Beijing ‘strongly dissatisfied’ as Trump signs Taiwan Travel Act

When Trump first became president of the USA, he took a phone call from Taiwan. Now he will allow officials from the two country to meet.
So while Winnie the pooh has brought back the dynasty, at least trump is one world leader who doesn't completely worship the ccp.

And maybe the only one (world leader). Bravo Trump -- I guess even a nearsighetd hog roots up a truffle now and then.

I was under the impression that pigs rooted up truffles by smell, not by sight.

[A]nything at all that is well spoken is the word of the Buddha.

The different sūtras in accord with the emptiness
taught by the Sugata are definitive in meaning;
One can understand that all of those Dharmas in
which a sentient being, individual, or person are taught are provisional in meaning.
