well, suppose you are in Trump's shoes what will you do? just sit there and do nothing? Trump need ...

Maybe discard the "winner takes all" for instance, and cooperate?

"One of the main problems is the US attempting to mix a whole bunch of non-trade specific issues such as intellectual property law and sovereign laws on ownership etc into a single 'free trade agreement.

This is why this is an impossible agreement to close out.  Using it as a coercive instrument and applying unilateral blanket tariffs is, frankly speaking, akin to an act of war (and economic wars procede real shooting wars).

One would have thought that leading countries like the US would have learnt their lesson after the policy mistakes leveled at Germany in relation to unrealistic war reparations after WWI that had sowed the seeds of WWII.

China as a nation has been doing its level best to bring over a billion people out of poverty and its ability to transform an unproductive poor economy into a much better performing economy over a relatively short time period via market reforms is to be commended not bashed. To expect China to catch up to US market ideals in one fell swoop displays poor judgement. "

what do you mean by cooperate ? could you be more specific? what about currency manipulation? and  ...

Not as au courant as you are supposed to be.  currency manipulation? Even the US finds it too far-fetched now to accuse China of it. The US is the one that fleeces every country in the world, including Canada with the greenback, but only very brilliant people could see through that US dirty trick. Government subsidies? Ask the US again how they inject tons of funds into certain economic sectors to tide them over in the face of competition from Europe and Asia.
You are trying to be funny, aren't you?
Believe it or not, it's true.
