Thanks to Trump. China had a booming year in retail. To thank Trump for his support, China is saying thank you with a big statue in Trump’s honor. They will even ring in the New Year 2018 as ‘Year of the Dog’ in China.
As reported in the Conservative Tribune it seems a mall in China erected a statue of Trump as a gigantic dog, symbolizing 2018 being “Year of the Dog” in China.
FashionWalk, a shopping mall in Taiyuan, Shanxi province, erected the statue that contains many of Trump’s notable features, including his power red tie, his finger pointing upward, and his signature hair style.
A Chinese shopping center is bringing in the Year of the Dog with a dog statue inspired by US President Donald #Trump in the city of Taiyuan, in northern China’s Shanxi province.
As noted by Newsweek, Trump was born in 1946, the Year of the Dog, according to the Chinese zodiac.
“The presidential canine signals the country’s celebration of ‘The Year of the Dog’ that will begin on February 16, 2018. The Chinese New Year, also called the Lunar New Year, is celebrated based on the lunar-solar Chinese calendar and its corresponding zodiac animal,” Newsweek reported. “As the country ushers out 2017 as the Year of the Rooster, people are readying to welcome 2018 the Year of the Dog — which is also the Chinese zodiac sign of Trump.”
Those born in the Year of the Dog are believed to strongly possessed traits such as loyalty, honesty, and a strong sense of responsibility, according to China Highlights.
Now, if this were a private shopping mall in the United States erecting a statue to a foreign leader, it could well mean nothing more than the fact that the property’s owners or managers admired the country. But this statue is in China, where the communist state controls the economy, and all businesses eventually answer to the government.
That means the Chinese government approves of this statue, which means it could well represent the Trump administration strengthening relationship with China.
Following his trip to China last month, Trump announced that the U.S. had secured roughly $250 billion in deals between China and various American businesses.
Trump’s continued efforts to bolster trade deals with China — which in turn creates jobs in America — has helped solidify a bond between the two nations, which potentially creates new opportunities for deals in the future.
Desperate to levy attacks against Trump, liberals are incorrectly claiming that the statue was erected to insult Trump.
China understands the ‘Art of a Deal’. It also understands that Trump wants to ‘Make America Great Again’. China just showed some respect by building that stature of Trump as it symbolizes renewed leadership in America.
On the other hand, Trump is not happy about the recent satellite pictures that seem to show China sending oil to North Korea. Trump ripped China and accused them of illegally selling oil to North Korea in violation of the UN sanctions over its nuclear program.
A spokeswoman for the Chinese foreign ministry insisted that Beijing has worked to implement United Nations Security Council Resolutions regarding sanctions against North Korea and that reports indicating otherwise were incorrect.
“China has always implemented U.N. Security Council resolutions pertaining to North Korea in their entirety and fulfills its international obligations,” the spokeswoman, Hua Chunying said, according to Reuters.
“We never allow Chinese companies and citizens to violate the resolutions,” she added.
Trump later acknowledged in a New York Times interview that he saw the report on Fox News.
“It was very recently,” the president told the Times. “In fact, I hate to say, it was reported this morning, and it was reported on Fox.”
“The Chinese side has conducted immediate investigation,” Hua said, according to Reuters. “In reality, the ship in question has, since August, not docked at a Chinese port and there is no record of it entering or leaving a Chinese port.”
Talk about Trump and ‘The ‘Art of the Deal’. There’s a new sheriff in town and China is not about to screw that up. Trump is all business.
