China and the US have been in a trade war for quite some time. After disputing back and forth, China is now accusing the US of bullying. Let’s dig a little deeper…

China and the US have a long history, and name calling on China’s behalf has people wondering if this is true, and why. According to CNBC, a recent talk between China and the US led a Chinese Commerce Ministry to state during a press conference that the United States bullied China while conversing over trade.

According to CNBC, China’s Communist Party published a graphic recently that was just one image with three slogans and gold lettering and was printed over the Chinese flag and a photo of shipping containers. CNBC’s translation of the Chinese slogan is as follows:

“Negotiate, sure!”

“Fight, anytime!”

“Bully us, wishful thinking!”

Spokesperson Gao Feng said, “The two sides had open and constructive communication during the 11th round of China- U.S. high-level economic and trade consultations.” Gao continued with explaining how this sets back negotiations saying, “However, it is regrettable that the US side unilaterally escalated trade disputes, which resulted in severe negotiating setbacks.

According to CNBC, US and China have been disputing over trade for over a year, and in May, the trade war escalated. Trump has now increased the tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods recently. China has since retaliated with tariffs worth $60 billion worth for imports. There seems to be no sign of agreement any time soon, but if an agreement isn’t reached, the damages could affect US and China economically.

Gao said, “China always believes that raising tariffs is not a solution to the trade frictions.” Gao continued that the US needs to fix their mistakes, “We urge the U.S. side to correct wrongdoing as soon as possible to avoid causing heavier damages to businesses and consumers in both countries and dragging down the global economy.”  CNBC reported that the market for the US tanked on the trade news and then earned back their losses.
