After U.S. President Donald Trump's recent visit to China, it can only be a matter of time before right-wing media outlets like Breitbart News and Fox News suggest that he should take a page from President Xi Jinping's playbook, despite the overwhelmingly Leninist nature of its contents. At last month's 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Xi was effectively anointed his country's supreme leader. By enshrining so-called Xi Jinping Thought in the CPC charter, Party members established Xi alongside the People's Republic's two historical giants, Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping – the only other Chinese leaders with officially recognized eponymous ideologies.Trump can only envy Xi.First, be nice to countries where there is, or could be, a Trump Tower or other family franchise.Donald Trump Thought takes aim at two of Obama's signature achievements: the 2010 Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare") and the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. But repealing Obamacare has proved much harder than Trump expected. Finally, believe whom you want to believe – even if that means trusting Russian President Vladimir Putin, the ex-KGB man, over America's own security and intelligence agencies.Like Trump, he knows who his friends are.
