Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

So there we have it. The long-awaited shiny new trade deal with China, inked at a ceremony at the White House on Wednesday in the interstitial space before the Senate impeachment trial dominates the news cycles.

When the trade deal was signed, I cited articles comparing it to the deal reached (but not signed) in, if I remember correctly, 2018. Then Pres Trump backed away in a flair of tweets.

The comparison in the articles was not kind to Pres Trump.

Like the government shutdown that Pres Trump did, and wound up with a worse deal than he was offered going into the shutdown, the China deal of 2018 was better than the one Pres Trump ultimately signed recently.

So the suffering of the farmers really seems to be for naught.

But... Deal!

Trump can't "win" without everyone else losing. Like a scorpion, not his nature.

Trump can't actually win on trade or much of anything else so he agrees to a deal very similar to the on previously worked out by Obama and then tells everyone what a great negotiator he is.

Fat Nixon's history of negotiating is to agree to a contract price, then refuse to pay until sued then drag it out in court and only when the contractor is on the verge of bankruptcy agree to pay half.

That will not work with world leaders.
