The tweet below isn’t comprised of intelligent thought, and it’s not bargaining bluster, either. It’s the ravings of a megalomaniac who has gone off his rocker:
I think that China felt they were being beaten so badly in the recent negotiation that they may as well wait around for the next election, 2020, to see if they could get lucky & have a Democrat win – in which case they would continue to rip-off the USA for $500 Billion a year….
….The only problem is that they know I am going to win (best economy & employment numbers in U.S. history, & much more), and the deal will become far worse for them if it has to be negotiated in my second term. Would be wise for them to act now, but love collecting BIG TARIFFS!
There is scarcely a word in that blizzard of glandularization that points to anything that can be described as rational or “constructive” or that comports with any other part of the hopium vocabulary that has euthanized Wall Street.
