Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, August 25, 2019

As part of his ever-escalating trade war with China, Donald Trump has ordered Americans to stop patronizing Chinese restaurants. "If they think they can outsmart me, they better think again," said the master negotiator. "I am hitting them where it hurts, in the stomach. This was always my nuclear option and I'm using it. No more family nights at the local Chinese restaurant ... no more takeout." Following Trump's latest directive, which he put out in a tweet, a few staff members gently tried to explain to Trump that the People's Republic of China does not own any restaurants in the United States, let alone Chinese restaurants; that this boycotting of Chinese eateries will have no effect on our adversary.

Following Trump's latest directive, which he put out in a tweet, a few staff members gently tried to explain to Trump that the People's Republic of China does not own any restaurants in the United States, let alone Chinese restaurants; that this boycotting of Chinese eateries will have no effect on our adversary.

"Maybe not," said Trump, "but it will severely cut down on the food they export to our country. Where do you think all those Peking ducks come from? And those fortune cookies? And that special, secret sauce for General Tso's chicken? ... China."

It remains to be seen if Americans will give up their love of Chinese food.

Already several Jewish organizations, including the Jewish Federation of North America and the National Council of Jewish Woman, have come out strongly in opposition to the proposed ban.

Expect this opposition to intensify during the Christmas holiday season...:-)

What a stupid --ck.

I do hope his supporters stay out from the best places where lines are already too long, and we don't need their drama interrupting any more family owned American businesses.

Asian Americans obviously know whom not to vote for 2020..

Are kosher delis next? What an outright dumb thing to attack. I'll bet he travels to Russia immediately after "leaving" office for borscht and hooker pee.

No because 30 minutes after you eat it you're hungry again. Then you are back to where you were before the trip to the Chinese restaurant.
