Ben Carson on US-China trade, says Trump is a great negotiator


♪♪ CHARLES: HOW ARE INSIDERS WITH THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION RING AING TO THE PRESIDENT’S NEW RANT THIS MORNING ON CHINA? MORE OR LESS REALLY AGAINST AMERICAN COMPANIES. I WANT TO BRING IN EXCLUSIVELY HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT SECRETARY BEN CARSON. SECRETARY CARSON, THANKS FOR JOINING US.>>ABSOLUTELY. CHARLES: EVERYONE KNOWS PRESIDENT TRUMP IS UPSET WITH THE FED AND ALSO UPSET WITH THIS RELATIONSHIP WITH CHINA. THEIR RETALIATION THIS MORNING OBVIOUSLY ANGERED THE PRESIDENT EVEN MORE BUT MANY ARE SAYING THE PRESIDENT CAN’T ORDER AMERICAN BUSINESSES WHAT TO DO. HE CAN ASK THEM, CAN REQUEST, EVEN USE THE OLIVE BRANCH FROM HERE TO THERE, WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF WHAT HAPPENED THIS MORNING WITH THESE SERIES OF TWEETS?>>WELL YOU KNOW, THE RELATIONSHIP WITH CHINA IS A VERY, VERY LONG AND COMPLEX ONE AND, YOU KNOW, SOMETHING HAS BEEN NECESSARY FOR A LONG TIME. IT IS FINALLY BEING DONE. I THINK WE JUST HAVE TO KIND OF LEAVE HIM TO, YOU KNOW HIS AREA OF EXPERTISE AND THAT’S NEGOTIATING. IT IS GOING TO BE TOUGH THOUGH. CHARLES: NO, IT IS GOING TO BE TOUGH BUT TO BE QUITE FRANK WITH YOU, I THINK WE’RE WINNING THIS THING. THE ECONOMIC DATA PROVES WE’RE WINNING IT. BUT WE ULTIMATELY WANT TO WIN IT. AMERICAN BUSINESSES ARE MOVING OUT AT FASTER PACE THAN EVERY EXPERT SAID WAS POSSIBLE A YEAR AGO. I THINK IT IS RIGHT TO SHAME THEM SENDING JOBS OVERSEAS ABOUT BUT WHEN YOU START TO SAY I WILL ORDER COMPANIES TO DO ANYTHING THE PUBLIC GETS WORRIED. CERTAINLY THE MARKET DOWN 570 POINTS, THE MARKET IS DOWN, AND DO YOU THINK THERE IS ANY WAY TO MITIGATE THAT TYPE OF LANGUAGE?>>PEOPLE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE SOMETIMES THINGS COME OUT OF PEOPLE’S MOUTHS IN WAYS THAT THEY DIDN’T NECESSARILY INTEND. YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT REALLY WHAT IS THE INTENT HERE. AGAIN THE INTENT HERE IS TO RECTIFY THIS INCREDIBLY LOPSIDED RELATIONSHIP THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A VERY LONG PERIOD OF TIME. CHARLES: ABSOLUTELY. INCLUDING THE FENTANYL ASPECT THAT CHINA SAID THEY WOULD STOP LAST JULY. THEY HAVE NOT STOPPED AT ALL. I DO WANT TO SWITCH GEARS. YOU ARE WORKING ON SOMETHING MONUMENTAL. YOU’RE PROPOSING A RULE CHANGE THAT YOU SAY IS GOING TO PROMOTE THE PRODUCTION OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING. REALLY VIA HALTING DISCRIMINATION. I WANT YOU TO EXPLAIN TO THE AUDIENCE HOW THIS WORKS. THIS IS THE DESPERATE IMPACT RULE, RIGHT?>>RIGHT. AND SIMPLY MEANS THAT YOU KNOW, IF A RULE OR A POLLY HAS BEEN PUT IN PLACE, AND UNINTENTIONALLY NEGATIVELY IMPACTS ONE OF THE PROTECTS CLASSES THEN YOU HAVE A DISPARATE IMPACT SITUATION. THE PROBLEM IS IT IS OVERLY BROAD. WE ARE 100% BEHIND GETTING RID OF DISCRIMINATION AND ANY DISCRIMINATION, DISCRIMINATORY POLICIES HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED BY OUR AGGRESSIVE PURSUIT OF FACEBOOK, OF DISABILITIES PROBLEMS IN LOS ANGELES, WHAT IS GOING ON IN SAN FRANCISCO. WE’RE NOT GOING TO LET ANY OF THIS STUFF GET BY BUT WE DON’T WANT A SITUATION THAT IS SO COMPLEX THAT ONLY PEOPLE THAT BENEFIT ARE LAWYERS WHO SUE EVERYBODY FOR EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN. CHARLES: RIGHT.>>AND SO, A GOOD EXAMPLE WOULD BE IF CONGRESS WERE TO RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE TO $15 AN HOUR. THE PEOPLE WHO WOULD DISPROPORTIONATELY BE IMPACTED ARE LOW-SKILLED PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT GOING TO GET THOSE JOBS. CHARLES: SURE.>>MAJORITY OF THEM OR A LOT OF THEM ARE MINORITIES. SO MINORITIES COULD BRING A SUIT AGAINST CONGRESS SAYING, YOU KNOW, DISPARATE IMPACT HAS BEEN INVOKED. THAT IS THE KIND OF THING WE’RE TRYING TO GET RID OF. WE’RE TRYING TO PROVIDE CLARITY. I THINK THAT WILL HELP BOTH PLAINTIFFS AND DEFENDANTS, ONLY PEOPLE WHO REALLY WON’T BE HELPED ARE THE LAWYERS WHO SAY, YES, MORE SUITS. CHARLES: ALL RIGHT.

