The Global Times, known to be China’s state media outlet had some telling comments.
The title of their latest jab at the US was, “China will never make reforms under US pressure.”
China Admits Needing Reform
I had a couple of questions on that.
They would be ready to make reforms without US pressure?
Is this admitting that they need to make reforms but US pressure is holding them back?
The inference in their headline’s language shows global pressure pinning them to need to make change. But needing to save face they need to do it only in a reduced state of “pressure.”
It Gets Better
At the end of the Global Times post they again hinted confirming the need for such reform.
They said, “US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers got it right when he said that Chinese companies’ leadership in some technologies is not the result of stealing from the US.”
Wait a minute. “Some” technologies are not the result of stealing? They agree with that statement? So that would mean some are the result of stealing?
In that one Global Times message from the state of China, they hint and admit that reform needs to be taken but they need to save face and can’t be pressured.
Trump Negotiation Step Two
As we’ve seen many times President Trump initially puts obscene pressure on his target. He then follows that up with relief and ingratiating consolation to close a deal.
Sounds like we’re headed there.
As soon as Trump enters step two, China will “make reforms [not] under pressure.”
