Trump's Worried About Jobs in China?

In a surprising overture to China, President Donald Trump says he would help a Chinese telecommunications company get “back into business,” saying too many jobs in China are at stake after the U.S. government cut off access to its American suppliers.
Trump cares about Chinese jobs while effectively giving zip-point-shit fucks about working Americans.

So who is getting paid off? Did ZTE hire Michael Cohen?

This is apparently part of a deal he's trying to do that would avoid retaliatory tariffs of agricultural products and other stuff because of his steel and aluminum tariffs. Problem is they are currently sanctioned, not tariffed, for national security reasons (read that they sold US sourced parts to Iran and North Korea).

Seems he's gotten pretty much everyone that is employable here in the US employed.

And I think D is correct.

Really?! All the coal miners are re-employed? All the steel workers are back at the mills? All the workers at Carrier whose jobs were saved by Trumpy, then lost them again after the media coverage left; those people got their jobs again? Hooray! Huzzah! Let’s make Trumpy our permanent ruler! Perhaps he’ll cure cancer next!

Gimme a break.
