Jerome Powell of the Fed is like a mad-man trying to destroy the US economy.

His actions are devastating, irresponsible and insane!

China - Economy

He doesn’t realize that in doing this he may actually destroy China’s economy instead.

President Trump is a shrewd negotiator and he obviously believes now is the time to encourage China to make changes to their trade barriers with the US. China may have no choice but to go with what the US offers to keep its economy afloat.
