US officials seem all to be retarded.
As a start most of their beloved phones, computers and game consoles are produced by a single Chinese entity, called Foxconn! And who knows what bounds they have with Chinese government!
Second, most of electronic devices are done in China because a number US companies have no problem whatsoever to benefit from the cheap labor in China.
Disregarding many other millions of things I could say, US companies made no effort to fill the gaps in many areas, we all like using 4G, but anyone knows the only manufactors of transmission equipments for this technology? Do a search but I can give you a hint, none is from US or designed in US, as they love to say these days.
Greed led to monopoly of a couple of Asian companies that most don’t even know that exists. All disks for computers are done in the same place, same for memories, same for computers, network chips, and the list goes on... so in reality what are they complaining about?
USA is highly dependent on China, if China would close trades with US and embargo US what you think it would happen? Their technology is already in China and China as the cheapest labor and the biggest internal market and offer more attractive conditions for emerging economies. The other way around I don’t think has the same level of impact.
The elected retardeds can bark what they want, but Chinese companies will keep growing and eating us market and on top will continue to have US industry in their side of the pacific.
