There were unconfirmed and widely disputed reports of thousands of Chinese people dancing in the streets of Beijing upon word that President Trump had officially withdrawn the US from the Trans Pacific Partnership.  The move, inevitably ceding ecnomonic and political power to China, was described by some as the greatest gift the US has ever given China.

While official Chinese media denied the account, in an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC news, a Chinese celebrity billionaire known for his vast real estate holdings and TV Show doubled down on the account saying: “It was on television. I saw it.  It was well covered at the time, George. Now, I know they don’t like to talk about it, but it was well covered at the time.

President Trump for his part was outraged tweeting “No Chinese were dancing in the street.  All lies.  How can they say that without evidence.  Shameful.”
