President Trump is warning of a Chinese takeover if he loses the election, reports CNN.
He is trying to paint Joe Biden as weak on China.
“China will own the United States if this election is lost by Donald Trump,” he said during an interview with conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt. “If I don’t win the election, China will own the United States. You’re going to have to learn to speak Chinese, you want to know the truth.”
The Huff Post reports National security adviser Robert O’Brien is claiming China is trying to hack into the election to help Joe Biden.
An ad from the Trump campaign also plays on the anti-Chinese sentiment.
“The coronavirus infected millions. Crushed the world economy. One nation deserves the blame: China. They lied about it. Covered it up. Joe Biden coddles China,” the ad states.
“As the most devastating public health crisis in 100 years rapidly spread, he (Trump) echoed Chinese Communist Party propaganda to downplay the threat and justify inaction ― disregarding warnings from the intelligence community and Joe Biden not to take their word.” the Biden campaign said in a statement published in the Huff Post. ” As a consequence of Donald Trump’s failures, by every metric, China’s position is stronger and ours is diminished.”
