I happen to know, but your assumption is annoying.

@Cuterthanpaul,
You will have to be more specific about what "boycott" means.

China is a major trading partner with the US totaling hundreds of billions of dollars. China produces lots of the stuff you depend on cheaply from socks to televisions. China is also a major market for US goods. Several US industries, for example electronic equipment, depend on the huge Chinese market.

Any major disruption with US-Chinese trade would result in layoffs of American workers as well as sharply rising prices in goods Americans buy.

To do anything to end trading with China would be ******* nuts.

Frankly, I think Max is being kind here. It would be much worse than just "******* nuts."
