Seems if China does not want to play fair on trade, then the citizens of the USA should start reading the labels of products and buy other countries products. But is it even possible to rid our life of China products? Perhaps curtail our purchases is more reasonable.
The other option is double down on your China purchases and overwhelm China, until the country becomes uninhabitable from pollution.
Can pollution topple a government? Poison the youth and surely the insane citizens will eventually jump the palace gates and drag the rats out into the streets.
Trumps coming trade war (?) with China should be an opportunity to balance the out of control consumer spending in the USA and slow down manufacturing in China. Which might help stimulate factory rebirth in the USA.

If you’ve found a travelers paradise. Don’t tell anyone. Keep it a secret. Even when you have the urge to monetize it into Google sellout money. Enjoy your little secret spot on this planet, because paradise is slowly disappearing around us.
I’ll never tell!
Which is not unusual.
There may be water on Mars. But is there intelligent life on Earth?
By George Monbiot, published in the Guardian 30th September 2015
Evidence for flowing water on Mars – this opens up the possibility of life; of wonders we cannot begin to imagine. Its discovery is an astonishing achievement. Meanwhile, Martian scientists continue their search for intelligent life on Earth.
We might be captivated by the thought of organisms on another planet, but we seem to have lost interest in our own. The Oxford Junior Dictionary has been excising the waymarks of the living world. Adders, blackberries, bluebells, conkers, holly, magpies, minnows, otters, primroses, thrushes, weasels and wrens are now surplus to requirements.
Maxima Acuña de Chaupe, the human rights defender who has stood up to the world´s second largest gold producer and refused to leave her land, has received numerous death threats from a Yanacocha worker allegedly acting on orders from the company.
The worker, who is employed by Yanacocha to supposedly watch the alpacas that Yanacocha strategically placed in front of Maxima´s home, threatened to ´make her disappear´, reported Maxima´s son Daniel on Thursday, 30th July.

Here is another good article.
Over the last 4 years, Máxima Acuña de Chaupe has led her peaceful struggle against US-based Newmont Mining Corporation and its Peruvian subsidiary Yanacocha. By doing so, she is also defying a deeply entrenched system of impunity and injustice that afflicting communities and activists engaged in the ongoing conflicts over resources in Peru.
Here is the CEO off Newmont Mining Corporation. Guess he does not give a damn. His hands are bloody.
