Me on US-China relations


- Trump will say China begged for more time and the threat of tariffs are working

- Trump wants (needs) this issue for 2020 - regardless of the deal, some voters will say its weak soup - better for Trump to secure a deal in this second term

- This is more proof of the conscious uncoupling US-China style

- The negotiations are more about the next 15-20 years and not the next 15-20 months. Talks are focused on how will the US and China engage in the strategic industries of the future

- Team Trump is a coalition who see China as a winner take all battle, populist vs. nationalist and freedom vs. slave = big, big, big stakes

Enjoy the ride and plan accordingly.

Based in Washington, DC, I specialize in thought leader communications and global public policy for public affairs professionals working at the intersection of globalization, disruption, and politics.

Clients hire me to ghostwrite, engage influencer networks, manage media relations, produce events, audit their communications infrastructure, consult on hiring, provide issue briefs and news generating talking points, as well as manage end to end communications projects where I assume a role of project leader and general contractor.

I work independently but provided access to a substantial global network of collaborators with expertise in websites, graphic design, audio, video, polling, data analytics, and research.

Using the latest tactics of an American political campaign with expertise shaped by being a practitioner of global business communications, I help clients tell their story and build trusted relationships with all necessary stakeholders.

Successful communications are all about STOCK = strategy, tactics, organization, consistency, and know-how.
