    He has not put any effort into it so far. If China wants to, they can send their military and occupy the city.

    • International politics are complicated. On one hand, I think it's better for all countries to focus on their own economies in order to prevent dependencies like the ones @stevyy mentioned. On the other hand, countries with weak economies (such as Africa or Eastern Europe) profit from international investment as they provide work places and pay taxes.

        The system is rigged... especially the financial system.

          He tried putting some effort, but there's a lot of money at stake. Even Donnie managed to upset Xi with those tariffs. It's funny how both of them became so dependent on each other.

            but so to speak any big economy is intertwined with all the others.

              but apparently no one told Donnie...He needed to find that out empirically, just like everything else in his life.

                      I've been watching some documentaries by Michael Moore (Fahrenheit 11/9) and (Where to invade next) and he is incredible in showing just how cruel those American Presidents have been (beginning with Reagan all the way up to Donnie, including Obama who really let children die in Flint, Michigan... seeing him refuse to drink the water from there and then holding a press conference saying everything's fine... is a crime against humanity.)

                                      It would not evolve into a world war. The usual suspects (UK, Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia) would likely buy America's lies again and follow Donald into war, but almost everyone else is smarter this time. There's a strong anti-American / anti-British sentiment that's built up in many EU countries, no one trusts them anymore. France and Germany especially have invested so much time and money into Iran, there's absolutely no chance we'd make a u-turn and attack them now. China also has nothing to gain. Not even Putin wants a conflict of that scale. It'd still be a disaster though.

                                                Fireworks can be nice to watch at New Years Eve.

                                                BUT... when you can't properly walk the dog for weeks, because of fireworks...
