The Chinese government appears to be celebrating a potential Biden victory, one they may have helped create. In a radio interview on “The Cats Roundtable” on WABC 770am, China expert Gordon Chang said, “I think China is very happy with how things turned out because Beijing worked very hard to get the vice president elected.”
Chang said the Chinese attacked President Trump through a malicious public disinformation campaign. “Twitter took down 174,000 fake Chinese accounts in June alone, which shows you the size of China’s effort. And they were working for Biden even during the Democratic nomination process, because they were favoring him over Bernie Sanders.” Chang said and then reiterated, “once Biden got the nomination, they went to work on President Trump, making life difficult for him.”
The comments from Chang will certainly raise more suspicion of the China and Biden relationship following the revelations before the election from former Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski. The allegations by Bobulinski had tied the Bidens to business dealings with a Chinese energy company that has very close ties to China’s Communist Party.
The Trump administration has been tough on China over the past four years and there has been speculation that President Trump is planning to enact some hardline policies on the country before year’s end.