  1. The majority of Chinese people are no more responsible for the words and actions of their current leaders than the majority of Americans are responsible for the words and actions of their current leaders.

  2. President Trump on one hand calling president Xi a friend. On another hand president Trump call him an enemy. President Trump is a very poor liar. His supporters are living in a lie.

  3. China under President Xi is good in making friends. While US under President Trump is good at making enemies. Who do you think will be successful in business? In handling trade Trump use brute force while Xi use respectfully win-win solution.

  4. Buy American made,. CHINIA had been robbing us for years, thier Country is fluouseing, (while ours should have been,) Clinton is the one that gave them all of our FACTORIES in that NAFTA TRADE! It may be a little bit of a ruff ride for awhile, but when every thing settles down, we will all be happy for It, we will make more money here in America, AND HAVE MORE OF OUR OWN FACTORIES, AND ALOT MORE JOBS, WHICH MEANS WE WILL HAVE A LOT MORE MONEY FOR OURSELVES TO SPENED ON OUR OWN THINGS!

  5. If Americans refuse to stand up with President Trump…..it shows to China a inverted call for China to keep up the silent terrace attacking Americans…….

  6. After 30 years of China doing unfair trade with America don’t think for a second this is going to be easy, stay the course Mr President, love Dr Carson he is spot on.

  7. Dr. Carson has been nothing short of an abject failure as HUD Secretary. It's really unfortunate, but he turned his back on the people that needed him the most.

  8. Thank you President Trump for taking on communist China and putting America first. We are praying for your continued success winning for America. Why is America doing business with communist China that does not give their citizens basic human rights? Why are people so willing to be dependent on a communist country instead of remaining self sufficient?

  9. What a pathetic joke, Ben Carson touting the “greatness” of Trump, and his negotiating skills. Unbelievable. Our President is a complete idiot, who really hasn’t a clue what the hell he is doing. I don’t know for sure, but I think his “trade war” is going to harm us more than them. Why do I say that? Because of all the Chinese investment on top of, and beyond trade. It is really quite substantial now, but it is evaporating fast, and the Chinese are going to stop buying our debt, and the world will soon be off the American dollar as the reserve currency, now that the IMF has competition. Here’s the problem in a nutshell. Trump, and us by extension, the USA, our business is all about the business of war, and oil. Chinese business on the other hand is all about business. We stand to lose untold investment from China which will just go to Africa, and Asia, and South America now. The party that supposedly stood for “fiscal” responsibility has racked up nearly a trillion dollar deficit this year, and the Chinese aren’t going to buy our debt much longer. Trump is playing a game of Chicken. He could quite possibly crash the economy if they don’t blink when he expects them to. He may make pronouncements like “I hereby order this and that” like the King he thinks he is, but in reality he is a clown, and the Chinese know it (just like the Russians). You can’t run a super power with a clown in charge. He has weakened and diminished America’s standing in the world. China has been building up their standing and financial infrastructure. Plus they understand the golden rule (who ever has the gold rules) and they have a lot of gold now, more than us. The President is playing a dangerous game. If they withdraw investment, as Trump is forcing them to do, then they have no incentive in caring about the health of our economy, and ultimately, our society is far more complex and fragile than theirs…as we might find out when the next crash occurs, god forbid. Also, there is a little problem called “global warming” which requires attention, if it is neglected any longer like Trump is neglecting it, then that problem alone could be the ruin of us, and America, as we know it. Trump is definitely not a genius.

  10. I wanna see how much more china is willing to off set the tariffs increase by devaluating the yuan currency abd lower factory prices. Do it china keep lowering factory prices to offset. Once the 300 billion is in effect, it is going to bite you deep into the middle and lower class.

  11. Stop sending China Rice. Stop sending China Scrap steel. Invite Korea to make smart phones and appliances in the US. Tell Apple to go climb a tree. Quit buying Apples, over-engineered, slave labor produced products.

