    Donald Trump gave Xi Jinping endorsements; Xi gave him face. Trump heaped praise on Xi for being a strong leader; Xi said nothing in return. Trump announced US responsibility for the trade deficit; Xi did not contradict him. Trump will claim that China has agreed to remove barriers to the American financial sector in the Chinese market; but Xi’s promises aren’t ironclad. Trump lamented that the US is “so far behind” China, while Xi simply noted that the Pacific has room for both countries. Trump said nothing about human rights in China, letting Xi believe it’s no longer an American priority. Trump called on China for the upteenth time to strengthen sanctions on North Korea; Xi said nothing, and the Chinese press removed Trump’s comments. Trump will return home and say the trip was a huge success, while Xi will believe the home field advantage really works. In short, Trump emerged looking like a supplicant, whereas Xi came off looking like the head of a coequal great power.

    Since politicians and media like to focus on winners and losers, is there any doubt how the Beijing 2017 summit will be remembered?

    The United States has long been viewed as a country with a tradition of respect for the rule of law. Political figures were held accountable to the courts and independent bureaucracies enforced rules and regulations. This didn’t mean there wasn’t any corruption; some level of corruption is unavoidable. But corruption was the exception and for the most part it was kept secret. Unlike many dictatorships, exposure meant the end of corruption. In the Trump presidency, this longer appears to be the case.

    Donald Trump has been defying the rules and norms that had governed past presidencies from even before he was elected. There has been a longstanding tradition in U.S. politics that candidates for president disclose their tax returns. This allows the public to see potential conflicts of interest and also to assess a candidate’s past behavior to determine if they have acted ethically in acquiring the wealth they have.
    And there’s more to read

    Trump is really the first person to come from business rather then a Lawyer criminal.
    Naturally anything in his taxes would be argued as conflict. Right now the platform of the Democrat party is to cause conflict and disruption as they have no real POLICY of their own to counter Trump.

    They would be argued as conflict because they're exactly that.

    I'm interested in policy and not a 24/7 Democrat attack.

    Just give me the policy, so now argue those.

    Policy? Would that be anything like the birther blitzkrieg we saw awhile back? Let's take a better look into what and why there is a lobby to protect those earnings. Nothing to hide? Let it all out.
