Varney: Chaos in Hong Kong, China strengthens Trump’s position


STUART: OVER THE WEEKEND, MORE EVIDENCE THAT CHINA’S LEADER XI JINPING IS IN SOME TROUBLE. NOW, OF COURSE YOU WOULDN’T KNOW IT FROM CHINESE STATE-RUN MEDIA, WHERE XI IS CALLED THE PEOPLE’S LEADER. THAT’S THE KIND OF HERO WORSHIP NOT SEEN IN GENERATIONS. BUT THAT’S A MASK. CONCEALING A TROUBLED ECONOMY, A STILL-CHAOTIC HONG KONG AND REPORTS OF GRUMBLING INSIDE CHINA. THOSE ARE REAL PROBLEMS FOR A LEADER FACING A U.S. PRESIDENT WHO WILL NOT BACK DOWN.>>>LOOK WHAT HAPPENED OVER THE WEEKEND. TENS OF THOUSANDS MARCHED TO THE U.S. CONSULATE PLEADING WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP TO LIBERATE HONG KONG. THE AMERICAN FLAG HELD HIGH AS THE CROWD SANG AMERICA’S NATIONAL ANTHEM. THE VIOLENCE CONTINUED. VANDALISM AT SUBWAY STATIONS, BURNING BARRICADES, THE POLICE AGAIN USED TEAR GAS. THE CONCESSION, THAT IS WITHDRAWING THE EXTRADITION BILL, HAS NOT SOLVED XI’S BACKYARD PROBLEM. HONG KONGERS ARE LOOKING TO AMERICA FOR SUPPORT. YET AGAIN, CHINA HAS RESORTED TO MORE STIMULUS TO KEEP ITS ECONOMY GOING. SUNDAY, MORE MONEY WAS RELEASED TO CHINA’S BANKS. WHY DO THAT, IF THE ECONOMY IS GROWING AT A 6% RATE AND EVERYTHING’S FINE AND DANDY? ANSWER, IT’S NOT GROWING AT 6% DESPITE WHAT BEIJING SAYS. THE “WALL STREET JOURNAL” HAS LOOKED AT A VARIETY OF INDICATORS SUGGESTING MUCH LOWER GROWTH, MUCH HIGHER UNEMPLOYMENT AND A SHARP DROP IN CHINA’S EXPORTS TO AMERICA. THEIR ECONOMY IS STRUGGLING. ALL OF THIS HAS PROVOKED SOME GRUMBLING INSIDE CHINA. THE INTERNATIONAL EDITION OF THE “NEW YORK TIMES” REPORTS HINTS OF UNEASE IN CHINA’S LEADERSHIP. COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIPS HAVE A VERY HARD TIME ADJUSTING TO INTERNAL CRITICISM. ALL OF THIS IS THE BACKDROP TO THE TRADE FIGHT. IT SURELY STRENGTHENS PRESIDENT TRUMP’S NEGOTIATING POSITION. HE’S PLAYING A STRONG HAND. THINGS ARE GOING HIS WAY. NOT SO WITH XI JINPING.

You all just wanted the Chinese disappear from the earth, not today it beginning from the early myth of the earth, keep wishing! a 6000 years of human culture and history will be collapse because of the hamburger??? come on people! before think about that look yourself on the mirror! and learn when the Chinese known how to used the chopsticks !?

  2. All of the people in the world who oppress other humans will be called to task by those they are trying to oppress. The above holds true on an individual level and societal level. People who oppress others for their own gain are dangerous and should be dealt with swiftly.

  3. strengthens the position of Trump ?!?!?!?!? ARE YOU A BUNCH OF MORONS ?????? ROTFALMAO ……. it's just makes it clearly obvious who is behind the protests ……

  5. I was laughing when I wached this. Same as the many many many arguements since 1980s that China would fail in 5, 10, 15, 20… years…

  6. Wow another one again, the wishful thinking of many report what you know but don't tell what you don't even know. The U S always want others to say America America when the tune is changing now to China China oh no they are not good

  7. China just closed 25+ shipyards. They are in big trouble financially. Just goes to show you can't just print more & more money & expect it to strenghen an economy. No different than just adding water to cordial. It might go further but there is no sweetness.

