Costco is a case in point that shows China is still an attractive place for foreign investment. It ...
It is a slap in the face for Trump who wants all American companies to quit the Chinese market.


Not really. Trump wants American factories to quit the Chinese market, not stores or big box retailers.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
