Do you understand Obama is still the president? I have a suggestion. Tell him to tell China that it had better give up the drone, or else.

Numerous times, Washington has ordered Navy surface warships into the South China Sea to debunk Chinese claims on the SCS ... international waters that contain some of the busiest maritime shipping routes in the world.

Beijing recognized an opportunity here to bully an unarmed US naval ship and deliver a subtle message to a PE Trump who has threatened to recognize Taiwan.

There is no evidence Beijing knew about this before it happened. I think everyone is making a bigger thing out of the message behind this. What is clear is that Trump is a moron.

I see few here understand the facts.

The Ship was Owned by the US Navy but was under private contract to map the area. It is officially a Research vessel operated by civilians who had not defense or authority to use a defense.

The Chinese came within a 1/4 mile of the US Flagged vessel and simply snatched the device as it surfaced by a hand grab into a small speed boat from a Chinese flagged Sub tender surface ship.

The data being collected is likely unclassified but it's collection was for the purpose of creating a data base for our own sub operations in the area,,, "should we chose to do so."

There is no classified data or secret technology devices on the drone. It might cost $150K but a single cruise missile ( Of which we launched hundreds into Libya) cost 7 times as much.

So Trump's point is "Your bad manners have awarded you nothing of ours that's worth a negotiation. Keep it."

ART OF THE DEAL..; a good read.

I think we should trade Obama for the drone.

I think we should trade you. But you are worthless so that won't work.

I see the same right wingers have already derailed this thread because they are unable to defend their emperor god.

But the worst part about this, is that Trump would have already known that the Chinese were already giving the Drone back before both his stupid ass tweets if he had read his Presidential Daily Briefing.

Or he could have even just contacted the State Department or the Pentagon....

I have an idea.

Why not do something substantive to get China's attention, the next time they pull a stunt such as this?

Like, say, sink one of their ships.

I certainly would bet that that would get their attention...

I think the question is what would Trump have done, not whether or not he is even concerned what Obama has done.
You keep mixing and mincing words so you can make up your own snarky's.
Not cool at all. And certainly not honest.

Whats not honest about the fact that if Trump had read is PDB, he would have known before he made his tweet that China was already giving the drone back? Instead he deletes his original tweet and replaces it with some snarky bull**** about letting china keep it. I know its gotta be difficult to defend him all the damn time, but maybe you should just start admitting when he does something stupid instead of trying to change the subject.

Your going to miss having a grownup in the white house.
