Jobs, jobs, jobs

We just didn't know he meant jobs in China.

Just spoke to official who oversaw launch of ZTE case during Obama administration and spent years working on it: “I am speechless.”

President Xi of China, and I, are working together to give massive Chinese phone company, ZTE, a way to get back into business, fast. Too many jobs in China lost. Commerce Department has been instructed to get it done!

POTUS now worried about lost jobs in China, wants ZTE to flood US market with cheap phones to compete with US brands. LOL! I'm always taken completely by surprise by Opposite Day, can never remembers it's second Sunday in May.

President Trump says he’s working to give ZTE a reprieve


In a remarkable development, President Trump has thrown an olive branch to controversial Chinese telecom firm ZTE .

The company, which sells telcom network equipment and consumer devices including smartphones, said on Wednesday that it would cease its main business operations after the U.S. Department of Commerce announced a seven-year export restriction for the company, resulting in a ban on U.S. component makers selling to ZTE.

The company has been banned from selling equipment in the U.S., but shutting out supply chain partners like Intel, Qualcomm and Google is potentially catastrophic. (The fact ZTE postponed its earnings tells you all you need to know.)

Reports suggested that the Chinese government was working on ZTE’s behalf to find a compromise, and it looks like Chinese Premier Xi Jinping himself got in touch with the U.S. President, who said today in a tweet that is he “working[…]to give[…]ZTE a way back into business, fast.”

Somewhat bizarrely, Trump cited a loss of jobs in China as a motivating factor.
My emphasis.

With six you get eggroll

Of course, you know that to Trump, we all look alike anyway. This gives him a kind of cover.

But then, 15 minutes later ...

& chopsticks. Well, forget about it. In his hands, they look like sequoia logs. Oh, no, wait, that's not public knowledge yet, right? This conversation never happened, ya get me?

Y'all do know there is a different perspective. There always is. Y'all know what else has always been? Putting fingers in the ear and yelling nah-nah-nah!

That is my prediction for this thread, because politics.

So Trump is trying to work with China, and that's a bad thing?
