    The Chinese made sure that they "played" Trump on his "mental " state. They flattered him all the way and made him feel like "royalty" . Very smart indeed; now Trump will praise them, but has no notion that the Chinese now get whatever they want. Mr. "bully" was as timid as a dog who just got a bone to play with.

    For all of his bluster , he is a weak cowardly little man out of his league. His league is bullying building inspectors ,stone walling bank collectors and lording over any women who happen across his vile slimehood. China has zero respect for the dotard.

    Someone must have whispered in Trump's ear, what would Walmart shoppers do without Chinese made cheap stuff, it's about our economy dummy.

    China isn't alone. It seems like every country understands that the only thing Donald cares about is pomp and circumstance because he is a sociopath who thinks people love him.

    The Saudi's knew that when they gave him The Collar of Abdulaziz Al Saud, their highest honor that can bestowed on a non-Muslim head of state. French President Emmanuel Macron knew that when he had Donald as his guest of "honor" (ugh, I hate using that word for Donald) at the Bastille Day parade in Paris. And China knew that when they forced hundreds of cheering children to waive flags and jump up and down in admiration.

    It's always the same script and Donald falls for it hook, line, and sinker every single time.

    I was thinking something similar. They are not dumb and all they needed to do was say something like this:

    "President trump, we all admire your wonderful success as business man and as leader of the world. Your trump towers are amazing. Maybe someday we can convince you to build several trump towers in China"

    They just need to say something flattering, and trump will sign off on any deal China wants, and trump sells it to his base as "I just made the greatest ghina deal in history, so, so, great that you won't believe it. I will release the details very very soon. Trust me, nobody makes better deals than me"
