Eventually, it's going to dawn on everyone that Donald Trump's China crusade was an end in itself, not a means towards achieving a set of concrete policy objectives.

A wholesale surrender might be enough to ensure that Trump wouldn't slap the country with still more tariffs, but even if Xi were to bend the knee, existing tariffs would likely remain in place

  1. While I agree with much of this, the silence from democrats speaks to there being a greater concern than that which is available to the public eye.

    1. Yeah, I mean there are obviously legitimate concerns. But as I hope came through, it’s hard to take Trump completely seriously because i) he’s using this as leverage in the trade dispute, and ii) he’s crazy.

      if any other president would have done this, I imagine it would have gotten across-the-board support, but then again, if this were any other president, it would have been carried out and communicated in a completely different fashion and it wouldn’t be going on against the backdrop of an increasingly ridiculous trade war

  2. Since the first day that Trump took office, his “policies” primarily in the form of executive orders, like his tweets, have been nothing but a re-election campaign to show him as a tough leader.
