There are no winners in trade wars says Xi

China's President Xi Jinping has told the World Economic Forum that there are no winners when nations engage in a trade war.

Mr Xi also told delegates in Davos, Switzerland, that there was "no point" in blaming economic globalisation for the world's problems.

He said financial crises were caused by the excessive pursuit of profits.

His comments are being read as a rebuke to US President-elect Donald Trump, who has promised a protectionist approach.

1. Seems to me Trump is far more interesting in America's problems

Than problems globally.

2. Xi

Sounds like Xi wants his own protectionist approach of maintaining status quo. I'm sure he has Americas best interests at heart.

4. We've been IN a trade war for a long time now. Problem is

it's been a one sided war that the US has just let others beat up on us without striking back. We've been taking it on the chin for many years now. That STOPS now.
