ACT ONE

Scene 1: Zoom meeting between Trump and Pomp (Oval Office) and Xi and Le (Zhong Office)

(The respective offices of the presidents, each with flag backgrounds; soft-porn photos, not quite adding up to kompromat, behind Trump, a bookshelf, where Bolton's book can be seen, behind Xi.

We hear troops marching, to the respective beats of their nations. Trump plays with toy soldiers, arranging them around a toy White House. "Pomp" Pei wears a Trump baseball cap. Xi is holding a book by Diogenes the Cynic.)
