以下是美国共和党总统候选人 川普 关于中国的一些观点。从中可以发现,川普 的观点保持着高度的一致性和连贯性,他不是一般的反华,而且他很精准地瞄向了支那赵家统治集团的软肋。他这么反华,怪不得连支那赵家都开始支持他的竞争对手「女克林顿」了!


Be tougher on China-we’re too eager to please

Our biggest long-term challenge will be China. The Chinese people still have few political rights to speak of. Chinese government leaders, though they concede little, desperately want us to invest in their country. Though we have the upper hand, we’re way to eager to please. We see them as a potential market and we curry favor with them at the expense of our national interests. Our China policy under Presidents Clinton and Bush has been aimed at changing the Chinese regime by incentives both economic and political. The intention has been good, but it’s clear that the Chinese have been getting far too easy a ride.
Despite the opportunity, I think we need to take a much harder look at China. There are major problems that too many at the highest reaches of business want to overlook, [primarily] the human-rights situation.

China: lack of human rights prevents consumer development

Why am I concerned with political rights? I’m a good businessman and I can be amazingly unsentimental when I need to be. I also recognize that when it comes down to it, we can’t do much to change a nation’s internal policies. But I’m unwilling to shrug off the mistreatment of China’s citizens by their own government. My reason is simple: These oppressive policies make it clear that China’s current government has contempt for our way of life.
We want to trade with China because of the size of its consumer market. But if the regime continues to repress individual freedoms, how many consumers will there really be? Isn’t it inconsistent to compromise our principles by negotiating trade with a country that may not want and cannot afford our goods?
We have to make it absolutely clear that we’re willing to trade with China, but not to trade away our principles, and that under no circumstances will we keep our markets open to countries that steal from us.

Support Russia, but with strings attached

I don’t understand why American policymakers are always so timid in dealing with Russia on issues that directly involve our survival. Kosovo was a perfect case in point: Russia was holding out its hand for billions of dollars in IMF loans (to go along with billions in aid the U.S. has given) the same week it was issuing threats and warnings regarding our conduct in the Balkans. We need to tell Russia and other recipients that if they want our dime they had better do our dance, at least in matters regarding our national security. These people need us much more than we need them. We have leverage, and we are crazy not to use it to better advantage.
Few respect weakness. Ultimately we have to deal with hostile nations in the only language they know: unshrinking conviction and the military power to back it up if need be. There and in that order are America’s two greatest assets in foreign affairs.


我十分不理解我们的政策制定者在和俄罗斯处理和我们生存息息相关的事物的时候总那么畏手畏脚。科索沃就是个典型例子,俄罗斯一方面伸出手来向 IMF 申请数十数百亿美元的贷款(其实也是美国的钱)一边威胁我们在巴尔干的行动。我们需要告诉俄罗斯以及其他接受我们援助的人,如果你们要从美国得到帮助,那么就得按照我们的步调来,起码要尊重我们的安全。他们需要我们美国远甚于我们需要他们。我们拥有杠杆,如果我们没有用之给我们带来优势,那简直是疯了。

Post-Cold War: switch from chess player to dealmaker

In the modern world you can’t very easily draw up a simple, general foreign policy. I was busy making deals during the last decade of the cold war. Now the game has changed. The day of the chess player is over. Foreign policy has to be put in the hands of a dealmaker.
Two dealmakers have served as president-one was Franklin Roosevelt, who got us through WWII, and the other was Richard Nixon, who forced the Russians to the bargaining table to achieve the first meaningful reductions in nuclear arms.
A dealmaker can keep many balls in the air, weigh the competing interests of other nations, and above all, constantly put America’s best interests first. The dealmaker knows when to be tough and when to back off. He knows when to bluff and he knows when to threaten, understanding that you threaten only when prepared to carry out the threat. The dealmaker is cunning, secretive, focused, and never settles for less than he wants. It’s been a long time since America had a president like that.

