He's very grateful to China for approving so many trademarks for Princess Ivanka's fashion line.

China is very grateful to Trump for helping to make them a world superpower while the US regresses. Trump is easily played and the Chinese are certainly adept at it. Give him a parade, flatter him to the max and they get whatever they want.

Yes, it's true that the Chinese like Donald Trump. They find him funny, like Americans once found Benny Hill funny. They find his hair funny, they find his orange skin tone funny, they find his obesity funny, they find his brashness funny...and for some reason, they find his overlong neck ties extremely hilarious.

They also like his daughter, Ivanka, what with her being a blonde westerner with expensive tastes and an extensive wardrobe. She's Barbie doll come to life for her.

And Ivanka's daughter, Arabella? They swoon over how she performs on cue for President Xi.

no, not because of funny, but because of straight talking. If you don't like something, just say you don't like it, feel free to make fun of it, instead of hiding it with a smile like a politician, and this is why he is popular.

his Muslim ban is popular among the Chinese, because most Chinese dislike Muslims, (you know most Chinese are racists LOL). They don't care about political correctness.

Now he promises to move toward a merit based immigration system from a family union based on, which is bound to be popular among the Chinese too.

But in all honesty, I was really looking forward to a 45% import tax on China and see how things unfold. That would be interesting. Unfortunately he is not doing it.

The problem is that most tech companies have spoken against him. Elon Musk (possibly the greatest man alive) left his cabinet because he found him to be a fool. It doesn’t help that Neil deGrasse Tyson, Tim Cook, Sundar... have criticised most of his political blunders.
When the academic community turns against you, then there is something wrong.

The Chinese people probably do find him amusing. It can be fun to laugh at a high-profile idiot as long as he is the leader of some other country. As for the government, I’m sure they appreciate the damage that Trump is doing to the US, and have figured out how easy it is to manipulate an insecure egomaniac.

How is that Trumpís doing? Heís been in office for under a year and passed no legislation. On the other hand, the US is more divided than it has been in a long time, and the new presidentís approval rating hovers around 37-38%. China views the US as an adversary so its leaders would naturally view the deterioration of the political order here as a positive factor. I donít blame them for this - self-interest drives all nations.

I'm not a Trump fan, but I can tell you that the average person in China doesn't actually care enough to really laugh at him, and his gaffes and blunders don't get played it in the media like they are in the US. Most people just know he's rich and old, and they think that he says things that may **** people off, but are true. They think he's tough on things, which they admire (the West is an outlier globally in that most of the rest of the world looks up to strongman leaders, for better or worse).

The average person in China pays little attention to politics because the average person in China can't affect politics in any meaningful way. Social and political movements that aren't endorsed by the Party run the risk of being shut down and the founders punished. People here focus more on work and family, which is something that I think the vocal and disruptive professional protest class in America should try, since all they've managed to do is help make America more fragmented and discordant.
