    Why couldn't the moron approach China with our allies behind us instead of making enemies of them and going it alone?......

    Probably because our ALLIES were getting a favorable DEAL from China in the first place.
    Did you know that...
    A Jeep Wrangler can cost $30,000 more in China than in the United States — and the reasons illustrate a growing point of tension between the two countries.
    Manufactured in Toledo, Ohio, he Rubicon edition of the Wrangler has a suggested retail price of $40,530 in the United States.
    But in China, the same vehicle would set a buyer back by a hefty $71,000, mostly because of taxes that Beijing charges on every car, minivan and sport utility vehicle

    The allies were against fairer trade also.
    Not so now, as he did a deal with The EU and Mexico.

    That's an interesting, and self serving definition of "friend".

    What the fuck is that supposed to mean? A friend is someone who you are close to. A friend is someone whos funeral you go to. He did not say that he lost hundreds of acquaintances, He said that he lost friends . Stop defending this miserable lying piece of shit.

    I've lost people whom I considered friends and not attended their funerals.


    Some of my coworkers, I've been friendly enough that I would call them friends, but we don't hang out, and I would not go their funerals.


    Seems likely that he is talking about people he was somewhat friendly with, perhaps slightly exaggerating the level of friendliness.


    Hardly worthy of "evil".

    That's an annual number, dope. Trump is using quarterly numbers.

    They did negotiate. It's called the TPP.

    Trump fired the first salvos.
