It is not a matter of blame. The best companies will survive long term.

So Trump's Industry CEO council has disbanded abruptly, indicating removal of Trump support. SIA is clearly a political entity, not tuned in to business reality.

And the excessive consumerism from a general public that constantly demands a new products at the lowest possible price.

@Photonic -- No, because if they get their products assembled somewhere much more expensive than China (e.g. the USA) they'll make less profit, get hammered by short-sighted stock market analysts, the company share price will drop, the executives will make a lot less money, and they'll probably get taken over by a company who did assemble their products in China.

You can blame the low cost of global transport, blame the lack of government policy to support local industry, blame investors and analysts, but don't blame companies for doing what they have to to survive in this environment. A company doing the right and/or ethical thing rather than the cheapest one is likely to lead it it not being a company any more...

Backing Trump anything is shocking and disgusting.

From SIA to Elon Musk, they have all betrayed the human race for an extra buck. Even cowards are capable of passive resistance but these people are so much lower than that.

It just has to be said or I am no better than they are.

Because they are very short sighted and stupid.

Why investigate when the conclusion is apparently known by those pushing it? Probably they can't do anything about it at this stage. China's market power is already too strong. Otherwise, why do seemingly self-protective companies continue to invest there?

It has been long overdue. Well, it's better now than never. I hope that the world can come together on this issue and ensure that the laws are abided by all parties, especially China in this case.

It will be interesting to see what conclusions the investigation draws and how quickly it is completed. It seems likely there will be at least some findings of less than fair play. What can/will the U.S. do in response?

The answer is known or easy, a 'probe' by Trump looks relatively weak, compared to immediate action.
