    Tell you what. How about you explain how our previous trade with China was so beneficial for most Americans?

    China a counterbalance to Putin. That is like having Stalin defend you from Hitler. Good luck. If you think China treated their own people bad wait till Europe is their bitch.
    Corruption should be looked into by anyone in a free country without fear of consequences.

    It's almost as if alienating all of our allies has consequences or something.
    What big pledge to reduce emissions is china prepared to enact. I would love to see china cripple their economy to sppease the climate alarmists.

    But I think we're probably going to need a more stable trade policy before we're taken seriously.
    Tell it to congress. They need to ratify the trade deals.

    We over here know well the ideology of the Putin-Trump Rowers so thx anyway.

    Making China and Russia Great Again.

    While Trump & Rowers isolate and wilt the USA on the proverbial vine.

    The understanding between Beijing and Moscow is that Putin gets Europe-Atlantic to share with Beijing where they get Asia-Pacific to share with Moscow. Trump meanwhile makes North Korea great for the first time.

    South Korea with Japan bow to Beijing, Moscow, Pyongyang while Trump & Rowers put the 7th Fleet to San Diego and off the border with Mexico instead of based in Japan.

    Australia has already said no to joining the US in the South China Sea and it looks increasingly like Europe will concede it to Beijing.

    I'd suppose the PLA Navy will be sharing the Med with Russia and Turkey soon after. Yet anyone over there or anywhere who believes US armed forces generals and admirals will be saluting Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump and saying "Yes, sir," would be dead wrong.

    Not for nothing but France has a history of doing buisiness with bad actors and has been caught violating sanctions to do so. This isnt something new for France.

    Let me see if I understand this, the EU is going to turn to the most aggressive country in Asia as a defense partner? Its going to turn to the largest polluter on the planet for environmental partnership?

    Seems to be a cart before the horse story.

    We need trade, but not at the expense of our workers.

    Let me ask YOU a question...

    Why is a base corvette more expensive than a Porsche 911 in Germany, but not in the US, even though the 911 costs the same in the US when accounting for exchange rates?
    Because US car standards are different than the EU and most of the rest of the world, so the Corvette has to be retrofitted to meet international standards. That is most of the price increase.
