Trump just added China to drive his 2020 overseas dirt-digging machine and Wisconsin's senior US Senator on board.
Ron Johnson OK with President Trump asking China to investigate 2020 political rival
Throw in the 2016 Russian assistance, and Trump becomes the recipient of a third nation's targeted foreign aid.

Oh, wait, make it six. I forgot about Australia, Italy and the UK.

And maybe this is what happens when the White House does you a favor and makes your key demanded amendment part of its major tax 'reform' bill:
For the second time this year, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin gave a last-minute endorsement of a key piece of Republican legislation, this time allowing the GOP's tax bill to squeak past a major hurdle by the slimmest of margins. 
Johnson, who said as recently as Monday that he would not vote for the tax bill if it wasn't changed, said Tuesday, November 28th that he got a personal guarantee from President Donald Trump that Republicans would address his concerns. He cast the deciding vote in the Senate Budget committee, and the measure passed, 12-11.
His amendment had been called self-serving:

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy! Literally, because a nicer guy would have been looking out for folks in bad need of help in the first place instead of just trying to vacuum up everything he could for his over-stuffed, over-privileged, over-inflated self. Public service is supposed to be about serving the public, not finding new ways to line your own pockets at other taxpayers' expense. Assuming RoJo even pays taxes at this point; it's possible he's taken a page from Leona Helmsley's book...
