    1. During an exclusive interview with FOX Business in June, Donald Trump stepped up pressure on China before meeting with Xi at the G20 Osaka summit: “When tariffs go on in China we are taking in billions and billions of dollars — we never took in 10 cents — now you have another $325 billion that I haven’t taxed yet — it’s ripe for taxing — for putting tariffs on.”

    2. Like a robber waving a knife above his victim's head, Trump threatens to impose "very substantial" additional tariffs if no deal is reached. It is unthinkable for someone, who is bent on destroying China, not to impose more tariffs on more Chinese goods at once so as to finish it off swiftly and without mercy.

    The US has obviously fallen victim to its own tariff folly otherwise Trump won't keep phoning to Xi for trade deals. Tariffs have hurt the economies of China and the US as well as the rest of the world. It is analogous to a suicide bombing in a market, killing everybody including the terrorist himself, his family and friends.

    3. Whenever Trump calls on Xi for trade talks, he is finding out whether China is "ripe" for acceding to his demands. It is analogous to a psycho trying to find out whether his victim is ready to be dragged to the torture chamber to get all the teeth extracted after administering a dose of dental anesthetic.

    How can you negotiate with somebody who rules out any 50-50 deal? Hence it is high time for the victim to drag the psycho to the dental chair too. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. :)
