If you owe the Chinese a little money, they own you. If you owe them a lot of money, you own them. The US owes them north of $1.2T. The US could hit their economy by better than 10% by writing erasing that debt. That's not counting closing down imports from them. That would damage the US economy badly, but that move would drop China into a deep depression.

I'm not voting for Trump, but I doubt it would be any better with Clinton. Just ask yourself this: Has wealth distribution in the U.S. gotten better or worse during Obama's 8 years. Most people would say "The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer." Now, is that trend likely to continue with Clinton? If not, how is she going to change it?

The Clintons will get richer. That is for sure.
