[This appears in today’s American Thinker.]
During the course of his remaining 5 and a half years in office, President Trump will come to an understanding with China. Trade will only be a part of it. It will establish a concord, or state of agreement, between the two most powerful nations in the world. It will result in a peaceful 21st century.
He’ll cut the part on trade some time between now and the election fifteen months from now. He’ll time it so that he receives the maximum political benefit. It will ignite the markets, and the economy will assure him of reelection.
The sticking point of any deal with China is enforcement. They’re not good for their word. So Trump has thus far insisted that terms of the deal must be written into Chinese law. But President Xi has been unable to deliver. His power is limited.
At some point, Trump will relent on enforcement, and the deal is cut. After all the laws of a communist government aren’t worth the paper they’re written on anyway. The only real enforcement of a trade deal with China is going to be American retaliation when the Chinese cheat. Trump knows retaliation.
Also, any trade deal between the two most powerful economies in the world comes with an expiration date. Regardless of its terms, it will only remain in effect as long as both countries remain satisfied with it. So whatever concessions Trump must make to get a deal are only temporary in nature.
It’s the deal of the century. And Donald John Trump was born to make it.
That was the title of a Feb. 29, 2016 article in Time magazine, an article promoted on the cover. When I saw it I thought “Don’t you wish.” Columnist Sally Kohn saw the old white guys at Trump rallies, and she figured this was their last, futile effort at saving themselves. Whoops!
Here we are three and a half years later and us old white guys seem to be hanging in there. Patriotic old white guys are pretty much in charge of our government, from Trump on down. They are largely people Trump knows and trusts.
People like Ms Kohn don’t like me, or people who look like me. She apparently has a lot of company. Isn’t that racism??
Tulsi Gabbard is way better looking than anyone who has ever run for President. I have always admired and appreciated feminine beauty, so I just donated to her campaign.
If you’re not into lookism, there are other reasons to donate. She nailed Kamala Harris on her phony legal record, and she did it with poise and flair. Women can do that to other women. God help you if you’re a man and try it. And since Tulsi is non-white (Somoan, to be precise) she can do it to “people of color” and get away with it.
Tulsi is also an American patriot, the first female combat veteran to run for President.
So we want her directing her barbs at all the other frauds and lunatics in the Democratic primary. Attacking Harris was a breakthrough moment for her, and she’s sure to turn her scorn on some other phony on the stage.
If she gets the chance. In order to qualify for the next debate, she’ll need donors, and lots of them. I donated $3, and may do it again.
Here’s the link to her website, tulsi2020.com.
You’ll get your money’s worth if she qualifies.
