Beijing Butt-Kisser Extraordinaire, Sideshow Steve Harper, has slithered back into public view to praise what he predicts will be Donald Trump's hostility to China.
Harper says Trump will erase the past 70 years of American foreign policy and, to him, that's a good thing.
"Trump is going to reverse the cornerstone of American foreign policy," Harper said. "He is going to reject and reverse the idea that the U.S. has an overreaching responsibility for global affairs. The U.S. will cease to view the rise of China as essentially benign."
The former prime minister also said he thinks large, multilateral trade deals are "dead."
He said Trump's position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership makes it a "certainty" that the 12 country trade pact — which his government negotiated — will not see the light of day.
Oh, Steve, spare us the false modesty. You have much, much more in common with Donald Trump than you let on.
