Fresh update on "xi jinping" discussed on Dr. Drew Podcast
"I'm going to go back again. We're going to talk about Chicago in a minute, but I want to go back again to Wuhan China because I'm just curious on what you go perception of what could you live in a communist system. You said that the reason that so many things are done is to impress the upper management, the local Soviet guidance. I will turn over my cards and say, I thought I was seeing something like that going on in Wuhan when the thing broke out. Because everything they did was not medical, it looked like it was saving face to me. And who would they have to save face to? Well, the world certainly, but the local guy Wuhan is worried about Xi Jinping. That's what he's working. Right. Not Biden or me, or you know, he's worried about Gigi paying and that guy after him. It looked like that to you at the time when breaking people into their apartments and rolling down the streets with chloride, the hydrochloride trucks weird shit that we'd never do medically. What I saw in Russian television when everything happened quarantine ride without permission you can not live house. It is in Russia in Russia. It will be cars driving with a big speaker and saying stay home. Were they like giant megaphones? I got yes. Absolutely. I know it's hilarious. It sounds like the three Stooges. But they were trying to take CDs under control, threading everybody. If you're going to leave your apartment without permission without special beige ID number or whatever you need to go, you're going to get, we're going to put you in prison. We're going to put you in jail. You have to pay money for these. It's going to be fine. Right. So, but again, it's kind of one of those situations. They try to take everything under control. But you have to scare your own citizens. You know, hey, they did it here. Yeah. I can imagine this in a communist system how bad are we doing? It wasn't far off here. It was just done with a gentler touch. So Chicago, Chicago. This was a let's do the Chinatown first. Because we went on a couple of days. We did. We went to Chicago for two nights. We had two completely separate busts. The first one was in the Chinatown based on an African Nigerian lottery scam. Are these up now? Videos. Yes, yes. The one that you're talking about was a completely different kind of scam though. We mentioned employment scams. So this is a scammer. We had actually already scam baited months prior all remotely, but then we revisited it and re scam beta the same person because they were still out doing this. We pretended to be a different victim, got all the information. So basically, she's offering a position as a remote personal assistant. So you apply for the job. She has a whole for me fill out and everything. And then she says, okay, I'm going to send him your first paycheck. You know, your paycheck comes, and she's like, okay, it's going to be like $3500. You keep 600 of it, and then the rest is meant to be sent to a foster home as your first task as my assistant. You're going to send it to this foster home address to get all the toys and stuff or whatever they need. Now, knowing this scam already, the check is fake, so you deposit it, you have an available balance temporarily in your bank. They want cash app. Or whatever remotely sent and then they'll check bounces, and then you lost that money. But we took it a step further and we're like, okay, no, I can't send cash app. How else can you take it? I can mail you a check. I can mail you cash. And she's like, okay, here's the address to the foster homes in Chicago Illinois. It's going to Ted dino at this building. We researched the building. It's an apartment building. It's unit one, the department one, we sit just a full on apartment building and kind of a sketchy neighborhood. So we're like, okay, I told her, I'm like, okay, I'll send the check or cash. I can't remember which one it was. I think it was cash. But we sent it overnight delivery FedEx, game retracting number, and then we flew to Chicago. We had another bus that day before too, so we did two buses there. And we thought that Chinatown does going to be the problem. We thought, okay, going to Chinatown, going to these famous neighborhoods. In Chicago, try to talk to international people, knock on the door, see what's going to happen. Probably going to get in trouble. And that was the easiest wife husband, talk to us, wife trying wife, she tried to cover her husband, but husband, she was like, hey, yes, I was taking percentage. Yeah, I've been doing this. So anyways, he admitted to doing it. I think he realized how deep of a bad situation he was in. He was sending money to China and what did you do with him? Did you go, oh, I'm sorry, and he ended up doing it again anyway. Well, we told him to not do it again. We sent all the information to our guys. And again, the good thing, again, we're not cops so we can't prosecute but what we can do is we can stop that funnel. A scammer overseas is using that funnel to steal money. We're not the only ones that sent money to that address. Any other victim that has sent or is going to send money is no longer going to be able to because he's going to stop receiving it, which then creates more work for the actual head scammer, which just chips away at their same as we shutting down UPS boxes. Yeah. So anyway, yeah, this one, so we showed up at his place and we actually went to the door twice. First as a group, with our camera guy, art, first at the door and the guy answered the door. Another big they're always big guys for some reason. Very weird because usually when somebody expecting package, right? It's like hi, are you speaking package? Yes I am. Your name is, yes, yes. So this time, we're not going to open the door very suspicious looking at me, and he was like, yo, what's up? And I was like, well, there is open it like a crack. Yeah, let's try it out. And I was like, hey I'm looking for Ted dino. Is that you? No. Do you know him? No. What can I find him? I don't know. Did answer a question? No, and he closed the door. So we like kind of, so we let it buzz us into the building. Yeah..

