China want to start a war with America

China will lose in any trade war with US. US have done well from 1950-1990 without China market or China imports.

True, that time they won wars.
Europe had to pay back the US for services rendered.
The whole Europe was a bombed out shell.

But after Vietnam loss, bad times  came along fast.

IT IS TIME FOR ALL COUNTRIES TO REALIZE THAT GLOBALIZATION USING FREE TRADE (OR, TARIFF-FREE TRADE) HAS A TRAGIC FLAW - IT MINIMIZES THE WAGES PAID BY ALL TRADING PARTIES (MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS) IN ALL COUNTRIES, IN ORDER TO MAXIMIZE THEIR REVENUES AND THEIR PROFITS.  THIS WILL RESULT IN FISCAL DEFICITS, BALLOONING PRIVATE AND PUBLIC DEBTS, AND EVENTUAL COLLAPSE OF ALL ECONOMIES IF LEFT UNCORRECTED.  TRUMP IS CORRECTING THIS INHERENT FLAW IN GLOBALIZATION BY INSISTING ON THE NEED FOR THE U.S. TO IMPOSE TARIFFS ON IMPORTS THAT MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR AMERICAN FACTORIES TO COMPETE AGAINST THE CHEAP LABOR OR CHEAP MATERIALS USED TO PRODUCE SUCH IMPORTS BY FOREIGN COUNTRIES. TO EQUATE THIS REASONABLE DEMAND WITH WANTING TO WAGE A TRADE WAR IS DISINGENUOUS AT BEST, AND HYPOCRITICAL AT WORST, AND WILL LEAD TO A TRADE WAR INSTEAD OF A TRADE AGREEMENT ON A SCHEDULE OF TARIFFS EACH COUNTRY WILL BE ENTITLED TO IMPOSE ON THE EXPORTS OF THE OTHER COUNTRY IN ORDER FOR THEIR DOMESTIC INDUSTRIES AND WORKERS TO SURVIVE AND ACHIEVE A HIGHER STANDARD OF LIVING.  IF YOU WANT TO CALL A MUTUALLY AGREED SCHEDULE OF FAIR TRADE WITH TARIFFS AS A TRADE WAR, THEN SO BE IT, BUT IF YOU WANT TO CALL THIS A TRADE AGREEMENT ON FAIRNESS IN TRADE, THEN SO IT WILL BE ALSO.  BUT IF YOU ARE JUST BEING ADAMANT ON CONTINUING THE ROBBING OF AMERICAN JOBS IN THE NAME OF FREE TRADE, THEN TRUMP WILL SIMPLY IMPOSE THE TARIFFS ON THE PRODUCTS THAT NEED TO BE STOPPED FROM TAKING AWAY AMERICAN JOBS, AND CHINA CAN DO LIKEWISE, WITHOUT ANY MUTUAL AGREEMENT.  CALL IT A TRADE WAR, IT WILL HAVE TO HAPPEN IRREGARDLESS.  GREED MASQUERADING AS FREE TRADE WILL NOT WORK IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION.  IT WILL BE CUT OFF.
