|Foxconn claims it can make all of Apple's iPhones outside China|
Xi will have to make a deal because companies who are leaving in trickles will flee like mice on a sinking ship.
China thought it was going to continue to sell its junk to us while we sit back and let them rip us off from stem to stern. Now was the time to make a deal in our interest. Low inflation, low interest rates, and full employment. If Xi saw 1 million people protesting in Hong Kong as a threat what do you think will happen when 1/2 billion people can't put food on the table. A deal is coming and Trump will easily be re-elected.

|here handyman... escalating tensions between China and Taiwan. China believes Taiwan is theres and is saying loud and proud they will take it back... with force if necssary... Educate yourself... this article is a week old|
Tensions between Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China (PRC) are surging to an alarming extent. The latest indicator is the recent exchange of heated rhetoric between Gen. Wei Fenghe, China’s Minister of National Defense, and Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council, the Taiwanese government’s chief policymaking body dealing with cross-strait relations. As Taiwan’s self-proclaimed protector, Washington should be extremely worried about these developments.
Speaking on June 1 at the Shangri-La Dialogue, an annual multilateral conference on Pacific security issues, Wei warned against efforts either in Taiwan or foreign countries to thwart China’s goal of reunification. Moreover, “any underestimation of the PLA’s resolve and will is extremely dangerous.” Wei added ominously that, “If anyone dares to split Taiwan from China, the Chinese military will have no choice but to fight at all costs, at all costs, (sic.) for national unity. If the PLA cannot even safeguard the unity of our motherland, what do we need it for?”
The Mainland Affairs Council responded with equally harsh and uncompromising language. In a statement issued the following day, the council reasserted that Taiwan has never been a part of the PRC and would never accept Beijing’s control or threats. It accused China not only of “challenging international norms and order,” but added the gratuitous slap that Beijing’s claim to seek peaceful development was “a lie of the ages.” Lest anyone not fully grasp the extent of Taipei’s hostility toward the PRC, the statement went on: “We need to remind the public that the Chinese Communist Party is practicing anti-democracy, anti-peace between the two sides of the strait and further resorting to war. This is the main cause of the tension in the Taiwan Strait and the region, and it is the source of danger and provocation against peace and stability.”
There are multiple signs from various sources of growing U.S. backing for Taiwan’s de facto independence. Congress certainly is stepping up its support. By a unanimous voice vote in early May, the House of Representatives passed the Taiwan Assurance Act, which expresses firm support for Taiwan while urging Taipei to increase its own defense spending. The legislation also recommends that Washington continue “regular sales of defense articles” to Taiwan and back Taipei’s participation in international organizations—something Beijing emphatically resists.

|Give em time...|
They've taken over so many market items...
They're contenders in the supercomputer and AA spaces...
They graduate far more STEM people...
Developers will go with them... especially as it'll be easy to port Android to China Android. In any case, Apple as a status item among Chinese is a dead duck. Its over. Nobody with any power in China wants to be seen using an iPhone. The Chinese have a lot of incentive at this point to pay developers to work on their own OS and to subsidize 5G development where arguably they already have the advantage.
> sell only to China and other countries that don't care about security
That would be
China - 1.4 billion
India 1.35 billion
Indonesia 268 million
Pakistan 204 million
Heuwai is doing fine in Europe... much to trumps chagrin.
Not a bad niche to be in.
> The Chinese government doesn't care how much the trade ward affects their people because it doesn't care about them. Unlike the U.S., they don't have to.
The US doesn't have to care about its people... they just have to convince them they are the lesser of two evils. Look back at history... the government protects the rich and powerful not working people.
