Quick notes about Trump in China


The day after Donald J. Trump became the next president of the American republic, I listened to two of my students’ parents argue about the election results. It went like this:

A: “I like Trump. He is a strong leader.”

B: “My God. Trump? He doesn’t have any character. Not even a little.”

I’ll let you guess which one uses their smartphone to watch Party-sponsored dramas (without headphones of course) while their kid is in class and which one reads the news.


The Chinese government has told international media outlets that they did not in fact invent global warming to reduce America’s manufacturing competitiveness, as Trump has claimed.

My Chinese friends find this hilarious. They are not laughing with us.

But of course they wouldn’t. They’re communists.
