Note -- I did my absolute best to refer to the Trump organization as "Trump organization" and president Trump only as "President" or "Administration" to avoid confusion as they are understood (At least, when you give them the benefit of the doubt) to be separate entities.
It was reported by the AP that China granted the Trump organization 38 trademarks that it's been doing ten years of legal proceedings to acquire. I'm going to give the current administration the benefit of the doubt and assume that this grant of trademarks was an attempt to curry favor with the Administration without being directly requested by the president or any of his subordinates. I am assuming based on the fact that the Trump Organization had so much trouble getting these trademarks through until the President had taken office and the large number was approved nearly simultaneously indicates foul play and an attempt to curry favor on the part of the Chinese government.
Assuming this is the case -- How can the current administration have any positive interaction that does not give the appearance of being based on a conflict of interest? Giving Concessions to China without (universally understood) equal benefit to the United States would have the appearance of giving way to conflict of interest, how can proper relations possibly continue?
