♪♪ CHARLES: HOW ARE INSIDERS WITH THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION RING AING TO THE PRESIDENT’S NEW RANT THIS MORNING ON CHINA? MORE OR LESS REALLY AGAINST AMERICAN COMPANIES. I WANT TO BRING IN EXCLUSIVELY HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT SECRETARY BEN CARSON. SECRETARY CARSON, THANKS FOR JOINING US.>>ABSOLUTELY. CHARLES: EVERYONE KNOWS PRESIDENT TRUMP IS UPSET WITH THE FED AND ALSO UPSET WITH THIS RELATIONSHIP WITH CHINA. THEIR RETALIATION THIS MORNING OBVIOUSLY ANGERED THE PRESIDENT EVEN MORE BUT MANY ARE SAYING THE PRESIDENT CAN’T ORDER AMERICAN BUSINESSES WHAT TO DO. HE CAN ASK THEM, CAN REQUEST, EVEN USE THE OLIVE BRANCH FROM HERE TO THERE, WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF WHAT HAPPENED THIS MORNING WITH THESE SERIES OF TWEETS?>>WELL YOU KNOW, THE RELATIONSHIP WITH CHINA IS A VERY, VERY LONG AND COMPLEX ONE AND, YOU KNOW, SOMETHING HAS BEEN NECESSARY FOR A LONG TIME. IT IS FINALLY BEING DONE. I THINK WE JUST HAVE TO KIND OF LEAVE HIM TO, YOU KNOW HIS AREA OF EXPERTISE AND THAT’S NEGOTIATING. IT IS GOING TO BE TOUGH THOUGH. CHARLES: NO, IT IS GOING TO BE TOUGH BUT TO BE QUITE FRANK WITH YOU, I THINK WE’RE WINNING THIS THING. THE ECONOMIC DATA PROVES WE’RE WINNING IT. BUT WE ULTIMATELY WANT TO WIN IT. AMERICAN BUSINESSES ARE MOVING OUT AT FASTER PACE THAN EVERY EXPERT SAID WAS POSSIBLE A YEAR AGO. I THINK IT IS RIGHT TO SHAME THEM SENDING JOBS OVERSEAS ABOUT BUT WHEN YOU START TO SAY I WILL ORDER COMPANIES TO DO ANYTHING THE PUBLIC GETS WORRIED. CERTAINLY THE MARKET DOWN 570 POINTS, THE MARKET IS DOWN, AND DO YOU THINK THERE IS ANY WAY TO MITIGATE THAT TYPE OF LANGUAGE?>>PEOPLE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE SOMETIMES THINGS COME OUT OF PEOPLE’S MOUTHS IN WAYS THAT THEY DIDN’T NECESSARILY INTEND. YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT REALLY WHAT IS THE INTENT HERE. AGAIN THE INTENT HERE IS TO RECTIFY THIS INCREDIBLY LOPSIDED RELATIONSHIP THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A VERY LONG PERIOD OF TIME. CHARLES: ABSOLUTELY. INCLUDING THE FENTANYL ASPECT THAT CHINA SAID THEY WOULD STOP LAST JULY. THEY HAVE NOT STOPPED AT ALL. I DO WANT TO SWITCH GEARS. YOU ARE WORKING ON SOMETHING MONUMENTAL. YOU’RE PROPOSING A RULE CHANGE THAT YOU SAY IS GOING TO PROMOTE THE PRODUCTION OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING. REALLY VIA HALTING DISCRIMINATION. I WANT YOU TO EXPLAIN TO THE AUDIENCE HOW THIS WORKS. THIS IS THE DESPERATE IMPACT RULE, RIGHT?>>RIGHT. AND SIMPLY MEANS THAT YOU KNOW, IF A RULE OR A POLLY HAS BEEN PUT IN PLACE, AND UNINTENTIONALLY NEGATIVELY IMPACTS ONE OF THE PROTECTS CLASSES THEN YOU HAVE A DISPARATE IMPACT SITUATION. THE PROBLEM IS IT IS OVERLY BROAD. WE ARE 100% BEHIND GETTING RID OF DISCRIMINATION AND ANY DISCRIMINATION, DISCRIMINATORY POLICIES HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED BY OUR AGGRESSIVE PURSUIT OF FACEBOOK, OF DISABILITIES PROBLEMS IN LOS ANGELES, WHAT IS GOING ON IN SAN FRANCISCO. WE’RE NOT GOING TO LET ANY OF THIS STUFF GET BY BUT WE DON’T WANT A SITUATION THAT IS SO COMPLEX THAT ONLY PEOPLE THAT BENEFIT ARE LAWYERS WHO SUE EVERYBODY FOR EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN. CHARLES: RIGHT.>>AND SO, A GOOD EXAMPLE WOULD BE IF CONGRESS WERE TO RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE TO $15 AN HOUR. THE PEOPLE WHO WOULD DISPROPORTIONATELY BE IMPACTED ARE LOW-SKILLED PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT GOING TO GET THOSE JOBS. CHARLES: SURE.>>MAJORITY OF THEM OR A LOT OF THEM ARE MINORITIES. SO MINORITIES COULD BRING A SUIT AGAINST CONGRESS SAYING, YOU KNOW, DISPARATE IMPACT HAS BEEN INVOKED. THAT IS THE KIND OF THING WE’RE TRYING TO GET RID OF. WE’RE TRYING TO PROVIDE CLARITY. I THINK THAT WILL HELP BOTH PLAINTIFFS AND DEFENDANTS, ONLY PEOPLE WHO REALLY WON’T BE HELPED ARE THE LAWYERS WHO SAY, YES, MORE SUITS. CHARLES: ALL RIGHT.

