Trump’s Heart is Clarified

Postby KeithE » Tue May 15, 2018 8:13 am

Many were surprised yesterday that Trump expressed support for a failing Chinese telecommunication company ZTE.

Trump tweet May 13 10:01 EDT
President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast. Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!


ZTE has been accused of spying on Americans. Chinese-authored spyware found on more than 700 million Android phones
According to the Chinese startups’ official website, Adups’ clients include two of China’s largest cellphone manufacturers: ZTE and Huawei.


Loved Stephen Colbert’s take on this last night at about 3:50- 6:00 minutes into this. He wants Facebook (an American company ) to do it.

Whatever ever happened to his ‘China is stealing our jobs’, ’Secure America’, and 'America First' mantras?

Well today we find out why:

Trump Orders Help For Chinese Phone-Maker After China Approves Money For Trump Project

A mere 72 hours after the Chinese government agreed to put a half-billion dollars into an Indonesian project that will personally enrich Donald Trump, the president ordered a bailout for a Chinese-government-owned cellphone maker.


How long can we let this Trump First tactics persist?

Surprised? If anyone is surprised, they've been buried under a rock on the moon, or they've been listening to extremist right wing media, both of which produce the same results.

He's a Putin puppet, which is why Kim Jong Un has taken a sudden reversal from being an American-hating murdering dictator worse than Hitler to making gestures for peace. On the verge of a summit that has at least damped down talk of nuclear holocaust, the Trumpster makes the stupidest, most irrational move of all time and opens the door for another rogue nation, Iran, to go ahead with its plans to build a nuclear weapon. Now he's protecting jobs in China, and lining his own pocket in the process. I think the tail feathers will get clipped pretty good in November, whether the GOP ever gets the conscience it will need to handle what will come out of the investigations or not.

But why would this surprise anyone? This is who Donald Trump is, and always has been, and his record speaks for itself. Whining about Hillary Clinton is a pitiful excuse, and willful ignorance, is invalidated by facts, and is not the point. It's really just buyer's remorse as far as I am concerned.

I am not surprised at this, really, but I must admit I didn't see this coming. I thought China's help on North Korea was sufficient motive, but no, there had to be some personal greed involved, too, or Trump might have felt a compulsion to renege and keep the conflict going.