George Soros: Investors in Xi's China Face a Rude Awakening
"This opinion piece that came out that i've hardly seen much discussion of on twitter and other places and and in the regular you know just in the press in general it it basically says that investors in chinese stocks are in for a rude awakening. And the reason for that is that you know soro says that gijon ping china's leader he starts off this piece by saying xi jinping china's leader has collided with economic reality so so g has cracked down on various types of private enterprise. And and soros things it's going to be huge drag on the economy. Continue to be a huge drag on the economy because the market has hated this so far this year. Right the the if you just take a look at for example. The i shares china. Etf from late february like february seventeenth to about august twentieth. Sing was down thirty two percent and this is not a brand new story. but there's been a slight rally chinese stocks in the past. You know since. August twentieth. Because g has come out and well china's financial sort of authorities have come out at no no. Everything's gonna be fine. We're just you know we're we're just cracking down on this one industry and you know a couple a few years ago. Two three years ago. I think it was twenty eighteen g kind of targeted these for profit education companies which were a big part of this selloff and he said you know the for profit education companies. They shouldn't be for profit they should be nonprofits and and You know then. In march he made what i consider kind of a classic communist criticism of private businesses.

China Is Limiting Kids Playing Video Games to 3 Hours a Week
"On wednesday. New rules took effect in china that severely restrict the amount of time. Young people can play video games online. Between friday and sunday gamers under eighteen years old will only be allowed to play between eight pm and nine pm the rest of the week. They won't be allowed to play at all. The regulation will also require all users to register using their real names and government issued. Id's it's of beijing's larger efforts to crack down on the growing power of tech firms and insert itself into the private lives of chinese citizens joining us to discuss how these new rules are being received. And what it means for. Gamers and gaming companies alike is the wall street. Journal's deputy china bureau chief josh chen hi josh. How are you so josh. This is the first time. China has restricted gaming for minors in two thousand nineteen limited playtime to ninety minutes on weekdays and it also limited. How much money they could spend on video games. So we're these new. Even more restrictive rules. A surprise was in wasn't a surprise last month. State media outlet published a commentary described video games as quote unquote opium of the mind and that triggered a pretty major sell off shares of gaming companies ten cent which is china's biggest gaming company. I think fell somewhere around. Eleven percent in prior to that china's leader xi jinping has taken aim at video games as a danger to the development of chinese youth. So we've suspected for a while it's something might becoming but what was surprising was just how strict and specific these restrictions were three hours is pretty miserly. Yeah these new restrictive rules. How is china planning on enforcing them in. That's a really good question. They haven't been specific about it and the way that things often work in china's at the communist party will come up with rules and then sort of leave it up to the internet companies themselves to figure out how to enforce

