Trump china and twitter

Trump attacks China in Twitter outburst

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-38167022

So his comments on the South china sea and currency manipulation have been spoken about prior . nor do I disagree with the statements

It is the vessel( Twitter ) he chooses to make these declaration's to the world .. that is dangerous on so many different levels.

with twitter he is not required to answer any questions from the press
or the American people . On how why what if China pushes back

He is the President elect.. he has not been sworn in nor has his cabinet they do not have the authority of the office to speak for the united states..

Some Have said F**^%k China which is fine to do so Via Twitter is only productive to his base supporters the below statement says it all

Christopher Hill, a former US ambassador, said that Trump was "winging it" and may not have been aware of the significance of the move.

Fairly stupid that he is doing this over twitter - someone needs to take his phone away.

Having said that, China has been acting like a spoiled brat / bully for some time and their big neighbor (US) has been pretty inconsistent in dealing with them. We will have a big China problem soon, regardless of WH occupant.

Interesting piece, written by a Democrat who is a former CIA officer, about Trump and China...
