Trump logic, self-defined

A nation in which 40-plus percent of voters would choose for president a man who wildly insults anyone who criticizes or crosses him is a nation where emotional intelligence, let alone political judgment, is severely impaired.

Trump would presumably never admit, obvious as it is, that his insults and praise are determined purely by whether the party in question has been nice to him -- that "failed," "crooked," "cheating," "dumb" etc. simply means "criticized or crossed me."

Except that he just did:
That is to say: if the Chinese prove helpful with respect to North Korea, they haven't been manipulating their currency, and if they're not helpful re North Korea, they have been manipulating their currency.

That's the way Trump thinks, if thinking is the right word.
