《US accuses China of ramping up hacking efforts amid trade dispute》 （The Hill）
《美国指责中国在贸易战中加大了黑客攻击力度》 （The Hill）
Chinese hacking efforts aimed at theft of U.S. technology has sharply increased ahead of President Trump’s planned meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping over the two nations’ trade dispute, according to a U.S. government report.
The Associated Press reports that Trump’s top trade representative Robert Lighthizer issued a report Tuesday detailing a “sharp rise” in Chinese hacking efforts over the past several months ahead of the planned meeting at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit in Argentina later this month.
“China fundamentally has not altered” its policies related to theft of foreign technology, “and indeed appears to have taken further unreasonable actions,” Lighthizer’s report reads, according to the AP. Hacking attacks, the report continues, have “increased in frequency and sophistication” in the last year.
KenTuck FrumpKenAreY : So your assertion is the Chinese have not been hacking our computer systems prior to Trump becoming President. Now that’s something to laugh at. And it will continue long into all subsequent administrations.
plant man : MAGAts seem to think the only weapon China has in this trade war is tariffs. Hacking is just another weapon they have at their disposal.
somnarifficJoseph Ma : Once China finds a new source for soybeans (South America) they are never going to return. Trump has screwed over farmers for a generation.He hurts the exact same people he thinks he’s helping. None of this affects educated Blue America.It also doesn’t hurt his own bottom line, which is his number one priority.

Brown_Skin_Girl : Other nations are ramping up their efforts to fight cyber crimes and Trump still thinks the war can be won by selling arms and ammunition to the enemy.
extrememoderate : Wait, did the first daddy diddlers daughter get her patents yet?
Cher : Nothing that another big beautiful slice of chocolate cake won’t fix, right Donnie?
QuestionAuth : China says, …”There’s a Trade Dispute??!! …Hadn’t heard about that”Dotart Donnie, the great “negotiator”, is getting his lunch handed to him… …So are we.
Novelist56 : In December the tariffs go from 10% to 25%. Oh well!
Bobby Loomis : Maybe with that 19 billion dollar handout t Rump gave the farmers to buy their silence/vote, they can afford to build some new silos. Whaaa, whaaa, whaaa.No crocodile tears here.
liso esplayLone Star : google edward snowden, lolWake up please…None of the Snowden disclosures indicate that the US hacked chinese companies or the chinese government for the purpose of stealing trade secrets.
JadedFanliso esplay : If you noticed the world’s leaders have been largely silent regarding the tariffs on China and this is why.China has very few friends left because they are the world’s biggest thieves of technology, as well as their aggressive expansion and bullying in places like the South China Sea, and quietly the world would love for them to be knocked down a few pegs and to be forced to change their practices.It has pushed most of their neighbors, including the odd image of Vietnam friending the US, right into the US arms.trump has lots of friends? lol
AreYouPreparedToGoTo : they are already ahead in human genomics thanks largely to bush 43. doubt they will ever be ahead in battery tech.
Bill Manus : Who started the asinine trade war?
