Trump General Discussion III

Continue, with a few reminders:

-No personal attacks
-Report offensive posts (I've been busy helping family move the last few days - an email notification when the sexism and racism showed its face again would've been nice)

So the Taiwan thing may have been more about Trump wanting a Hotel than any sort of diplomacy

Maybe he was baited into it. Who knows. I don't think he's dirt stupid but I do think he's ignorant and he could easily be baited into that were they to have pet his ego.

I had missed this, but Trump has investment in Carrier's parent company? So he's basically subsidizing a company whose stock he owns. Nice.

The bowing, kow-towing Presdent is yesterday.

The supreme leader does make a good point. Can't argue that. Though of course, fair logic doesn't mean he isn't doing it with ulterior motives. Granted, China and I think the same thing actually happened.

The current president was able to sell billions in arms to Taiwan.

These people are wilfully ignorant of the intricacies of diplomacy and geopolitics.

Do you not know how any of this works or do you simply just not care?
