So this is a good article. You hit the major points: Trump’s behavior is unacceptably *high risk* (rather than being *right now* deadly). The inflection point will come when he takes this behavior into a for-real crisis and fumbles it.
That’s the problem.
He junked the TPP — okay (not my pref — but whatever) — but THEN going to intentionally clash with China is like making a (IMO) poor move — and then doubling down on the risk. If he avoids clashing with Chian, junking the TPP might be net-neutral for us (I think the TPP was a good idea, as I said) — but adding a trade war on top is the kind of amateur hour stuff that he’s cruising towards.
Oh, and I haven’t even *started* on my vocabulary yet. If you got anything wrong, it’s that!
