Trump Adjusts Enemy Position On Checkers Board As China Trade War Escalates

WASHINGTON— Upon hearing that China would be willing to meet with U.S. commercial diplomats to renegotiate the parameters of a trade relationship between the two countries, Trump was reportedly scratching his chin as he slowly shifted an enemy piece on a checkers board. “Hm, a very interesting move, Mr. Jinping,” said the president as he carefully considered a countermove in the match. The president appeared to be using the game to model the dynamics of an extremely complex, multifaceted, and delicate international trade war between the two most powerful countries in the world. “Let’s see what you think of this, Xi,” continued the president as he double-jumped and captured two enemy pieces in a single move.
