In a taped interview with CNBC, Trump said "I'm willing to go to 500", referring roughly to the $505.5 billion in goods the USA imported a year ago from China. Trump called the move the "right thing to do for our country", adding, "We have been ripped off by China for a long time". Interviewer Joe Kernen asked Trump if he was ready to go to $500 billion, to which Trump replied, "I'm ready to go to 500". "He doesn't want to move, and they've offered the US absolutely...no options regarding the issue of [intellectual property] theft and forced technology transfer".

"But it was very unfair".
Such a move would be a big wake-up call to the European Union which in spite of threatening to develop freer and more open bilateral trade with China, is once again dragging its feet due to an historic atmosphere of caution in Brussels when it comes to allowing Chinese goods into Europe.

Anyone familiar with Chinese history knows that "maximum pressure" doesn't work for our nation. In the 1980s, the then-real estate mogul railed against the US's trade deficit and warned of "other countries ripping off the United States".
According to U.S. data, China imported only US$130 billion of USA goods, meaning that Beijing would eventually have to resort to non-tariff measures.

The surplus, at the centre of U.S. arguments against China, was not produced intentionally, since "the flow of trade is determined by the market", Mr Cui said.
