Being chained to an electronic device around the ankles is the kind of insult reserved for CONVICTED FELONS and not for someone like Meng.

So it is a kangaroo court at the beck and call of the Americans and everybody knows it.

Did anyone see the nosediving stock prices of Apple and American tech companies in the past few days?

That's the result of offending Chinese consumers, who as a group now exerts great political as well as economic power.

Apple sales in China has decreased by what -- a few million? -- enough to send the company's stocks down and down and down.

Trump is just a clown -- in Chinese we call such a person "Dou Fu" or an isolated, opinionated individual who wouldn't listen to true experts -- who fancies himself a genius who can out-smart all his advisors.

In his reality show "The Apprentice" Donald Trump was used to hire and fire people without any qualms.  In his role as the President, no consideration whatsoever was given to the feelings of those loyal to his Presidency.  Instead, all they've got in return was unfeeling, treacherous betrayal by a person elected by a mob of sore losers.

Secretary of Defense Mattis -- the one he just fired -- was in fact one of the greatest generals America has ever seen in recent memory.

That's what's wrong with the American style of 'representative' government -- you end up with petty, little men ruling over upright, capable men just because the former knows how to use tricks of deceitful demagoguery better than the latter.

Trump promised on the campaign trail in 2016 to let the Mexican government pay for the border wall.  He never for once said that the U.S. government should end up paying for it.

But now he is resorting to blackmailing tactics to force Congress to pay for HIS wall, while hundreds of thousands of government employees either 'work free' or stay at home without pay.

What kind of American president would allow this kind of thing to happen again and again shamelessly on the pretext that he was honoring his campaign promise to build the controversial wall?

What wall did he say during the campaign that would ever be financed by the U.S. government?

None.

So obviously America is now headed by a clown plus his coterie of moral midgets with pea-sized brains like Mike Pence and Pompeo, or warlike hawks like John Bolton and Peter Navarro.

All the good ones have been put to shame and then fired by a real-estate salesman who used campaign contributions to pay hush-hush money to prostitutes.

I mean how low can you get with American Democracy?

Rock-Bottom Low.

Meng volunteered to wear the device. She also volunteered to pay the wages of the security detail.

Trump is just a clown -- in Chinese we call such a person "Dou Fu" or an isolated individual who's so opinionated that he wouldn't listen to true experts -- who fancies himself a genius who can outperform all his advisors.


Here on the forum there are many such "Dou Fu".

Pity the Americans, with the shutdown, many govt agencies are not functioning, or partially functioning, garbage piling up, parks not cared for, unasafe etc.  They got what they voted for, a clown in the White House who is hell bent on exacting from Congress funds to build HIS wall which he promised his white supporters will be paid for by Mexico, but now forcing taxpayers to pay instead, all with an eye to the 2020 election!

The country has just gone to hell.   We just need to divorce and split up.

Don't do that, my dear. Just get your poop together and impeach the misogynistic megalomaniac. Unfortunately, here in Canada, they voted for the exact opposite of Trump: a politically correct, do-nothing-in-case-somebody-gets-offended drama teacher who tells veterans looking for support and medical treatment that "they are asking for more than the country can give", and then turns around and gives $10 1/2 million to a convicted terrorist!
