The Chinese government is not our friend, as described here. Yet American consumers keep enabling them by buying their inexpensive products. Our government officials have accepted large cash donations from China 🇨🇳, so they are complicit. We run a ridiculously high trade deficit with them, which also enables them.
They are not working in America’s best interests, so lets stop enabling them.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The dinner table diplomacy that Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping of China conducted over the weekend produced something as vague as it was valuable: an agreement to keep talking.
