Oh for the love of God, ALL countries devalue their currency on purpose to boost their exports. Why is China the only bad guy here? Can't wait for the American economy to crash again so we can see Washington D.C. cry.

FUCK YOU, JOHN OLIVER, for hating e-scooters! E-scooters are THE BEST. We should ALL use them in the city instead of cars, subways, buses, trams and other SHITTY polluting or crowded mean of transportation. FUCK YOU AGAIN, John Oliver, for hating e-scooters! The only thing better than an e-scooter is an e-bike (or a regular bike).

Mr. Oliver, if the build BMWs in the US those won't be subject to tariffs, it's the ones that are built outside of the US that (or the USMCA) that would be subject to tariffs. FFS!

The fact of the matter; Americans allowed Trump, in office. He is a would-be dictator that hides behind our Democracy. It was Clinton that did Americans the most damage by allowing China to infiltrate our economy at the behest of big business who wanted to rape China's economy and it back fired. We were naive in thinking that we could compete with a dictator who enslaves its people to slave labor. Then Clinton abolished the Glass-Steagall act which furthered our demise by letting the elites who profited from China's temporary poor economy, get filthy rich with no oversight and created the 2008 financial crises. Now that Chinas stole our technology that we were instrumental in creating through our taxes have been pushed out the door and the elites are pissed. If you follow the money you find that the enemy is not Dem or Reps, they are just puppets waiting to get their piece of the pie, but the true power; the greedy elites who steal, murder and enslave to plunder our wealth. Our only recourse is to find people with true character to run our government and get rid of these antiquated politicians who think that it's natural to have presidents like Trump. In a way Trump may of been a blessing because it's opened our eyes to how close we are to being enslaved by elites who have invaded our lives by controlling every aspect of what we are told through media, internet, history and business beliefs, our institutions, basically anything they can throw their money at, Oh and the most powerful weapon against our democracy, the hate and discourse they stir up to keep us fighting against each other while they promote their agendas; both through Dems and Reps. We don't have to swallow the crap that they try to feed us, we all want a country that is strong and prosperous, and freedom, and security in which we can raise our children and instill the values we hold important. With artificial intelligence on the rise we have better enact laws now that gets rid of corruption and insures that a man like trump is never able to gain access to the Presidency. If we don't its just a matter of time that the corrupt elites will use artificial intelligence to devise ways of better controlling us and probably even eliminating us, the time to act is now, I think Trump has proven that.

youtube is in serious debt as i see it, some of the best stuff is made in japan. the video game industry was once the backbone of what i do. what ive noticed is there less trade and more competition. i would argue that theres less new money being developed and more politics being offered. if the entertainment industry wants to survive its gonna need new ways of becomeing more accessible. instead of spending billions on recruitment videos or my step father. invest in a pro propaganda machine i cant tell you how many times insdtead of watching a trailer for a movie or video game coming out instead i get hit with honest traiers or the story behind and im llike the entertainment value has been ruined. why would i wanna watch some play through something if i havent got a chance to touch that piece of material. that goes without nameing puteepie because he did an excellent playthrough os southpark the stick of truth but the fact of the matter is my entertainment value is constantly stripped before its reimburesed such as my final fantasy collection or my plastation classic idea was purged and taken away 5 minutes after i had the idea. and can i menton this the communitys video game industry of youtube offering a console and games and you never hear from them. im like ok assholes why are you offering it if you not planning on reimburstment of the software. avgn is cool though because i played all those games as child so im familiar but new games are a delicacy. and there is a difference so i would argue there should be grace period for new merchandise to only show a trailer or a small portion. that way we keep it fresh for the ones who actually go out and spend the money on new technology. i ofen do too. i have a harddrive with 300 xbox one games. im right undecided should i ungrade to a ps4 or reinvest in xbox one. ontop of that there is so much old consoles i would argue are some what supior and have alot to offer a gamer. the problem is it very hard for me to get my hands on some of the older models of video game consoles so its always nice to watch my child hood revisted but it would be nice to visit sof those memorys my self. youtube is kinda a cluster fuck and its future rest on the developers and enertainment. and content creaters dont really bother me because i dont watch most of there videos. i was born in the 80s i have different taste.

Trump didn't start the trade war, China and the G-7 did. Trump simply fired back. China and the G-7 put higher tariffs on us than we put on them, contributing to the trade deficit. https://thehill.com/opinion/international/392614-trumps-right-china-and-the-g-7-countries-do-have-higher-tariffs You also failed to mention how NAFTA took away American jobs, including relatively high paying manufacturing jobs. https://www.epi.org/publication/heading_south_u-s-mexico_trade_and_job_displacement_after_nafta1/

John's exactly right! But stepping across the 'isle' to look at it from trump's perspective - increasing the cost of imports encourages Americans to purchase locally. Bet the 'buy local' movement is happy to see the tarrifs. Maybe those farmers should change their focus away from exporting and towards feeding Americans with fresh, organically grown fruits and veggies - the real health care reform.

automation is the problem he says, no it will be but the real factory thing is making workers work faster after laying off 1/2 the employees and expect the same production and I've been through that but then the factory went under from chinese and american factories in china and mexico. It's pathetic how much the left fully ignores and denys when the average worker that has an open mind has seen it first hand and many of them voted Trump because he straight up said it which for workers is a refreshing change for dem or rep workers after the democratic party dumped workers for unions then changed to minorities which screwed them when Trump came alone because the democrats burned their bridges which is dumb since workers where the ones that kept their party together for decades along with the KKK and government unions.

I remember when comedy was funny and inventive not taking cheap shot and making up a new narrative. Hell Trump has shamed Obama and Bush and B Clinton so bad with his impressive results in just less than 2 years. We're feeling pain in the farm sector, really I guess you picked an export mostly crop instead of something everyone in this country buys often. Hell growing pepper or tomatoes is big bucks but I guess this farmer sell soybeans or some cheap crap that btw soy manipulates hormones making men act like women and women act like men and from the California crowd we see this is real hell I bet Trans parents ate a lot of soy or were vegans before and during pregnancy. Hell I always thought it was strange that a US political comedian was considered valid who was had a British accent and how all liberal comedians like Jim Jefferies have turned to bad political jokes from a great comedian to telling dumb jokes that aren't even creative in any way.

Trade deficits are bad if you aren’t importing capital goods. We import toys, consumer electronics, and other depreciating goods. To finance the deficit, we must go into debt and sell our assets. So yes, Trump is right. And John Oliver—no matter how many of his NPCs clap for him—is wrong.

Trade wouldn’t happen unless both parties benefit. It’s not slavery or a hostage situation.

byindani - Under a free market, this would be true. Unfortunately, our trade is being distorted by retarded monetary policy at the Fed.
From our position, trade deficits are great. They send us their real products made from raw materials and we give them derivations of our labor.

What John Oliver is not mentioning is that the goal is to bring manufacturing jobs back to the USA. Businesses are starting to weigh the cost of (China Goods + tariffs) vs ( USA Goods). When companies start buying locally it boost our economy. YES, cost go up, but more people have jobs to buy goods.

John Oliver always breezes over and minimizes any legitimate counter arguments. He's just a corporate mouthpiece doing his duty with old fashioned brainwashing of the public. Trump's nationalism is not what the Neoliberal globalists want. They want a global network with some winners and a lot of losers, that benefit the multinational corporations. NAFTA destroyed the US manufacturing base, but of course Oliver just downplays that, let alone fails to explicitly mention it
