China at a disadvantage in trade war
Because the US buys significantly more from China than China buys from the US, it has more to lose in a trade war with the US. Trump's goals are also more realistic.

While the media tends to focus on the tariffs Trump is imposing, the end goal is to eliminate tariffs on both sides and have genuine free trade to should benefit both countries.
