There are mainstream voices in China that say the trade war is a U.S. tool to contain China’s rise. Chinese news outlets, which are tightly controlled by the ruling Communist Party, often aim this sort of criticism at the U.S. to arouse national pride and relieve the pain caused by the tariff fight.

“In the great process of realizing national rejuvenation, there will inevitably be difficulties and obstacles. The US-sponsored trade war with China is just a hurdle in China’s development process,” an anchor said on Monday on China Central Television.

China’s Premier Li Keqiang on Monday called for more efforts to boost jobs, noting that the country could face layoffs.

“No one wins trade wars, not even the bystanders.” Daco wrote in his report.

On Weibo, a social media site, a Chinese citizen with the user name Ga456ong said he’s prepared for tough times. “It doesn’t matter," he wrote. "I can eat grass for the whole year.”
