It’s not consoling that Trump’s new embarrassments of the country eclipse the old before they’ve hardly circulated. At least we at home we know it’s a Republican thing. Much of the world, and some American media, associate Trump’s ignorance and lying with America. MAGA. Trump boarded a plane to the G7 shortly after stating “I hereby order” American companies to get out of China, where he stated American companies should “stay there and do a great job.” A great job for President Xi, who is “a great man” and also “the enemy.” Then Trump said the Chinese had called to discuss trade: https://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2019/08/26/Trump-China-asked-for-trade-talks-to-resume/9331566810434/c Except the Chinese Foreign Ministry said the Chinese government had not called US negotiators: https://www.newsweek.com/china-says-it-didnt-call-us-trade-negotiators-despite-donald-trumps-claim-1456354 I’m inclined, like the rest of the world, to go with the statement that wasn’t made by a pathological liar. Trump said there was a trade deal “in principle” with Japan. Japanese PM Abe said “We still have some remaining work that has to be done at the working level,” which is diplomatic-speak for “We’d like to close a deal, but Trump doesn’t know what he’s talking about.” Too bad there’s no one left at the State Department to translate. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/trump-says-japan-trade-deal-reached-but-abe-warns-more-work-remains/ar-AAGjcNo It’s not like there was administration babble about a US-Japan deal ready to close three months ago or anything. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/05/03/reuters-america-update-1-u-s-japan-trade-deal-seen-by-late-may-white-house-adviser-says.html Meanwhile the EU and Japan concluded a deal over a month ago: https://money.cnn.com/2018/07/17/news/economy/eu-japan-trade-deal/index.html MAGA.
