and stop allowing it??

  14. Don the Con is doing what he's done his entire life. Lie, cheat, steal and blame others for all his failures. But now without daddy's millions to bail him out, he kneels before his puppet master, Putin. His new daddy bails him out and Donny Dumb Nuts heaps praises on him. Then tries to get Russia back into the g-7. What a tool. Useful idiot is what the Russians call him.

  15. AKA Trump wannabe brother..
    Has the look on his face as a deerwood in the midst of faced in the headlights..
    Trump is a special needs idiot..

  16. Again the aides have to rush in & clean up the mess Donny made ….. Like a toddler who went poo poo in his diapers

  17. Trump really has no idea what he's doing. His strong-arm tactics are so obvious that the rest of the world doesn't even pay attention any more. Evidence – Denmark's eye-roll on buying Greenland. The rest of the world is now seeing exactly how well they can all do business without dealing with the US.

  18. Even Fox News does not believe what comes off the mouth of the Grand wizard whose credibility is even lesser on the international stage.

  19. All Trump really said was that he wanted US consumers to pay more for goods. In all of this it is the US corporations to blame but the US adapts to racism better than adapts to facts. It's the companies that put themselves in a position to be taken advantage of by the Chinese government because they wanted access to the huge Chinese markets.

  20. YES…IT'S TIME TO BRING BUSINESS ''BACK TO USA'' WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF WALL ST. GETTING RICHER ON ''OUR'' HARD WORK…TIME FOR A CHANGE…WE THE PEOPLE …REMEMBER US ?

  21. let's tell China to go to London and kiss baby trumps but and while they're at it please change his diaper he does not like to be wet cuz he's going to crap all over China Obama gave or our jobs to China for a couple egg rolls study shoved in his pocket now he could buy a vacation home him and Joey Boy God save the president Donald Trump and God bless him he doesn't eat egg rolls OB

  22. GOD BLESS MY PRESIDENT TRUMP AND GOD BLESS USA.🇺🇸👏🏿👍🇺🇸👏🏿👍🇺🇸👏🏿👍🇺🇸👏🏿👍

  23. This woman is NOT a good news presenter! She continues to ask questions about something — when Steve Miller, President Trump's spokesman has ALREADY EXPLAINED what Trump TOLD him were his real "second thoughts"! Then another five minutes of this woman asking AGAIN and SPECULATING big time about what President Trump "might" have meant to say! And that dufus "pundit" doesn't know what to say to her SPECULATIONS and scrambling over the place with HIS own speculations! Jeez, what a waste of time!

  31. Who is this Fox anchor who thinks she knows better than the President when it comes to trade issues with China? Yes, she ought to belong to CNN not Fox!

  32. I hear numbers being spouted about the Chinese have ripped us off. Big numbers, but name one product and how much the theft was worth to the thieves or conversely the estimated loss incurred by the company that had it's product stolen? It's one thing to point fingers but how about facts? What exactly was stolen, how much was the loss and how was that estimated loss calculated; based on what? Also please note if that same company that was "ripped off" hired Chinese production facilities to produce that product and the increased profit the American Company gained when that product was sold back to Americans and abroad based on the lower cost of Chinese labor and production. Please include how much less profit would have resulted had they chosen American labor and production facilities to produce the same product stateside and sold it for the same price? In fact, if they had hired American production facilities would the product have been affordable to the America consumer?

    I'm just curious if these claims are "Trumped Up" or there is some fact behind them. Being a CPA I know how any number can be calculated in a variety of ways by including or by excluding variables. To quantify the amount of a theft loss their has to be an equation or method to value it. If a car is stolen you know the value can be based on a List Price or or current market value. Otherwise you might pay $100 for a bottle of OJ or 8 rolls of TP. But not one person anywhere has been close to specifying exactly what product, how much and how calculated. That leads me to believe there is absolutely nothing to back up these claims. It sounds more like sheep having the wool pulled over their eyes or rather, their brains. Please provide some specfic proof. When I make a claim I make them based on facts, not hearsay. One of you bright Fox readers must have a at least one fact. Without one a judge would dismiss your claim in court in 5 seconds So without simply repeating what the next guy said, provide some facts. Otherwise look up the defintiton of Talking Heads.

  33. in case most trump people dont know,china trade with america is only 7% now which has become insignifant,so trump constant china bashing is a diversion tactic for other more serious problems at home???

  34. Thank you President Trump for calling out the pompous elitist and stopping the transfer of wealth from America to communist China and stopping our allies from taking advantage of America. We are praying for your continued success winning for America. The fake news media is the enemy of the people.

