Yeah, Trump is in such a trade war with China.  https://www.nationalreview.com/news/china-contributing-500-million-trump-linked-project-indonesia/ 

Guys. I hope everyone understands that there's team Mob fossil fuel drug and sex trafficking, and the good guys. You know what team Trump, Putin, Xi, and Kim play for, right?  https://www.scmp.com/news/asia/southeast-asia/article/2145808/trump-indonesia-project-latest-stop-chinas-belt-and-road 

And Trump's "crazy" for wanting to "buy" Greenland.

So: is China?  https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-46386867 

I mean, China seems to have plans there. Funny how Trump never called those out. Those plans are strategically ominous.  https://www.defensenews.com/global/europe/2018/09/07/how-a-potential-chinese-built-airport-in-greenland-could-be-risky-for-a-vital-us-air-force-base/ 

Trump: I WANNA BUY GREENLAND ALSO DON'T GO TO CHINESE RESTAURANTS.

China: We have mining interests in the "Ice Silk Road."  https://thediplomat.com/2019/02/china-steps-up-its-mining-interests-in-greenland/ 

We've had FOUR YEARS to get that Trump is just the sideshow who says stupid things while NATO's enemies are making real strategic moves.

Maybe we could figure out he's not dumb: he's just a Mob employee. Always has been.

PS. If you want to know just why Devin Nunes has been so against investigating foreign powers, remember, he's been trying to get our intel infrastructure placed in the Azores. And look who is investing there.  https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-10-12/portugal-open-to-china-investment-in-azores-as-u-s-sway-wanes
