Ivy Li says:

Recession caused by tariffs are self-inflicted injuries. Searching the real answers to post QE economy, Trump took the wrong advice. Truce of trade war is a good move. Only global economy gets moving, the world could come out of QE addiction.

Fox news says china is falling but unfortunately america is rather falling… Very bad media.
