Donald Trump is waging a trade war that hurts a lot of American workers. Maybe he would understand that if our heavy-handed documentaries about the global trading system were more informative.

Most of China's goods are cheap knock off junk, engineered by someone else, reverse engineered or copied and produced cheaper by the boat load. Only junk in China I appreciate are the antique teak Junks that have been on the water for generations.

I think most "Young Earth" economists agree with Trump and Navarro on international trade practices. Seriously, these are graduates from "Christian" universities using textbooks from "Christian" publishers with home-schooled PhD's. All you need to solve complex problems in science, medicine, economics and astrophysics is the bible. So, relax we're in good hands; the bible "tells me so."

This kind of shit is getting worse. I kind of watch it to get informed from a leftist standpoint, but it's just becoming a torrent of absurdity now, and the irony is not lost. They are reporting on absurdity. Trade war to E-scooter to Dane Cook. Yeah, I guess, but I'm trying to form cohesive thoughts and maybe develop an opinion, and you're throwing my thoughts into a blender every 35 seconds. Infotainment is dying before my eyes.
he does look like MNuchin

Though many times john oliver team research are right , but they are the ones- the Americans choose him. They should introspect rather than mocking their own decisions and earning a hypocrite money out of it.

He wants to force American companies to do business where he say, i thought he loved capitalism, .bottom line is you cant force another country to buy our products if they don't need, China produces everything.and they only import what they need,we make nothing but guns , we dont even make clothes here

You neo-liberal idiots! Trump has been the only person right about China for the last 30 years. And might I add, unlike Joe Biden who is in the pocket of China (with Hunter) Trump has the stones to stand up to China. You people have been wrong for YEARS!

on the BMW- the imported ones , not the suv's the half million dollar ones , mercedes has a few plants here too, all very expensive models from either are brought from europe . that was a stupid argument and you don't make many stupid statements but that one there .

Buy American then , help our country not theirs . When I was a young kid , we were told all these countries owe us , We bailed most out, we helped most come thru with technology. Today we owe everyone? how the fuk is that ? we still bail out countries , and the tariffs even if they grab 5 % we win. China flooded the steel industry and put all our mills out of business, fuk china .

The net effect of the Trumps irritating other nations is that they will rather go and trade with nations other than the US. This effect is not immediate but in long term. Unfortunately it will fall in the lap of the future presidents instead of the Trump who caused it.

This didn't age well. This country is in the best economic boom since WW2.
+sausage salad They conduct deeper and more in-depth and rigorous journalism than most news providers, but that isn't where my information comes from. You've just ignored everything I've said to use two buzz words that are meaningless and oversimplified without context. These phrases can't really be discussed without getting into the complexity of the modern world, capitalist democracy, how other countries handle things and the root of the biggest issues facing your country and the world. If buzz words are all you'd like to bring up, there's no point having a deeper discussion. Good day to you sir!

+The Void with Christina you can't have a welfare state and open borders. Pick one. Stop getting information from John Oliver.
I understand that education is expensive in your country but are you serious? An economy cannot be measured on a day to day basis in soundbites. You have a $22 trillion debt. The skew of wealth is so dramatic that if people keep getting paid slave wages, and things like enormous tariffs are placed on imported goods (tariffs paid by American importers, likely to be paid by American consumers via raised prices) your economic buying power will be so limited that the rest of the world will have a lot of incentives to take their business elsewhere. We live in a global world, and a global economy, despite whatever uneducated propaganda that Trump and Fox News has led you to believe. The world is not how it used to be. America actually needs to have good relationships with the world. Maybe the economic boom is just in your bank account? You're in the richest country in the world and 15% of your population lives in poverty. You have one of the highest rates of wealth inequality in the developed world. Your people borrowed $88 trillion to pay their medical bills last year, and the $1.5 trillion tax cuts benefited the top earners only. The rest of the world is pretty horrified by the whole situation. Maybe you're rich and that's it? Maybe you think your experience mirrors the rest of your country? “The moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.” When up to 1 in 5 kids go hungry in America every day, that "economic boom" seems a bit hollow.

lol the trade deficit shit with china is pretty much true, but trump's tarrifs and lies will make it worse... google how much real estate china owns in usa.. they are becoming the landlords to usa INSIDE the usa... to be sure, i think trump should be gone, soon soon soon and this asshole who is/was his trade advisor should be fired and the idiotic trade wars should be gone, along with his psychotic dream of the great wall of china at the mexico border.. then we all in north america can start getting along again and become great as a continent.

I most definitely trust in the federal government... Part of the cognitive dissonance, people. The FBI, CIA and several other governmental organizations have closely been working with the Commonwealth and former Soviet Union since the 90s. This has always been part of the plan. Like I've stated before... They injected me with nanites in the early 90s. Only reason I'm still alive and such a mess.

The problem with Americans. They’ve never been taught critical thinking skills, most likely by design, therefore they are hands down the most easily manipulated populous. I know first hand because my parents are trump supporters and I’ve never bought into his BS. It’s frustrating watching people be manipulated by Fox News propaganda. I tried to warn them but I’m just a young person so what do I know.

Trump is Correct , People NEED factories to go workout to give them something to do, what else are you going to do with people just give them a Bernie Sanders welfare "living check", and then when a Chinese decide not to send us any more manufactured goods than what we do? You folks are bunch of idiots...you people don't realize they literally unbolt the machines in the United States and send them to Mexico and China just so they could save a few dollars and not pay American workers, if Bernie Sanders said we had to do this if Hillary Clinton said we had to do this you people would think it was a brilliant move it's just your hatred get some way of the facts
Very funny

A trade deficit is just that a deficit the country is loosing $544 billion dollars a year we are pirchasing goods but aren’t selling enough the only reason our country is staying afloat is because of other streams of revenue like tourism which brings in $210 billion dollars.

Amazing content John, I am an old fart of 60 that lives just a few miles from the Duck Commander and their warehouse. Sorry, I say that only because most people know them, hence my approximate location. I am on the other end of the spectrum from them for sure. I voted for what I thought was a lesser of two evils since we only have a 2 party system and Bernie backed Hillary (notice I said what and not who.) I regret the decision to vote for Trump, after watching this video I regret it even more. I don't know crap about economics really, but even a dumbass gun totin' red neck from the bayous of Louisiana can see what trouble we are in! Sadly many of the folks around here do not have a clue. AND don't get me started on the WALL! The wall will not stop immigrants, drugs, or anyone else, except the people like me that want to bug out south if Trump wins again... Haha... you can use that if you want, just saying... You young'uns should see what ole Bernie stands for if you don't already know then VOTE out the madness. Your Vote will make a difference!!! Hopefully, Bernie Sanders will make it this time but it will take you. Too many my age think Trump is the best thing since sliced bread. Bernie did come out a front runner this time and what he says is way more mainstream and accepted than before. We really need a more progressive candidate in office, but anyone will be better than the current bozo orange-utan. I wonder if President Trump knows what progressive means? Nah prolly not! haha #MillenialsVote2020 #BernieSanders2020 #YourVoteCounts #imnotapoliticalpersonjustarealistonagovernmentwatchlist #BernieSandersIsFatherTime #lol #lastweektonight #JohnOliverForPresident2020 oh wait nah rules are rules #JohnOliverForFirstLady2020 #jk #YeahImLateWithMyComment who cares? haha
