To demonstrate what strange political times we’re living in, think about the following – POTUS Donald Trump quietly had a very warm and productive meeting with the President of China.
That’s right, quietly. In the wake of military conflict in Syria, Susan Rice, the exploding Obamacare/HUD scandal and other stories, the media hasn’t paid a lot of attention to the U.S.-Chinese”unofficial summit” at Mar-a-Lago.
But that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a rousing – and shocking – success. After spending month after month on the campaign trail talking tough about China, it feels like Trump may have been setting the Chinese up psychologically for this moment.
A report in Breitbart News quotes the POTUS as saying he was “energized” by the meeting, and that the 2 sides made “tremendous progress” on key issues. “I believe lots of very potentially bad problems will be going away,” he said, calling it a tremendous honor to host President Xi of China.
I think…we are going to have a very, very great relationship and I look very much forward to it,” Trump told Xi during dinner.
