    Donald Trump has been saying this for ages now. “The Chinese are eating our lunch!” and we are just letting them. This is crazzy. I guess they have 20X the amount of people in their country so the number of millionaires and billionaires compared to the US does make sense if we are looking at this on a ratio.

    D Trump for president, that is all I got to say.
