《Pence vows no end to tariffs until China bows》 （Reuters）
PORT MORESBY (Reuters) – The United States will not back down from its trade dispute with China, and might even double its tariffs, unless Beijing bows to U.S. demands, Vice President Mike Pence said on Saturday.
路易斯顿（路透社） – 美国副总统迈克彭斯周六表示，美国不会退出与中国的贸易争端，甚至可能加倍关税，除非北京向美国屈服。
In a bluntly worded speech at an Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) summit in Papua New Guinea, Pence threw down the gauntlet to China on trade and security in the region.
“We have taken decisive action to address our imbalance with China,” Pence declared. “We put tariffs on $250 billion in Chinese goods, and we could more than double that number.”“The United States, though, will not change course until China changes its ways.”
The stark warning will likely be unwelcome news to financial markets which had hoped for a thaw in the Sino-U.S. dispute and perhaps even some sort of deal at a G20 meeting later this month in Argentina. U.S. President Donald Trump, who is not attending the APEC meeting, is due to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping in Argentina.
Susan Frank : There may be an end to Pence; Trump is asking others if Pence can be trusted.
Diane S. Baker : After 2 American delegations to China, old entitled guys; China says; “please send someone who knows what they are talking about.”
Marc Hanson : Great, Pence reads his cue card, and the Midwest farmer loses their farms, as there is no place to sell their soybeans now.
Adamas : Seriously you should punish Saudi Arabia not China !
Jasmine Xu : What Trump said before mid-term is only comforting those who lost benefits in trade war, ensuring they would continue to support republican
Naresh Jogani : Am surprised the chinese havent come to the negotiating table
DeeDee : Take a business class. Please!
Ray Gassert : They can afford to outwait us because our retailers need their products more than they need us to buy them.
Mike : China won’t bow. And the tariffs are killing American farmers.
Todd Grady : Hi, Congress? American taxpayers here. Can you maybe take a look at the White House’s tariff policy with China and see if it needs a little tweaking? This really falls under your umbrella, after all.
LoudMouth4 : It’s about protecting intellectual property. For years, politicians like Obama promised to stand up to China and let us down. Trump is fighting for us. If you do not support Trump’s trade war, you do not support the future of America.
LoudMouth4 : Then why didn’t Obama do something about it like he promised while on the campaign trail?
LoudMouth4 : If you don’t have a job to pay your rent, borrowing money won’t solve the problem. You still owe the money and you have another month’s rent due coming up. The fix is a source of income, which Trump is creating for Americans. If you don’t like him fine, but don’t fabricate s___.
David Sena : That issue was around long before Obama. While something does need to be done, wrecking the economy and farm welfare isn’t the answer.
David Sena : Everyone makes promises on the campaign, none keep them all. If you think Obama mismanaged the economy, you’re an idiot. When he took office the world was at near economic collapse. You don’t like him fine but don’t fabricate shit.
David Sena : Obama was handed a near financial collapse but by the end of his term, the economy was still increasing. All the current idiot has not done is not screw it up yet, although he is trying. Ask farmers how great he is doing. Do you know the difference between apples and oranges?
Peter : No…China can’t trade fair. Trump should add more tariffs until a fair trade deal is reached.
Peter : Decades of lop-sided trade deficits are responsible for allowing China to become the power that it is. We paid for China’s economic and military ascent. Time to switch gears quick.
Patricia harris : A stupid smiling all the time he has no idea what’s going on
SpartaTV : Fking hell thats my state flag…. From what i know, China will never bow to Trump.
Donald Adams : Does Mike pence think for himself? Does the republicans work for America? Do they work for tRump? This country is suppose to have a legislature that suppose to work for America.but it looks like the republican party works for Mega rich and corporations. They don’t represent USA.
