    Consider yourself lucky then. You'll not only have the Russians on your side in 2020, but the Chinese doing everything they can to prevent Trump from being elected.

    See how that works? :laughing0301:

    The key component to an agreement like this is exactly what will be the consequences WHEN China starts cheating on the agreement. If that is not clear and very punitive, it would be foolish to accept it from a State with no credibility whatsoever.

    I certainly do notice those fluctuations but I think the big problem is that China is using the Japanese model of development and appears to be entering the stagnation phase. I don't think that China can deliver on the deals they are offering. The politburo admits to four GDPs of debt and that is suspected to be very lowball.

    Where are the details? Bloomberg is simply reporting what it was told but I doubt that the Chinese can deliver.

    Their LFF is contracting and their skilled workers are headed to Aus. NZ and Can

    The Trump administration is still working out the details with the Chinese.

    As to when and how they cheat that will be defined by the loopholes our negotiators do not recognize as a loophole.

    Has anyone ever noticed that when Trump talks about our trade deal with China, he only tells us how great it is gonna be and we are going to do so well, but he never provides any details as to how he's gonna get that great deal?

    I'm beginning to think that Trump may be one of the worst deal makers ever.

    Yeah, all the left can do is whine about 'lack of details' because TDSers can never let Trump win.

    Who needs 'details' when Trump's strategy is working so well?

    Ask the farmers and furloughed workers how good his strategy is.
