Politics, not the bilateral trade imbalance, is what's at stake here.

That's why there is no need to negotiate with him.

Even the appearance of going to Washington at his invitation is counter-productive for China.

The public wouldn't see the small print about the words "at his invitation.."

All the world would see is that the Chinese are going to Washington and not the other way round, so they figure that the Chinese are the ones giving up on the situation and thus eager to negotiate.

That's why I say there is no need for China to send anybody anywhere to meet the untrustworthy real-estate man.

The chief reason is that the Beijing leadership, in its capacity as reasonable statesmen, want to have win-win outcomes in negotiations, but their counterpart in Washington only wants to hurt China badly even at the expense of hurting itself, and if even the mainstream American media (for a change as far as Western media goes) reveals the truth and condemns the real-estate man, he would just tweet that news against him are all fake and that other than he and his ilk, no other Americans could plausibly be patriots.

What he wants is not "American First," but his brand of "American rednecks and Z's first."  No one else matters.

So how can China negotiate with such a man, who had proven by his faithless action on May 3, 2018 that even signed agreements by him to avert the Sino-U.S. trade war are totally worthless?

There will be some oral agreements and even big smiles this time around, but in the end the Chinese officials will only be used for the real-estate man's November mid-term elections.

That's about it.

Yes, someone has asked me what makes a good political leader.

While no leader can possibly know everything he needs to know for good governance, whether he ends up being adjudged a good leader or not depends on how he acquires the necessary knowledge and handles the advice he receives.

This American real-estate man is self-righteous, narcissistic because he regards himself as a political genius and therefore not subject to conventional wisdom and judgment.

That's why he challenges the whole world because, like a unruly, clueless and spoilt brat in a toy shop, the bigger the fuss he makes the more delightful and excited he becomes.

And a 70-year old man who's never been in politics is playing the role of such a naughty boy today.  He wants to pre-empt his image of ignorance and ineptitude by engaging in unpredictable and risky behavior.

Afterall, while he is not subject to any immediate punishment for any crimes while he is still in office, on the contrary he has the authority to fire top law enforcement officials at any time.

Under such circumstances, his top priority is to keep himself in office as long as possible.

That's why I say never elect an old man for the top job in America.

He is old and rich enough to die with no regrets and so why not gamble with the prospect of winning against the only non-Western people that has the chance to upset the apple cart of systemic rules and regulations established by the Europeans and their modern-day reps in America.

Did I hear news today that they are canceling the visits at the last moment, or was it just the visits to Illinois and Iowa that are being scrapped?

In my opinion it's not Politics nor the bilateral trade imbalance...
