As a minister’s daughter Angel Merkel is one of those nicer class of people who admitted that early on she had been naive about her dealings with China. Joe Biden is another of those nicer class of folks who voted for free trade with China because he was sure that as a result, China would become a democracy!
Unfortunately by the time Joe and Angela woke up and realized that they were both horribly wrong it was way too late to put Xi back in Pandora’s box! On the way out the door Angela claimed that the EU could not be taken for granted as some of its members succumbed to the “false temptation of acting in a purely national way” This from the nice lady who flooded Europe with millions of migrants!
And that is all I’m saying about that!
