    I bet he didn't get it.

    Chinese President Xi Jinping is honoring President Trump with an unusually lavish reception and one-of-a-kind perks in China this week ó the latest example of how leaders around the world are using flattery as a diplomatic tool for influencing the American president.

    Weeks after Trumpís election, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made his way to Trump Tower to gift the president-elect with a $4,000 gold-plated golf club. When Saudi Arabia hosted Trump in May, they projected a five-story image of his face onto the Ritz-Carlton hotel where he stayed. Polish politicians bused adoring fans into Warsaw this summer to ensure that the president felt just like he was at rally of his supporters at home.

    Itís common for world leaders to honor one another with big welcomes and thoughtful gifts, but there is something over the top and, well, Trumpian about many of their gestures toward the president.

    As heads of state struggle to predict what the leader of the free world is thinking or likely to do at any given moment, they have settled on massaging his ego as a way to nudge his mood in their favor.

    they don't do that in Canada?

    They just can't stand that we actually have legit and factual reasons to criticize him.

    This answers both your posts. It was kind of obvious to the rest of us. I can understand why it may have gone over your heads=Trumpsters.

    Common knowledge so google what some leaders are doing to Trump to make him feel important. It is actually funny as hell.

    "they have settled on massaging his ego as a way to nudge his mood in their favor."

    this is an opinion. it is not a fact.

    this is what is referred to as FAKE news.