  12. We need to shake this dependence on foreign manufacturing for simple national security reasons, let alone economic ones.

  13. Brain surgeon? are you tired of winning yet? USA needs China. China doesn’t need USA. trump is beyond stupid. China is testing out its new belt n road initiatives on this fool. Trump is a perfect storm for USA to hand over new leadership to China. trump pulls USA out of tpp. Dumbass moron is bankrupt America in real time. everything trump touches die. trump has no answer to President Xi Xi Ping. let be clear president Donald John Trump, you are the dumbest man in the world. you are a failure and a loser. China makes an investments into belt n road initiatives not to rely in USA economy. China just told president stupid trump to go to hell. China is sending a strong message to the world before the G6 plus g1 summit. a perfect storm for China to announce to the world that China is the number 1 economy in the world. are you tired of winning yet trumpster? American farmers are on welfare n the USA economy is just about to collapse.

  14. Haven’t see Ben Carson for a long time. I was thought he is going to be the president years ago. I want see more interviews from him.

  15. It's unfortunate that the genius surgeon Carson turned out to be an ignoramus… in matters of governance in the important position of HUD Secretary. But then anybody who was picked by DJT and was intelligent… learned relatively short time that the PussyGrabber-in-Chief was a moron. Most resigned leaving the ship of State. Down with the moron. The world learned indeed he was an evil dicktator. Long Live the USA!

  16. President Trump is giving American manufacturers notice… They may be forced to leave their businesses behind if the don't get out now while they can !

  17. Yes, the President has the power to order U.S. Companies home. You are too young to actually see a President in Action. President Nixon frooze wages and prices for 90 days and got us off the Gold Standard….BY PRESIDENTIAL DECLARATION…..

  18. It amazes me how ignorant and how wrong Trump and his advisors are. Seriously would not have a clue. Trump has let this country down and Fox, you should be ashamed.

  19. The company is not going to move out of CHINA when they can produce there products there with cheap manufacturing cost and quality(with American know how)"BUY LOW SELL HIGH" IT IS TOO EXPENSIVE TO MAKE IT HERE @ HOME,BESIDE THE PEOPLE HERE ARE TOO LAZY BECAUSE THEY ARE GETTING ALL THE HAND OUT WHY SHOULD THEY WORK?

  20. Holy crap, FOX really does just parrot Trump talking points. But when Trump has lost his mind, it makes the talking heads look mighty stupid.

  21. I is a stewpuind fucks yallz mines name is uhh, uhhhhh, wellz,,, uhhh uhhhh i thank its uhhh yallz bens hare i thinks its uhh wellz uhhh Caarlsons, yeah boy thats it.

  22. I hope the US and Chinese sides can come to agreement economically, etc. We are both important countries and the stability of the world depends on our getting along.

  23. Take advantage of the insider trading by design guys. When down go in pennies on the dollar !!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Last thing the u.s. Companies want is to retreat China, a market they made loads of money. Trump economic policy is not only naive, but also undoable. Let trade war teach trump economic 101 and free market capitalism.

  25. Mr. Carson the solution is not in the increasing salary but give them education to people so they can get a higher level of employment. Business people are not going to pay that money when they are not producing enough to keep their business blooming.

  26. since youtube ban huge number of chinese account, this comment on videos look completely different….
    I can notice much less trump haters… I presume that good # of "democrats" were chinese state operatives who worked as youtube "persons"

  27. Tramp going to with tariff war with China, like Mexico is paying for the wall. American companies sold USA out to China years ago for GREED. Businesses is not going to pay, 80% bottom people will pay.

  28. Where are some of you people coming from by somewhat patting Trump on the back for a good job. He got America into this mess with China. It always , always about him in the long run!

  29. AMERICANS….fix your Trumpy Dumpy problem….before others in this world do it for you

  30. it is funny to see those idiotic comment below "saying don't buy from China" , just so you guys know if US economy would survive without products from China. Trump would have done so.
    like how they ban our farm goods ! this is a stupid move by president Trump, it has been a stupid move from the very beginning. for those trump supporters who thinks we are wining,i have a 100 crates diamond for sale for $100, it may appear to be a stone but 200 years later it becomes a 100 crates diamond!

  31. In the endgame, it may pay off or it won't. But just how much of your income is it worth to gamble with.
    Mr Trump is playing with a lot of US citizens lifes on the line.

  32. I am going to laugh deadly. Trump is a great negotiator.😂American skills always describe fake things as real things.haaaaaaaaa…

  33. Trump is really really smart… This is a three birds with one stone move. 1. teach China a lesson, eventually force them to get in bed with American business and give US companies the ability to penetrate 2. Get stocks depressed now to pump them up next year before elections, controlled explosion (a.k.a. fireworks before elections) 3. Look tough (appreciated by his core base)…
