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.

From small construction companies in Dallas, Texas, to chains of Mexican restaurants in San Francisco and orange farms in Florida: all these small businesses confirm they are dependent on low skilled workers (like Mexican workers) to keep growing, according to a report elaborated by The Wall Street Journal.

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.

The Trump Tower, home of a reality show, a shopping center, and a headquarters’ campaign, has become the private office of Donald Trump until he gets the Oval. His decision has forced the Secret Service and the New York City Police Department to devise an elaborate protection plan for at least the next two months. Trump is expected to pick up his Cabinet in the weeks to come, while people outside complain that they cannot go inside the Tower to shop their Gucci bags.

[OP-ED]: No se vayan a Canadá, todavía...
Spanish

Esta semana estuve en Detroit, pero no tuve ninguna intención de cruzar la frontera con Canadá—  y estaba allí mismo, a pocos pies de distancia. ¿Por qué? Porque siento que los Estados Unidos —y Filadelfia en particular— son mi hogar, hoy más que nunca.
