    So the Chinese government gives a Trump property money and he lifts sanctions on one of their companies that produces phones used in espionage against the United States.  Just another day in 'this is your traitorous elected government.'

      Do you have a link from a credible source that proves the recent transfer of money by China to a Trump property?

          Thanks, Don. The South China Morning Post article is especially damning.

            Here's a damning quote from one of Don W's links: Not looking good at all for Mr. Trump: But hey, don't worry, there's no conflict and he says his country always comes before his greed and he'd never even think of using our presidency to enrich himself or his grifter family by accepting monetary consideration from foreign entities:

            I mean come on, one mentally unstable paranoid elderly man setting our constitution ablaze is no big deal these days:

            "It is also the first project to link Trump’s business interests to China’s signature infrastructure initiative, which aims to connect the world’s second-largest economy with Africa, Asia and Europe through a vast network of ports, railways, roads and industrial estates."

      Cohen selling access to Trump.
      Meeting with Qatari businessmen and taking bribes.
      114 days, or 22% of his presidency at his own properties at an approximate cost of 67 million to taxpayers.

    Day by Day, hour by hour and minute by minute, Donny Boy continues to turn his hillbilly fans into fools:

    Now we know why Michael Avenatti and an ever growing number of experts have arrived at the logical conclusion that Donny will never serve his entire phony term:

    UNREAL: … -trump-zte

    Maybe I'm just stupid, but

    "A subsidiary of Chinese state-owned construction firm Metallurgical Corporation of China (MCC) signed a deal with Indonesia’s MNC Land to build a theme park outside Jakarta as part of the ambitious project, the company said on Thursday. "

    China signed with a foreign country to build a theme park,a part of a much more ambitious project.

    "The project includes Trump-branded hotels, residences and a golf course, as well as other hotel, shopping and residential developments."

    The bigger project, but not the theme park, will include some Trump brand items.

    "While the Chinese companies will not be directly involved in the construction or financing of the Trump properties, the theme park is a critical part of the 3,000-hectare development, which MNC describes as Indonesia’s “most prestigious entertainment & lifestyle project”."

    China is not involved in building or financing the parts that are part of the Trump empire.  The theme park China is to build is a critical part of Indonesia's plans.

    "It is not clear to what extent the Trump Organisation was involved in the decision to include Chinese state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in the project."

    Nobody knows if the Trump people were involved in the contract between the two countries.

    To recap:
    China has contracted with Indonesia to build a theme park. 
    Trump has (perhaps) contracted with Indonesia to build some of the larger project.
    China has no part in the Trump plans - neither construction nor financing.
    There is no indication that Trump had any dealings with China

    Therefore Trump is using the trade/tariff war between China and the US what?  Build a tower in a third country not part of the "war", with approval from that country?

    Ask yourself if the Trump hotel plan benefits from China financing the theme park in the same development.  If you say no, then yes, you are stupid.

      Ask yourself if Trumps hotels benefit from ANY development within a 100 miles.  Anywhere in the world.  City water or sewer.  Roads.  Commercial buildings.  Any development, by any source.

        wilderness, your assertions are immaterial and irrelevant to the subject because the massive conflict that Mr. Trump is pursuing now on our dime in China and the massive conflicts he has perpetrated since our enemy Vladimir Putin embedded him in our oval office is and are serious crimes, felonies, constitutional violations, a betrayal of the United States and her people which carries a very severe penalty, unless of course he can get away with it again with a complicit republican congress::

        It's nothing less than insane what he and his grifter family are trying to do, and in the process, the USA is crumbling before our very eyes: Maybe it's simply his warped self destructive conscience: Hard to believe a 71 year old babbling fool can survive this:

        CONFIRMED: Michael Cohen attended a meeting at Trump Castle with this an accused 'briber':  It's gotten to the point of ridiculousness, how blatant and in your face Mr. Trump is flashing his corruption:

    Easy solution.  Divest.  Since he refused to, then it's on him to avoid conflicts.

