Xi Jinping “wants to make China great again,” says Terry Branstad, former President Trump’s Ambassador to China. “I would not call [the U.S./China relationship] nearly as bad as it was before President Nixon went to China.”
The audio of Trump with the Georgia secretary of state. Wow. It’s like telling the Nixon tapes to “hold my beer.”
The difference between now and the Watergate era isn't the severity of misconduct— Trump's abuse of power poses a greater threat to our national security than anything Nixon did. The difference today is the apparent willingness of many Republicans to put party over country.
President Trump’s efforts to cover up his betrayal of his oath of office almost make the things Nixon did look small.