100 thoughts on “Ben Carson on US-China trade, says Trump is a great negotiator”

  1. Two great Americans both succeeded in life, making the American Dream a reality. As a white old American citizen born overseas , if they ever read this i would like to let them know : Americans like you made me come to US,and become a proud thankful American citizen.

  2. China is increasing all their prices immediately by 30% on all Chinese goods destined for the US.
    Merry Christmas

  3. Dr.(sic) Carson is the biggest boot lickin Uncle Tom in history. Give him a plate and napkin and he'd wait on tRUMP while he eats his Kentucky Fried chicken just to say he was a part of a presidential administration. His family must be so very proud.

  4. Reading the comments is always entertaining. Let's be fair and say that the people in the Trump administration are very successful and most likely all millionaires if not billionaires. Meaning they have a sense about them people who live pay check to pay check don't. Even the news casting are still paid employees but somehow so many think they can way in on matters 1. They do not know all the factors on and 2. Are clueless to basic economic principles that are the working pieces to economic success. Even many in congress have know clue which is why our government is in trillions of dollars of debt.

  5. After we finish assimilating the population of Central and South America into the US, we will have plenty of cheap labor here at home to replace cheap labor in China… which isn't so cheap anymore.

  6. unscrew what he said. trump is not upset with feds. he reported what the feds are doing which is causing upset..

  7. China taking US money and stealing intellectual property so they can build up their military and share with Russia and take over the world.

  8. He largely spends his days as president in unstructured “executive time” where he fields
    calls from outside advisers and ingests massive quantities of raw Fox
    News coverage. The work of solving the nation’s problems, except insofar
    as it rallies his supporters and keeps him in office, is a largely
    secondary concern. Soon after Trump took office, White House aides tried
    to persuade him that the national debt would become unsustainable in
    the future. “Yeah, but I won’t be here,” he reportedly replied.

  9. hard to believe this guy was a brain surgeon wow, wonder if Trump will follow his own advice since all the mega hats, flags and everything else used at his rallies are all made in China. Some of his clothing line is still made in China as well

  10. Only this president had the balls to stand up against China's unfair trade practices. We need him to continue to battle for america. Vote Trump 2020!!!

  11. China is a communist country with a nuclear arsenal. China has been stealing our ideas for decades. China is determined to rule the world. But China would still be a primitive society living on rice and fish if it didn't have America as its biggest customer. Time to bring back our corporations and jobs and put China in its place. And tariffs are the way to do it. The more tariffs, the better.

