Why 2017 is the wrong year for Trump to mess with China
President-elect Donald Trump has recently recruited a couple of China hawks onto his trade team potentially provoking the nation yet again at a less than ideal time.
That’s because China is on the cusp of a leadership change that may make it particularly sensitive to provocations according to the latest report from the Eurasia Group a political risk consultancy headed by Ian Bremmer.
New party leadership will be chosen at the Communist Party’s 19th National Congress this fall a transition that Bremmer calls “one of the most complex events since the beginning of China’s reform era [which started in 1978].”
Chinese president Xi Jinping “will be extremely sensitive to external challenges to his country’s interests at a time when all eyes are on his leadership” Bremmer writes. “The Chinese president will be more likely than ever to respond forcefully to foreign policy challenges.”

F### China. Its time to build America to the super power it once was and we are going to stop bowing down to other countries. The reason we are so far in debt is we keep bailing everyone out when it has been us who needs the fixing. If China steps out of line we have just has much sanctions intel and so forth as they do. That candle burns at both ends. We will not live in fear. Those days of being p###ies are over!

Trump has pulled off the greatest con in history. Trumpians ! The party is over. You have elected the dumbest person possible. These are side effects you can expect when Trump is sworn into office. Some of us have these symptoms NOW ! R26; irritability R26; lack of appetite R26; lightheadedness R26; loss of interest or pleasure R26; relaxed and calm R26; shakiness and unsteady walk R26; sleepiness or unusual drowsiness R26; slurred speech R26; tiredness R26; trouble concentrating R26; trouble in speaking R26; trouble performing routine tasks R26; trouble sleeping R26; unsteadiness trembling or other problems with muscle control or coordination R26; unusual tiredness or weakness R26; Abdominal or stomach pain R26; blurred vision R26; body aches or pain R26; burning crawling itching numbness prickling "pins and needles or tingling feelings R26; changes in behavior R26; chills R26; clay-colored stools R26; confusion about identity place and time R26; cough R26; dark urine R26; decrease in frequency of urination R26; shivering R26; shortness of breath R26; sneezing R26; sore throat R26; sticking out of the tongue R26; sweating R26; swollen joints R26; talkativeness R26; tightness in the chest R26; trouble in breathing speaking. Other than that I feel fine. To hell with Trump. America is going to be run by Fat Old Senile Very Rich White Men ! Yeah ! Women Blacks Latinos Gays and poor people are screwed. It's one big step for the rich and 100 steps backwards for the rest of of us Humpty Trumpty sat on a wall - Humpty Trumpty will take a big fall - all the peoples horses and all the peoples men didn't want to put Trumpty back together again ! Do your best to prove the truth that the election was manipulated . Trumpty is not qualified to be POTUS. If you think Dick Cheney cleaned up with Haliburton during the G.W. Bush years ? Trump is going to clean your clock when in office. Your going to see clothing manufactures stop putting pockets in product because nobody is going to have anything to put in them. Trump is a dangerous person that is going to come back to haunt everyone

Fake News! Fake News! Get your buttwipe fake news! Barry the Traitor is the one that saber-rattles interferes in other nations' internal politics and generally embarrasses the USA. President Trump will get respect and other nations will accept that he has to fix the mess of the Affirmative Action failure POTUS. They know that President Trump is not going to throw Americans or American jobs on the scrap heap to make them happy. The Snowflake Fake News Cartel has not made that connection yet -- they are all good with sacrificing Americans for a globalist / socialist agenda that can never work.

But the right year for Obama to provoke Russia? FYI: China taxes our good coming into China it called making it a fair playing field. Either China cancels their tariffs or they get it added to their goods. Why these one sided stupid trade deals are we idiots? About time a businessman is in the white house.

译者注："Love Trumps Hate"是希拉里支持者喊出的一句双关语，直译为“爱战胜恨”，也可以解读为“凡是特朗普恨的，我们都喜欢”。

Oh my the leftist gibberish is at it again. China is running a huge trade surplus with the USA. all that money being pumped into China means it does not have to tax its people to do what the government wants to do at home and aboard. if we cut off the flow of dollars to ChinaChina will be in big trouble while the USA can buy all its junk from other suppliers if we do not make it here.

Trump will destroy America if the US congress can't control his mind. He will bring back " Great Depression" because of his big ego. His erratic attitude might lead to a war w/ other countries or America could be isolated itself.!!!

The media calls it "messing with China". Trump calls it not being pushed around and threatened by our enemies. Something the spineless Obama has allowed for far too long.
