    Even as China’s government has refused to comment on Trump’s diatribes, a survey of both official state media and social media networks reveals that a growing contingent of Chinese believe the mogul’s potential presidency could actually end up benefiting China—perhaps more so than a President Hillary Clinton, whose criticism of the country’s human rights record infuriates Chinese leaders. Some Chinese admire Trump’s glitzy businesses, big-name brand and candid personality. Others genuinely think the candidate’s “America First” foreign policy positions would give China the upper hand in Sino-American relations and allow more room for China to assert itself on the world stage.

    Better for the U.S. president to care about business deals than aggressively promoting America’s democratic values abroad or bolstering U.S. allies in Asia.

    American leftists need to worry about what the Chicoms think of them. Also, American leftists need to worry about public opinion in North Korea and Cuba and Mecca.
