Sounds like paranoia.

-> Trump is evil and all that because he wants people to file papers before immigrating into the country but, unable to recognize that a regime has been responsible for 15 to 45 million deaths during the Great Chinese Famine. That record rivals Hitler and Stalin by the way.

Continues to act daily to hurt freedom (see the news on Hong Kong), steals our patents, secrets, doesn't follow WTO rules, jails our people, supports North Korea, seizes vast part of ocean, threatens Taiwan and all its neighboors, has re-education camps for muslims, oh and Tiananmen Square...

This ain't a friendly regime and yes, any comparison with Trump is absurd.

Yep,

China is executing on a brilliant strategy:

The Russians are not the ones to worry about.

I actually like some National review articles,  it this one is cringeworthy

Quote
More insidious is the Chinese effort to send hundreds of thousands of students to the West in general, and in particular the United States. Again, in theory it is a brilliant strategy. Like the madcap effort of late-19th and early-20th-century Japan, following the Meiji Restoration, to place a quarter-million students in Britain, France, and Germany to soak up everything from army organization to nautical engineering,

The US should do what they have done for a long time. Offer the smartest and brightest  a way to stay here legally. these are exactly the people the US  needs. sure, some will go back to China, but the vast majority will stay.

Also, as far as buying stakes in ports and infrastructure, what is the Chinese track record with big foreign investments? it seems that they are losing a lot of money buying skyscrapers in NYC and then selling it back for a fraction of their initial cost. They are just burn8ng cash.Same most likely with investment in Africa. Anyways, capitalism is very good at taking advantage of central planners.
To be a realist, one has to believe in miracles.

Trump started making his ties and suits there back in 2007.  So he definitely knows who is screwing who, and exactly when China asked him to touch his toes!  Cheers!