Xi Jinping Vows China Will 'Take Down the Old World'
"For the purpose of this interview for this discussion explained to us the significance of the hundredth anniversary of the communist revolution in two thousand nine hundred forty nine and the concept of one belt one road in how these things tied together tied together golden july. First of this year The communist party marked the centennial of its founding. Twenty forty nine will be the centennial of the establishment of the people's republic and between now and then there are certain dates that do have some significance for the communist party. But let's just take a look at what season ping said on july first. He is widely quoted as saying that We will cracks skulls and spill blood for those who stand in our way on but there was something even worse that he said Which i thought was more ominous. He said quote the communist party of china and the chinese people with their bravery internati solemnly proclaim that the chinese people are not only good at taking down the old world but also in building a new one really what siege ping was saying. Was that they were gonna take down the existing westphalian international system which recognizes the sovereignty of states. And they were going to replace it with what we were talking about. Before this notion that chinese rulers had the mandate of heaven over and by the way for people who are interested. Don't read the official chinese translation of things words because actually quite benign in a number of spots you have to read a literal english translation of the chinese. Because really what that does is it. Shows the the maliciousness of the chinese system. We're dealing with a militias ruler. Dangerous arrogant bellicose. Who wants to go out and kill people and indeed jinping has his own death toll which is now somewhere in the neighborhood of about a four and a half million
Gordon Chang Describes How Mao Is Responsible for the Deaths of Tens of Millions
"Gordon. You mentioned mile in your discussion of china today and the fact that xi jinping is creating a semi authoritarian regime. He's not mao. Help us to understand who now is and why for some i mean we talked about communism. My parents suffered under communism stalin. Lenin these are the figures we think of but the chinese regime is the deadliest of all we are talking about. Maybe fifty sixty million people killed in. The name of karl marx is a utopia told to us about the significance of mile in the building of the communist state and the significance of now still today. Yeah now is one of the early members of the chinese communist party which was generally formed around. Nineteen twenty one. The official birthday is july. First one thousand nine hundred ninety one mile was a enormous vigor dominated china and indeed dominated asia for quite some time When mouth was successful in forming the people's republic of china which was declared on october first nineteen forty nine mao became the most powerful china's theater and eventually he pushed out others And during mouse era the death toll was staggering far beyond any other leader. People say for instance in the great leap forward Which was the campaign. Nine hundred and fifty nine thousand nine hundred thousand nine hundred sixty one time of the great salmon as it's called there somewhere between thirty and seventy million people died now. In addition to that you have five million people in the cultural revolution. You've got several million here and there But maoz death total could very well be somewhere in the seventy seventy five million range other people put it less. But the point is that this was one man directly responsible for policies that resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of people

"Bloomberg. let's talk a little bit. What's going on in european markets. We're looking at what we saw bigger gains. I guess in european markets Across the board than we then we have in. Us markets today. But the question is are there bigger gains to calm especially if you believe the reopening trade has yet to really hit. Tim craig had joins us. He is senior strategist senior. European strategy is also the director of research content for bloomberg intelligence so tim. What's your read through. What especially when you look at earnings in europe versus earnings in the us. So that we're we're pretty constructive if you look towards you look out towards the end of the year the next several months Set august decide We think that you've got global. Economic recovery The transitions to expansion. We are in the transitionary inflation campus. A boost of the persistent inflation cats we think companies can manage through it and that sets up a pretty good backdrop especially for companies that are cyclically oriented You know to q. Results themselves fed into a lot of good evidence supporting this sort of construct in our mind. Well an earnings growth has been really solid to tim on the stock six hundred. I'm looking at average earnings growth of the companies reported. Thus far one hundred seventy six percent. I mean that is wild and you're seeing revisions upward revisions accelerating as well. How big of a drop off. Are we going to see in the third and fourth quarter though yeah It's it's good. It's a good point We're about at al-nar count we're about three quarters done If you look at market cap Having reported You know our number and we're calculating slightly differently one hundred and sixty percent but the important point is that when we started the earnings reporting period that number one hundred and thirty so it's accelerated through the results period and interesting another step for you We're looking at roughly sixty five percent. Having beat estimates twenty five percent having missed at european earnings are are typically a lot more blah than in. us Were you know. Us companies no to to to keep s expectations low and beat That doesn't happen so much over here. So these are these are extraordinary There is no doubt you have to see a slowdown in as you get into three q. And four q but it's not so much the slowdown because the market already knows that In in our mind it's that revisions continue to take up and it's not only revisions to overall two thousand twenty one and twenty two earnings. They are up And that's true. Cost most of the european major market but actually even margin. Expectations are rising Which is particularly surprising. Giving some of the concerns that others have been voicing about inflation. And you know it's gonna hit margins true except for consumer staples. That's a problem. What what's the problem with consumer staples. Yeah aside from. Yeah well. I mean from our perspective. They just don't have the economic leverage to be able to manage through rising costs I mean to us..

