Trump Bashes CNN, Washington Post Over ZTE Coverage: 'There Has Been No Folding' With China

Source: Mediate




by Ken Meyer | 9:48 am, May 16th, 2018

Another day, another round of tweets from Donald Trump, another swing at the media ó this time for coverage of the presidentís supposed capitulation to China with a deal regarding a telecom company.

For the last few days, much has been made about Trumpís pledge to rescue Chinese smartphone company ZTE from punishing U.S. trade restrictions. This seems to be a 180 from Trumpís past complaints about China stealing American jobs and tech ó or ďrapingĒ the U.S., as he so Trumpily put it ó plus there are questions as towhy the U.S. government should assist ZTE despite the companyís violations of Iran/North Korea sanctions, and other national security concerns.

Trump has been defending the move over the last few days, and now heís hitting the media for reporting on it.








Itís not entirely clear why Trump targeted CNN and Washington Post specifically on this issue, even if they outlets are two of Trumpís favorite whipping boys. Itís worth noting, however, that both outlets have noted that Trumpís pledge to help ZTE comes amid international economic negotiations, and WaPo recently documented how Chinese government-linked organizations will provide $500 million to an Indonesian development project featuring Trump-brand products.

1. Hit a nerve? Hahaha

Life was so much easier for Trump when he could fuck people and the country over without anyone questioning him or paying attention.

7. He sees his Nobel slip, sliding away. He is solely driven by naracism.

I wonder how long it will take or if it is even feasible for Republicans to put the welfare of the nation before their hopeless corrupt party. It is not an exaggeration to state that the Republican Party is the greatest single threat to welfare of the nation. The constant uninterrupted steam of hatred spewed daily by the ultra-right has so poisoned the minds of millions of Republican that they can't grasp the fact that they are sealing their own destruction.

2. Guilty much Donny?

Another part of the Steele Dossier looks to being proven true and that is
that not only was Team Trump mixed up w/Russia/Putin/Russian Mob/Putin
connected banks but that team Trump has been getting money from China
for years.

Trump went from 'America first' to saving jobs in China. This could be why

8. Steele outed the Players.

Steele outed the Money Streams.

Funny how Grassley tries his damn-est to debunk this and comes up empty at every turn.

4. Will someone post the POSs tweet re: "Communist commerce secretary W Ross to move FAST!!

Just as a reminder....I do believe the tweet was "above" the FOLD....or did someone else create the tweet -


We have not seen Chinaís demands yet, which should be few in that previous U.S. Administrations have done so poorly in negotiating. China has seen our demands. There has been no folding as the media would love people to believe, the meetings...

That doesn't even make sense...

9. Loyal employees do not fold

They fall in line.

Trump is in line and complying with upper management.

Just ask China or Russia.

11. Absolutely

We knew North Korea would threaten to call off the talks.

We're not caving on ZTE sanctions.

There's something every single fucking day. It's so damned exhausting.
