We could do the Obama, Hillary, Kerry method of first apologize to China then give them exactly what they want at our expense. It's worked so well for the last 25 years, right?
I am sure "the chosen one" will fix all of this with China Just as "the chosen one" got Mexico to pay for the wall.

What followed might have swept away all previous Trumpian benchmarks for incoherence, self-aggrandizement, prevarication and rancor in a presidency that has seemed before to veer loosely along the rails of reason but may never have come quite so close to spectacularly jumping the tracks.

Trump Proclaims Himself The Chosen One In Front Of White House Reporters
It also appears that Donald Trump is finally taking his God complex public. Trump has also tweeted that he loved like the King of Israel and the second coming of God.

Trump said he is the chosen on to take on China. He talked about how the last few presidents should have already have done this, but since they didn't, he is now the chosen one to take on China.

Yep, that's it, but the deranged are further losing their minds over this.
Talking of leaving things out, you conveniently left out that fact that he turned and looked to the sky when he said those words.

When are you guys going to learn that he does this just to mess with you?

This is Trump getting a soundbite, and getting coverage of this issue because he knows your heads will explode when he says things like this, forcing the media to cover it.

Trump has been doing this for 4 years now, one would think you guys would be bright enough to catch on by now.

First of all, the evangelical Christian community believes he is in fact the “chosen one” to end abortion and gay marriage and restore America to being a Christian nation. With that in mind, his base likely fully supports and agrees with him saying he’s the chosen one.

Second of all, if any President or leader for that matter would have said this in pre-Obergefell America people would be calling for his resignation and even talking about the 25th amendment. This would be called blasphemy and he’d be compared to the antichrist. This country has completely lost its mind in its rage.

Why not look at the ones who actually fund the puppets who you vote for? Why do you think the billionaire class spend billions buying the puppets you vote for? Trump is not taking on them. He is empowering the ruling billionaire class. He isnt making sure labor has a seat at the table on trade deals either. Trump is all about enriching his cronies.

Do you fight to get big money out of politics? No? Then how can you complain when the elected reps sell you out?

Yes like we all can get good health Insurance for about the same cost as a cell phone or cable tv bill. I am still waiting. Your chosen one made many promises as well. The difference is that He wasn't mine and neither is Trump. Unlike you I don't worship at the party alter.

We could do negotiations like Obama, Clinton and Bush, it worked so well for the nation. Right? Democrats amaze me. We were sold out by both parties but most especially by Clinton and they still pretend that the democrat party cares about blue collar America. You expect the betrayal by the GOP, their platform is obvious.

How can Anyone say that NAFTA was good for the working class? How can anyone say that our trade agreements with China have been good for the working class? But hey keep it about Trump so you will never have to admit that both parties screwed the working class. Trump is bad, really bad, but why does the left have to take his quotes out of context to make their attack? That is weak at best.

What's really funny about all of this is that Democrats have no one running that is better than Trump. Or who would even tackle the China problem.

Our streets will all look like San Fran, LA, Detroit or Baltimore if left to the Dems to run the country.
