Since the rich love imports, why doesn't China IMPORT the CT6? This can't be a high volume market. We'll import 100,000's of Envisions, and probably LaCrosse's but they can't import 10K CT6's?
Trump is right: We're being screwed! A Global economy should work both ways not just in their favor.

It's GM's decision, as a US company, to import models from China - it's US customer's decision to buy models built in China - the issue is with the US customer base and GM management, not directly anything to do with trade barriers.

Ah, here's where you come up short.

America has been taught to love imports by a generation of self-centered former communists and perpetual degenerates who have passed that love of self-flagellation down to another generation of communists and degenerates, and so the rich do not love IMPORTS for the sake of imports; they just love anything that isn't American because it isn't American.

That's why EUROPE has the mystique it has, despite being pretty crappy outside of its old, near-ancient cities.

The Chinese similarly enjoy anything non-Chinese for the same reasons Americans began to hate American cars (quality, prestige, etc, all reasons intimately related) but you are right in that we're getting screwed, because China still considers Chinese-made foreign-branded cars foreign, and we've let those cars be built elsewhere because China does not play fairly in the global marketplace.
