Trump combats China's intellectual property theft

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, author Gordon Chang joined me to discuss Donald Trump's ongoing trade war with communist China.

During the Cold War, American Presidents sought closer ties with China as a means to isolate the Soviet Union. But the geopolitical situation has altered greatly, and now China is the main enemy of the West.

Trump understands this reality, it's why he's working to untangle the relationship between the American and Chinese economy. He knows America has a more powerful economy, and that China needs America.

Unlike previous Presidents, Trump is taking action to combat China's rampant theft of American intellectual property.

WATCH my FULL interview with Gordon to learn how China is becoming MORE autocratic and what tools Trump may use to continue punishing them in this trade war.

I support President Trump’s trade war with China. I have been a protectionist for a long time. In a number of articles in hardcopy over the years, and online, I have been advocating an end to the free trade the neo-liberals regard as a central pillar of global economics. In my Blog entry for 17th January 2017, “An Outline for Social & Economic Regeneration in Britain”, I suggested (among other measures), that: “Britain must re-establish economic protectionism, that is, to impose punitive import tariffs on all goods from abroad that we could (and once did) manufacture in Britain.”
(As an aside, have I perhaps missed a report and analysis in The Rebel on the results of the Midterms last Tuesday, and the Democrats gaining control of the House of Representatives? Not watching TV, I would n’t have known of this did I not read the mainstream press. Perhaps there’ll be something in The Rebel later this Thursday, when America’s day begins. We are of course some hours ahead in the UK).

And watch Mohammad Trudeau and “our” politicians grovel, snivel and acquiesce and sell out Canadians at record speed

As a content creator myself, I applaud President Trump’s efforts at putting pressure on China. Only an idiot would let a bully keep on ripping him off when he has the means to stop it. The only tried and true way to stop a bully is with force. In Trump’s case, it’s through economic means..
