Good. They can dump all they want. Makes no difference they will start paying their share of tarifs or they can sell their cheap shit to someone else.

Pay their fair share of tariffs? You sound as dumb as Trump. From what I understand this will negatively effect the dollar.

Yes this is called consumer confidence. It means citizens are willing to incur debt because they are confident that the economy will hold strong during this presidency. It is a good thing especially when paired with the jobs report showing massive increases in hourly wages (over $27/hr national average) with higher employment numbers than we have seen in my entire life. To try to spin this as negative is laughable at best.

The US can get allies to buy them or agree mutual buys with Japan, the EU. It would be better to make any treasuries sold to China invalid so they lose their money. It could precipitate a crisis there.

We already know the US can't be trusted when it comes to agreements so making US Treasury Bonds worthless as well would just be the cherry on top of the mouldy cake.

this is a chicken and egg thing these people are misleading. the debt grew due to increased prime rate anyone know what 2% on 20 trillion is...... and the only reason prime went up is because the economy is growing and they wanted to slow it down. government income from taxes is up 60 billion. this is due to increased spending in the private sector not government spending
