How about the president do something novel like his job instead of continuing to act like a spoilt 6 year old?

It's a risky strategy since Trump himself has faced questions about his approach to Beijing.

Trump and his PR forces (WH, Fox, etc etc .) must be afraid people will continue to question his and Ivanka's business relationships with members of the Chinese Communist Party.

Our internal data shows that Joe Biden’s softness on China *

What is obvious to all is how easy it is for Trump and his media, including US and 'foreign' social media, to make statement's including terms like 'our internal data'.

Trump and his media know their 'poorly educated' and true believing followers will not question what they say, just parrot.

The internet provides despots even more ways to spread 'misinformations', often including imaginary data, to larger audiences than ever seen before.

Biden, who said last year that China was no threat, would be a disaster.

As much as I despise trump, after watching Biden boasting on video about “being in the pool with young children, and getting them to run their hands up his legs so they could watch his hairs become erect”, I realize the world is doomed.

Trump supporters here prior to Jan - "It's the economy, stupid"....

Yep, it sure is - and it's a smoking hole - the worst point reduction on the Dow in history, 22 million unemployed - worse since the Great Depression, negative GDP for 2020...

But that's not the worst - the worst is over 45K deaths (so far) because of his incompetence...

That's what Americans will remember in Nov...

That attack won’t work because Ivanka and Trump both canceled their contracts, so an attack on why” they can counterattacks and say, “we did shut it down.” That won’t help the left much. 

Trump and his media know their 'poorly educated'

The more so called smart liberals in Washington utter that sentence, the more it helps Trump, keep it coming. Hillary found out the hard way.

Blame China, Russia and Iran for the disinformation.

I prefer my leaders to be more clueless than myself. Make me feel good.

@bas4f cause Ivanka and Trump both canceled their contracts,

I haven't read that. If I'm wrong, please provide a link saying both have cancelled their contracts. I googled and found nothing. Should I use Yandex?

Glad to see posters acknowledge Russia spreads disinformation. Even some Republicans have come around to believing US intelligence agencies' findings and not the Kremlin's, like so many in the global far right

we always knew Russia spreads disinformation. Especially in things you claimed were "true" and "proven"

Footnotes were declassified from a watchdog report that found that the F.B.I. had reason to open the Russia inquiry but made errors in seeking approval to wiretap a former Trump adviser.

Of course its behind a pay wall because it exonerates Trump.

strangely, I havent heard even a peep about Ukraine since Joe was given the nomination. remember years ago,I mean weeks ago, when it was the most important thing, like, ever?

Do we not care about that anymore? I imagine it will come back up once coronavirus is out of the news.

They did, if they didn’t, we would know about it given the relentless and fruitless effort the radical liberals are on with their jihad against President. Try again.

Glad to see posters acknowledge Russia spreads disinformation.

They always did, but the real enemy was China, always was and always will be.

Even some Republicans have come around to believing US intelligence agencies' findings and not the Kremlin's, like so many in the global far right.

Now let’s hope the liberals and Biden will wake up (especially Biden..literally) and acknowledge China was never our friend or ally.

Donny who said, 3 months ago, that China is doing a fine job in containing the virus, has already bought disaster to America .

Ivanka maybe - I heard her company went bankrupt - Like Father Like Daughter!

But Donnie - nope - still being made in Chinese sweatshop factories by what one Trump supporter here said was "slave labor". If you say otherwise, prove it...

I really dont know...if he was seen as unprepared for the job in 2012 when he was VP, I dont really know how we can consider modern day Biden to be prepared now. I dont know if Bin Laden is the one to trust in an assessment of someone, but certainly interesting he felt this way

Hunter Biden to Leave Chinese Company Board, Addressing Appearance of a Conflict

6 months later:

The "Hunter" related issues are legion and will surely be a line of attack.

@bas4fwake up (especially Biden..literally) and acknowledge China was never our friend or ally.

I don't recall many ever saying China was a US 'ally'.

I have read many American corporations, and especially American corporate execs plus stock holders around the globe, have benefitted financially from their numerous business dealings with China.

China has probably been most beneficial to the US and the globe's richest, the so called 'elite' (e.g. Trump's fellow rich). Never an ally to the US in any historical sense.

I have low regard for China and what they've done, but it should be remembered the globe's elite are the ones who've helped make China the power it is. The globe's elite have sacrificed their respective nation's workforces to do so. They deserve blame. Trump among them.

Yeah, so prove it.

I don't recall many ever saying China was a US 'ally'. 

In some ways they are, but geopolitically they are also our biggest adversary as Trump has stated it before he became president and that he called the Chinese out for creating this virus answer it back in their face even though, the radical left media machine tried to scold him, as well as when he put in the travel restrictions.

I have read many American corporations, and especially American corporate execs plus stock holders around the globe, have benefitted financially from their numerous business dealings with China. 

That has nothing to do with what they are, but that in itself is part of the problem.

China has probably been most beneficial to the US and the globe's richest, the so called 'elite' (e.g. Trump's fellow rich). Never an ally to the US in any historical sense. 

As we have made China rich as well, thanks to us. it has also been the country that has undermined, stabbed the US in the back and tried to do everything in their power to internally destroy the US

I have low regard for China

Well, we agree on something.

Putting the country first, isn't that what he says "America First".

That’s exactly what he’s doing.

The playbook was written months ago.

The Democrats have not been following a playbook written 1,262 days ago?
