1.  The following are excerpts from Sarah Zheng's 27 June, 2019 news report headlined "China is our biggest threat, say several Democrat contenders for White House".

(Begin excerpts)
Several Democratic contenders for the 2020 US presidential election have named China as the biggest geopolitical threat to the United States, amid ongoing strategic clashes between Washington and Beijing over trade and technology.

The first of the primary debates for a packed field of Democrats in Miami on Wednesday featured 10 of the 20 candidates and focused largely on domestic issues, but also touched on US foreign policy challenges.

When debate moderators from broadcaster NBC asked candidates what they considered the greatest geopolitical threat to the US, four of the contenders named China: John Delaney, former congressman in Maryland; Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar; Julian Castro, the former secretary of housing and urban development; and Tim Ryan, congressional representative from Ohio...  (End excerpts)

2.  Donald Trump may be right to claim that any Democrat presidential candidate who unseats him in 2020 would not take a softer stance in the US-Sino trade dispute, or more accurately, geopolitical rivalry.  However, China should not be fooled by Trump as seen in the following analogy:

For many years, a tribe of monkeys in a zoo never dared to climb over a low fence which separated them from the goggling tourists.  One day, the zoo owner bought a monkey from overseas as an addition to the tribe.

At first the new monkey was well-behaved and timid like the other primates until he found some tourists eating fruits and peanuts while staring at his tribe across the fence.  Unable to control his hunger, the hungry monkey climbed over the fence and attacked the tourists.  The beast not only managed to snatch away a packet of peanuts from a tourist but also scratched and left bloody wounds on his hands.  Seeing that the new monkey could get away so easily with the stolen peanuts, the other monkeys followed suit.

All of a sudden, they found the courage to climb over the fence for the first time in their lives.  They attacked all the tourists on sight with great fury, scratching their bodies and faces mercilessly and snatching away theirs bags or whatever they had.

Now let us look at the situation from another angle.  If the tourist managed to overpower the new monkey and taught him a good lesson, the other monkeys would never dare to climb over the fence.

The same lesson could be applied to US-Sino relations.  If Trump suffers a crushing defeat in the so-called trade war, future US presidents will be less likely to repeat Trump's folly against China.

Donald Trump's infamous Hitler-style rabble-rousing chants:  "Lock her up!  Lock her up!"

Me believe Trump was the best thing ever happened to the Middle Kingdom...

  Without him, the Middle Kingdom would be the same as S/Korrea, Japan and the EU.

    Mr. Trump tells them to jump and they will change into a sporty tie and ask:  How high Mr. President...
The EU is much stronger as the Americans, but fear and lack of self esteem, poor self image and low confidence is making them an easy target for Mr. Trump.

    The English are not suffering from such an inferior complex, they kept their currency and now they say: Hasta la vista to them losers...

     Personally, I want no part of them.   Too many Colonies and slaves around the world...
But I dislike the weak EU even more
