Donald Trump, the “master negotiator,” is unsurprisingly… Not a good negotiator. Like, at all. Quite frankly, he’s managed to get just about the whole entire world pissed off at us. The only ones that are still half-ass okay with him are North Korea and Russia. And, well, I don’t even have to tell you why that is.
But most recently to find themselves on the shitty side of a pissing contest with Donald Trump is China. As they meddle through Trump’s ridiculous trade war, Chinese citizens have taken to protests against Chinese President Xi Jinping, which Donald referred to as “riots” earlier this month.
Trump was questioned about the issues in Hong Kong again today during a press gaggle in Morristown, New Jersey and referred to the situation as “tricky” stating, “The Hong Kong thing is a very tough situation — very tough. We’ll see what happens.”
“It’s a very tricky situation. I think it will work out and I hope it works out, for liberty. I hope it works out for everybody, including China,” he continued. “I hope it works out peacefully. I hope nobody gets hurt. I hope nobody gets killed.”

But it seems that Donald didn’t get it all out of his system on the tarmac, as he soon took to Twitter to rant about the ordeal a little further — whining about the fact that he’s catching all the blame.
“Many are blaming me, and the United States, for the problems going on in Hong Kong. I can’t imagine why?” Trump’s petulant tweet read.

But don’t you worry, Twitter users had a plethora of answers for him:
Because you’re dumb as fuck, generally clueless and have a real hard time standing up for people who want freedom.

Because we can no longer say “hey, authoritarian regime with egregious human rights violations, you can be rich like the US without human rights violations and without leaders who would curtail democracy, so please stop this.”

Because you are a racist dumbfuck asshole who divides nations? I could be wrong. I don’t think so.

Maybe it’s because you’re a toxic waste dump and you make everything in the nation and the world worse simply getting out of bed in the morning.https://t.co/IosJTXmLUf

You literally approved of China’s Tiananmen Square crackdown—which killed hundreds if not thousands of people—because you claimed it showed “strength”…
So yes, now that you’re president, is it any wonder why China thinks it can do whatever the fuck it wants with Hong Kong?

For future reference, maybe don’t ask questions you don’t want the answer to.
