China Voices Strength, Pushes Nationalism Around Trade War

By YANAN WANG and SAM McNEIL

BEIJING (AP) — What do tilapia, Jane Austen and Chinese revolutionary poster art have in common?

All have been used to rally public support around China’s position in its trade dispute with the U.S., as the ruling Communist Party takes a more aggressive approach — projecting stability and stirring up nationalistic sentiment in the process.

“If you want to negotiate, the door is open,” anchor Kang Hui said Monday on state broadcaster CCTV. “If you want a trade war,” however, he added, “we’ll fight you until the end.”

“After 5,000 years of wind and rain, what hasn’t the Chinese nation weathered?” Kang said.

The toughly-worded monologue on the banner evening news program followed days of muted official responses to President Donald Trump’s decision to hike tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports. Trump startled financial markets with his May 5 announcement that U.S. tariffs would rise to 25% from 10% as of Friday.

3. NPC sayz OrangeManBad...

He does nothing to help farmers then he's raping them because of evil capatalism. NPC will campaign on that for 2020.

He tries to help farmers and it's wealth distribution due to "lost market outlets."

The only intelligent thing to do is ignore NPC.

2. The trade war is obviously having a negative effect on the Chinese economy

It it was not the Chinese gov't would not resort to a national battle cry. After all, who attempts to inspire the masses over nothing?
