China has plenty of problems right now; the mainland China part wants to get Hong-Kong to be incorporated more and more into mainland China. Also they don't want the US to meddle with it, as well with Taiwan. But yeah, Trump has no clue on how to deal with everything and only can"bully". I bet that one day China will be so fed up with Trump, that they will drop their trade agreement with the US, or just negate it, because they have enough shit going in their own area.
The biggest danger is that Trump meddles in these affairs and makes things worse, which may lead to war.
Schmidt Wrote: China is just letting Trump be Trump as they watch the United States standing and influence in the world plummet. Trump stupidly threats to cut off $500 million funding to the World Health Organization in the middle of the pandemic, and the Chinese step in to fill the void...with a $2 billion contribution over two years. And then Pompeo has the gall to call China's contribution "paltry". Sheesh. What is it with these people?
Yes Schmidt; indeed if this country stays on this "track" then indeed China is the smarter one who will grab all the "deals" in the world as well enlarges its say in world affairs. I Guess Trump and his uneducated cronies have no clue what China is all about, which is 10 times larger and powerful than this arrogant postage stamp.
On Fareed today it was clear on how stupid Trump's policies are; he now also dumped the "Open sky's agreement" to keep the world safer. But yeah, he dropped lots more international agreements. How is an Biden going to fix all our international relationships which are ruined? Trump only liked "dictators" and has "loans" and deals with them, so what will happen with these relationships once he's out?
The other subject was, Why is the US going at it alone? If we would have an smart educated President, we would make sure that we have our "allies" on our side as well the rest of the world. However Trump has no policy other than get rid of our "supporters" . Hammering on NATO and scolding other countries does not help much to achieve certain goals in the world.
As was said, if we would have an combined large force of the rest of the world as an solid "united" group of countries then we can possibly sway China to change, but certainly not if we go at it "alone".
In this situation the US stands alone and the rest of the world only observes that the US has no"plan" at all except "chaos". China certainly is not stupid and has an "plan" which may work for them but not for us.
If Trump gets an second term, then I'm afraid that an possible war may break out, as has happened in the past when an President gets into so much trouble that the only escape is war. L'Histoire ce repette.
