China maybe doing what a LOT of countries seem to be doing with Donald Trump….
Stalling for time….
Betting that Trump will lose next years election and they can then sit-down with a more rational Joe Biden or another Democrat….
Donald Trump the ‘great’ deal maker has made few if any in actuality….
His ‘get everybody to pay’ has fallen flat…..
President Trump said Tuesday that a new trade deal with China might not come until after the 2020 elections, a significant departure from more than a year of trying to exert pressure on the world’s second-largest economy.
His comments were the latest in a series of rapidly evolving, and sometime contradictory, strategic shifts. Less than two months ago, he announced that a huge crackdown against China was imminent. On Tuesday, he suggested that further action could be more than a year away, and everything could change based on whether he is reelected.
In a series of tweets, Trump accused China of delaying negotiations, which began in earnest last December. Even as Trump’s chief trade advisers resumed talks in Shanghai, the president’s tweets suggested a deal may be further away than it had seemed in recent months.
“My team is negotiating with them now, but they always change the deal in the end to their benefit,” Trump tweeted. “They should probably wait out our Election to see if we get one of the Democrat stiffs like Sleepy Joe.”
“The problem with them waiting, however, is that if & when I win, the deal that they get will be much tougher than what we are negotiating now . . . or no deal at all,” he tweeted….
Globalism, something Donald Trump is against, is bound to reassert itself when Trump leaves the American Presidency ….It actually hasn’t even stopped despite his efforts….
