A strong domestic economy and a firm political base allows Trump, on behalf of long term American interests, to take necessary actions against China and Iran. The Eurowimps have no choice but to follow.
Maximum Pressure! Yay Trump!!!

My bet is the company plans on doing it again. Unless Trump makes clear he'll go medieval on their heinies.
