Trump Ramps Up China Rhetoric with More Tweets

Donald Trump seems to be escalating his public rhetoric on China with his latest tweets. Facing criticism for having taken a call from Taiwan's PM in disregard of China's potential sensitivities, Trump has doubled down with some tough tweeting today:

The question is - how will China react? Will we see another North Korean missile test soon enough? America's traditional adversaries seem a little disconcerted by Trump's macho style, and none of them seems eager to be the first to dip their toe in the water to test him.
