“I would like you to uphold the ‘One China’ policy,” Mr. Xi said to Mr. Trump in a scripted exchange.“At your request, I will do that,” Mr. Trump had just come from dinner with Republican donor Sheldon Adelson, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Nicki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
Sax Angle take: Sheldon Adelson, CEO and majority shareholder of Las Vegas Sands was Trump’s single largest donor to his Presidential campaign. Las Vegas Sands (LVS) has extensive casino holdings in Macau. Does this sound like “drain the swamp”? Funny it’s all the same, whether its Republicans or Democrats. Besides money, power, and greed, hypocrisy is the common currency.
