A Chinese propaganda outlet has deemed former President Donald Trump's 2024 run for president "a tragedy."
"China’s Global Times state propaganda newspaper declared former American President Donald Trump’s announcement of a third presidential bid this week "a tragedy of American democracy," predicting that Trump’s return to politics would inspire 'violence,'" reported Breitbart.
"Trump served as president from 2016 to 2020 and made confronting malign Chinese Communist Party influence the core of his administration’s policies," according to Breitbart.
"Among the many actions Trump took to reduce Chinese communist influence on the world stage and within America were the imposition of tariffs on Chinese products, blocking national security threats such as telecommunications company Huawei from doing business in America, and formally recognizing the Communist Party’s genocide of Muslim ethnic groups, particularly the Uyghur people, in East Turkistan," reported Breitbart.
"In his speech on Tuesday announcing he would run against incumbent leftist President Joe Biden – deeply implicated in business deals with individuals tied to the Chinese Communist Party – Trump emphasized that he would prioritize leveling the economic and political playing field with China," reported Breitbart.
Trump promised an "all-out campaign to eliminate America’s dependence on China" if he returns to the Oval Office.
The Global Times article titled, "Trump’s launch of 2024 bid may exacerbate 'US political fragmentation,' a 'tragedy' of American democracy," acknowledged that the Chinese Foreign Ministry did not comment on Trump’s announcement as it is a matter of "internal affairs."
"The Foreign Ministry routinely condemns other countries for allegedly interfering in China’s 'internal affairs' by, among other things, objecting to China’s genocide of the Uyghur people and other human rights atrocities, and in turn claims to not meddle in foreign elections," reported Breitbart.
