42 – In Support of a Trade War

It is obvious that the actions taken by the Peoples Republic of China over the course of two decades has worked to undermine international norms of trade, diplomacy and law after they were admitted into numerous Western institutions meant to push for democratic ideals of liberty, democracy and freedom.

Out of principle, and a desire for that which is FAIR, I endorse the trade war undertaken by the President.
