"Long planned"?? What 3 months???
What a buffoon. Trump already gave away everything when he agreed to the meeting. He legitimized a dictator that no other world leader would recognize.
So for all the ignorati who can't understand why the rest of the world (specifically CHINA!) is laughing at us...here let me explain the GREAT AND WONDEROUS negotiating skills of one Donald Trump:
1. Make demands no one would agree to.
2. When your opponent refuses to submit to the demands he does one of two things:
a. Take anything (no matter how small--like a 25,000 increase in exports of cars to South Korea) the other side offers and claim victory
b. Cancel, call off or ignore the negotiations and blame the other side. (this applies the "Russer" investigation as well)
That is it...that is all he has. Trump is as transparent as a window frame with no glass. Everyone (except the 35% of Americans who blindly follow this carnival barker) sees right thru him.
After almost a year and a half in office, this man is still to stupid to realize the folks on the other side of the table are better at this than he is.
