Trump says what he thinks the people in the same room with him want to hear.

As soon as they are no longer in the same room with him, he doesn't care what they think of him.

This might be useful in real estate negotiations and on reality TV, but it is not how you develop international relationships. It's also not how you govern.

Good thing the Chinese won't hear what he said.

How have people not figured that out?  Trump gives speeches that are like a bad wrestling promoter.

Because he doesn't like to confront people.
So much for the tough negotiator.

I would love for a world leader, on camera straight up tell trump 'I heard you were talking shiat, you wanna say that to my face' and just watch him crumble.

It's not a lie if you believe it. Or if you run your mouth constantly without thinking and aren't even aware of what you're saying.

WHEW!

And here I thought after those election losses, the Republicans MIGHT have managed to rein him in, especially after that SHOCKINGLY Presidential comment about North Korea.

FTA: The US leader then went off-script to confront a man who was speaking audibly during the address and suggested he may be from a country that was cheating America."Funny, they must be from one of the beneficiaries," Trump said, laughing. "What country to do you come from, sir?" he added rhetorically.

So presidential. What a tremendous douche trump is
 
2017-11-10 04:08:23 PM  
Trump being unpredictable.  Trump has no problem with free trade agreements.  He just wants all such agreements to be bilateral and not part of a larger multi-nation agreement like NAFTA or TPP.  He would probably be against the EU.

The Shart of the Deal

LOL, I'm pretty sure the Chinese saw this coming. You don't think any of them is dumb enough to believe anything that piece of shiat said to them, do you?
 
2017-11-10 04:09:53 PM  
Big deal. Trump privately told the Chinese that he would play ball but due to the current domestic situation, he would have to continue the inflammatory rhetoric. So he says glowing praise about the Chinese when in China, which is widely played on Chinese media, then goes right back to attacking them publicly when he is elsewhere. He knows his base won't care about flip flops. Now they can craft a deal with is just like the TPP but without any of the meager environmental protection and worker rights that used to be in the agreement. Trump can claim it is tough on China based on his grandstanding, the Chinese can spin it locally as fair to them, and we all get screwed in the end.

If only there were some type of partnership we could enter into with these countries in southeast Asia where a powerful and stable trading partner interested in exports transiting the Pacific would have an interest in preventing the Chinese from interfering with regional trade.

If only

On the campaign: "China is raping the US."

In China: "The US was totally asking for it. Did you see what she was wearing?"

I'm sure while he was there he ordered double the amount of MAGA hats to wear.

International trade relations are like business-to-business sales relationships.  You try to hammer out a scenario that is a win-win for both sides because your ultimate goal is a streamlined, mutually beneficial relationship that allows both of you to prosper.  Donald Trump has never engaged in this type of sales.

Donald Trump has engaged in sales related to condos, fake universities, casinos, land lousy steaks.  These are the kind of "deals" where one side tries to scam the other as much as they possibly can because at the conclusion of the deal, the relationship is over.

Many of Donald Trump's voters only know the latter type of sales relationship.  They know it from buying cars.  They think that Donald Trump will be their used car salesman who will totally scam all these other countries and those countries will just sit there and take it for the next X number of years.  This is all they know.

It also isn't effective when every word you say is reported on internationally.

I thought Trump was allergic to Vietnam because of bone spurs or something.
 
2017-11-10 04:37:47 PM  
As ALL conservatives say "Trump say is like it is" except for that 100% insincerity, pathological lying part.
You have to hand it to Republicans, they have brought hypocrisy to levels beyond anything seen in human history.

At this point, any word a Republican uses is to tell another lie.  For example, if they use the letter "I", it is probably Soviet troll, so not even an American.  They have added another level to lying.  Even their single letters are used to lie.  Jesus must be extra proud of every single one of them.
 
2017-11-10 04:44:53 PM  
Trump doesn't know how international trade works AT ALL.

He's only saying what is immediately politically expedient. He'll say something different tomorrow to another audience.

It's called "Object Permanence (or in this case the lack thereof)." I didn't think it applied to abstract ideas, but apparently in some cases it does. He literally doesn't remember what he said on a given topic or subject in the past. Nor does he care.
