Global Times reported on July 20 that Hua Chunying, spokeswoman of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has heavily criticized the U.S. positions on the trade war against China for the fifth day in a row. Hua called out Peter Navarro, Director of the White House National Trade Council, and suggested his comments on the U.S. “suffering a loss” in trade with China is “reversing black and white.” She said that Navarro’s “nonsense” was just designed to fool those American people who did not want to have the trade war. Hua gave the examples of General Motors and Apple. The Chinese market supplied 58 percent of GM’s annual sales, and China only made 1 percent out of the US$649 average iPhone 7 retail price. Hua asked where the “U.S. loss” was. She concluded that a lot of Americans are “living in their imaginations,” and are attacking other countries “just for domestic political fights.” She expressed the belief that the U.S. is the biggest threat to the world’s stability.
