US equity futures tumble as Trump threatens to restart China trade war

As global financial markets remained closed owing to May 1 celebration, US equity futures dipped as President Trump threatened to block a govt retirement fund from investing in Chinese stocks and warned of additional new tariffs on China over the Covid-19 crisis. The President on Thurs said that his trade deal with China was now of secondary importance to the pandemic.

Good trump, amazing Trump. This is the best trump. Massive tariffs on China means manufacturing can come back and be competitive again.

China needs to be penalized for everything they've done. Let's not forget about Hong Kong or the Uihgers either. The human rights violations and invasions into the south China Sea, plus their communist authoritarian government is everything the west should be against. Let's kick them when they're down and turn them back into a 3rd rate power.

China is a pirate state. They cheat, lie, steal, etc. They should be banned or conquered before they take over the world, I doubt it would be a better place undr their influence. According to the scientist (Luc Montagnier) who first discovered HIV, this covid-19 virus is man-made. I have seen a few of his interviews and in a couple of them he clearly said China created the virus. He is all over the news, local and international, stating his findings.

*Equity* futures? Fuck you for even using that word. It's beyond offensive.

The majority of our medical equipment is manufactured in China which is why it’s been so hard to keep up with demand. Bring back American manufacturing for American jobs. America First!

So great to see those who support riots in other countries to have Trump in their own.
