    Clinton, W, and Obama had the same strategy – ruthless appeasement. One cannot even say it failed, because their goal was to do as little as possible about unbelievable IP theft, territorial aggression, and threatening US allies.
    The bar is set so incredibly low for trump that a meager increase in jobs and standing up somewhat to the regime in Beijing = 2020 reelection.

      Clinton was the worst. He came in talking about HW being too soft after the Tiananmen massacre, and then totally changed his tune. Although he was compromised beyond any doubt with his proclivities and indiscretions and it all came out anyway

        Since Clinton was bought off by the Chinese, this behavior wasn’t really much of a surprise.

        Just think of how narrowly we missed an even worse fate with a Clinton redux…

    Doesn’t TAI read its own articles? Didn’t you see Claire Berlinski’s pronouncement of Trump as morally illiterate and his supporters as politically senescent? How can you allow even the possibility that Trump may make even one wise decision?

    So, the Trump administration is going to get tough with China by reviving and passing TPP?
