Question: Why do people hate Donald Trump?
One answer might be “Chy-na”
China has long “invested” in American universities, think tanks, industries, politicians and government officials. This has let to numerous “embarrassing” revelations. Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) employed a Chinese spy chauffeur for 20 years. Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) had a close relationship with Chinese national spy who worked for his office as a donations “bundler”, among other things.
Perhaps China’s most significant “get” has been Hunter Biden. In 2013 he accompanied his father, then vice-president Joe Biden to Beijing on Air Force Two and came back with a billion dollar deal related to cobalt mining (New York Times, December 7, 2021). Gordon Chang, author of “The Coming Collapse of China” and “The Great U.S.-China Tech has often spoken and written about China’s policy of engaging with relatives of American elected officials in order to influence and compromise them. “We will most probably never know if the Chinese government has threatened to or is currently blackmailing President Joe Biden, with information they may have on his son Hunter,..” (realclearpolitics.com November 23, 2022)
In the midst of all this came Trump.
He was independent, rich and confident (okay, blunt, aggressive, abrasive).
In March, 2011, I attended a seminar at Mar-a-Largo, his Palm Beach estate at which a number of experts addressed the global challenges facing the United States.
Trump walked in mid-way through the event.
He was wearing golf clothes, his face was flushed and the famous blonde ‘do was tousled.
He greeted the organizer, grabbed a hand-held microphone and began to speak. His topics? China, our economy, the border.
This was a Donald Trump with whom I was unfamiliar.
I knew “You’re fired!”
I was aware that he had transformed the New York City skyline, built luxury golf courses, had co-authored a best-selling book, “The Art of the Deal”, owned several beauty competitions, etc. These were things most people knew about Donald Trump but I had never realized that he also possessed acute economic and political insight.
I turned to my friend and said “He should run for president.”
“I know,” she said. “I tell him all the time.”
Four years later he did run for president.
Big Tech, entertainment, mainstream news and corporate America were ready. They mocked and demonized him on a daily basis. They downplayed his rationality, pragmatism, patriotism, magnified his shortcomings and buried his opposition’s suspect behavior. After he was elected, they thwarted his programs and then tried to remove him. He faced two impeachments and a Special Counsel investigation. Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House ripped up his State of the Union speech. When he claimed the COVID virus originated in a Chinese lab and called it the “Chy-na virus”, he was called racist and xenophobic. (“Calling COVID “China Flu” Can Indeed Make It Deadly” March 19, 2021, https://billmoyers.com/story/calling-covid-china-flu-can-indeed-make-it-deadly/ ) In a December 3, 2022 article, The Sun reported that Dr. Andrew Huff, an epidemiologist with personal knowledge of the matter said that “China’s gain-of-function experiments – carried out with shoddy biosecurity – led to a lab leak at the US-funded Wuhan Institute of Virology.” (https://www.the-sun.com/news/6830557/wuhan-lab-warning-covid-lab-leak/)
Now, once again, drummed up by the mainstream news and competing politicians, people are expressing outrage at Trump, this time for his Thanksgiving guests, invited and uninvited.
It is all dust in the eyes of observers, a shell game as China welds shut the doors to COVID suspected apartment buildings and remotely erases its citizens.
The American people have been catfished (and that doesn’t even include Twitter deleting Biden’s tweets at his campaign’s requests, its suspension of the New York Post for reporting Hunter Biden abandoned laptop and its ban of Trump. Did China have a hand in those acts as well? Stay tuned).
