President Trump has been characteristically wishy-washy on China. During the 2015-16 primary campaign, he ripped China to anyone who would listen – so often that bassist Iggy Jackson Cohen made a music video out of it.
Then, Trump turned on the charm with President Xi of China…because the Chinese were desperately needed to help solve a crisis he could not contain in North Korea.
Lately, the administration has gotten back to criticizing China and roiling international tension. But a particular shopping mall in China has been causing a little stir of their own with Trump as a foil.
Last year was the Chinese Year of the Rooster. The mall erected a giant Rooster modeled after our POTUS

In case you’re not giggling yet, the same Taiyuan shopping mecca went all-out for this holiday season. Donald Trump was born in a Year of the Dog, and 2018 is going to be a Year of the Dog.
Yep. You guessed it…

The finger wag makes the piece, no? It’s as if Trump is admonishing the happy shoppers of Asia to stop having fun.
