    1. Don’t forget to mention Chinese supertrawlers stripping ocean fisheries. But then, can you blame the Chinese for wanting to feed their citizens?

What is trump willing to let China get away with?? Clamping down on Hong Kong and not saying anything?? How about Taipei?? Relaxing his view on Huawei??