Criticized Buchanan’s view on Hitler as appeasement

In Buchanan’s book, he actually said the Western allies were wrong to stop Hitler. He argued that we should have let Hitler take all of the territories to his east. What of the systematic annihilation of Jews, Catholics, and Gypsies in those countries? You don’t have to be a genius to know that we were next, that once Hitler seized control of the countries to his east he would focus on world domination.
Pat Buchanan was actually preaching the same policy of appeasement that had failed for Neville Chamberlain at Munich. If we used Buchanan’s theory on Hitler as a foreign policy strategy, we would have appeased every world dictator with a screw loose and we’d have a brainwashed population ready to go postal on command.
After I [wrote an article on this for] Face the Nation, Buchanan accused me of 「ignorance.」 Buchanan, who believes himself an expert, has also called Hitler 「a political organizer of the first rank.」 Buchanan is a fan.



布坎南:Pat Buchanan,美国 paleoconservative 主义政治家,原白宫通讯联络主任。目前 paleoconservative 这个词没有合适的支那文翻译,古自由主义。其理念是限制政府,文化保守,强调西方符号和身份认同,反联邦主义。

Things change; empires come and go

A lot of life is about survival of the fittest and adaption, as Darwin pointed out. It’s not all there is, but it’s an indication of how the world has evolved in historical terms. We’ve seen many empires come and go–the Roman Empire, the Ottoman Empire- there have always been surges of power. Sometimes they last for centuries. Even so, some of us have never learned of them as of today. In other words, things change. We have to keep up with the changes and move forward.

By 2027, tsunami as China overtakes US as largest economy

There is a lot that Obama and his globalist pals don’t want you to know about China’s strength. But no one who knows the truth can sit back and ignore how dangerous this economic powerhouse will be if our so-called leaders in Washington don’t get their acts together and start standing up for American jobs and stop outsourcing them to China. It’s been predicted that by 2027, China will overtake the United States as the world’s biggest economy–much sooner if the Obama economy’s disastrous trends continue. That means in a handful of years, America will be engulfed by the economic tsunami that is the People’s Republic of China–my guess is by 2016 if we don’t act fast.
For the past thirty years, China’s economy has grown an average 9 to 10 percent each year. In the first quarter of 2011 alone, China’s economy grew a robust 9.7 percent. America’s first quarter growth rate? An embarrassing and humiliating 1.9 percent. It’s a national disgrace.

When you love America, you protect it with no apologies

I love America. And when you love something, you protect it passionately–fiercely, even. We are the greatest country the world has ever known. I make no apologies for this country, my pride in it, or my desire to see us become strong and rich again. After all, wealth funds our freedom. But for too long we’ve been pushed around, used by other countries, and ill-served by politicians in Washington who measure their success by how rapidly they can expand the federal debt, and your tax burden, with their favorite government programs.
American can do better. I think we deserve the best. That’s why I decided to write this book. The decisions we face are too monumental, too consequential, to just let slide. I have answers for the problems that confront us. I know how to make American rich again.

China is our enemy; they’re bilking us for billions

China is bilking us for hundreds of billions of dollars by manipulating and devaluing its currency. Despite all the happy talk in Washington, the Chinese leaders are not our friends. I’ve been criticized for calling them our enemy. But what else do you call the people who are destroying your children’s and grandchildren’s future? What name would you prefer me to use for the people who are hell bent on bankrupting our nation, stealing our jobs, who spy on us to steal our technology, who are undermining our currency, and who are ruining our way of life? To my mind, that’s an enemy. If we’re going to make America number one again, we’ve got to have a president who knows how to get tough with China, how to out-negotiate the Chinese, and how to keep them from screwing us at every turn.


