    Trump now openly asks China for help in the 2020 election

    Well if there was any doubt what his intent was with the Ukraine Call, we can lay that to rest.

    So now Trump just doubles down and of all things PUBLICLY asks Chine to 'investigate' the Biden's as well!

    It just never ends with this guy.

    Here's the BBC report.

    He's not so much asking China to assist his election efforts by digging dirt on possible opponents, as rubbishing his opposition - though it could and possibly would be taken as a suggestion that if the Chinese authorities provide anything damning on Joe Biden, Trump might reciprocate in some way.

    What happens next is likely to depend on whether the Chinese authorities would prefer Trump as US president rather than whoever (Rep or Dem) might replace him, and if not, whether any benefit of getting rid of Trump would be greater than the potential cost of antagonisation.

    That assumes Biden is going to be his opponent, which is unlikely and getting more improbable every day.

    And assumes Trump's motives in doing so.

    The Dems already told us there is no evidence of the Biden's unscrupulous behavior, so any thing that Trump has mentioned about China doing an investigation is therefore insignificant.

    The Dems already say that there is no evidence against the Bidens. Thus, any such investigation by the Ukraine or China is insignificant. No?

    I think I might respect Trump for his few interesting legislative moves: taking on China, eliminating veterans' student debt, and a few others. Minus his shooting himself in the foot (twice now) and his Twitter garbage, he'd be much more defendable. For every positive thing he's done as executive manager of the US, he sabotages himself double. It'd be maddening if I voted for him.

    I can't imagine his smarter voters are pleased with his consistent foot shooting.

    I have never heard that mentality attributed to the Mueller investigation.

    Republicans, never: "Oh, you're investigating Trump's secret ties to Russian oligarchs and government liaisons? Go right ahead, nothing to see there."

    Quite the reverse. It shows Trump is more frightened of Biden than anyone else and prepared to stop at nothing in his attempt to discredit him. Biden is the obvious challenger to Trump.
