but as the rhetoric gets more heated through action from the markets gets clearer stocks slumped globally on thursday and analysts say it will get worse before it gets better. all right for more let's cross over to a financial markets correspondent in frankfurt. meanwhile the u.s. president donald trump says he could imagine show away being part of a used china trade deal even though she away is quote very dangerous what do we make of that. well it's a little bit of a good cop bad cop game here that he seems to be playing one a kind i think it is really just that it is a game and all in all it looks a little incompetent the thing is here is the way is as dangerous as president trump makes it sound if there are dangers from a military perspective as you also said because they allow spying then that problem cannot be solved by just going to cooperating huawei into

a major trade deal then it has to be dealt with and so that doesn't really go together that well it looks a lot more like what we've seen over the last couple of months. president trump is just winging it is just doing his trade deals here with no coherent plan and that is exactly what has the markets worried here in frankfurt but of course even more so on wall street because we have seen over the last couple of months every new tariffs gets answered with a counter-terror of what happens now if you'll ban companies in their businesses does that get a similar reaction from beijing that is what a lot of the tech companies are worried about apple for example all the major chip makers intel ball converso because they have major business of course with china already lost only take companies taking the hit tech companies obviously are mostly affected by that but they're not the only ones this company is if you just look at

china is a huge customer there they have a lot of people in china and they say they were taking one row of every 3 rows that we plant of soybeans that's a lot of soybeans that they were taking so to lose that market last year has hurt us and i think will hurt us for a while and yet these loyal trump supporters who still believe his policies all the right way to go as does nearby fellow pharma dave wilson. china's been a bad actor on the world stage you know they've they've manipulated currency they've manipulated. the allowance of imports into the country so they've they've done a lot of things that manipulates the trade beyond terror of some other barriers so i think we will be better off when this finally gets resolved but it's it's a period of time for a beginning and it's it's painful right now. usually 60 percent of us soybeans a sold to china now there's nowhere for the crops to go so even prices haven't been
