Mafia Don Twits another tantrum ahead of crucial trade talks

2 days before the crucial trade talks between China and the USA(the 2 largest economies in the world), "Mafia Don"(ald) T-rump threw another Twitter tantrum, by threatening to charge 10% - 25% tariffs on $200 Billions' worth of imports from China. This additional gouging would be on top of last year's unilateral tariff on $50 Billions' worth of Chinese goods coming into this country. But really, what kind of lunatic would poison the mood of these delicate negotiations--practically at the eleventh hour--by publicly humiliating the incoming Chinese delegation? The world has rarely seen such a blustering buffoon, at least not since the days of the maniacal Idi Amin of Uganda back in the last century!
So far, at least, the Chinese side is taking the high road. They did not back out of tomorrow's talks, and didn't even show displeasure by downgrading the head of their delegation. But clearly, Beijing has seen the writing on the wall: the Yankee hegemon has proven to be an unreliable negotiating partner--evidenced by T-rump officials' running a scurrilous and one-sided public accusation that China has "reneged" on previous promises, while not able to reveal a single specific point in which Beijing has been shown to have backtracked!

The truth of the matter is, the corrupt and crumbling USA regime of T-rump is desperately trying to distract the Public from focusing on its many domestic scandals and transgressions, such as the refusal to air the full and unredacted version of the Mueller Report and Donald's refusal to turn over copies of his IRS returns(in which he took over a Billion $ of business "losses" as deductions on his income!) Gee, if T-rump really lost all that money, he must be the world's most incompetent LOSER in all his shady business deals. But then, what do you expect from the "leader" of the Clunkered and Collapsing Capitalist "Exceptional" regime??
