Donald Trump: Obama Praise of China in State of the Union was Inappropriate"

1/26/11 - Here is Donald Trump reacting to President Obama's State of the Union Address yesterday. Trump said Obama's praise of China - who he says is "not our friend" - was "inappropriate."

Joining the chorus of people not pleased with President Obama's State of the Union address is Donald Trump who has a very specific complaint: "I thought the low point was when [Obama] talked about how great China was." Trump might simply be angry with how China is manipulating their currency and making it difficult for him to do business overseas, or might Trump actually be ramping up criticism of Obama in case he actually does decide to run for President?

Trump declared "I understand the Chinese, and I understand they are not a friend of this country." He also was not pleased that Obama's speech largely ignored the likely impending crisis of state bankruptcies and instead was "mostly talk." In addition to his displeasure over Obama praising China, he did not approve of the recent trade treaty with South Korea, which Trump says is horrible for us. The grim reality, in Trump's view, is that "we have become a whipping post for many of the smart countries around the world."
