Donald Trump has perhaps attacked no country as consistently as he has China.China is a huge market for American goods, and last year the country invested more than $53 billion in the U.S. economy, according to Forbes.Ten years ago, exports made up a staggering 37 percent of China's GDP.As Trump was promising protectionism and threatening literally to wall off America from its southern neighbor, Chinese President Xi Jinping made a trip through Latin America in November, his third in four years. He signed more than 40 deals, Bloomberg reported, and committed tens of billions of dollars of investments in the region, adding to a $250 billion commitment made in 2015 .Now China has offered up its own version of the pact, one that excludes America and favors China's more mercantilist approach.Trump has only made sneering references to globalism and globalization and no senior member of his team currently plans to attend.Looking beyond his tweets, Beijing seems to have concluded that Trump's presidency might well prove to be the best thing that's happened to China in a long time.
