    I think he wins the red states regardless, but I think Wall St and recession fears made him blink. I'm not sure what we're fighting with Jina about at this point. Sure, its IP. But I haven't seen anything on the current status of exactly what Jina might agree to, and what we're demanding. Apparantly we were close to agreement a few months back, but then Jina hard liners pulled back an offer.

    but it's possible the dems could pick off Iowa or even Ohio. And Wisconsin is "big league."

    If China thinks they have their hands full in Hong Kong wait until 1.3 billion Chinamen have to do without soy sauce. It's gonna get ugly. Viva Trump.

    The protesters ending flights out of Hong Kong airport is only one arm of this umbrella movement. On the streets, its simultaneous formations are an impressive form of guerrilla strategy. Go Trump.

    Even while Trump is using his fake Japanese accent to beg Japan to buy American agriculture, he is still on the side of China.

    Trump can’t be on the side of democracy and freedom overseas if he’s not on the side of democracy and freedom in this country.

    Makes no sense.

    Besides, how could he be pro freedom and democracy and still want to be president for life?

    Never expect the bed wetters to root against China.

    Gawd, just tell me when it's over.

    There will be two parts to any deal, if and when it does happen. First, the initial elation that the damage is over, then a close look at the actual deal itself. There's no way to know how that will go. All we can do is hope for the best. A "deal" doesn't necessarily mean a "good" deal.

    Better deals
    Right now we're getting screwed.

    I still have issues with folks that cheer the demise of America every chance they get.

    Well, such is the behavior of ideologues.

    These are asymmetrical negotiations - China has more flexibility in letter their people suffer than does an American President. Plus, there is trade and there is theft, and that's damn near impossible to enforce.

    Anyway, we hope for the best.
