Dept. of Not Very Surprising: China Offers First "Meh" to Trump Tweets

That didn't take long. China's learning how to fight a Twitter war with Trump: Don't play.

Jacked pic from Daily Kos. Couldn't help it...

And, yes, it was Daily Kos that gave us this heads up:
China’s response? STFU manchild. We won’t respond to tweets. We will wait for the grown ups to speak. We will wait to see the policy that the grown-ups and the handlers put together.
During a press briefing on Tuesday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang responded to Trump’s tweets by saying that China’s attempts to solve North Korea’s nuclear weapons issue “are clear for all to see.” He cited as examples China’s calling of a six-nation convention to convince North Korea to give up its nuclear program and support for United Nations sanctions against the rogue state. When it came to the question of whether Trump should use his Twitter account to make important foreign policy statements, Geng merely commented that, “We don’t pay attention to the features of foreign leaders’ behavior. We focus more on their policies.”
China delivers its meh model. Thanks, Chinois!
