Donald Trump says China is our enemy

While most high-ranking business people I’ve talked to speak highly of China’s rise in economic power, Donald Trump says the Chinese “are not our friends. These are our enemies.”  Regarding Hu Jintao’s recent visit, Trump says that if he were the president, he would not be taking China’s leader to “fancy steak dinners.”  Chinese people “are not people that understand niceness,” he says.  Check out Trump’s anti-China rant here.

I’m all for having our own opinions, but Mr. Trump might want to get his facts right first. For example, Trump is totally incorrect when he says repeatedly that the US is the highest taxed country in the world. Um, has he ever talked to anyone in Europe? Norway taxes people close to 50 percent, for instance.  The US actually has one of the lowest tax rates in the world.

Anyway, I’d pay BIG money to see an all-out battle between Donald Trump and Gao Xiqing, the dude who manages $200 billion of China’s $2 trillion in US dollar holdings and told us to “Be Nice to the Countries who Lend Your Money” (awesome article, BTW. Must read.)  FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

We fobs aren’t the only ones talking about China’s economy these days.  Forbes voted Hu Jintao as the #1 most powerful guy in the world, Warren Buffet says you should move to Asia for your kids, and even “The Office” had a China episode.

    I’m a ABC (American-born Chinese), which means I am eligible to vote in the USA. I would definitely not be voting for Donald Trump if he decides to run for president. Since I’m Chinese, I must be the enemy right?

    Here’s what to do. If you’re Chinese or have Chinese genes, and are eligible to vote in the USA, DO NOT vote for Donald Trump during the next elections if he decides to run.