"And there are a few overlooked technology companies like cisco or pfizer that we think of good long-term prospects But really haven't had this type of rally that technology overall has how do you think about pricing power when factoring. What stocks do you want to own what you're gonna put in a portfolio especially considering the pretty serious input cost elevation. We are seeing A number of companies talking about in their earnings calls. Well it looks like most companies feel that they raise prices. They're just as a one or two quarter legs so if you look at the consumer staples for example. Many of them have lowered expectations for the year because prices rose quicker than they were able to raise their own prices We think ultimately there's going to be a catch up there so you just want to be aware of it but again even in terms of some of the consumer staples we think you can put money in Simply because the stocks haven't done a lot and they're cheaper than they've been in a very long time so a company like coca cola or kimberly clark or kellogg we think are very fairly priced with good prospects over the next eighteen months and again when the economy ultimately slows down those stocks could become attractive to investors again. What about viacom. You've got that on your list. And i'm just wondering if the reopening has anything in store for viacom because you know obviously we were all stuck inside watching their content but now we can actually get out well. We think that certain players will not do as well as people get up but in terms of viacom they have a robust movie business and that movie business is going to get a a lot better so we don't think they're hurt by the reopening play. We think on the margin. It's probably a little bit better and it's a very interesting company here. Stocks in about ten times earnings. We think they definitely are going to be a winner in the streaming space. You get cbs. Which is a great business and paramount. which is a great business. You're not paying a whole lot for so we think ultimately somebody could buy them or the stock is worth sixty to seventy so we think they low risk investment. We had owned by come earlier this year. We had bought it A year or two ago we sold it anywhere from sixty to a hundred When the stock came down in the end of march we reborn our entire position and continued to add to it here.

"In terms of all ownership of key technologies and in terms of who's financing development. So i mean the the for me. The most interesting thing is that One man or at least the head of the party can do this right. He doesn't have to deal with all the special interests and lobbyists that will keep. We'll hold america back possibly in trying to improve what we've got going on here. Same i'm sure to in the uk et cetera across western democracies. How powerful is xi jinping. Do i just see it that way. Or is he really the man. Well i mean she who must be. Obeyed was the kind of joke When xi jinping came into power and still have started wielding the big stick authoritarian governments to get things done. I mean certainly. She isn't incredibly powerful leader. Probably the most powerful leader china's had since champion meyer But that comparison with champion meyer. Of course also highlight some of the risks with an authoritarian governance system. Yes we might look enviously at a chinese system that can get things done really quickly push cost vested interests that. Try and block reforms. But let's not forget. The authoritarian governments can get things right really quickly. They can also get things wrong really quickly as well just quickly because we did get a. Pm is from china over the weekend. What do you make of the deceleration in growth. There hasn't been over exaggerated so there's a couple of things going on kaley Say the first one is kind of a normalization of china's growth was first into the cova shock. Also i i of the couva chalk. They had their period of rapid acceleration at the end of twenty twenty and the beginning of twenty twenty. One nygard is steadying back towards a more normal level. The more troubling thing is that we've also now the virus coming back in different parts of china some cases in nanjing some cases in wuhan which you remember was the epicenter of virus lost year. That return of the virus is prompting more controls than what people can do facial distancing and is also weighing on growth heading into the second half all right tom. Thanks very much. Tom orlic joining us there with his story. Xi jinping capitalists smackdown sparks a trillion dollar reckoning. That is our big take for the day. You can check that on the bloomberg terminal.

China Sanctions Wilbur Ross and Others, Responding to Hong Kong Warnings
"Fresh sanctions on a handful of US individuals. It's retaliation for sanctions the bite and administration imposed on Chinese officials last week. Over Beijing's crackdown on democracy in Hong Kong. Its latest attack comes just days before a visit to China by Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman and US China ties are already tense, though, as NPR's John Ruit reports there is no sign China's sanctions will derail the visit. Sanctions are the first imposed by China under a new law passed in June, which facilitates retaliation for foreign sanctions. Among those it hits a former Commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, and the China director at Human Rights Watch Sophie Richardson. For years, Beijing's responded to US sanctions and tariffs with tit for tat measures in Beijing's calculation, it had to respond to the US Bonnie Lynn, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, says doing so before Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman's trip makes sense would disappear better if it happened a couple days after Deputy Secretary Sherman's trip that she says might risk being interpreted as a signal that the meeting didn't go well. And Sherman will be the most senior U. S official to travel to China since President Biden took office. Relations are at their worst in decades. But there's speculation that the trip could start to lay the groundwork for a meeting sometime this year between Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping. There is a desire to be able to showcase that the two world leaders can work together and part of that is being able to meet and discuss issues they agree on as well as those where they have differences, and I really hope As we see more of these incidents is on either side that they won't derail progress towards the usual meeting because both sides, she says, have significant incentives for Biden and she to meet sooner rather than later.

