It looks like the giant firewall that keeps China 🇨🇳 out of social media didn’t affect President Trump’s love for tweeting. Although there weren’t as many as usual, he still did reach out to his devoted followers.
Congratulations to all of the ”DEPLORABLES” and the millions of people who gave us a MASSIVE (304-227) Electoral College landslide victory!
President Trump marked the one-year anniversary of his election by thanking the “deplorables” who contributed to his “Electoral College landslide victory.” Trump tweeted, along with a photo 📷 of him and his top aides aboard Air Force One flashing thumbs-up signs for the camera.
President Xi, thank you for such an incredible welcome ceremony. It was a truly memorable and impressive display!
President Trump heaped praise on President Xi Jinping of China 🇨🇳 on Thursday, blaming Trump’s own predecessors for China’s yawning trade surplus with the United States and saying he was confident :thumbusp: that Xi could defuse the threat from North Korea. Trump’s warm words, on a state visit to China replete with ceremony but short of tangible results, showed a president doubling down on his gamble that by cultivating a personal connection with Xi, he can push the Chinese leader to take meaningful steps on North Korea and trade.
In the coming months and years ahead I look forward to building an even STRONGER relationship between the United States and China. 🇺🇸
It was a remarkable moment in the story of China’s rise and America’s response to it, with Trump’s performance suggesting a tipping point in great-power 💪 politics. By concluding that the United States can better achieve its goals by flattering a Chinese leader than by challenging him, Trump seemed to signal a reversal of roles: the United States may now need China’s help more than the other way around. Trump congratulated Xi on consolidating power at a recent Communist Party congress, declaring, “Perhaps now more than ever we have an opportunity to strengthen our relationship.” “You’re a very special man,” he told Xi in an appearance before reporters.
