At Some Point In Time You Have To Pay For the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ To Protect You! Our President Is Doing Exactly That With Current & Future Trade Deals………..

I read a story recently that our President was approached by Robert Lighthizer in terms of ongoing negotiations with South Korea πŸ‡°πŸ‡·. He shared that the South Koreans are asking for an additional 30 days. He wanted to agree to it. Our President told him that you tell them that the President is ready to kill the deal today and there is nothing he can do to change his mine. Our President then said to Lighthizer that the 30 days was what he would consider fair but that we never show our hand in negotiations.

You could see it got across to Robert! He was stern in his tone and eager to get going with these five countries our President is visiting in Asia. He recapped the trade deficit with four of the five countries we currently have. The Philippines πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­ was basically neutral. The others are as follows:

Japan πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅- $65 Billion
South Korea πŸ‡°πŸ‡· – $27 Billion
China πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ – $350 Billion
Vietnam πŸ‡»πŸ‡³- $32 Billion

These four countries alone account for $474 Billion dollars πŸ’΅! Let that sink in for just a minute. Are you kidding me! If it wasn’t for us, Japan πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ and South Korea πŸ‡°πŸ‡· would be in a world of hurt given what is going on with North Korea πŸ‡°πŸ‡΅. However, because we have 30K+ soldiers in South Korea πŸ‡°πŸ‡· and 50K+ soldiers in Japan πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅, they get to sleep well at night.

Our President is finally putting our country FIRST! If you want your people to sleep well at night, you are going to have to pay πŸ’° for it!

Japan πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ has gotten the message loud and clear. They were one of the first to do right by our President in early February. President Abe is a very smart businessman. Not only does he want to remove the trade deficit but he wants our two countries to work together in new ventures that will bring in billions upon billions of dollars πŸ’΅ for each. Wonder why they and their spouses get along. Their also spending on their military defense which has skyrocketed this year. Guess what country they are buying from.

From the article linked above:

Japan, which has a consistent trade surplus with the U.S., is putting the finishing touches on a package that it claims will create 700,000 jobs in the U.S. and help create a $450-billion market, Reuters reported, citing government sources familiar with the plans.

On a broader basis, the two countries would cooperate in building liquefied natural gas facilities in Asia to help expand exports of U.S. natural gas and work together to expand nuclear energy-related sales.

The aim appears to be to turn what could potentially be a major crisis over trade friction into a business opportunity for both sides.

Abe’s proposed public-private initiative is intended to create several hundred thousand jobs, the reports said Thursday, and involve $150 billion in new investment in U.S. infrastructure from Japanese government and private sources over the next decade.

South Korea πŸ‡°πŸ‡· thought a $25 Billion dollar πŸ’΅ deal for our LNG would do the trick. Our President told them hell no.

From the article linked above:

β€œI was gratified to learn about the new investments South Korean companies are making in the United States. This month Cheniere is sending its first shipment of American liquefied natural gas to South Korea in a deal worth more than $25 billion,” Trump said during a speech at the White House.

Our President sent out a tweet following the visit saying basically there is a lot more he expects:

Vietnam πŸ‡»πŸ‡³ on the Prime Minister’s visit to the WH earlier this year agreed to purchase U.S. products from us to the tune of $15 Billion dollars πŸ’΅. A good first step but not enough.

From the article linked above:

U.S. President Donald Trump talked trade with Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc during a White House visit on Wednesday and welcomed the signing of business deals worth billions of dollars and the jobs they would create.

The U.S. Commerce Department announced 13 new transactions with Vietnam worth $8 billion, including $3 billion worth of U.S.-produced content that would support more than 23,000 American jobs.

These include deals for General Electric Co (GE.N) worth $5.58 billion for power generation, aircraft engines and services, its largest-ever combined sale in Vietnam.

β€œThey (Vietnam) just made a very large order in the United States – and we appreciate that – for many billions of dollars, which means jobs for the United States and great, great equipment for Vietnam,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

The Commerce Department estimate of the deals was considerably less than the $15 billion figure given by Phuc during a speech at the Heritage Foundation, adding that most of the total involved the import of U.S. equipment.
