Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, February 13, 2018

The largest American office of China's largest bank sits on the 20th floor of Trump Tower, six levels below the desk where Donald Trump built an empire and wrested a presidency. It's hard to get a glimpse inside. There do not appear to be any public photos of the office, the bank doesn't welcome visitors, and a man guards the elevators downstairs--one of the perks of forking over an estimated $2 million a year for the space. Trump Tower officially lists the tenant as the Industrial & Commercial Bank of China, but make no mistake who's paying the rent: the Chinese government, which owns a majority of the company. And while the landlord is technically the Trump Organization, make no mistake who's cashing those millions: the president of the United States, who has placed day-to-day management with his sons but retains 100% ownership.

I haven't heard much about the USA defending international waters in the South China Sea lately.

This type of story is best served with an eyebrow wiggle, implying shenanigans.

This is important for China, who is manufacturing a line of clothes for Ivanka.

None of that matters at all as long as Rs control CONgress. The Chinese could be writing checks made out directly to Trump "for services rendered" and Rs would do nothing. The only remedy is impeachment and that won't happen. And if Ds got control of both houses and impeached him Faux News would be screaming that is was all just politics. Sigh. And then we would have President Pence which would probably be worse.

Trump's biggest conflict is trying to hold onto the few threads of sanity he has left.

Even at that, he's still fighting a losing battle.
