Trump is always negotiating with himself

He announces something, then takes it back. Him caving on yet another deadline shows how weak his position is. China will "win" this dispute by simply being willing to wait him out, knowing he will be forced to give in before next year's election to prevent the economy from going downhill. If the economy turns sour, the democrats could beat him running Walter Mondale's corpse.