The athletes will be focused on the events. They've been training for looking to make some of their own olympic history for the world. I'm bianca hillier. China's president xi jinping made a surprising visit this week. He traveled to the tibet. Autonomous region of china visit comes as chinese authorities are looking to further control tibet's traditional buddhist culture and generally the region. Robert barnett is an expert on to bed. He's a research associate at the school of oriental studies in london. Tibet is always in the news on the back burner robbie but this seems important to help us understand why there's visit tobacco significant for china's president. That hasn't been a visit by a chinese president since one thousand nine hundred thirty one years since we've seen a visit at this level to debate and it comes at a very important time for two reasons one as tensions between china and india which are all along. The tibet order are rising rapidly. India's mobilized fifty thousand soldiers to the board of china's probably done the same so this is a big signal that could raise tensions along that border and the second reason is that china's program too. Shall we say controlled. Culture into bed and religion is really gaining momentum. Now from what we can tell from the small signs of news that come out so she jinping being there is a sign that this cultural shall we say. Cultural management program is really gathering momentum so the signal She ascending to this border tension between china and india. What message is he sending. Well he didn't go just to the tibetan capital. Lhasa hit the a place he went to was a place coordinating tree which is about three hundred miles east of lahser much lower altitude and nutri is the main chinese base for imigrants. That's why the chinese liked to live. If they've got the choice could it's lower altitude. But it's also the main military base for the troops. The chinese troops and is very close to the disputed indian border so we have a very interesting phenomenon. A huge amount of videos being poured out of china show this visit by xi jinping. They all show him meeting monks and ordinary people in the streets very relaxed. But they don't show anything to do with the military or security or place but probably that may have been the real reason why he was. There was to to show support for the troops who are lining up against the indian soldiers on the gorda just a few miles from where he was the day before yesterday. So meantime in the background. How we're local tibetans and their government in exile responding to visit. Well i it's fascinating because the videos that china has put out a show very cla- cafe cheering crowds greeting the president. Our chairman as he walked through the streets of laws and is quite remarkable because these videos are clearly about showing no security.

And if you look carefully you can see these crowds very carefully arranged and they're probably selected people in the streets that cut off so it will somewhat stench manage. But we don't know what anybody really thinks inside tibet. It's almost impossible. Virtually no news comes out can really be confirmed but we do know what exiles thinking They've put out a statement. You know there's been a hundred and fifty six thousand dollars around the world off of them. In india and their exile government administration has taken kind of low key.

They are very aware think although we can't read their minds and they can't really tell us but when we do the we hear a lot anguish a lot of paying about what china is doing to culture and tibetan religion languages becoming less and less significant in teaching in schools. They're pushing chinese language classes in kindergarten and in every village now they have permanent teams of officials. Every monastery in every village to bet that doesn't exist anywhere else in china so this control society events society in which now featuring pink is pushing citation chinese dominance assimilation of the culture and their religion.

Tibetans look over in xinjiang in northwest china and see an even more bleak future when the put them further under the thumb of beijing. What would you say about that. And the parallels between tibet and xinjiang. I think that the parallels between pension john have been hugely overplayed by foreign media and people misled about this because it but understandably because the party the communist use the same language same terms for what they're doing thought transformation.

And so on modernisation night alcohol rural revitalization and so on so they have these key terms and they use some of the same techniques but engine jong used with maximum force in tibet. They are we re ah council force being used but it's really very rare compared to xinjiang so the implementation of these policies is completely different in nature and this is probably because the chinese like so many countries and so many people are basically islamophobic.

What Is Joe Biden's New China Doctrine?
"Optimists long hoped that welcoming china into the global economy would make a responsible stakeholder and bring about political reform as president. Donald trump blasted that week now. Joe biden is converting trumpian bombast into doctrine that pits america against china a struggle between rival political systems. Which he says can have only one winner between. Mr trump and mr biden have engineered the most dramatic break in american foreign policy in the five decades since richard nixon went to china mr biden and his team based their doctrine on the belief that china is less interested in coexistence and more interested in dominance. The task of american policy is to blunt. chinese ambitions. America will work with china in areas of common interest like climate change but counter. Its ambitions elsewhere. That means building up the strengths at home and working abroad with allies that can supplemented economic technological diplomatic military.

Many countries are alarmed by china's wolf warrior diplomacy but the details of the biden doctrine contain much to worry about not least that it is unlikely to work. One problem is how. Mr biden defines threat because politics in washington is broken. He seems to feel that he needs the spirit of pearl harbor to help. Rekindle a sense of national purpose.

