    China Vs. Fatboy

    What are the factors that will decide Trump's trade war with China? They haven't bought soybeans off us in 8 months and seem to have found plenty on the world market. I think they've made the calculation that Trump will be defeated in another year & a half, and that any kind of hit they're taking (since we all know that "largely" they are paying the tariffs, right? At least, many people are saying that...) will be temporary -- and that they'll be in a stronger position on the other side.

    You'll know China is serious when they find reason to rescind Ivanka's trademarks...

    I think Trump needs a trade deal more than the Chinese. So all they have to do is not make one.

    You have not yet had a female president. Wait till you have one and then bring this all back up.

    I thought "Fatboy" was Kim.
    What happened to "Dotard"?

    FATBOY it is. Trump deserves EXACTLY what he hands out to others. No respect and in the place of respect, taunting nicknames.

    Yeah, dotard has a quaint, authoritative weight to it -- you can imagine Charles Laughton calling someone a heinous dotard.
