Steve Bannon on the US–China trade war

Former advisor to President Trump Steve Bannon shared his views on the US (QQQ)–China (FXI) trade war at the 2018 Delivering Alpha Conference on July 23.

Steve Bannon: ‘We’re at War with China’

Bannon believes the United States (SPY) has been in a trade war with China (YINN) for decades. He said, “We’re at war with China.” He added that Trump knows he has to “unite the West against the rise of a totalitarian China.” Trump warned China about intellectual property theft from various US businesses. Trump’s main focus, he says, is maintaining fair trade practices.

After Trump’s first announcement about the import tariff on Chinese goods, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), the SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (DIA), and the Invesco QQQ Trust ETF (QQQ) fell 2.46%, 2.97%, and 2.43%, respectively, on March 22.

Bannon seems to have agreed with Trump’s trade policies. He said, “How it ends is in victory. Victory is when they give all full access to their markets.”
