There is no "alternative ending". China is literally backing a half billion to help a theme park with Trump properties.
A "theme park with
Trump properties". Interesting phrasing. The deal between the Trump organization and the Lido project was signed 3 years ago. It has nothing at all to do with anything happening now. One part of the project involves Trump branded stuff (a hotel and golf course I believe). That component is completely unrelated to the loans for other parts of the project, and unrelated to the construction contract granted to a Chinese company.
You're going to rapidly run into silliness if you insist that no company anywhere in the world that does any business with any company connected to Trump's businesses can also do business with any other company that has connections to any of a largish list of countries that you might choose on any given day to decide we shouldn't do business with. That's literally the connection here. It's likely saying that if you rent a spot in a mall, and the mall hires a company to do construction work on a restaurant on the other end of the mall, you're somehow connected directly with that deal. That's an absurd standard to try to apply.
There's a reason why even the mostly left leaning and anti-Trump mainstream media isn't jumping on this story, and it's relegated to online sources and gossip columns. It's an incredibly thin connection. Yes, I suppose you could argue that by obtaining a loan, the project gains solidity, and that this could mean financial gain for the part that Trump is involved in. But there's no indication that this loan was made with terms any different than any other loan from any other backer or source. And unlike say Obama handing out free money to businesses owned by people who supported his election using government money, this isn't a freaking subsidy. There's no reason to provide a quo to this quid because there's nothing gained here.
Not trade concessions but a $500mil real estate deal.
Except removal of tariffs on some US products. And (presumably) help with the NK stuff going on. And possibly other things that aren't so clear (or public) right now. There's are some tech related deals going on right now, that would seem to be far more likely related to a position on ZTE by the US as part of the negotiations. But let's ignore that and go with "unrelated business deal which may or may not actually benefit Trump at all".
I reject it because it's silly. May as well blame it on bigfoot or something.
