The Trump Administration Goes After China
Vice President Pence is giving a speech today at the Hudson Institute.
Normally that wouldn’t get a lot of attention, especially with so much else going on. But this is a bigger deal than it might appear.
Seeing portions of the speech now on Twitter, it is crystal clear that the White House is trying to delegitimize the on-going Mueller probe by setting up China is the real meddler in US internal affairs and democratic practice.
Most importantly, they are claiming that China is working against Donald Trump in 2018 and 2020. This is a big, big deal and I expect they will be expanding on it in the coming weeks and likely going into 2020.
If the midterms go to the Dems, it's a given the Trump admin will say it was rigged by the Chinese. Will they cede power, is the real question?
