China doesn’t reciprocate gestures of friendship: Chang


STUART: FASCINATING. GOOD STUFF. AFTER FIRING A NEW TACTICAL GUIDED WEAPON AS ITS BEING CALLED, NORTH KOREA DEMAND THAT SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO BE REMOVED FROM ANY FUTURE TALKS. THAT’S AGGRESSIVE, ISN’T IT? WITH US NOW, GORDON CHANG, AUTHOR OF THE NEW BOOK, “LOSING SOUTH KOREA.” GORDON IS WITH US TODAY. WHAT DO YOU THINK PRESIDENT TRUMP’S RESPONSE TO THIS SHOULD BE?>>I THINK HE SHOULD SAY TO THE NORTH KOREANS, MIKE POMPEO IS STAYING IN THE TALKS. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT WE’RE WALKING. REMEMBER AT THE END OF MAY LAST YEAR WHEN THE NORTH KOREANS WERE UNUSUALLY BELLIGERENT WITH REGARD TO U.S. OFFICIALS AND THEIR RHETORIC, TRUMP SAID I’M WITHDRAWING FROM A PROPOSED SUMMIT WITH KIM JONG-UN. WITHIN HOURS THE NORTH KOREANS BECAME CONCILIATORY. I THINK WE’LL SEE THE SAME DO NAM MICK. THE NORTH KOREANS CROSS AD LINE. THEY’RE TRYING TO PUT PRESSURE ON PRESIDENT TRUMP. STUART: THE QUESTION IS, WHY NOW?>>THEY REALIZE THE SANCTIONS ARE BITING. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS NOT GOING TO RELAX THEM UNTIL THE NORTH KOREANS MAKE IMPORTANT CONCESSIONS OF THEIR OWN WHICH THEY PROBABLY AREN’T WILLING TO MAKE. THEY’RE TRYING TO SEE HOW FAR THEY CAN PUSH THE UNITED STATES. STUART: IT IS BASICALLY A STALEMATE?>>IT’S A STALEMATE SO FAR. BUT IF PRESIDENT TRUMP DECIDED TO GO BACK TO VIGOROUS ENFORCEMENT OF SANCTIONS HE COULD MAKE LIFE DIFFICULT FOR THE RUSSIANS, CHINESE AND KOREANS WHO ARE OPENLY VIOLATING YOU KNOW RULES. THAT WOULD PUT A LOT OF PRESSURE ON KIM JONG-UN. THEN HE WOULDN’T BE GETTING CASH. IF HE DOES NOT HAVE CASH HE CAN’T STAY IN POWER. STUART: PRESIDENT HAS A WAY OF GETTING LEVERAGE BACK OVER NORTH KOREA, SIGNIFICANT LEVERAGE?>>PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID BEFORE THE NORTH KOREAN SUMMIT. I WILL GIVE KIM ONE-TIME SHOT. THIS IS AMERICAN GENEROSITY. THE NORTH KOREANS ARE MISTAKING GENEROSITY TO WEAKNESS AND THAT THEY CAN GIVE A HARD TIME TO THE U.S. THAT WILL BE A BIG MISTAKE, THAT MAY BE THE LAST MISTAKE KIM MAKES. STUART: THAT IS PROVOCATIVE STATEMENT. IT MAY BE THE LAST MISTAKE THAT KIM JONG-UN MAKES. WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?>>BECAUSE THE UNITED STATES CAN REALLY BRING PRESSURE ON THE NORTH KOREANS TO THE POINT WHERE HE, KIM COULD NOT MAINTAIN THE REGIME. STUART: YOU GOT TO HAVE SUPPORT FROM CHINA TO DO THAT?>>YOU CAN PRESSURE CHINA. FOR INSTANCE, WE HAVE NOT GONE AFTER THEIR BANKS FOR LAUNDERING MONEY FOR THE NORTH KOREANS. ALL FOUR OF CHINA’S SO-CALLED BIG FOUR BANKS HAVE BEEN HANDLING KIM’S CASH IN VIOLATION OF U.S. RULES AND U.N. RULES. STUART: IF WE GO OF A THEIR BANKS, REALLY PUT PRESSURE ON THEIR BANKS, CHINESE BANKS, THEY WILL NOT PLAY BALL WITH US WHEN IT COMES TO TRADE NEGOTIATIONS OR ARE THEY?>>I THINK THEY WILL. WE NEED TO GIVE THEM SOME INCENTIVE TO HELP US. REMEMBER THEY ONLY CAME TO THE TABLE TO TALK TRADE AFTER THOSE SECTION 301 TARIFFS. WE ALWAYS THINK YOU GOT TO BE NICE TO THE CHINESE AND THEY WILL BE NICE TO US. NO, THEY DO NOT RECIPROCATE GESTURES OF FRIENDSHIP. WE HAVE DECADES OF DEALING WITH CHINA TO KNOW WHAT YOU DO YOU PUT PRESSURE ON THEM. YOU LEAVE THEM NO CHOICE BUT TO DO THE RIGHT THING. UNFORTUNATELY WE DON’T DO THAT ENOUGH. WE THINK WE HAVE TO BE PARTNERS WITH THE CHINESE THAT APPROACH JUST HASN’T WORKED, STUART. STUART: BUT LOOK, SEEMS LIKE THERE IS PROGRESS BEING MADE IN THESE TRADE TALKS. APRIL 29th, SECRETARY MNUCHIN AND LIGHTHIZER THEY GO TO BEIJING. THE FOLLOWING WEEK THE VICE PREMIER COMES HERE. THEY’RE LOOKING FOR A SUMMIT LOCATION, SOMEWHERE IN NEUTRAL TERRITORY. I HAVE TO CALL THAT MOVING TOWARDS A TRADE DEAL.