Trump auctions America ... or anyway that's my guess

As Donald Trump prepares to take the presidential reins in the U.S. and thence to auction off the rest of the U.S., China seems poised to make its move and buy the store out.  Eeeeee-haw, there's gold in them-thar hills and if Donald gets his cut, everything will be fine.

It is hard to imagine what Trump might do after Jan. 20 when he is scheduled to be inaugurated. Running a country is only as fun as proving you can do it.

But China takes a long view of things and may be the perfect customer for Trump and his fire-sale.
DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) -- China is taking the world's most elite annual gathering by storm.
President Xi Jinping leads a Chinese delegation of over 100 officials and scores of business executives attending the World Economic Forum, embodying a tectonic shift at an event that started nearly a half-century ago among Europeans and Americans.
Xi's opening plenary address Tuesday to political and business leaders is shaping up as perhaps the highlight both of this year's WEF and Xi's one-country European visit to ultra-stable and chronically neutral Switzerland.
"The two countries will strive to maintain world peace and stability, promote common development and jointly maintain a global trade system which is open and tolerant," Xi told reporters at a joint briefing with Swiss President Doris Leuthard on Monday. "We will push global governance toward a fairer and more reasonable direction."
