Trump rids major shipping port of Chinese control

 

 

Clinton started this nonsense with giving away control of our ports to China and many other things. Trump has been successful in reversing course and ends a 40 year lease giving control to a Chinese company. Chalk another win for our side.  First the background:

In the mid-1990s during Bill Clinton’s campaign for his second presidential term, the Clinton administration worked towards ensuring a Chinese shipping company with communist ties received a good deal on another Long Beach shipping terminal.

The bad China deals didn’t stop with Clinton, either. Under the Obama administration, US-China relations shifted, with Obama positioning the United States as a partner to China, rather than a competitor. As the US became less competitive with China in the name of “international cooperation”, the Obama administration gradually began to allow more and more Chinese conglomerates to buy out American properties and businesses. The Democrat-backed policies that gave China trade advantages are, in part, responsible for the development of the current state of affairs in which China has a disproportionately large influence on American commerce.

Under a long-term deal sealed by the Obama administration, a Chinese Communist company was set to control the second-busiest container port in the United States. In an unreported Trump administration victory, the Communists are out after a drawn-out national security review forced a unit of China-based COSCO Shipping Holdings Co. (Orient Overseas Container Line—OOCL) to sell the cherished container terminal business, which handles among the largest freight of imports into the U.S.

It all started with a 40-year container terminal lease between the Port of Long Beach in southern California and Hong Kong. The Obama administration proudly signed the agreement in 2012 giving China control of America’s second-largest container port behind the nearby Port of Los Angeles. One of the Trump administration’s first big moves was to get the Communists out of the Port of Long Beach. After a national security review and federal intervention, the Long Beach terminal business, which handles millions of containers annually, is finally being sold to an Australian company called Macquarie Infrastructure Partners. That essentially kills China’s decades-long contract with the Obama administration.

How many Americans know about the deceit of the Clinton China connection as well as Obama and Biden deceit? You want to elect Biden? Biden loves China and as I reported previously

Joe Biden: ‘China not bad folks, not competition to us’

Former Vice President Joe Biden downplayed the Chinese threat to the American economy during a campaign event in Iowa City, Iowa on 5/1/19.

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates did Vice President Joe Biden and his presidential ambitions no favors in offering a summary of the politician’s foreign policy instincts.

 

 

Bonus:

Of course let us not forget Biden in February before announcing his candidacy he did the bend over thing in Europe.

Joe Biden goes to Europe and blasts America – Calls the U.S. an ’embarrassment’

Speaking to European allies, Biden trashed America with an open hostility.

“The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right,” Biden asserted.

“The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right. That it is not who we are.”

Speak for yourself Joe

Other than that, all is well in the swamp.
