First Trump orders American companies to find a way out of the China market…….https://lobotero.com/2019/08/26/a-state-controlled-economy/…now he is ordering you and me as well….
As part of his ever-escalating trade war with China, Donald Trump has ordered Americans to stop patronizing Chinese restaurants.
“If they think they can outsmart me, they better think again,” said the master negotiator. “I am hitting them where it hurts, in the stomach. This was always my nuclear option and I’m using it. No more family nights at the local Chinese restaurant … no more takeout.”
Following Trump’s latest directive, which he put out in a tweet, a few staff members gently tried to explain to Trump that the People’s Republic of China does not own any restaurants in the United States, let alone Chinese restaurants; that this boycotting of Chinese eateries will have no effect on our adversary.
“Maybe not,” said Trump, “but it will severely cut down on the food they export to our country. Where do you think all those Peking ducks come from? And those fortune cookies? And that special, secret sauce for General Tso’s chicken? … China.”
It remains to be seen if Americans will give up their love of Chinese food. Already several Jewish organizations, including the Jewish Federation of North America and the National Council of Jewish Woman, have come out strongly in opposition to the proposed ban.
Does he know how incredibly STUPID he sounds?
I thought this might be an Onion post….but I could not find a Snark tag…..
Peking is a cooking method not a place. Fortune cookies were invested in San Francisco I believe as well as General Tso’s Chicken….this man illustrates daily to me that he should not be allowed to do anything but some about Reality TV of which he is a bit of an expert.
