Trumps China Syndrome
By Ernest Stewart
"I've read hundreds of books about China over the decades. I know the Chinese. I've made a lot of money with the Chinese. I understand the Chinese mind." ~~~ Donald J. Trump
After calling the President of Taiwan, which really pissed off the Chinese, he then doubled down about the drone that the Chinese grabbed much like they did when we crashed a spy plane into one of their jets. He was claiming credit for it's return when he had nothing to do with it, the Chinese had already announced that they would give it back. Trump then said he did not want the drone back! The Chinese replied via "Global Times, a state-run Chinese publication, said that "Trump was an amateur who does not know how to run a country," and continued, that they may teach Trump "some lessons." "Trump is not behaving as a president who will become master of the White House in a month. He bears no sense of how to lead a superpower." As the editor of the Global Times, Hu Xijin, said, "China should teach him some lessons so he might learn to respect China after he is sworn in."
I have to agree with the Chinese, Trump has the brains of a duck and shouldn't be allowed out of his tower, much less given the keys to the White House. I guess, in good conscience I should make a sincere apology to all the members of Duckdom for equating their mental powers to that of Trumps!
Still I wonder what those lessons might be, don't you? The one that leaps to mind is our $11,000,000,000,000.00 debt with China. If they were to call in just 10% of that debt our economic crash would make the 1930's look like the good old days. Then old thin-skin Trump might threaten or even try his nuclear option in retaliation, you may recall that the Donald said: "I'm not going to take cards off the table. We have nuclear capability." And you know how easy it would be to bait the Donald, as Hilary said: "A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons."
You've have gone, America, and elected, a bigoted, racist, bully, unreputable used car salesman and made him the most powerful man on the planet and gave him H-Bombs to play with. What is wrong with you America? I mean, WTF?
