Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –
Steve Bannon is back.
Former President Donald J. Trump’s strategist and 2016 campaign CEO, had an inflammatory response on Wednesday to Wall Street’s concerns over Trump’s trade actions against China.
“Ask the working people in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan about Wall Street. Wall Street supported and cheered on the export of their jobs. To hell with Wall Street if they don’t like it. Its time somebody stood up to them and Donald Trump is the perfect guy. Wall Street is always short term. Trump is trying to protect the beating heart of American capitalism — our innovation,” he told Reuters in a telephone interview.
Bannon and the Trump Administration has public sparks weeks ago over comments Bannon allegedly made to the author of the partially debunked anti-Trump book, Fire and Fury. That was then.
“It’s full throwdown. Trump has planned this out for a long time. He led with the smart things, forced technology transfers. It’s obvious the Chinese have no real response to this. I think they played completely into his hands. By putting tariffs on agricultural products and avoiding addressing the technology questions they’ve shown once again they consider us nothing more than a tributary state,” per CNBC.
“This is the beating heart of American capitalism: Technology innovation that the Chinese have either stolen or forced American companies to turn over. Trump has signaled that those days are over,” Bannon said.
China has struck back with a similar level of tariffs to match those announced by the Trump administration. While the markets are clearly nervous, Trump’s team and some observers insist that the U.S. holds the cards, because China hold so much U.S. debt, and won’t want to lose access to our markets with their hundreds of billions in trade deficits.
After decades of complaints, but no real action, this president is acting. The markets are turbulent. Stay tuned for the outcome.
