“Basically they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, and we couldn’t do that.”
Shifting alliances on a diplomatic chess board
The new broom is sweeping up some unpleasant dust
Still not wanting to blame Trump directly, however
To the surprise of nobody
“China’s revenge will be far worse than detaining a Canadian.”
More lying liars who lie
Winter, er, Sanctions are Coming.
“The results are going to be revealed here.”
Jumping the gun a bit, aren’t we?
We’ll tell you where you can file your order, buddy
“The trade war is now a reality.”
You won’t like Viktor when he’s angry
“They have their dollar, we have our God.”
EU: We’ll protect European firms against US enforcement
North Korea: Stop being so impatient!
Senate: Get ready for “sanctions bill from Hell,” Russia.
“….or be prepared to face the consequences.”
From reset buttons to Red Scares, and vice versa.
Not a “wag the dog.”
A good start?
Sticking with the program… for now
Too clever by half?
Go ask your mother.
“President Trump has been incredibly clear about the sequencing.”
Swamp status: full.
And since when do they take China’s side?
Or a 12-step program to normality.
“Be cool, it will all work out!”
The unintended consequences will hurt everyone longterm.
But not really
Despite no additional US actions.
Speak and carry some big sticks.
“the blood that 10 of your kind will shed … in terms of vengeance”
Under the bus.
Three words: Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
