One can only hope

Most of the US trade deficit in goods is due to US companies such as Apple, Dell, HP, etc. outsourcing the manufacturing of US products to developing countries such as China. Please don’t blame China for the greed of the US corporations who are guilty of outsourcing factory jobs to foreign countries so that they can reap tax-free profits from labor arbitrage which is booked to offshore tax havens.

That’s a US not China’s problem.

Outsourcing is one thing but forcing a company to manufacture in China in order to sell their products with out tariffs is another (i.e. cars). China is infamous for that.

Not at all, China needs a good excuse to retaliate US while Trump is providing such great opportunity. The US farmers already shhhiiitting over Trump's head. The breakout of the trade war is in favor of China, Trump starts the war that drags down the world economy and the final result will be that the US is cursed by the whole world even by her allies. China will gain further popularity in the world aspect.
Pleae put the tariff to work ASAP, China is starving for that.

“Manufacturing is a huge growth driver for all the countries in Asia, and it would take a huge hit in the event of a trade war,” says Tim Condon, chief Asia economist with ING in Singapore. Manufacturing is simply too important to the Chinese economy and it’s the front line affected in a trade war. It would be a terrible scenario.”
