The Chinese government does not want to show any weakness as it comes under pressure from the #UnitedStates, its biggest geopolitical rival, and much of the rhetoric coming from the leadership and state media is about China fighting a #tradewar 'to the end'. Yet a tit-for-tat approach with the US could escalate tensions into an economic 'cold war' between the world’s two biggest economies, and it could spill over into areas beyond trade, potentially derailing growth and undermining social stability in #China.

The government’s real concern over a trade war with the US is not about the direct losses in exports or jobs, but China’s role as a key part of the global economy. With hopes fading for a last-minute compromise between Beijing and Washington before the first round of tariffs kick in, President #XiJinping has been sending the message that China will remain open for business.

President #Trump has threatened #Europe again with stiff tariffs on auto imports if they don’t drop unspecified trade barriers, but the risk might not be worth the reward. Relatively few European-made #cars are actually sold in the United States, for one thing. And even if Trump were to get his way, Europe wants something in return: Easier access to the highly protected and lucrative market for SUVs and pickup trucks that generate the bulk of profits for American automakers Ford and General Motors.

What Trump also fails to mention is that the U.S. has a much higher 25% tariff on foreign-made SUVs and light trucks, the sweet spot in the American auto market. By contrast, the EU charges 10%. Europe and Japanese automakers can get around the 25% tariff by building more vehicles in the U.S. German automakers have built a handful of plants in the South that now employ almost 120,000 Americans. Japanese companies employ another 130,000 or so U.S. auto workers.

Columnist George Will writes: "Paul Ryan and many other Republicans have become the president's poodles, not because James Madison's system has failed but because today's abject careerists have failed to be worthy of it."

Trump continues to create chaos in the executive branch of government, with all his lying, first saying one thing, then doing the opposite:

Republicans are still feeling like they are hostage to the more extreme support base of the Trump camp..
This is Democracy in paralysis (see bold text paragraph below.)

With President Trump suddenly more antagonist than ally, House Republicans confronted the grim reality Friday that they may have no way out of an immigration mess of the president’s own making.

They prepared for a last-ditch legislative effort next week with little expectation it would succeed, as their frustrations with the president became palpable.
.....
The president had argued for days that only Congress could solve the border crisis. But when he instead bowed to pressure and issued an executive order reversing the separation policy, Trump undermined the GOP effort to pass a bill.

Trump and other Republicans have accused Democrats of being unwilling to compromise because they want to use immigration as a campaign issue ahead of the November midterms. But Democrats retorted that Trump’s Friday tweet proved that it was the president who wanted to keep the issue alive for political reasons.
....
“What has become clear is that this president has no goal posts for what he wants to achieve on immigration because it’s actually, in his mind, a useful political tool,” said Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), a member of the House Judiciary subcommittee on immigration. “It says exactly who he is, which is callous, conniving, and really not focused on trying to solve any problems.”
....
Last month, Republican moderates moved to force votes on several immigration bills - including bipartisan measures that would easily pass with mostly Democratic support. But GOP leaders, who feared a conservative political backlash if a Republican House advanced such legislation, undertook a furious push to stymie the moderates.
