Will President Donald Trump back down in his trade war with China, or will he win it?Why does Trump keep making empty threats? To see how Trump's seemingly irrational geopolitical oscillations benefit him, let us return to the U.S.-China trade war.Why, then, has Trump allowed his most Sinophobic advisers – U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, White House National Trade Council Director Peter Navarro and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo – to start a game of chicken against China, which the U.S. is bound to lose? Perhaps it is because Trump knows how to appear triumphant in retreat. Trump surely understands that applying 25 percent tariffs to Chinese-made consumer goods would be wildly unpopular with U.S. voters.
