China Scholar Thinks Chinese Will Push Biden Around

China should find that easy.

Gordon Chang, one of this nation’s best experts on China, thinks the Chinese Communists will make fast work of Joe Biden. Which could lead to Biden trying to seem tough. Then things could get sporty.


FNC: “President-elect Joe Biden will be little match for the ‘incredible arrogance’ of the Chinese government, China expert Gordon Chang warned Monday on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’

‘They’re going to push a President Biden around,’ Chang told host Tucker Carlson. ‘They’re going to do things which are dangerous, because we’re going to have to push back. Under President Trump, the Chinese didn’t try this because they were afraid of him. So what I’m concerned about is the state of mind of China … This is dangerous.’ Chang was reacting to video of a Nov. 28 lecture by Renmin University professor Di Dongsheng, in which he bragged that China has been able to ‘fool the United States’ through their ties to political and business leaders.’ ”

“That’s absolutely true, that China does have that relationship into what he [Di] calls the core circle of America’s real power,” said Chang. “They used that during the Obama administration and prior administrations, and they couldn’t do it during the Trump administration that much. We know and I know that they are in anticipation, licking their chops about what’s going to happen from Jan. 20 on.

“What he was making were those admissions which really go to the core of the China-U.S. relationship, and I think that what President Trump can do, whether he has 40 days or four years, is to break some of those connections,’ Chang said. ‘He can do it with the International Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977. He can even maybe use the Trading With the Enemy Act of 1917…But we’ve got to break those connections, because if we don’t do that, we are going into a point where we may not be able to deter China,’ Chang opined, ‘because they are so arrogant, so belligerent that they think they can buy any American politician, including the president of the United States.’ ”

The Chinese Communists, when not compromising Democrat elected officials (see story on this today per Eric Swalwell), may have been using diplomatic stations to coordinate actions with groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

“In addition, there are stories that this (Houston) consulate had links to protest groups in the United States providing financial and logistical support. It is not confirmed,” Chang added. “But what is confirmed is that the Chinese Foreign Ministry and the Communist Party’s global links have engaged in a campaign of malicious disinformation, deliberately fueling racial tensions in the United States. And US Customs seized items this year from China that would be very helpful for protesters…In the affidavit that was unsealed this year, the FBI said Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai and someone from the New York Consulate attempted to illegally recruit a scientist in Connecticut who was involved in the research in molecular biology. So it was obviously conduct that was incompatible with their diplomatic status…China has done this with – almost openly. We must therefore take effective measures.” But that won’t happen. America soon will lay prostrate and China won’t hesitate to take advantage of it to the fullest.
