President Trump often praised China on the campaign trail for taking advantage of weak American “leadership” and he did so again in Beijing, He congratulated President XI on trade…
President Trump, speaking in Beijing on his Asian trip was considerate of the hospitality, relationship with President Xi and the cooperation he’s receiving in a variety of areas, including the important and tense matter of North Korea.
President Trump recognizes that much of the inequities between our two nations are simply the result of China acting in their own best interest competing with an America with leadership that was unwilling to put their own nation first. He said, “Both the United States and China will have a more prosperous future if we can achieve a level economic playing field.”
That might have been the point at which some were expecting the attack language from the American President, but it was not to be. Trump said, “Right now, unfortunately, it is a very one-sided and unfair one. But, but, I don’t blame China. After all, who can blame a country for being able to take advantage of another country for the benefit of its citizens?”
President Trump said, “I give China great credit,” turning to acknowledge his host. He continued, “I do blame past administrations for allowing this out of control trade deficit to take place and to grow.
“We have to fix this,” says Trump, “because it just doesn’t work for our great American companies and it doesn’t work for our great American workers. It is just not sustainable.”
In his entire eight years pretending he was an American ‘president,’ Hussein Obama never once made such comments, let alone on another nation’s soil and particularly not on Chinese soil. His style was to apologize for America and the concept of American exceptionalism and to offer concessions at our expense.
Now we’ve got a President that has earned the respect of the Chinese leader and others around the globe, one who doesn’t grovel or apologize for excellence. He’s a real man and a real President, one who had stairs brought out to his plane in Beijing instead of being disrespected by being forced by the Chinese President to exit like bird droppings under the tail on his own.
