  1. China has made cyberwarefare attacks on the US; Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman were hacked years ago, in a case that can't be chocked up to China's usual Kleptocracy. Their corporate espionage and IP theft, pales in comparison to building weaponized island bases in international waters… for the sole purpose of hijack trade routes and shipping lanes.
    This is the kind of stuff China does:

    As a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, they should be an example of international cooperation… not piracy and imperialism 🖕🇨🇳

  2. So the done trade deal the market has rallied on 25 times now was no deal. Trump should say "Forget it" to China (and do the US and the world a favor). And I am not sure Trump really wants a deal. China is a polished North Korea and all they do is break deals. Do NOT rollback any tariffs. Reconsider doing any trade deals at all – why support a North Korea regime.

  3. Trump is manipulating the stock market. Been doing it since he took office. He says or tweets something suggesting deal w China. Market goes up. One to a few days later he says or tweets opposite. Market drops. He did this re: Boeing when he took office. Dissed them, suggesting loss of Fed govt contracts. Then reverses position & hands them huge, no bid contracts & puts Boeing exec as head of FAA. Their stock goes WAY up. Investigation needs to be done of Trump, his family & associates re: their stock trading patterns since he took office.

  4. Trump's been saying, "we wanna make a deal, we'll see," his entire presidency. What's the "greatest negotiator in the history of the world," waiting for. Trump's not stringing us along on this too, like his phantom Healthcare Plan he's been waiting to tell us for almost four years. The conned are always the last to know, like the RedHats.

  5. In order for him to continue his Fake News BS, he has to denounce everything that is reported. Of course, its true like everything else. Have to call this fake news so, all the other stuff has to be fake too. Jeez

  6. He does not know what to do, and suspect its getting harder to find suckers to front for him. Political poison. China might get tired of the games. Hope not cause that would be another trump desaster.

  7. He doesn't like to talk about things until they happen? Since when? Mr. Threat here, gets off on saying what will happen, especially when it has NO CHANCE of going his way. There are close to 13,000 times that he talked about things that weren't happening. 13,000 things that have been labelled as lies.
