President Trump has pulled off a financial miracle in China. He is returning with over $250 billion in business deals between our two countries. China thinks it is miraculous as well. On his final day in Beijing, Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping oversaw a ceremony in which corporate giants such as Boeing and Qualcomm signed multibillion-dollar deals. “This is truly a miracle,” China’s Commerce Minister Zhong Shan said at a news briefing in Beijing. I call that a thawing of relations and very positive.
Don’t get me wrong, I still don’t trust the Chinese. I never well. But it looks like Trump has found a middle ground of true compromise on a business level. The Chinese respect someone who knows how to deal and shows the proper respect and deference, while still being strong in his own right. Trump says that he is looking forward to a change in the U.S.-China relationship. “Discussing trade … knowing that the United States really has to change its policies because they’ve gotten so far behind on trade with China and frankly with many other countries,” he said.
Why the hell haven’t we elected a competent businessman as President before now?
