LEARNING TO LOVE TRUMP
Our 3 largest trading partners are learning to love Donald Trump. China, which for centuries, was used to bribing venal politicians, has learned. along with Canada and Mexico, how easy it is to get along with President Trump despite his insufferable egotism. All China had to do, to tame the paper tiger, was to pat Donald on the head, saying "good boy" and give Ivanka a few trinkets, namely some patents, which cost the Chinese treasury nothing and can be revoked at will. Canada and Mexico can just say a kind word to the Donald to accomplish the same thing, relying on Republican advisors to remind Donald that a trade war with them would throw the U.S. economy into an immediate recession, from which even ladders, that could be used to scale high walls, could not get us out.
