The Kakistocracy Gains a Foothold in China


The Guardian has reported that, on the day Chinese President Xi Jinping met with President Don the Con and his daughter Ivanka, she gained preliminary approval for three new trademarks in China.  Ivanka markets products like jewellry and handbags under her own trademarks, and she has applied for over three dozen trademarks in China.  The approval will make it easier and more profitable for her to market her products in China, an emerging luxury market.  Business conditions for foreign firms are notoriously difficult in China, and Ivanka’s move into the territory will be greatly eased by her relationship with the kakistocrat-in-chief.  The opportunities for corrupt self-dealing are boundless in the new administration.
