Meng Wanzhou and The Two Michaels

  1. publicly conceded that the Meng Wanzhou situation was purely politically motivated, that the “rule of law” was a load of horse puckey
  2. negotiate with the Chinese to release the two Michaels in exchange for Meng Wanzhou, the sort of thing that used to be done in the Cold War with respect to the exchange of captured spies
  3. exercise his executive power to circumvent the judicial process and the extradition treaty (every national leader has this kind of executive power to be applied at their discretion; otherwise, they couldn’t function to manage national crises)