  12. If you move five steps forward and then move one step backward to avoid an open man-hole… you are not going "backwards". Trump's economy remains far, far ahead of where it would have been had Clinton won, with the lowest unemployment and highest growth in nearly 50 years, and we continue to live in a free country with the first and second amendments intact to boot.

  13. What Trump is doing with China should have been done eons ago but they did not have smarts or balls to challenge China now we have a president that does.

  14. Right, just to clear up one thing

    China has not and does not 'steal' intellectual property from the united states or any other western power.

    This is a fear mongering myth perpetuated by the right wing and a lot of corporate democrats

    Decades ago when the US began trade negotiations involving using very cheap Chinese labour to manufacture its goods it did so by incentivising China to agree by offering rights to intellectual property in return.

    The US stood to make a killing by importing super cheap goods which allowed its consumers to buy more stuff. Thereby more than offsetting any harm lost due to loss of manufacturing jobs overseas.
    China agreed to these terms with the understanding that it could also use intellectual property of the goods that they were making with their sweat and low wages!!

    Just know whenever you hear talk of China 'stealing' intellectual property it is grossly misleading

  15. Trump did not "order" anyone. He said (translated)…I will retaliate against China. You are hereby WARNED that you will suffer if you stay in China and sell your goods to the USA. so save yourselves by either moving back to USA or set up shop away from China. "Ordered" is a trumpian term to get China's attention. Just remember old joke.."Why did the farmer hit his mule with a 2×4?…to get his attention". Let the president work and watch what happens.

  16. "Trade war" is for political speculation rather than economical necessity. If Trump had not started it, China would have bought much from US. It is Trump who hurts American farmers and consumers for his political fantasy

  17. Trump is a idiot. He is gutting farmers and erasing many many years of work to establish trade partnerships. These guys have no idea. And anyone who supports Trump cannot be considered smart or informed.

  18. In the meantime idiots walk around wearing MAGA hats. MADE IN CHINA. Guess most trump supporters cant read so it may explain the hypocrisy

  19. When Trump speaks everyone listen's, by now you would think people could look between the lines and not freak out over every word! What will you do and say if things get real and tuff ?

  20. This black-man sheriff and his black Africa Obama inmate population are WAGING WAR on the USS North America. They want an ALL black crew. MUTANY ! …..The Black-man is a PIMP and the Black woman is his Beach ! Who are these men married too ? Where did these men come from ?

  21. All
    tax money just pays interest to debt created by criminal banking
    cartel that was started in 1913 by the Federal (Private) Reserve
    (There are no Reserves) Private Banking Cartel (Unconstitutional for
    exactly this reason) so they could Enslave us with phony dept . THE
    DEBT was created with deception and unconstitutionally so WE DO NOT
    OWE IT. TRUMP should KEEP CUTTING taxes till there are NONE,
    especially on individuals which even more hideous than on
    corporations. This is a ignorant unconstitutional , controlling
    burden on all countries and their people that nerve stops expanding
    and making all economic problems larger and just last longer than
    they would normally be. This is exactly why they created it. Read THE
    CREATURE FROM JEKYLL ISLAND to learn how the criminals lied to the
    american people and their government and even killed and black mailed
    countless to start this deceptive criminal process . I believe the
    book is even FREE to download to PC in some places so please check it
    out it is full of facts , documents and photos and is a easy read.

  22. Ben really looks like he's busy with
    all the construction projects. You
    Know, drawings, specs, bids.
    Ya right if he ever saw a print
    he'd probably Try to turn to the
    Comics.

  23. Just who you want trumpeting your business savvy …. Ben Knumbskull Carson.
    Trump's done. He's way behind in the polls, His approval rating is well below 50%. No President has ever won re-election with an approval rating south of 50%. None.
    The GOP leadership will move on Trump in the next 60 days. They need a good year to gain momentum behind a new candidate.
    Trump knows all this; all part of why he's been going off the rails of late. The walls are closing in.
    That's just the way it is.

  24. Dr.Carson is my favorite member of the Trump Team. His quiet competence . relaxed thoughtful way of communicating and obvious enthusiasm for his job , make me believe that he can make a Department, that hasn't worked since it was created, finally produce useful helpful and effective resultes. He is a great man.

