Joint Session Speech Mystery: Has Goldman Sachs Wing of Administration Derailed Trump’s China Trade and Jobs Plans?
Article on BBC a couple of nights ago addressed the China-Trump relationship, noting that the Chinese are biding their time and the Trump family has serious financial interests in China. So it would seem that the splenetic verbiage from Trump will not overly affect relations between Trump and China and the Chinese will quite politely play Trump to China's advantage.
And the USA worries about Vlad Putin? China is building its economic empire through doing business and "investing" in many countries by buying business, mines, real estate and farms. China is also lending money to build oil-production and refinery infrastructure in such places as Ecuador and Iran and also investing as a partner in the construction of such enterprises, which then allows them to take a cut of the profit and oil produced with no risk of failure in the exploration area.
China plays "Go" expertly, whilst the USA blunders around the chessboard as a drunken elephant knocking pieces over.