And when she went and testified at Ohio about their heartbeat Bill. She said I got the impression that I was a sacrifice. They were willing to make that the legislators felt sorry that women like me would be swept up by this Bill. But that I was a sacrifice they were willing to make. And I will never forget that that is unacceptable that we would sweep up win who are suffering through some of the hardest circumstances of their lives often with wanted pregnancies and would treat them as if they are immoral people not to be trusted with their own decision making it is infuriating. It's just infuriating. And it's hurtful it's hurtful, and it is a mainstream part of the conversation in Idaho. Our listener Haley sent us news. Story about a Bill that's been proposed that puts abortion into the homicide realm. It's as the draft repeals parts of the state code that prevent women in doctors he receive or provide abortions from being charged with homicide puts the matter within existing statute for the prosecution of murder where it clearly belongs. According to one of the bill's proponents, and the bill's proponents again are a woman Heather, Scott and a man John green. Both republicans. I keep mentioning the proponents with these bills because I think it's important to know that women are not United on this issue. The bills in Utah. Both have women sponsors this Idaho. Bill has a woman sponsor, and this is a hard issue. But it really concerns me when we start talking about this in terms of criminality because I would hope that even people who really are uncomfortable with the idea of any abortion taking. Place could also think of this differently as a crime committed against a human being who lives independently of its mother. We are going to take a took a hard transition here or way from the difficult conversation surrounding abortion abortion laws, they'll call of the country, and we're going to leave the United States and talk about some of the developments in foreign policy around the world before we started recording. Are you had some thoughts about China that I thought were really interesting as the president has been tweeting away this morning about his desire to negotiate a new trade agreement with Xi Jinping. Okay. I need everybody to take deep breath. I'm going to say something that is. In a roundabout way. Good about Donald Trump. I think just let's take a deep breath, and we're gonna work through this together. I was listening to the coverage of the negotiations. Much of the coverage is very frustrating. Like, the fact that the Chinese thought they had to deal with Wilbur Ross, and they thought they had to deal with Steve Mnuchin, and then Donald Trump comes and embarrasses them and wipes. It all away. It's frustrating. I'm impressed that they're even showing up again. It's embarrassing as United States citizen to hear the description of the current negotiations with regards to this trade war with China and at the same time. When these trade wars began, I personally operated with the understanding that China was in a way untouchable that their economy was so strong that we were more dependent on them than they were on us that their growth was sort of Ghazal that it would continue no matter what. And it has been instructive, and I think mildly positive. To see that. That's not the case to see that. This trade bore has affected their growth at it has slowed. And that the pressure on them to do things that we all wanted even democratic administrations wanted which is better guidelines more consistently following those guidelines with regards to trade secrets and intellectual property that that's on the table now because of the disruption caused by this trade war, and I just I think in the past we've gotten into trouble when we decided we understood China, and we understood exactly what was going to happen with China. Like, we thought if China's not a democracy, they won't be able to participate in the global economy. Well that was false. And so while I in no way, shape or form in doors. The method of the current administration disrupting everyone's ideas on China. China's economy, particularly as it relates to trade with the US. I do think there are positive lessons to be had..

But before tesla pretty much every car maker was a joint venture with a Chinese firm, and the US, and and the western general was was insistent that China should get rid of this rule because there were all sorts of allegations of stealing IP, and tesla, you know, wouldn't any carmaker wouldn't want it, and it gets to be the first car maker to have its own factory with completely tight controls than that something that musk would prefer hand. How do you think the trade war and the tiff about tariffs will affect this? So though. Trade war has gone. It has see-sawed a little bit as as we know. You know, now some of the tariffs have been brought down because of the conversation that Xi Jinping had Donald Trump. But in last year, for example, fifteen percent was what foreign cars needed to be needed to pay as import duty in China. The trade war with the US added. Another twenty five percent on top of that the sales on test. Like ours was would you know, there was a huge dent on the sales. So, you know, Tober October-November Ilan musk announced that we will test absolve the extra twenty five percent tariff. And that's clear that the price that the Chinese Chinese consumers become price-sensitive now that twenty five percent has gone away. Anyway, and Vith factory inside China. There are no terrorist to pay. And so that's the biggest advantage that. Muscats going. But do you think that he might face backlash for producing exclusively in China? Would he lose his American market? No, not really because if you look at every large US car manufacturer has some sort of presence in China, so GM, Fiat Chrysler and Ford have all had joint ventures going all the back all the way back in the eighties nineties. It's just that the the rules allow them to have one hundred percent ownership now, eventually they will be allowed to do that and US coming because with go there. It's not like Google going to China, Google going to China's all about information and censorship in this government control with electric cars. There is some of that. But not not a lot of it.
