Yes, he abides by the One China presently, it isn’t set in stone. Trump is only 6 months in, we haven’t seen the last of this issue.
Trump isn’t a populist, others trying to understand him and failing to do so have put that label on him, but he hasn’t put that label on himself. He is willing to take on the professional elites and undo the damage Obama has done in socializing and Europizing us, and the people didn’t have faith anyone else could.
Trump hasn’t called the Constitution a disaster, you’re exaggerating or misunderstanding something, I don’t know what you’re referring to.
I totally understand international relations and foreign policy as Obama sees it, and as Trump, Reagan, and others see it, American, British, or other.
Trade has already been disrupted very much when the dollar sank under Bush. The trade dynamic is very, very different since 2000. You don’t understand how much more disruptive China would feel it much more than the US. The Communist Party has to keep the rural people occupied with foreign factories or risk a revolution against them. China is very aware of economic realities.
Yes, it may take years to get a factory up, but not decades. Economics works that way. Economic chaos often results in the near-term but sews itself up as economic dynamics work together to bring balance. I wish Trump would make chaos by raising interest rates to 5% as quickly as possible. Then the chaos caused by market forces would all be contained in one year and very rapidly, instead of 5 years to correct the market. Because I want to see good economics now, not 5 years down the road.