中国正在通过操控汇率来偷取我们数以千亿美元的财富。撇开华盛顿那帮自以为是的乐观主义,中国领导层从来不是我们的朋友。我因为称中国为我们的敌人而被批评。但是对于那些正在摧毁的你的孩子和你的子孙的未来的家伙,除了敌人之外还有别的什么词嘛?对于那些正在让我们的国家破产,盗取我们的工作,偷取我们的技术,削弱我们的货币,摧毁我们的生活方式的家伙,你希望我用什么词来形容他们?在我眼里,这就是一个敌人。如果我们要让美国重回 NUMBER 1,我们需要一个总统,知道如何应对中国,知道如何驾驭与中国的谈判,知道如何让中国休想占我们一分一毫便宜。

Support NATO, but it’s not us against Russia

Q: You wrote, “Pulling back from Europe would save this country millions of dollars annually. The cost of stationing NATO troops in Europe is enormous. And these are clearly funds that can be put to better use.” Would you want to end the NATO alliance completely?
TRUMP: I’m a little concerned about NATO from this standpoint. Take Ukraine. We’re leading Ukraine. Where’s Germany? Where are the countries of Europe leading? I don’t mind helping them. Why isn’t Germany leading this charge? Why is the United States? I mean, we’re like the policemen of the world. And why are we leading the charge in Ukraine?
Q: So you wouldn’t allow Ukraine into NATO?
TRUMP: I would not care that much. Whether it goes in or doesn’t go in, I wouldn’t care. Look, I would support NATO.
Q: It sounds like you’re not a fan of NATO
TRUMP: I’m a fan of fairness. I’m a fan of common sense. I’m certainly not a fan of us being against Russia. Why are we always at the forefront of everything?


Q:你写到,「要从欧洲撤出军队可以给国家省非常多的钱,每年给北约驻军的花费非常巨大,这些款项很显然可以用到更好的地方」 你的意思是要彻底解散北约联盟么?

Cuban embargo: 50 years is enough

Breaking ranks with nearly all of his fellow 2016 Republican contenders, Donald Trump says he supports President Barack Obama’s decision to reengage diplomatically with Cuba. “50 years is enough,” Trump said, referring to Obama’s decision to re-establish U.S. ties with Cuba. “I think it’s fine, but we should have made a better deal,” Trump added. “The concept of opening with Cuba is fine.”
Trump joins libertarian-leaning Sen. Rand Paul as the only Republican running for president to express his support for normalizing relations with Cuba. The rest of the GOP field has slammed Obama’s decision to reopen the U.S. embassy in Havana and engage diplomatically with the government of Cuba.

We must deal with the maniac in North Korea with nukes

[With regards to the Iranian nuclear deal]: Nobody ever mentions North Korea where you have this maniac sitting there and he actually has nuclear weapons and somebody better start thinking about North Korea and perhaps a couple of other places. You have somebody right now in North Korea who has got nuclear weapons and who is saying almost every other week, “I’m ready to use them.” And we don’t even mention it.

Putin has no respect for America; I will get along with him

Q: What would you do right now if you were president, to get the Russians out of Syria?
TRUMP: Number one, they have to respect you. He has absolutely no respect for President Obama. Zero. I would talk to him. I would get along with him. I believe I would get along with a lot of the world leaders that this country is not getting along with. I think I will get along with Putin, and I will get along with others, and we will have a much more stable world.

China totally controls North Korea; they’re just taunting us

Without China, North Korea doesn’t even eat. China is ripping us on trade. They’re devaluing their currency and they’re killing our companies. We’ve lost between four and seven million jobs because of China. What I said then was, “we have very unfair trade with China. We’re going to have a trade deficit of 505 billion dollars this year with China. I would start taxing goods that come in from China.

China should make Kim Jong Un disappear

Trump was asked how he would respond to North Korea’s nuclear threat. “I would get China to make that guy disappear in one form or another very quickly,” Trump said. He didn’t clarify whether disappearing was equivalent to being assassinated but said, “Well, I’ve heard of worse things, frankly.”
“I mean, this guy’s a bad dude, and don’t underestimate him,” Trump said, referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. “Any young guy who can take over from his father with all those generals and everybody else that probably want the position, this is not somebody to be underestimated.”
Trump maintained that China has control over North Korea and the US has control over China–thus “China should do that,” he said. “China has control–absolute control–over North Korea. Theyc don’t say it, but they do,” Trump explained. “And they should make that problem disappear. China is sucking us dry. They’re taking our money. They’re taking our jobs. We have rebuilt China with what they’ve taken out.”
