    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.

    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.

    President Trump announced Friday that his administration would end almost all aspects of the American government’s special relationship with Hong Kong, including on trade and law enforcement, and that it was withdrawing from the World Health Organization, where the United States has been by far the largest funder.

    So ..

    To punish China, Trump decides it makes sense to terminate its special relationship with Hong Kong.

    Huh?

    Aren't you still not aware that this idiot is nuts? Stepping out of the WHO is absolutely stupid as well the Hong Kong issue; just let them be absorbed by Xi. But I think China does not care whatever Trump says and just follow their own 25 year plan. We just follow our "demented" leader who has no "plan" at all except to fill his pockets.

    China highlights the hypocrisy of the Republican Party.

    Back in 2012, for example, the Bank of China (owned by the Chinese government) doled out more than two hundred million dollars in loans to a New York office building that Trump co-owns.

    Then there is the report that during Trump’s term that the properties he owns in the U.S. have imported more than eight tons of goods from China. That sounds like a lot.

    And there are the many trademarks that China has granted to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, giving her the ability to market all manner of products, from furniture to beauty products.

    And there are real estate deals for which Kushner tried to lure in Chinese investors.

    And there are the Chinese government-owned companies building a couple of Trump developments overseas.

    Then there are those multiple Trump brand products, marketed under Trump’s name and made – you guessed it – in China.

    The National Republican Senatorial Committee sent candidates like McSally a 57-page memo a while back saying that rather than attempting to defend Trump’s bungled handling of the coronavirus crisis, change the subject by attacking China.

    McSally follows orders.

    China is our “biggest threat” she said during Tuesday’s debate. She said, “They (China) unleashed this virus on the world.” She said, “I’m standing up to China, while my opponent is doing business with China.”

    Really?

    Kelly’s business with China is chump change compared to anything that Trump or his daughter or his son-in-law or their companies have done with China.

    If McSally is bothered by Kelly, you’d think that the hundreds of millions of dollars worth of business that Trump has done with China that would REALLY tick her off.

    But…

    The China thing is just another farce which is created by Trump and his cohorts. The trade deficit with China is even more than when Trump started with his "tariff's" . Very successful indeed; great business man for sure!!

    But yeah, the stupid people here are paying for the "tariff's" not China. Where are the "brains"?
