What Trump “wanted” and what Trump did are 2 different things. Trump did nothing different with China when all was said and done. Trump quickly understood that corporate America liked the (high profits) policies they had with China and they (corporate America and Trump) never saw the supply chain issues coming down the pike. America got caught with its pants down and by the time Biden arrived it was too late. Please, also remember “all the cooperation” the Trump team gave Biden’ transition team between the election and inauguration. EPIC stonewalling.How did they take over? They didn't. They have sent china boatloads of money.
Trump wanted to get off china's tit, it was and is going to hurt, but the timing was shitty.