  8. The commies are long past their use by date. Time the people of China experienced freedom and had control over their own destiny

  9. LOL. It's time some old folks get their head out of the 80s cold war. If China's communism is so bad, why have they been booming for the last 30 years ! And guess what , HUNDREDS Of millions of Chinese travel on holidays and what? They return!! China must be the cess pit you say for them to return!

  10. yes can we trade those that hate America. in fact if you want communism or socialism go to china you will be so much happier as they beat you into submission.hurry up and leave already.

  11. As a Chinese, I like Trump! he is not like the previous presidents. He puts everything on the table, He tells stupid lies, He cares business more than politics… I believe Xi and Putin… are supporting Trump under the table!

  16. China blows up Hong Kong’s economy and successfully makes it a country, then Hong Kong just decides to be like fck u, I don’t care bout i

  17. Why can't we just trade off these non supportive losers in our country with those patriots who love this country in Hong Kong ? Then we would have a whole country of happy Citizens.

  18. The Chinese people are so in need of political change. And being the most populous Nation could have a bloodless revolution and remove from power the communist dynasty and replace it with a new President who would like Our own Presdent Make China a great Nation. There are reports I'm hearing of people tired of the communist iron fist control that now half of our own country is headed toward stupidity is rampant here at home and if allowed to continue we will be in need of a revolution too, to remove those who subvert our freedom by willingly defying our federal laws.

  19. The Chinese socialist dictatorship declared war on Hong Kong when they broke their promise to allow the people of Hong Kong autonomy. China is afraid liberty will spread through the region like a row of falling dominoes.

  20. Let hope those communist sperms demise themselves so this planet earth free of communism. Time to liberate China from those communist sperms.

  21. Make sure you support American Made over Communist made and cheating overseas made. What's on your feet American Made or overseas made. Buy and support fair made and American Made.

  22. free hongkong, now hongkonger and taiwanese rising against communist china,dictator xi, we western stand with hker and twnese

  23. China has worst history of human rites. Be it
    – Tibet occipation and repression
    – Forced Occupation of South china sea by intimidating small neighbors.
    – Insurgencies and occupations in neighboring 20+ countries. Occupation of land from a tiny country Brunai is greed at its best.
    – Concentration camps for Weighers.
    – Now to come … Honk Kong, Attempts to occupy Taiwan
    – Next it claim Moon as per ancient maps of china.
    – Dumpings , Stealing, bribing is common feature in China trade with any xyz country.

    In all cases world looked other way. This enbolded china for next aggression. Thanks to US waking up.

  24. It would seem America has traded economic positions with China. America is growing its economy at 6%. While China economy is growing at 2%.

  25. We the people of America will not allow our sons and daughters to have to Die for a Bunch of unappreciative Chinese. Fight your own battles Hong Kong. My son's life is more important than you're wants ! Do it yourself and quit begging for the U.S. to help.

  26. How can trump win a trade war against a leader who is more like a king ???fox news is funny,hong Kong can easily be isolated and delt with and America can't do anything to China plus the hong Kong protest has nothing to do with the economy

  27. Floating Tariff rates now auto pegged to the Chinese yuan. As Yuan goes down, tariffs go up. No matter how much they manipulate their currency, they can't win.

  28. Hong Kong has officially entered a brutal police state right in front of our naked eyes. PLA forces have dressed in Hong kong police uniforms to execute their excessive brutality at will against unarmed Hong Kong young protesters.

  29. Trump is winning? The important thing is whether the people of Hong Kong are going to win this one. The people of Hong Kong have everything on the line. Varney needs to put his thinking cap on and consider what really matters.
