Business Insider: Beijing calls for a 'people's war' against the US as Trump threatens tariffs on another $300 billion of Chinese goods in all-out trade battle

* The US-China trade war has dramatically escalated over the past few days, with both sides announcing tariff increases on billions of dollars' worth of each other's goods.
* Chinese state media — which functions as a Communist Party mouthpiece — issued a series of rabble-rousing statements on Monday accusing the US of "greed and arrogance" and calling for a "people's war" against it.
* President Donald Trump's administration on Monday night threatened to impose tariffs of up to 25% on another $300 billion worth of Chinese goods.
* If such tariffs were to be imposed, almost all Chinese imports to the US would be subject to tariffs.
* Trump tweeted on Tuesday that his "respect and friendship" with Chinese President Xi Jinping was "unlimited" but that "this must be a great deal for the United States or it just doesn't make any sense."

The US-China trade war continues to heat up, with Beijing calling for a "people's war" against Washington and President Donald Trump threatening to impose tariffs on another $300 billion worth of Chinese goods.

In a series of editorials and op-ed articles published Monday, Chinese state media slammed what it labeled the Trump administration's "greed and arrogance" and called for a "people's war" against it. Beijing's state-run media effectively serves as a mouthpiece for the Communist Party.

Here's what will happen

1. China will leak some stuff and pay people to leak and/or fabricate stories

2. Thank God the MSM will accurately report on all this, without leftists bias

3. Trump will lose against Bernie

4. The trade war will be lost, and with it several trillion that will have to come from somewhere

5. Bernie will raise taxes to 40+%

6. Russia and China will be emboldened, more so than by the failed pivot to Asia, that was so smart to be combined with the sequester

7. Europe will more closely align with Russia

8. China will go on a buying spree for naval bases as they no longer have to worry about the US imploding on itself

9. America collapses on itself

Or. ...vote for Trump and ask about what really happened with the FISA abuses, the spying on a presidential candidate (first in US history)

Calling for a people's war is NOT a good sign from any China leader.