  25. Yeah he puts America first to go bankrupt all the while his income keeps growing from making deals with foreign entities why do you think he doesn't want to release his taxes it's because he never paid them.

  26. Most people do not understand how great Trump is for his country. The brainless democrats together with CNN and MSNBC are damaging the country.

  27. Dude is wearing one ☝️ crazy red suit there. And Ben Carson is a doctor so shouldn’t he be surgeon general???????

  28. PEOPLE WHO HATE TRUMP. ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION . WOULD YOU LIKE A COMMUNIST COUNTRY THAT IS MORE POWERFUL AND RICHER THAN AMERICA ONE DAY ? THATS ALREADY HAPPENING. AMERICANS NEED TO WAKE UP !!!
    AMERICA FINANCED THE RISE AND WEALTH OF CHINA. NOW CHINA HAS MORE MONEY THAN AMERICA. AFTER OUR POLITICIANS SOLD OUR PROSPERITY TO CHINA. NOW CHINA WILL SURPASS AMERICA MILITARILY AND TECHNOLOGICALLY.

  29. China has been stealing from all trade partners, including their communist partner Russia, the Chinese have stolen a lot of military technology from the USA and Europe.
    The new fifth generation tech for airplanes has been through espionage and commercial extortion. The chines are good a5 copying , not good at doing their own original thinking. Americans have been derelict protecting industrial and military technologies from the Chinese hordes.

  30. The company I retired from and they moved out of China in 2018. Trump is right to recommend CEO's to consider moving. By the way the Dow is 7000 point higher right now than any time Obama was in office. Humm!

  31. Blind Republican's exemplify brainwashing. You are both fools. Look at our markets, they are dying because of Trump.

  32. So y'all are just going to ignore that Trump bought all his building steel from China, and all those maga hats & Trump clothes are made in China too?

  33. God bless Dr Carson you are the answer for the truth, people need President Trump Pence and you to destroyed evil

  34. If you raise the minimum to $15 how would that impact us that have worked for years to get paid above minimum? Will that not affect the price of living therefore affect the middle class?

  35. Seriously. Tariffs are an indirect tax on us, Americans. I know that there are tons of Trump supporters here but at some point please be objective. Take a step back and tell me if your household can take a 20% increase in all of the items around your home. YOU will pay for Chinese tariffs not China.

  36. American people buying cheap Chinese products, look at what it has cost us in the long run, jobs and lives, everything these people touch seems to be either stolen or poisoned. Put your money where your mouth is, are you in support of communism? Cause that is what your money is supporting.

  37. So let's hope Moscow Mitch McConnell sets the example Trump wants by having his wife shut down her Chinese transport businesses right away.

  38. I read somewhere Carson has an IQ of OVER 5000. So, everything he says is the bigliest and bestest words. The US don't need to trade with anyone. We can make our MAGA-hats at home – it will lead to billions of new jobs, so people now can have three jobs!

    And Carson really cares about the people by not working for higher wages. That's real Christian compassion

  39. “Great negotiator” 😂 Ben Carson is such a shill. Trump is running this country into the ground and only a spineless shill like Ben Carson or one of Trump’s dumb worshippers would say otherwise

  40. Of course Trump is a "great negotiator" he negotiated himself out of 6 bankruptcies. Trump is honest and never lies and he always treats women with dignity and respect and believes that all men and women are created equal and that no one is above the law no matter how rich and powerful. Now would you like to buy a bridge in Brooklyn to go along with that turd sandwich you're eating? lol

  41. Great job you are doing *President Trump, please keep America Great!!! From one u.s. citizen and Marine Corps veteran, I thank you, Sir. *2020

  42. Did you know most of the clothing, shoes and watches and tech products are mostly product of China? So is he asking people of USA to wear their birthday suits in USA????

  43. Do Trump and gentle Ben followers know that China is not actually writing us a check for tariffs. For example The Dollar Tree pays the Tarriffs at the Port of Los Angels when they pick up their Made in China stuff. The President continues to say China writes the checks. It’s American companies who write the checks
