Don’t we have an obligation to each other to at least not support (if only by denying trade) this kind of regime?

Welcome to the BDS movement Joe.

Ooops. Ya got me. That Monty Python skit was people bitching about Rome, not China, wasn't it.

FTR what was the upside in supporting a murderous communist regime

"Apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?"

It wasn’t a random twitch, it was strategic and economic genius

Trump can't fail, he can only be failed.

As an aside, I find it interesting that all three sides in this discussion have adopted, apparently without any reflection, Donald Trump's phrasing of the issue. From his perch atop the bully-pulpit, he declares that The Squad is the face of the Democratic party, and everyone falls in line.

It's amazing to watch.

But honestly how long can the GOP run on a platform of supporting everything Trump wants and denying everything to the Dems?

Four More Years!

The GOP has been running on a "whatever we want and nothing for the Dems" platform for 10 years now and it/they seem to be doing alright. THey're locked in. If Trump loses what are the odds that McConnell says something like the primary goal of the GOP-controlled Senate will be to make Joe Biden a one term president? Obstruct, obstruct, obstruct.
