Trump Is Under Increasing Pressure to Blow Up His China Deal Before Election Day
BloombergPresident Donald Trump bet the house that getting a sweetheart trade deal with the Chinese government would boost the American economy and his electoral odds before the election. Now, with that election less than 100 days away, some members of his inner circle are pushing him to make a new bet: that he'll win if he blows it all up.

Four people with knowledge of the situation tell The Daily Beast that in the past three weeks, an internal campaign has intensified within the Trump administration to convince the president to nuke the China trade deal—an international agreement that Trump has considered a crowning, legacy-defining process of his first term in office.

These efforts in the administration have been spearheaded by a variety of political aides, economic and policy advisers, and President Trump's perennial China hawks, including White House trade adviser Peter Navarro. Some of these officials have taken to showing Trump printed data, pictures, and charts that they claim demonstrate how China still is not buying American goods at a level high enough to satisfy the president's aims.

If Democrats Take the Senate, Our Democracy Is in a New Kind of Danger
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyThe best hope for America to get past Trumpism and experience a return to normalcy is for Republicans to hold the U.S. Senate.

Sounds crazy, right? Indulge me. Imagine this scenario: Joe Biden wins the presidency, and Democrats take the U.S. Senate. After enjoying a whirlwind of Biden's executive orders, progressives grow frustrated. Despite controlling everything, Democrats still can't pass most of their top agenda items (on the Green New Deal, say, or police reform, or immigration reform, or gun control) because of congressional gridlock as Republicans launch filibusters—the only tool at the minority party's disposal. And so Democrats, declaring that they can't let the party that gave us Donald Trump continue to impede progress, simply eliminate the filibuster, which can be done with a simple majority vote.

If you're a progressive, this all sounds great. By adopting any means necessary to advance your goals, you believe you are defeating Trumpism. I see it differently. I would see such a move as embracing Trumpism—or, at least, a form of it. That's because Trumpism is also about advancing authoritarian tendencies, prioritizing your base over the nation, and violating norms and institutions to consolidate power. That's not a "return to normalcy," and it's certainly not change we can believe in.
