Cramer: Trump views Huawei as China’s ‘Achilles’ heel,' and Broadcom found that out the hard way

Cramer gets it right kind of...

Broadcom didn't underestimate they just couldn't do anything about it.

trump is resolved allright... resolved to get re-elected... he doesn't give a shit about what it does to economies... he'll sign a crap deal if he thinks it'll get him re-elected and win the adoration of people who still think he's rich*

Like most dictators what he craves is love, but since he can't feel love he substitutes adoration... but it doesn't fill the hole... so he craves ever more adoration.

Cramer's right though on this... trump's not going to listen to anyone. And we are still borrowing borrowing borrowing to keep up our wasteful lifestyles...
like Tuesday I was driving home from Encinitas on a two lane road... it was a beautiful 75° out. Virtually every car I saw in a huge traffic jam driving the opposite way had their windows rolled up and air conditioners going.

July 29th report and when the new lineup comes out are crucial.

If Apple under-reports badly I would imagine it'll mean big trouble for the markets overall and Apple especially.

Unless trump signs any kind of a deal, crap or not.

I think Tech is in a bubble... esp. sw. services - Google, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Uber... the valuations are crazy.... Uber a great example.

We will see, but I think Trump knows what must be done and sometimes medicine is painful. We can agree to disagree. I can hire fantastic Russian programmers @ $18/hr compared to so so US programmers for $200+/hr

That's interesting, I always assumed U.S. taxpayers picked up the entire bill for presidential inaugurations.

I've never believed Trump had anywhere near the wealth he claims to have. The fact he doesn't pay outstanding bills or delays doing so doesn't surprise me. Some wealthy people have a habit of doing that.

A local real estate magnate who built the tallest building in Seattle back in the 1980's, the Columbia Center, has a long history of not paying his bills. At one point in 2016 his company owed over $2 million to Seattle City Light. He's also been subject to many lawsuits for failure to pay construction bills.

Even the Weyerhauser Company has a corporate policy of not paying any bills before they're 90 days past due.

The fact Trump refuses to release his tax returns and gives nonsense excuses for not doing so proves he's hiding something.

> Trump knows...

Author from Forbes who followed trump for years disagrees. Amazing story. trump is not rich. He's a serial borrower. He fooled the author, Forbes and the banks. He actually called this guy and tried to impersonate someone else. Ponzi Donald I call him:

How did Donald Trump, a self-serving promoter who lost billions of dollars for his investors, convince the world that he is a financial genius?

His debt load explains why he was in Russia. Banks here caught on that he'd fooled them using loan money to convince them he had assets so they loaned him more. He's a serial borrower.

One thing I'll admit... he's the most successful swindler in US history. Absolutely tops.

Again my bet is, like with Mexico, he'll cut a bad deal so he can look good. It'll all be for naught.

Art of the Deal author on our economic warrior president:

I wrote ‘The Art of the Deal’ with Trump. His self-sabotage is rooted in his past.

I've been telling people trump is a sociopath for years, from the article:

Early on, I recognized that Trump’s sense of self-worth is forever at risk. When he feels aggrieved, he reacts impulsively and defensively, constructing a self-justifying story that doesn’t depend on facts and always directs the blame to others.


The Sociopath Next Door Paperback by Martha Stout

Stout has a PhD. trump fits the profile of a sociopath perfectly.

Invest accordingly. If trump can swing a deal markets will probably soar. That all depends on Xi though. No doubt Xi understands and has loads of info on trump. The markets alway teater on disaster. Markets go up gradually and down super fast.

We'll see. iPhones used to be status symbols among the Chinese elite... they WUV that gold thing...

I'm guessing, and its just a guess, that using an iPhone in a high level government or business meeting is no longer a good thing... and once that status thing is gone its gone...

I find it funny that there is any Chinese nationalism, other than the fake kind China's citizens have when forced to for appearance. I can only surmise that living under that kind of oppression and misinformation since birth means they don't know any different, so it's easier to believe their government knows best and that the West is decadent.

Since China's government has walled off the internet from the rest of the world, it's people have no source of news except that sanctioned by their government.

I can believe employees of the government or of companies with close ties to it would be in a bad position if they use iPhones, but that's pretty amazing if the population in general has suddenly turned on Apple as well because of the trade war and nationalism.

Not only China... sales are down all over Europe, non China Asia and in India - the 2nd largest market... Apple is virtually nom existant... Sales are low in S. America and falling in the US. Sales failures are most dramatic where Chinese phones are now competing with price and innovation. AAPL has nothing... neither is it talking about anything! Except video content... somrtime in the future.

I think that AAPL has already punted.... As the Chinese say... AAPL has a looser mentality.
