  8. The blaming game begins. Nah, since long time ago, any poor handling of local policy will be directed at China. China is to be blame.

  12. what the fuxk the medicine made in china?

  13. Nobody forced US companies to go to China. It was largely US greed that got them there. Now that China is rising and offering alternatives to the world, the US is quick to cry foul. Even US vassals states in Europe are jumping ship more and more.

    Also, why is US healthcare (including some medication) so absurdly expensive ? Answer: Greed and general (intentional) mismanagement.

  14. You cannot fight China because they can produce everything cheaper due to economies of scale of 1.4 billion people. Unless the US government subsidize pharma, but then what about rare earth, toys… everything. Just give up trying 🤕

  15. US starts trade war and tries to destroy China, dumb Americans think China is out to get the US? lol. It's like shooting another man and claiming he shot first and out to get you!

  16. Wait a minute! 80% of the key ingredients used to make pills in the US are from China? Did Trump know this b4 starting a trade war? Could dis be 1 of d reasons past presidents didn't address d theft of intellectual property?🤔

  17. The Chinese should do to usa the same thing the usa do to CUBA, VENEZUELA, NICARAGUA, IRAN, NORTH KOREA,them they can feel and live what those families ,kids feel.

  18. Greed, money …. This is why!! They're not stupid. America has lost its way due to corruption and bad leadership that sells itself out.

  19. Please explain to us why China trusts US so much that they just import pork and other foods from US without any concerns.

  20. Should our nation subsidize pharma?
    Free property, power, low tax?

  21. This is all part of China's plan to take over the world!!!
    But we allowed our greedy companies to do this to us.
    Maybe it's time to start filling our prisons for the corporate executives.

  22. A case of companies putting profit over people and the U.S. government let it happen

  23. 2:05 he says it all right here, profits first, wellness of humanity second .. then people act like W T F, how did it get to this stage.. you are engaging in cheap profiteering, and you are the cause of the problem. case closed. what about "Growing Concern over Cheap Profiting"..

  24. I don't want to buy or consume anything made in 🇨🇳 ! Stupid Trump putting us at risk. Hope he takes a 💊 from 🇨🇳 and gets 😷.

  25. Our crooked politicians sold us to China.

  26. China is out to destroy America & they are doing a fantastic job at it… unbelievable US government would allow China to be the new powerhouse in all aspects of life…boy we are in deep trouble… Almighty God of holy Israel, plz help us…amen 🙏!
