  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.forbes.com/sites/kensilverstein/2019/08/14/u-s-energy-companies-are-not-winning-the-american-trade-war-with-china/) reduced by 89%. (I’m a bot)

    > China responded in-kind, tagging initially $60 billion in tariffs on U.S. products headed to China – now more than $100 billion, all in response to further trade tariffs imposed by the Trump administration.

    > Trade disputes are typically handled through the World Trade Organization or through multilateral trade agreements such as the Trans Pacific Partnership from which the president withdrew.

    > This trade war with China will take its toll on American businesses and energy enterprises, which value market certainty above all else.

  2. >But supercooled and exported liquefied natural gas may not be so lucky. Absent a trade war, by 2020, the United States could be exporting 70 billion cubic meters of LNG and by 2040, the number could be 110 billion cubic meters, says the International Energy Agency in Paris. Chinese gas demand is forecast to grow by 60% between 2017-2023, all of which is tied to China’s domestic policies to reduce local air pollution by switching from coal to gas.

    I’m not sure how this can be extrapolated to mean that energy companies will suffer.

  3. All I know is Chinese stocks have really tanked over the last year so whoever is winning this thing it isn’t China either.

  4. China is spending fortunes on new energy solutions and your wise leader is cutting its development. You are entirely screwed.

  5. >President Xi Jinping will be in office for much longer than Trump, who is about to go through a brutal campaign: he does not want the American economy or its stock market to gyrate any longer, much less nosedive and into recession. […] Trump likes to win. And this trade war with China will take its toll on American businesses and energy enterprises, which value market certainty above all else. Unless the president figures out a way to walk back these tariffs, he will forfeit that conservative base — and likely the 2020 presidential race.

    This a joke? Democrats have nobody to actually oppose Trump with next year since the trade war will win him the swing states he needs to win. I also don’t care if oil companies suffer, because oil companies are evil especially ones that will finance Trump anyway because he’s fighting the EPA’s fuel efficiency requirements. And who benefits when oil companies suffer, anyway? Farmers who compete against them with Ethanol.

    The author doesn’t have any clue about what he’s talking about. Even if you don’t like Trump, he has a working coalition of blue state steelworkers with red state gun owners. Neither group particularly likes him, but they have no alternative. This is more than enough to afford him 270 EVs and half of Congress.
