Would it be too cynical to say China just ambushed Trudeau on trade talks?

Justin Trudeau arrived in China fully expecting on Monday to announce the launch of formal free trade talks. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang wasn’t having it

My guess is the Chinese realize they’re dealing with an idiot.

    why would we want free trade with a country that is built on the economic lies of communism?

    • Canadian Born

      According to Junior that is what Canadians want. Boy he couldn’t be more out of touch with what Canadians want.

      • Harper had trade deals with China, but it was in Canada’s benefit — exporting our oil. But Trudeau Liberal and NDP opposition to oil has probably buried forever that big ticket money item. Maybe that’s why the Chinese are pissed off.

        I dunno, maybe exile81 could enlighten us on that.

        • Harper ran deals with China because he did. Nothing we do with China benefits us. At least Harper had the good grace not to admire that pollution-ridden crap-hole.

          The Chinese are very unhappy with Canada to begin with because they can’t get their product from huge resource investments in the Oil Sands to the West Coast as the Northern Gateway pipeline was cancelled. Sooner or later the pipeline is going to get built and Canada won’t have much say in the matter. The Kinder Morgan expansion pipeline was approved but not sure if they have even started construction yet because of all the B.C. opposition.
          Justine is out of his league in dealing with a hardline Chinese gov’t. They are not stupid players and have experience all over the world buying up resources and negotiating with some of the most corrupt countries. So for Justine to start negotiating a business trade deal with China and make demands on other issues like climate change, human rights, etc. is laughable. China is the second biggest economic market in the world and is catching up to the U.S. Canada is a two-bit player in about tenth spot.

          • I agree, Harper did seem to give too much control to the Chinese on their oil investments here. But surely there’s a middle ground. I get the feeling that Harper may have been a little too desperate, because Obama was shutting down the new pipelines to the south.

            Simple: renegotiation — take the Trump approach. But not a snowball’s chance in hell that our clown snowboard instructor Junior is up to the task, he doesn’t give a s**t about oil anyway. He’s probably busy with the Chinese trying to negotiate Tranny bathrooms or gender-sensitive pronouns.

            (Btw, does Mandarin even have pronouns?) 🙂

        you over estimate the IQs of Canadians

    • Because Justin is a whore.

      • Surele Surele

        hey, don’t offend whores!

      • WalterBannon

        Justine was unable to actually get a job as a whore, he had to settle for a part time job as a drama teacher queen

        I bet he cried ……
        On his return Chrystia Freeland will plan a pajama { a baby-doll } party at the big doll-house on the hill , it’s their party and they’ll cry if they want too, you would cry too if it happen to you …….
        Chrystia’s , Just-in’s and Gerald Butt’s tears will make their baby-dolls even more transparent …. hey…….. that’s the Liberal transparency they are always talking about.

      Don’t forget counterfeiting. That’s their thing. And we need it.

        ha, that’s a spoof, its missing the spelling errors

    • WalterBannon

      why would we want a douche for PM….

      same reason: because Canada is full of idiots

  • mauser 98
    • Canada elected an idiot.

      • BillyHW

        Canada deserves him.

      • ntt1

        that is the bottom line ,after all the arguments he is just an idiot

    • Liberal Progressive

      Does that mean the Chinese aren’t going to donate to the Trudeau Foundation?

  • SDMatt

    I can’t wait until this China trade deal goes through – think of all the Chinese crap we’ll have on our store shelves!!!

    • Yeah, me too. I’m sick of seeing stuff only made in Canada, the U.S. and Germany. Would be nice to see the occasional product made in China for a change.

      • shasta

        “I don’t have a girlfriend”

        That is something that might be worthwhile importing from China.

        • Something another family member has already done. After all, they do make good back-scratchers.

      There’s more poisonous junk and food to be had?

  • JJ Hunsecker

    Maybe they never fell for the old Chairman Mao socks shtick.

  • Blind Druid

    He probably went waltzing in there, much like he did with Trump, virtue signalling his pretty hair ass off, and demanding that LGBT WTF rights and Gullible Warming be an integral part of the negotiating agenda. At a meeting about TRADE, about MONEY, in fricking CHINA! I guess his Daddy never told him to not trust anybody you can blindfold with dental floss. Even Trump knows that, behind his toothy grin.

    • That’s pretty much what happened, the Chinese showed him how stupid he is.

    • JJ Hunsecker

      Tried to get the Chinese to cut their muzzy Uighurs some slack.

    • WalterBannon

      I wonder if he complained about their thousands of new coal fired power stations???

  • clownloach

    They can recognize a jizya paying dhimmi traitor to humanity and do not wish to support jihad?

    • They realize he will come back on hands and knees and blow the entire communist party for a deal no matter how bad for Canada. So long as he gets a few selfies to show his friends.

  • Trudeau is a useful idiot.

    This is not news.

  • chayisun

    “We’re pleased to continue exploratory discussions towards a comprehensive agreement,” Trudeau said …….He said THIS? All by himself?? This dolt can’t put a sentence together without stumbling along and absolutely not making ANY sense and we are expected to believe this sham, this egotistical twit said that. Please.
    The Chinese are no doubt rolling on the floor laughing at this inept creature and chuckling at Canadians for voting for this puff piece.

      He’s connected at the umbilical cord to Gerry Butts who must be close by, perhaps disguised as one of the flight attendants if he is not part of the official delegation.

      • Reader

        Gerald Butts, Justin and MP Arif Virani all lived together when they went to McGill University.

        • WalterBannon

          Justin keeps his hair shiny by shoving his head up Gerald’s Butt

    “My guess is the Chinese realize they’re dealing with an idiot.”…..hell, yeah, but would they not be tempted to make a deal with an idiot?

  • Sunshine

    He doesn’t have the expertise to deal with China. Therefore, anything that humiliates him is fine by me. That will be a long plane trip coming back with nothing to show for it.
    I just don’t understand why he went there, the guy is clueless but he doesn’t know it.

    • WalterBannon

      He doesn’t have the expertise to boil an egg

  • ntt1

    what kind of idiot laminates gender crap on top of his opening thoughts on free trade?

    • WalterBannon

      is that a rhetorical question

  • vimy

    They didn’t treat him any differently then any other eunuch in the imperial court.

  • ontario john

    This is the idiot who has stalled NAFTA talks because of his insistence on including whiny indian issues, global warming scams, and equity demands. Meanwhile it would be better for both Canada and the U.S. if we just ditched Mexico from the agreement.
