Trump vs. China
At a campaign rally in August, Trump alleged that Chinese businesspeople don't make small talk during negotiations. "We want deal," Trump said, doing a crude impression.
And in his campaign announcement speech earlier in the summer, Trump boasted that – unlike the U.S. government – he knows how to deal with China. "When was the last time anybody saw us beating, let's say, China in a trade deal? They kill us," Trump said. "I beat China all the time. All the time." In 2011, Trump went on CNN and proclaimed, "China is our enemy."
