White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly admitted that China had beaten the United States significantly on trade but that President Donald Trump was committed to changing the relationship.

“They’ve beat us pretty badly in terms of trade. That doesn’t make them an enemy. … They probably in many ways have been smarter in terms of business and trade,” Kelly said in an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham.


In 2016, the trade deficit with China was $309.6 billion. Kelly indicated that the Chinese were shrewd in their trade relationship with the United States but that the United States was to blame.


“Whose fault is that? I mean, that’s our fault,” Kelly said. “My hats off to them for taking advantage of whatever they’ve been able to take advantage of to have that trade relationship.”


Kelly said Trump was committed to changing the trade relationship with China but suggested that it would be through diplomatic efforts.

“President Trump is committed to changing that on a collegial basis,” he said.


Kelly said that the United States would continue a productive relationship with China, despite their differences.


He noted that although it was difficult for Americans to imagine life in a communist country, it was not up to the United States to “pass judgment” on the foreign regime.


“I think working with people no matter who they are is better than not talking to them,” Kelly said. “They have a system of government that has apparently worked for the Chinese people.”


Do John Kelly's views represent those of US government? Does it signify US' change of attitude towards China? Will Sino-US ties turn for the better?

Once they stop zipping around N/K it'll indicate a better relation ship.
Until then, nothing but another bla bla

The sooner the "pro-democrats" realise that each country has its own unique way of government, the better. There will be peace on earth. Arguing and fighting over political ideologies is really stupid and unnecessary. People are different and so prefer different lifestyles. There is no perfect system but there can be good governance. Good government should be the goal of all people. Kelly has wise up and I hope more people will too.

Here is the cardinal question:

What is China willing to do for U.S. Chinese trade? Remember to never ask what the other side can do for you... The Chinese are "shrewd", said Mr Kelly. That is not exactly a compliment. They should become smart and honest.

What Kelly says is correct and accurate.  Why do you assume that the Chinese are not honest? You are completely biased against China.  The Chinese system works for the Chinese  just as the USA system works for the USA but the Chinese will "call a spade a spade" rather then present their country as something it is not.  The Chinese do not have the credentials of being a nation of invaders.  Vietnam was the start of the USA invading other countries and calling it "the protectors of the free world".  Vietnam was the most significant invasion of the last century when you take into account the so called reason for the USA invading Vietnam and slaughtering millions of Vietnamese.  These are the facts despite what the USA will tell people about their protection of the so called "Free World"
