Deep State – Former Trump Senior State Dept. Official Tells Beijing to Wait Until Trump is Removed…

A clear example of the Administrative State’s seditious alignment with global financial interests and DC indulgences.  This is the deep state at its deepest and most statist.

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, tells her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

(BEIJING) […] “I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this skeptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber. (read more)

There was a prescient article written in Politico when Thornton announced her exit from the State Department.

POLITICO […] – Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson pushed for Thornton to lead the state’s East Asia bureau during his tenure, but then-White House chief strategist Steve Bannon tried to block her advancement. Bannon claimed she was too soft on China, but her nomination moved forward after he was ousted from the White House. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) also said he did not want her to be confirmed. Thornton did receive a confirmation hearing, but never a vote.  –link

This type of undermining of the president by a well known top diplomat is likely why the Chinese politburo rebuked the deal put together by USTR Robert Lighthizer and Chinese Vice-Primier Liu He.

Obviously President Trump’s opposition is confident they can remove him from office; and giving advice to the Chinese who are making long-term strategic decisions with that confidence in mind.

Again, just another example of the scale and scope of the challenges faced by President Trump as he attempts to negotiate strength for the U.S. economy, and is undermined by bureaucrats who make more personal wealth selling out our nation to foreign  governments.

There are trillions at stake; and former bureaucrats like Ms. Susan Thornton use their former positions to make millions at the trough even if that means advocating for the interests of a communist government.

Disappointing would be an understatement.

Those who have sold out our nation despise President Trump.

    fyi.. – US lifts steel and aluminium tariffs on Canada.. But at least some good news on it.

    Set up measures to “prevent the importation of aluminum or steel that is unfairly subsidized and/or sold at dumped prices” and “prevent the transshipment of aluminum and steel made outside of Canada or the United States to the other country”
    Make an “agreed-upon process for monitoring aluminum and steel trade between them”

    She’s trying to be relevant…..cause she is not. And her kind may soon be extinct. The Chinese are smart, they see the writing on the wall. I doubt they will pay much attention to her.

    I wholeheartedly agree, Hyperslow. Susan Thornton’s trying to be relevant because she’s not. Yes, her kind may soon be extinct. As we all know, the Chinese are very smart and clever. They see the writing on the wall and a trade deal will be made sooner or later. I, too, doubt they’ll pay much attention to her.

      No, I don’t think there will be a trade deal anytime sooner or later.
      President Trump knows the Chinese will not agree to the necessary legal enforcement required, including verification for IP protection and allowing access to their markets by American companies.
      He will happily take the tariff money and probably will “adjust” upwards gradually the tariffs on certain classes of product that he would like to see returning to American manufacture – creating a sort of priority list. Meanwhile, the Chinese economy will be struggling to keep its head above water, especially with regard to having sufficient foreign currency (dollars) to buy its raw materials, oil etc.
