Re: It's Amazing How Petty The USA & Fearless Leader Trump Can Get

The US should remember that the Chinese hold US debt as well being the source of rare metals used in some security enterprises and a quick jerk of those strings would be a painful lesson for Washington to learn.

The three unknowns are; when China will decide she's had enough, what she will do about it, and whether Trump can be removed from office before that happens.

The latter might depend on whether the military brass are looking forward to a global nuclear war or want to avoid that.
