Except. It didn’t happen. John Oliver, who is sometimes good. Is often wrong on things trump. Mainly because trump is a Cretan and Oliver a Democrat can’t even begin to deal with trump in a logical way

John, just because you live in America doesn't mean you have to pronounce aluminium incorrectly.
Aluminium. Not Aloominum. Fucks sake,

Although I agree with everything said in this video, especially the fact that Trump is a complete moron, I've never heard any solution about how to tackle China coming from the Left. What is Bernie's solution, Biden's, Yang's? You sporadically hear how we have to talk and negotiate with China but we've done that for the last 20 years and that's what got us where we are now. I am to dumb to even suggest a solution but the Democrats should have an answer, even if its not a solution they should at least pretend they have it.

*Trump is INCAPABLE of having a “good plan” about ANYTHING!* *Look at his time in the White House! Everything he touches turns to shit!*

Americans use Chinese made shampoo and instant coffee? That's fucking disgusting.

Yes, Trump organization HAS been in human trafficking business.
Maybe the wall should be built to increase Trump's income in that trade area...

Defending Soybean farmers is kind of tough, even for a condescending clown like Oliver. Maybe he hasn't heard that bean farming in the US may be the most environmentally practice we have going, and that's saying something. We cry about global warming but not chemical fertilizers, toxic pesticides, diesel fuel. So TRADE!!! OMG. Democrats ought to at least try to think a little bit before they speak.

I have a HUGE trade deficit with the Safeway grocery store. I buy $200 - $300 in goods from them nearly every week and they have never purchased anything from me. So I lose ten to fifteen thousand dollars every year to them?

"Israel and Facebook have agreed to set up joint teams to reach an agreement on how to fight online incitement.
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked and Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan met Monday morning with senior Facebook officials in an effort to jointly stem online incitement that Israel claims leads to terror activities."

I love how liberals all of a sudden became pro-free trade upon the advent of Trump. Where were you people for the past 2 decades?

Oliver's a shill for corporate interests. His paycheck comes from the people who lose money from tariffs. This clip is so misleading. The proposed tariff's wouldn't apply to BMW's built in US. Oliver is a comedian with no actual understanding of economics. Maybe Trump is wrong, but I wouldn't get my advice on that from a comedian.

This is what happens when you neglect the educational system for decades and don't provide the resources teachers need, an unbelievably stupid president elected by an equally moronic electorate.

Look, China IS a communist country! However, US manufacturers have embraced it. I feel Trump wishes to transport our foreign manufacturing companies to Russia.

A comedian thinks he knows more about trade than an international businessman. Not even a funny comedian either the businessman is actually wittier.

How is America going to have a functioning economy if we're imposing tariffs in a trade war with boomers as our economists.

The whole purpose of the Filibuster and the 60% vote was to keep both sides of the aisle talking and negotiating. When the Democrats had the majority of the Senate, they pulled the "nuclear option" (eliminated the 60% requirement). Now, at the minority, they have virtually no say in Senate by their own doing. The are in the minority in every branch of government except the lower house of Congress (House of Representatives), yet they continue to attempt to eliminate procedures which protect the minority party. They really have no idea how any of this works...

What a total nonsens about this movie chinese trade war. The thruth is, greed was the driver. US Jobs needed to be tranfered to the east or south, bcz wages were much lower than in the US. And working Slaves are available ad much you want. The cinese didn't put the pistol on the heads of all those company owners. No, pure greed was the driver for this sell out of labour jobs. And with it all the knowledge has been gone as well. Now to blame the chinese for it is just not the thruth. For sure, they steal inellectual properties, or manufacturing cheep copies of trade mark goods, but at the end it is also the west who buys theese goods. Or is it wrong. Our political and business elite sold out everything, as the whole System is rigged. Its a giant self serving mentality. And what you think at the really end, what is waiting for you??!! I tell you what, a riffel. That you able go and kill all those bad enemies of the US. But think oncr about, what thr US does to the whole world - surveillance, industrie spionage, overthrowing foreign ellected governments. Better be calm, and find a way to get rid off your President and leaders. Just image if you would use all your cash you invest in military and wars into something good. You would have parnters and friends. Not enemies - would that be so bad?

Actually, Melania and Ivanka a scheming to have 45 silently assassinated and replaced by Alex Balwin. Asked if they were prepared to "go all the way" with Balwin, the co-conspirators both said in unison " why not? It would be better than what we are doing now."

Embassed America you should be. This dick head president is so fucking dumb and unbelievably ignorant of fucking everything. Prepare for a depression.

12 months later and the economy is fine. People have jobs.The Chinese are at the bargaining table and the US is still the greatest economic power. And of course John Oliver still has a kingsize dose of TDS. Sounds like a Tuesday to me.

Now your trade deficit is at $889 billion a year. And rising by a thousand dollars every few seconds. You will be paying for Trump for a long time, and in more ways than you may be aware of.
