I'm not sure I buy the theory that Trump became a multi-billionaire by sheer luck.  But in this case it doesn't really require being a wise dog or whatever.  Just common sense tells you that people don't offer good deals when you start by giving them everything they want up front.


Right, but there's a lot more to negotiations than that. You seem to have rejected what I've said.

I'm not telling you the end point of the negotiations.  I'm only stating the obvious which is that their will be negotiations.  If you mean that it's not clear that there will be a deal, you could be right.


That's not what I meant and I said nothing about there being a deal reached or not.

  It's possible that China will meekly go along with giving us 25% of their U.S. steel sales profits.  Possible, but highly unlikely.


You're wisely moderating your initial approach.

You sound imminently qualified to teach me then.  Just as you deferred to my expertise on reading interventions, I'll defer to yours on negotiations and await your words of wisdom.




You seem to have rejected what I've said and are only interested in your own theories. There's no use repeating what I've said. It's not going to change for you. If you show you are interested I might expand on it.
