BIARRITZ • Remember when President Xi Jinping of China was the "enemy"? That was so last Friday. As of Monday, according to President Donald Trump, Mr Xi was a "great leader" and a "brilliant man".
What about that edict by Mr Trump, who "hereby ordered" American companies to leave China? Three days later, he was positive he would get a trade deal and, if so, then firms should "stay there and do a great job".
