Here’s what Trump doesn’t understand about international trade; tariffs, duties, civil rights, irony and everything else. Lashing out at China during the campaign, he said “China is raping us.” That’s pretty hard to walk back, unless you’re a guy who thinks he can walk up a country and grab its pussy. But China has been doing this business thing for 2500 years, and they’ve seen plenty of idiots like Trump. Unlike us, they play the long game. They are patient, and usually prevail. Bottom line? They will act in their own interest, and Trump somehow will personally benefit. So maybe Trump isn’t stupid. But he’s not an American.
