    I actually read somewhere that younger people in Japan were more likely to be supporters of Trump than older people. Which is the exact opposite of the US.

    And the lady at the 8:00 mark making a point about Trump’s economic achievements and the economic growth gets an automatic,” huh?” from me. What major economic accomplish did Trump make? The economy was in good shape left by him by his predecessor whom he denigrated for years and casting doubt of his citizenship. What real economic growth happen under Trump?

    She may think he helped stage the Parkland shooting, which she viewed as a false flag.

    Biden was a private citizen at the time, but I don't think that matters to her.

    Japan's politics have gone in a very right wing direction under Shinzo Abe, and Trump posed as tough on China which the Japanese like because they think they can recover their mojo from the '80s when they had this booming economy that led Americans to fear (xenophobically) they'll take over, and so on. But then the '90s happened, and China took off.

    She also thinks 9/11 was an inside job.

    All Politics are local. The US can't assume our socio-cultural-economic motives synch with anybody elses.

    I know Americans are ill-equiped to think that way, but - especially after the recent EU decision on Chinese Relations - we damned well better get used to it.

    They don't entirely synch with Americans as it is.

    DeGaulle said, "Nations don't have friends, only interests."

    And some of Trump's actions are in the interests of democracies like Japan and Taiwan, the former governed by a very right-wing administration, the latter by a social democrat.

    None of this is exceptional or to Trump's credit of course, merely natural politics.

    Geopolitically, Trump's basically compromised the Transatlantic realtionship to the extent that the EU does deals with China independent of Washington, and that raises China's profile and Xi Jinping's sense of impunity. The trade war with China was a huge failure and now Taiwan is in great danger of being absorbed by China.

    The result is that some of Pompeo's moves in his last month, like sending a US ambassador to Taiwan, recognizing the Uighur persecution as genocide, have now become necessary thanks to the conditions created by Trump.

    Which the GOP Senate investigated, and inadvertently proved there was no criminality or malfeasance months ago. Not from a lack of the dumbest man in the Senate, Ron Johnson, from trying.

    I just realized that the GOP were like, "WE HAVE OUR OWN VERSION OF THE SQUAD NOW! LOOKIT THESE FRESH YOUNG FACES!"

    Those folks in their "new blood"? The 2020 "Young Guns"? Boebert, Greene, Cawthorne are three of them. Like, the majority of the Squad the GOP just got are likely going to get expelled for sedition.

    Meanwhile, they're trying to push Liz Cheney out the door. There are fewer an fewer women in the GOP caucus and the ones they're ushering in may as well be using a revolving door because they're too stupid to not try to overthrow the government if they can't control all three branches of it.
