    The USA has a lot more to offer than expensive weapons systems. salesman trump should have tried selling infrastructure services instead.

    Anyone remember when we sold JETS to Iran? Irony. (Of course they didn't have mechanics to work on them and were crashing them--Grumman had to send over consultants to teach them how to fly and maintain them. I had a friend who went there to do just that for a 2 year stint. He came home one day about 15 months in and had 24 hours to get his wife and kids packed and sent back to the US. I can't remember the exact period, but it was weeks before the overthrow of the Shah).
    Thanks from Tedminator and labrea

    There were no grandiose expectations other than from the left.
    Be ignorant if you must, but you can listen to foreign policy experts from across the spectrum.

    These trips are not designed to put on shows and merely talk to people. They're called the world's biggest prybar.

    When absolutely nothing comes of them, people notice. That combined with his misbehavior ... it needs to be forgotten.

    To WIN POLITICAL POINTS?? Gee, I would have thought that was the side ADVANTAGE, not the in your face, craven political begging of a loser!

    Hell, come to think of it maybe if they wanted our stuff or could afford our stuff, they figured if he was that DESPERATE, they'd negotiate a better deal!! Wouldn't that be ironic??

    Sadly, like most wingnuts...he has to drum up fear of war to do so. Makes sense to threaten hostilities with NK and sell SK and Japan weapons.

    Cause the need then fill the need. He's like a drug-dealer.

    This is truly pathetic. You may as well say, U.S. GDP is $18.57 trillion, all of that money is thanks to Trump!

    No international deals struck, no future negotiations publicly planned, no significant documents signed...

    The highlight of the trip was Trump picking up a strategically placed golden vase in the Forbidden City.

    Unless you consider his love letters to Jinping and Rodrigo worthy of the Nobel Prize, we have bupkis. Time to move on.
