Cooperation with “Red China”

Summary:
Reader Ed Hanson remarks: Red China has been protectionist since its beginning. [A]nd certainly has since it joined the worldwide trade in the 80’s or so. Did protectionism make it weaker? In light of Mr. Trump’s remarks today: “China should start an investigation into the Bidens, because what happened in China is just about as bad as what happened with Ukraine.” What do people like Ed Hanson (I’m guessing old, and still worrying about Commies, but thinking Russians are ok) think Mr. Trump should bargain away in terms of trade sanctions on “Red China” in order to get that investigation?
