President Trump is expected to announce an investigation into Chinese trade practices Monday.

This is in response to allegations of violated U.S. intellectual property rights and forced technology transfers.

The announcement comes amid heightening tensions between the U.S. and China, despite voting in favor of sanctions on North Korea.

Although the investigation will not immediately impose sanctions on Beijing, it could lead to tariffs on Chinese goods.

    China has been pirating American brands for years, so long that the narrative was dropped by former administrations. Americans of every stripe have been ripped off from buying pirated goods..wanna keep going out and plunking down designer cash for a cheap copy of an expensive designer item? Just keep on ignoring the blatant intellectual property thievery.

    The chinese have been taking the US to the cleaners for the past 20 years – cheap electronics in return for US real estate. The most dishonest, cunning people I know.

      Cunning isn’t the word I would use. Egotistical and Communist is hand and hand. When China burns the bridge that economic trade brought China, it will have a civil war on its hands…

    I bet the Chinese import goods from North Korea, stamp them PRC or China and sell them to the world in guise👍🏻
    Gotta help their bro⬇️
    My family and friends buy nothing made in China. We do purchase items made in America or in countries that are Americas ally’s only.

    • andrew moore

      That would not surprise me one bit..

      • All American

        Never underestimate our enemy

    • keycat

      that’s another storyline, already on OANN.
      mostly textiles & such, i understand.

    • Sonny Shaw

      I find myself going in that direction also. Hurt China and hurt the Communist who run China till the people of China stand up and eliminate those communists. We must take revenge by buying anywhere but China.

      • All American

        Agreed

      • ken

        then don’t buy a so called American made car cause its full of china parts oh wait so is every thing else it might say its American but most isn’t it just has a American name on it like most of the junk warren buffets brookshire hatchway companys sells

        • Sonny Shaw

          I know and it is getting harder, but China has also shown it’s hand and what it wants. Remember one thing, a famous Communist one said; that the capitalist will sell us the rope we hang them with… That is China’s agenda..

    • ken

      you don’t buy much then do you since theres all most nothing made here

      • All American

        As I stated previously, we buy items made in America and allied countries only.
