No folks, this is NOT ‘The Onion.’
On Thursday (China time), on the same day as Joe Biden’s much anticipated Democrat Party convention speech, the Chinese Communist newspaper endorsed Joe Biden for President of the United States.
The Global Times says Joe Biden may reactivate the job-killing TPP and the Iran nuclear deals pushed by the Obama administration.
China is rooting for a weak America. Trump is rooting for a strong America.
This was quite an endorsement.
Via The Global Times:
Although most observers, polls and surveys made by US media outlets and institutes, as well as Chinese experts predicted that Joe Biden could defeat Donald Trump to become the next US president in the November presidential election, but if Trump is reelected, it won’t become another Black Swan incident like his victory in 2016. Biden was officially nominated as the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate at the party’s convention Tuesday.
The Democrats’ national convention showed unity as all senior members and several former Democratic presidents endorsed Biden.
The Republicans are much more divided. Some senior Republican figures, including Colin Powell, a former US secretary of state and a top advisor to three Republican presidents, even endorsed Biden.
Many Chinese analysts predict that China will need to deal with Biden in at least the next four years, and they noticed that the proposed Democrat platform on foreign policy showed that if Biden wins, the US will remain tough on China. So Beijing should remain vigilant. But tactically, the US approach would be more predictable, and Biden is much smoother to deal with than Trump — a viewpoint that is shared by many countries.
Although Biden would very likely to use totally different tactics to continue the US-launched great power competition with China, such as restoring negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement. As long as the US returns to multilateralism, the two greatest economies in the world could at least have more reasons to dialogue and cooperate, Chinese analysts said.
And it’s not just a newspaper endorsement that confirms China wants Biden to take out Trump.
As TheDC reported, U.S. intelligence officials on August 7, revealed that the Chinese Government was actively working to defeat Trump…
The Chinese government wants President Donald Trump to lose the 2020 election, the office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) announced Friday.
The revelation came as part of the DNI’s Friday update on threats to the upcoming U.S. election, saying China has been ramping up its efforts ahead of November.
“We assess that China prefers that President Trump – whom Beijing sees as unpredictable – does not win reelection,” William Evanina, Director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center wrote in a Friday statement. “China has been expanding its influence efforts ahead of November 2020 to shape the policy environment in the United States, pressure political figures it views as opposed to China’s interests, and deflect and counter criticism of China.”
- Biden denounced as “xenophobic” Trump’s January travel ban from China after the COVID-19 virus was exported here from Wuhan, China.
- Biden’s son Hunter in 2013 received a sweetheart $1.5 billion investment for his BHR Fund directly after he accompanied his father Joe on Air Force Two to a meeting with Chinese officials in Beijing.
- Biden has repeatedly called Chinese growth “a good thing” for the U.S., and that China “is not a threat” despite massive American job losses, staggering trade deficits, Chinese military aggression in the Far East and Chinese oppression of 1.5 Uyghur Muslims and crushing the democracy movement in Hong Kong.
Trump this week is launching an ad exposing Biden’s horrific Chinese connections to a public that has been shielded from the truth by a biased U.S. news media:
