If Donald Trump is the bad guy who calls for protectionism, China is the one who calls for free trade. A week after  Trumps’ victory, the president of China, Xi Jinping, set off for Latin America in search of trade deals and improve China’s image in the US backyard. Last week, Xi travelled to Ecuador, Peru and Chile to look for trade agreements (basically, China imports from Lat Am raw materials like copper, iron and soybeans, in exchange for cheap manufactures) and to find new markets for its infrastructure companies.

Robin Moore is not unemployed, she isn’t a factory worker, she isn’t a white male: she is an affluent high educated wine consultant from Wisconsin who voted for Donald Trump, and has no regrets. Like many other women from the Midwest, Moore took Mr Trump seriously, but not literally, and expects him to have to compromise to get things done.
