    Kevin Drum:
    Judd Legum has a tale to tell: Here's an AP story on the trademark award:

    The government of China awarded U.S. President Donald Trump valuable rights to his own name this week, in the form of a 10-year trademark for construction services. The registration became official on Feb. 14 and was published in a trademark registration announcement on the website of China's Trademark Office on Wednesday.

    Trump actually won this case on November 14, so the motivating factor may have been Trump's election win, not his reversal on the One China policy. On the other hand, the trademark only became effective because there were no objections in the 90 days after winning the case. If Trump had persisted in refusing to endorse One China, it's quite possible that an objection would have magically found its way into the record.

    Who knows? As with everything Trump, the truth is murky.

    Trump does illegal things every day. His whole Presidency is basically one illegal cluster****.

    But, laws don't apply when Republicans are in charge.

    Well, not being a "Politician" when entering the race for the Presidency, He ,SOON, learned , through the examples of the Democratic Party and the bias of the Media how things work in Washington and IS, just, continuing on the
    Traditions that have been well established by his predecessors.

    And , just to show, his understanding and commitment to Bipartisanship, he decided NOT to indict Hillary Clinton for all of her Crimes against the Constitution of the United States of America.

    To the Dismay of many of the Law the abiding American populous.

    Why do you not understand law or government? A President can't indict someone out of political animus.