      If Donny Bot divested, which would have been the only remedy to avoid all of his entanglements and blatant unlawful activity which includes many actions, not the least of which is a constitutional breach by accepting money from foreign entities including our arch enemies, it would have been necessary for him to value country over greed which of course we all know by now is laughable:

      It's surreal and utterly insane to think we're even talking about a this, an ultra- corrupt 71 year old elderly Russian controlled poodle sitting in our oval office, giving away top secret info to spies while his company collects money from our arch enemies: Nothing less than INSANE, and his republican accomplices are complicit in this unprecedented cesspool:

        Now it is news the Qatar connection with Cohen netted Kushner's company new backing for the losing Manhattan "666" building. I'm sure it's merely coincidental as the other hundreds of suspicious Spanky related deals are.roll

          'Desperate' Jared Kushner is in almost as deep as his orange father in law but Donny Boy keeps being exposed for crime after crime after crime to stay one step ahead, the criminal investigations are unrelenting in unearthing a virtual mountain of damning evidence and I'm actually shocked he hasn't been indicted yet but perhaps Mueller is waiting until all crimes and evidence are uncovered, which in reality may take an eternity to accomplish, before he issues the subpoena:

          "666" is now integrated with 1600 Penn Ave., is that really a surprise to anyone? And furthermore, who would actually be dumb enough to drastically over pay for a piece of real estate associated with the number of the beast? And this brilliant guy who put this horrendous deal together has no SECURITY Clearance and he's roaming around the white house grounds unimpeded?: In what universe is that legal? UNREAL:

            Now Roger Stone is sweating bullets as his Social Media Manager has been subpoenaed by Mueller. Since Stone has yet to be questioned by Mueller's team, this points to his possibly being a subject of interest or even a target for indictment. Yes, things are moving right along now as you can tell by the desperation of Spanky's cronies like Nunes and especially his voters  and apologists on these forums.

              If we still have laws in this country, Donny's close friend Roger Stone is gone too: Cavorting with Russian operatives like Wiki-leaks: That's called conspiracy and treason against America and who knows what else there is to be unearthed:

              Trump -----> Stone -----> Julian Assange -----> Wikileaks -----> Russia -----> Vladimir Putin:

                While you media experts emotionally bond over ideological media B.S.  bias;  remember we ARE a nation of laws that protect the innocent from the politicized powers that be -even in the highest courts ,  America has not seen such  party oriented media fed fanaticism in the days of Judge Roy Bean , public hangings in the town square , the  royal  drawing and quartering  ,  the very same  elitist liberal  starry- eyed blood thirst .  The left even now similarly includes dragging your children to the spectacles to teach them the very same morally deprivations that your party  shows in protest marches as five year olds hold up signs proclaiming " Stay out of my vigina " or " Guns kill kids too" ,  only in such ideological inspired brilliance  does American still stand in line to show it's true colors of party politics . God , your democratic party is thusly so brilliant .

                Guess which headline's next in the news ;
                --Trump fires entire Mueller team and Sessions.
                --Trump ignores sopheana  and stands his ground.
                --Indictments have no legal bite or teeth to bite with .
                --Leftist celebrities call for dropping phony trump Investigation *

    To mitigate the 'shock' factor going forward when reading or hearing all the latest stunning revelations about Donny, perhaps Trump fans might want to become acquainted with certain applicable legal terms like 'bribery':

    "Bribery is defined by Black's Law Dictionary as the offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting of any item of value to influence the actions of an official or other person in charge of a public or legal duty. ... A bribe is the gift bestowed to influence the recipient's conduct."

    Anyone who thinks the government has not been for sale for a long time is turning a blind eye to reality. Politicians have enriched themselves, family and friends since probably before Hamilton.

    It is mind boggling to me that the left has some bizarre notion that Trump is acting outside of the norms of Washington. If this is your belief, Washington will never change. Simply because it appears if the party one backs is doing something turn a blind eye.

      I don't recall a president, or in Donny's case an impostor, lending his name to a project for financial benefit where our arch enemy contributed funds to said project, then shortly thereafter as reported, said president announced his intent to HELP a Chinese cell phone company accused of espionage:

      That's called multiple crimes including a breach of our constitution, which pretty much means nothing now:

        Well, look at the Clinton legacy. As president, he pushed for deregulation, benefiting the banks mostly. Look where a lot of his money came from later. Let's look at Hillary. Backing legislation in New York on bankruptcy. Benefiting banksto the detriment of private citizens.

        Say what you want. Draw convenient lines of you will. They all do it. I simply am willing to see it.

          More desperate false comparison between the Clintons who are now retired, and the most blatantly corrupt bozo on the planet? Mr. Trump just transferred 7 trillion dollars of our wealth to his elite Wall Street pals, he constantly sabotages healthcare and is plotting to cut children's healthcare and now, our enemy China is gifting a project in Indonesia millions which Mr. Trump will profit from personally and directly while occupying the oval office:

          Everyone understands the fact that it doesn't get any more corrupt that that: I hope you understand this is blatantly criminal behavior and hopefully Mueller is compiling data on this egregious display of arrogance to pile on top of the existing mountain of evidence he has already collected:
