President Donald Trump paints China as the United States' ultimate economic enemy, imperiling American jobs by engaging in unfair trade practices. "We can't continue to allow China to rape our country, and that's what they're doing," Trump said last year in Fort Wayne, Indiana. "They are devaluing their currency, and we have nobody in our government to fight them," he added at a debate in September. "They are using our country as a piggy bank to rebuild China, and many other countries are doing the same thing."
I would be willing to bet that a number of Trump's opinions about foreign countries are based on his business dealing with them in the past, and his hopes for personal business deals with them in the future.
We already know that there are "YUGE" business opportunities for Trump and his new Secretary of State in Russia, so of course they blow kisses at Putin.
Which by the way sends a rather clear and stark message to other foreign leaders.
Do business with Trump and his subordinates or get the cold shoulder.
Gee look Mother Jones ignored Stephen Bannon's demand to "shut up."
Good for them. Hopefully every news outlet sees Bannon's words as a command to do their job more aggressively and dig even deeper into Trump's skeleton stuffed closet.
