Commenting on the escalating US-China trade tensions, “Without China’s market of 1.4b people, US farm goods will have nowhere to go, farm land being abandoned, farmers going bankrupt,” Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of Chinese and English editions of the Global Times, tweeted out.
“US energy products will also lose an infinite market. Chinese auto market is already bigger than the US’ all of this doesn’t have to happen. I hate trade war.”
