Why China Is Secretly Rooting for a Donald Trump Presidency

After all the nasty things he's said about China, Donald Trump should be the most hated American there.

But he isn't. Despite Trump's campaign promises to get tough on China, many people of that nation – including the leaders in Beijing – are actually hoping Donald Trump wins in November.

As strange as it seems, the Chinese actually have a lot of good reasons to cheer for Donald Trump...

How China Will Trigger a Global Stock Market Crash

Although some fear that the Chinese government is deliberately working to create a global stock market crash that would make their country the most dominant economy, the reality is much more frightening.

You see, China's 30-year economic boom has been built on a very shaky foundation. And that foundation is on the verge of collapse.

Here's why the Chinese economy is on the brink of spinning out of control...

G20 Conspiracy Theory: The Secret "Shanghai Accord" to Kill the U.S. Dollar

China's Middle Class Will Fork Over $1 Trillion for This Must-Have Service by 2020

Global investors are concerned about the undeniable slowdown in the Chinese economy, but that obsessive focus on bottom-line economic growth means that people are missing out.

You see, there are immense shifts underway in China right now. The economy is maturing, and a recognizable middle class – already larger than the United States' at 109 million people – is coming into existence… in a country where a middle class was once unthinkable and indeed prohibited.

This means the country's economy is transforming into a consumer-driven one, much like the United States'.

Companies the world over, like Apple Inc., Toyota Motor Corp., and Koninklijke Phillips NV, are already making a killing in China, supplying the Chinese middle class' every material desire.

But those firms that can provide for this group's basic needs effectively have a license to print money now.

That's where the company I'm about to show you comes in; no human can live without it for very long.

This company has a virtual lock on one of the fastest-growing segments in China, but you can easily buy its shares on the New York Stock Exchange.

And even better, those shares are on sale right now...

Don't be afraid of Chinese growth, says the Vatican.

The pontiff is using his massive influence to try to convince Western nations that a "prospering China" doesn't automatically mean a "threatening China."

And in terms of ample investment opportunities – we agree.

Here's more from those who believe China's expansion still has a lot to offer the world...

China Is Killing the U.S. on Trade

Donald Trump is right about one thing: China is killing the U.S. on trade.

In fact, there's a hundred-billion-dollar gap between the States and the Red Dragon when it comes to exports and imports.

Here's a detailed look at the massive imbalance and its origin...

New FB Stock Catalyst in China Could Be Worth $65 Billion

The FB stock price has skyrocketed over the last several years, but revenue growth is still being held back because of Facebook's ban in China.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been in overdrive to lift the ban, however, and he just returned from a very important meeting with China's Propaganda Chief Liu Yunshan.

You see, if Zuckerberg gets his dorm-room creation into China, he just opened up a potential $65 billion growth catalyst for FB shareholders...

China Warns U.S. Over South China Sea Presence

China warns U.S. officials about an agreement that was just made between North America and the Philippines.

When China's Stock Market Crashed, It Sent This Desperate Email to the U.S. Fed

China's stock market crash last July prompted Red Dragon officials to make a surprising move.

They asked the U.S. Federal Reserve for help.

Specifically, China wanted to know how we contained the stock market crash of 1987, which proved remarkably similar to China's crash.

Here's how the U.S. Fed responded...
