You and your company are free to trade with whomever you want . Why should other companies not be afforded the same ?

Then what?

If there is even a hint to be Oil self sufficient in the near future Trump would have threatened tariffs on cheap Canadian Oil as leverage, or even threaten the cancellation of XL as a bargaining chip. None of which has happened it let's you know how dependent they are on Canadian Oil.

Yeah, Trump needs to watch himself - he's such a bloody egotist that he can't see that China is unlike no other and won't be bullied. He considers himself to be a good negotiator but I doubt the Chinese see him that way and are bullies like he is. It's going to be interesting (to say the least) to see where all this goes and I certainly hope it's not where some have suggested here. Isn't there someone who has some influence over the President or is he simply too stupid to take advice from others. Never mind, don't answer that ……

Trump’s Trade Threats Hit China’s Stock Market and Currency

SHANGHAI — Months of struggling with economic problems at home and bickering with President Trump over trade are starting to take their toll on China’s financial health.

China’s stock market has now fallen close to levels not seen since a crash shocked global investors three years ago. An elite Chinese think tank affiliated with the government warned this week that the chances of a financial panic had risen significantly, shaking markets even more.

Some people are too un knowing of what the actual facts are to have valid opinions.

so they should have "nopinions" instead.

Please: START BRAIN BEFORE ENGAGING KEYBOARD!

I hope no one else is investing their money on YOUR say so!

Are you watching the Trump show ( er press conference AKA Trump monologue )?? Apart from the fact that he does not even let a reporter complected a question.......... there was some comments about CDA, Trump does not like the CDN negotiators. and is prepared to do the tariff thing on cars .......

Trump also did NOT meet with Trudeau

I guess, he is not happy that he can't have his way as easily as HE wants.

If he does the "tariff thing" on cars, he will find out within hours, where the REAL power lies in North America.
