China orders media to stop insulting Trump

China has reportedly issued updated guidelines to its news media, ordering outlets not to attack President Trump.

Sources in Chinese state media told Reuters that Beijing is concerned that negative coverage of the president could further inflame the trade conflict between the two countries.

“When exposing and criticizing American words and actions, be careful not to link it to Trump and instead to aim it at the U.S. government,” a memo based on verbal instructions from government officials reads.

A leaked propaganda document earlier this year issued similar directives, telling media not to “attack Trump’s vulgarity; don’t make this a war of insults.” But one source at a top Chinese news site told Reuters that the new rules are “the most strict yet.”
My guess is that there are possibly two reasons for Xi doing this. Both are probably operative.

First, everyone knows that Dot Don reacts strongly, impulsively and unthinkingly against any real or perceived slight.

Second, Xi is playing the long game. He knows that Dot Don will be gone, and this way the US will know that even though the shit disturber is gone, that doesn't mean the pressure is off.

Xi knows it is crucial to play to this asshole’s fragile ego. So weak.

Xi knows; Putin knows; hell, even Kimmie knows, though Kim has quite an inflated ego too ... as does Putin ... and Xi.

Trump is narcissistic to the point of delusion and almost entirely reactionary. The BEST way to shut him down is to simply NOT respond to his bombastic and firebrand bullying.

Xi is simply refusing to play Trump's game.
