Hard to believe Trump would get to this point but then I read that Trump is basically doing nothing as President since he's a loser and feeling that way so he's basically letting departments do what they want like I read that he told Pompeo he can do whatever he wants except starting WWIII. It's funny they paint China so evil yet they always believe China won't react strongly when provoked like Canada kidnapping Meng for Trump's trade war. Or look at Australia doing Trump's dirty work. Pundits are saying China still needs Australia pointing to how minor China's bans are to the over all trade picture for Australia. Then why did they make a big deal over nothing? China accomplished it's mission. If this deal happens, China should start buying from Canada things it got from Australia and let the Australians see how their five eyes ally backstabbed them.
