Actually pissing off china is a great idea, for the reasons you've stated. China owns too much of our debt. Have you ever heard the saying: if you borrow a thousand dollars you're a slave to the lender, but if you borrow a million, the lender is a slave to you?
If china does anything major against us, anything we can claim is an act of war, we can invalidate the debt we owe them. They know this and they won't do anything other than publicly cry because they're on the losing end of this deal.
Russia on the other hand, we have no leverage against, other than military. They're the ones you don't want to piss off.

I'm waiting for him to talk to Kim Jong-Un.
Imagine the panic ....
The news media will be in such a state 😂
He would likely appoint Dennis Rodman as ambassador there. Now I would REALLY love to see that media blitz....
