Love or hate Donald Trump he has the Chinese at a disadvantage. The U.S. economy is the strongest it has ever been and there is no end to it. Companies are hiring and new spenders are entering the market everyday. The unemployment rate is the best it has been in 60 years. Workers are becoming hard to find.The U.S. does not need China to buy its goods. U.S. consumers are fuelling the economy and the U.S. is economically self-sufficient. Restaurants are booming with new disposable income from new entries into the working class.Trump can increase tariffs and the U.S. will feel little downside. Employment will still remain strong and consumers will keep on buying U.S. goods. U.S. companies are finding new suppliers and have less need for Chinese goods.The stock market is going to run scared for no reason. Buy buy buy.Victor DiNardo, AmherstburgShare Your ViewsSend letters to the editor to email@example.com. (Don’t send them as attachments; put them in the body of the emails.)
