    While Trump blathers and his supporters get delirious, Trump has imported egg on his face as the trade deficit keeps growing,

    What is worse is that Donald Trump is damaging brand America as consumers around the world are starting to actively avoid American products.

    Donald Trump is selling steaming brown nuggets to his delirious supporters and they're begging for more.

    Could you explain the reasoning that you used to come to that ridiculous conclusion?

    Anyone who isn't blinded by their devotion to Trump could see that he was going to play trade chicken with China.

    What he lacked the fundamental capacity to understand was that this is an asymmetrical trade relationship: The Chinese government can get away with letting many of their people suffer far longer and significantly more than an American President can. So, quite possibly, they'll bide their time to see what happens in 2020 while also dragging Trump along. Or, they'll let Trump cave on demands out of political/electoral desperation. Either way, they have more control over this situation that he has.

    My guess is that none of this will register with you. I'm fine with that.

    That's your TDS talking.

    More TDS.

    Trump told you that we have an asymmetrical trade relationship with China over and over again, jackass.

    You TDS afflicted jerks are pathetic.

    Did he? Can you provide a link? I am very interested in what he believes he is accomplishing because it seems his policies are damaging to the US position in the world and here at home.
