Because they need their $1000 Apple phones made in China.

They're bed mates. While Russia is merely dems scapegoat for Trump, China meddles.

Let me know.
Right? No idea what angle the OP was taking here LOL.

The OP mentions that "the left and the media" are silent on China....well has anyone on the right, including the OP him/herself, said anything about China?

China is kicking Trump's butt right now with this trade war, though. Donny is in over his head and has no idea what he's doing.

Because if liberals did that, then they would be forced to admit that Trump is doing the right thing with China.

Can't have that.

What's Trump doing about Russia? Quite literally, all 17 directors for the various American intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia meddled in our election in 2016, and the FB Director testified before Congress earlier this year saying that he has every reason to believe they will meddle again in 2020.

Is Trump going to do anything to try and stop it? Do you care about that at all? Do you think the Director of the FBI is "fake news?"

Chinese are working hard for world trade and peace - they are not centered on violence.

They have a diverse economy which is headed into the future.

The way I heard it described recently is that all countries have "hardware" and "software". Russia has bad software - that is, the traditions are of squashing the people and stealing their resources...which is on overdrive today.

China is doing a lot of things right and doesn't sit around telling us how they have 5,000 nukes pointed our way. They are quieter (but carry a stick which is large enough) and want to get along with the world.

I hope that helps.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!

No foreign country has any business meddling in our elections. That is tantamount to subjugation. The very possibility enrages me. How dare you even suggest that?

I don't like your inference, you are suggesting that it is ok for Trumpies to root for Russian interference in our free elections because you think non-Trumpies would be ok with it if the tables were reversed. That is childish logic.

Hasn't it ever ... even once ... occurred to you that Trump's complicity in this horrible undermining of our republic is a major reason patriots have learned to oppose Trump? What is wrong with you people?!?

Don't kid yourself. Both Russia and China would love to displace the USA as the dominant power on the globe.

It's just that they have very different strategies to achieve that. Russia has a short-term action plan that includes methods like their Active Measures program, and their recent attacks on our election system.

China may have these efforts underway too, but the difference is that China has a long-term view for world domination. They have 10, 20, and 50 year plans. Willing to bide their time, and willing to let Russia do the heavy lifting and the dirty work in the meantime.