  35. Too funny, only on Fox… hey white boy, everyone in my country and around the world hates you and our leaders have no respect for trump but are ALL now playing him like a fiddling fool.

  36. HAHAHHAHAHAHAH CNN IS DOING CARTWHEELS RIGHT NOW TITLE READ TRUMP RETURNS TO WASHINGTON AFTER 3 CONFUSING DAYS AT G7 MEETING THET CANT REPORT WHATS REALLY HAPPENED CAN THEY GOD WHAT DESPERATE MOTHER FERS THIS IS SO DELIGHTFUL WATCHING THE MADNESS POUR OUT OF THESE INSANE BRAINLESS FERS ON THE LEFT AND IN THE COMMENTS HERE SO WONDERFUL I NEED MORE POPCORN AHHA AAHAHAHAH TRUMP 4 EVA !!! 2020 !!!!

  38. THE CHOSEN ONE IS GOING TO BRING THEM TO THEIR KNEES !!!! I WANT SCREEN SHOTS OF THIS EVENT WHEN IT HAPPENS SOON OHHHH GOD I NEED MORE POPCORN !!!

  39. Fox better be careful about their emerging Anti Trump sentiments. I know one viewer who is getting sick of it.

  40. Quit lying and covering for Trumps big 👄, it's his worst downfall. Everything he does gets shadowed under his rhetorical 👄

  41. When President Trump said "Yes, I have seconds thoughts about Everything", I interpreted that as continuously reviewing all of our policies, for improvements. It did not feel like regrets about prior actions.

  42. Michael : My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator.

    Kay Adams : Do you know how naive you sound, Michael? Presidents and senators don't have men killed.
    Michael : Oh. Who's being naive, Kay?>>> "The Godfather"…

  43. Kudos to this man for saying it like it is. Even though she tried repeatedly to make him say something bad about Trump.

  44. I have just watched the first Costco opening in China, it was a riot, they LOVE all the US products. The cleaning stuff, vacuums, refrigerator, Fords, SUV, medicines, fruits, corn, soy beans, pork, beef, AC units, tobacco, cotton products, etc. Even we raise prices by 20% they still crave it. The problem with our global trades is the US companies do NOT bring ALL the trillions profit back to the US. Instead they reinvest in other foreign business, or expanding overseas. Tariff-free means you can raise prices based on demands, not artificially raising prices.

    The draft dodging cowardice idiot and his dummy Wilbur Ross started the trade wars and now our economy is stuck in the "self-circulation" mode. US is making a hell lot LESS money from abroad, and will lose many many jobs as the pain increases.

    I guess the GOP adults are not watching this man-child idiot any more.

  45. Let’s pivot away from China to the Americas! North, South and Central. If we can move manufacturing to Central America, not only will it bring prosperity to those nations, but it will resolve our illegal immigration issues, not to mention save significantly on shipping.

  46. Soybeans supply chain is going to Russia now. Trump gave our nation's soybean supply chain to Russia. worth at least 15 billion a year. No wounder Trump does not need a Pay check.

  47. English is not my first language. but this is news to me ,second thoughts means more aggressive? why can't he just say he is frustrated, or couldn't express himself in front of other leaders?

  48. Why not got to the source and ask the president instead of gumming your jaws asking questions of other people about how trump thinks… we stand behind him and trust he will do the right thing… after all this president is determined to do what is best for america and I am sure he seeks advice before making a decision.. thank you

  49. The real problem is the fact Trump has no clue on how to deal with China. Just sucker punching China with tariffs will never work. China will only punch back. Every time Trump imposes new tariffs on China he only makes matters worse for us Americans here at home.His actions against China is already ruining the lives of many farmers across America. Trump needs to get our allies to come together with us on this issue. It is the only way China will back down. There is a big problem with that. Our allies around the world hate Trump.

  50. The biased is showing from the host she is obviously anti Trump and she isn't reporting the news she was trying to get the guest to say that Trump was lying

  51. Trump is a complete IDIOT, China can trade with Brazil, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Venezuela Russia, Canada, Mexico, South Africa, instead of America and our farmers will lose their account with China, Thank you incompetent arrogant ranting President.

  52. Trump is not for "We the people, Trump is for " We the privileged".Wake up Farmers you voted for this incompetent arrogant ranting President.

  53. tRump is a dinosaur a weaponized idiot with little pickpocket hands and a brain the size of Sean Hannity's right wingnut.