>>IT IS MOVING TOWARDS A TRADE DEAL. WE HAVE TO REMEMBER WHEN THE CHINESE VICE PREMIER WAS HERE TWO WEEKS AGO, EVERYONE, “NEW YORK TIMES,” “WALL STREET JOURNAL,” WAS REPORTING ON THAT THURSDAY OF THE MEETING THAT LOOK, YOU KNOW, PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS GOING TO ANNOUNCE A SUMMIT FROM THE OVAL OFFICE. WHEN THEY HAD THAT OVAL OFFICE MEETING WITH THE VICE PREMIER AND WITH LIGHTHIZER, TRUMP DIDN’T SAY THAT AS A MATTER OF FACT, TRUMP ACTUALLY THREATENED TO CUT OFF TRADE WITH THE CHINESE DURING THAT OVAL OFFICE MEETING. SO, YOU KNOW, THERE IS A LOT OF PROGRESS BEING REPORTED BUT THERE HAS BEEN AT THAT LOT OF PROGRESS REPORTED IN THE PAST. WE REALLY DON’T KNOW HOW FAR THESE TALKS ARE GOING. STUART: YOUR POSITION HAS CONSISTENTLY BEEN HARD-LINE TRUMP, THAT IS THE WAY YOU DEAL WITH CHINA, THAT IS THE WAY YOU DEAL WITH NORTH KOREA, HARD-LINE, MAINTAIN IT ALWAYS?>>ALWAYS. UNFORTUNATELY THAT THE IS WAY BEIJING THINKS. THEY’RE RUTHLESSLY PRAGMATIC. THEY MIGHT SORT OF SOME LEVEL THINK IF WE’RE NICE TO THEM THEY WILL BE NICE TO US THEY DON’T ALLOW EMOTIONS TO GET INTO THE WAY OF THEIR STATECRAFT. THAT IS ALWAYS TOUGH. THIS IS THE WAY IT IS. WE HAVE FOUR DECADES DEALING WITH THEM. UNFORTUNATELY WE CANNOT BE GOOD TO THEM BECAUSE IT DOESN’T WORK. STUART: GORDON CHANG, THE AUTHOR OF THE NEW BOOK, LOSING SOUTH KOREA. HAVE I GOT IT RIGHT?

  • Red China needs to be broken up permanently. Increase African and middle eastern immigration now into Red China to save the world from Han racist nationalism forever..

  • Elections elections elections. If Trump is out North Korea can go back to what they were doing. They're hoping they can wait him out.

  • When has United States ever been nice to China though? Or better question is has United States ever been nice to any country? Everything they do benefits themselves more than others.

  • So anyone wants to guess who's wearing the trousers in those meetings…it's probably the tough guy…you know the one with the distinctive hair style…no not that guy the other guy with the distinctive hairstyle…

  • hahahaha, this asian guy is so smart, he's squeezing as much money as possible from americans especially now that american is hating the chinese., just throwing books after books that only american will read and be satisfied. in american mind this guy must know what he's talking about because he's asian. he is laughing all the way to the bank.

  • No more trade deal. China told Trump that they do not need the printed US dollar anymore. China has $1.3T loan to US. China wants the payment by gold from now on, not paper money printed as much as they want. Fed said they are holding the world largest amount of gold now. Why don't they use it? After all, China does not want to ship goods for just paper dollar anymore. China has nothing to buy from the US using dollar bills.
