Disperse with the idea that Donald Trump cares about democracy in Hong Kong
(CNN) Let us disperse with the idea that Donald Trump cares about democracy in Hong Kong.
The US president spent three years stunned by Xi Jinping, and told the Chinese President last year that he would remain silent about Hong Kong protests while they were talking trade. But the coronavirus crisis has quickly re-established the global balance of power – and now Trump has the political incentive to become a tough populist in China that he promised to return in 2016. .
With the fixed world of public health and America’s reputation disturbed by the world’s worst reaction to Covid-19, Beijing witnessed an opening. It returned to the American rhetoric, planted flags everywhere in the South China Sea, brought Hong Kong and exerted diplomatic pressure on Australia.
Meanwhile, the President needs a scapegoat for dealing with the pandemic – and China is the perfect villain in the US election year. This week alone, the United States completely rejected Beijing’s territorial claims in the South China Sea and deprived Hong Kong of its commercial privileges. American friends – like Britain, who have just removed China’s Huawei from their new 5G network – are being forced to choose which side they want to be with.
Trump is not worried about pushing the world’s most important bilateral relationship into stressful years: He does anything good for himself at any given time. But things may not improve if Joe Biden is sworn in January; Anyone who is commander-in-chief, the United States needs a new Chinese policy if it hopes to preserve its power in the Pacific and avoid confronting the new superpower earlier than expected.
The world can find itself in a new geopolitical era when it finally emerges from the pandemic.
Not to deal
Americans who see the President’s latest campaign ads may be scared out of their front door – at least that’s planned at Trump 2020 HQ. The campaign’s new video perfectly encapsulates the emerging topic of the President’s re-bidding bid (“You won’t be safe in America by Joe Biden”) with fire warnings, residential areas. wandering around and a country that lacks law and order – based on Trump’s false claim that the Democrats want to destroy the police force. It was a good taste of the taboo campaign that Trump believed he had to pay to prevent the election from becoming a referendum on how to handle his pandemic.
‘A little weird’
Leading infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Wednesday that the US government’s recent efforts to discredit him seemed “a bit bizarre” and that an op-ed written by presidential adviser Peter Navarro is “a big mistake” for the White House. Speaking to The Atlantic, he said he still speaks with members of the White House coronavirus task force daily – but “my input to the President is now a bit indirect. It’s through the vice president. ”
Is Goya-n crazy?
The Trumps have turned their wild real life into a television ranking since the President descended the golden escalator at Trump Tower 2015. They are now taking care of the ads.
The president and his daughter are mobilizing their social media accounts to support Goya, a major food manufacturer from Latin America and the Caribbean. The company has faced consumer boycotts since CEO Robert Unanue praised Trump during his visit to the White House last week.
It may not sound like a whole bean, but the First Daughter and government official Ivanka Trump may have really broken the White House ethics in promoting the brand. Of course, the stunt is designed to spark media outrage that can be used for a person who likes to be ashamed of Hispanic voters, a key voting demographic that is far away. shunned by Trump’s tough immigration policies. “Ivanka is proud of this strong Spanish-owned business with deep roots in the US and the right to express her personal support,” White House spokeswoman Carolina Hurley said.
The president, never befuddled, did better, appearing with a range of Goya products on the Resolute Table – as if prepared to provide a special gift to any buyer of coconut water, beans, Spices and Cookies. The general manager of sales did not blink an eye when he asked Ukraine to intervene in the election, so it was hardly surprising that he ignored the rules designed to prevent the Oval Office from turning into a market stall. .
Without a doubt, conservatives often complain when President Barack Obama does not wear a coat and tie in the Oval Office, expressing outrage at the White House.
