Trump never sides with oppressed people, his dream is to be dictator. One of my big problems with Trump is that he doesn't address this in his China policy.Anyone paying attention? Or is this the kind of deal where Trump isn't siding with the protesters (incredibly), so the Trump fans don't care, and of course the board commies are hoping China squashes the capitalism out of Hong Kong, so no one cares?
The US should always signal support with defenders of liberty the world over. They're flying US flags and signing the anthem for god's sake. It's a million times more important than a trade deal.
I've kept up on this issue, and it's very complicated. For now anyway, I think the Hong Kong protesters are fairly well screwed. The Chinese are using open-source machine-learning AI for facial recognition, and they are just now working on integrating regional systems into a nation-wide facial-recognition system that's tied directly into their social score database. They are using US-researched high tech to implement the new Orwellian world of China.The U.S. should not publicly say anything. It's better if the protests are viewed and continue to grow organically. Shadow operations are probably happening. The goal is for this to spread to the mainland cities
Let's hope the protesters win, but I don't know what a win looks like right now.
What matters is that he's finally got some competent advisors, and he does listen to them. In public, he works hard to maintain his country bumpkin image. Hey, I cringe on a lot of things he says, but I've come to realize that while his talk is cringe-worthy, his actions are (many more times than not) laudable.Do you actually listen to Trump speak? It's not an opinion that he has little knowledge of most world affairs. You guys constantly come on here telling us what brilliant thing Trump is really up to when there is zero evidence that he is anything other than low information.
