How Pigs Helped President Trump Win the Trade War

When this landed on my desk I was slightly trepidatious thinking that it was another Trump hater article – and I’m not into sharing hate anything.

But, when you read through this is an insightful piece of content that drills deep into a fascinating subject – the trade war between the US and China.

Through currency manipulation, inhumane labour laws, intellectual property theft to market barriers and censorship. The infographic dissects the Chinese pork market and touches on the current coronavirus outbreak.

Content 4 out of 5
There’s a lot of information going on here and a clear narrative meanders through the page. It does make a random jump to coronavirus and divert off to how viruses jump species but overall this does present a case of information about the subject.

A fun infographic that presents a clear narrative about the US China trade war.
