China betting on Trump losing in 2020 as they play ‘long game’ in trade war: report

Published

on

According to a report on the ongoing trade war between Donald Trump and China, Bloomberg notes that the Chinese are in no hurry to accede to the president’s demands and would be willing to hold off on a long-term agreement until after the 2020 election in the hope that a Democrat will be in the Oval Office.

As U.S. farmers and manufacturers reel from the lost income due to the tariff war the president started, China’s leaders are preparing for a long battle.

“After Trump escalated his tariff war on Chinese imports earlier this month and blacklisted Chinese telecom giant Huawei Technologies Co., Chinese President Xi Jinping called on citizens to join a ‘new Long March,’ prompting echoes of that call in Chinese state media.”

In a commentary issued on Friday, state-run media outlet Xinhua News Agency stated, “All of the Chinese people are ready to embark on a new ‘Long March’ journey with greater courage and resilience and will never yield to foreign bullying and assault.”

According to Bloomberg, Chinese officials are j keeping a watchful eye on U.S. polls, knowing Trump may need them more than they need him.

“In playing the long game, China may be looking at Trump’s weak poll numbers and trying to wait him out, in the hopes that a Democrat might unseat him in the 2020 election,” the report states, before adding Trump might not see it that way.

“Trump and those close to him see that as a miscalculation, portraying his tough stand on China as a political asset,” the report adds.

How the New York Times creates credibility for Trump

Published

on

There’s a good reason why the Times decided against running on its front page news of the latest woman to accuse the president of rape. The Times still does journalism the way it always has. It gives people in power the never-ending benefit of the doubt.

When you are willing to give people in power the benefit of the doubt no matter how many times they have proven they are unworthy of that benefit, it’s not all that important when the 16th person comes forward credibly to accuse Donald Trump of anything, even if, in the case of columnist E. Jean Carroll, the allegation is rape.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
