Throughout his presidency Trump has tried to raise alarm bells on how much of an enemy China has become, from the Wuhan Covid virus to unfair trade and the stealing of technology. So why are the Democrats, mainstream media, and corporate America so invested in defending China at every turn? Let’s look at some history.
As a communist country, China was for decades very much a closed society. Remember in history class how much of a big deal it was when Nixon went to China? Large corporations like Coca Cola, GM, McDonalds, and Disney were looking for growth. Farmers were looking for ways to sell their excess crops. Politicians wanted growth of jobs and GDP. They all saw an untapped nation of a billion people. The Chinese Communist government took advantage of their superior bargaining position to put in tariffs and all kind of China-favorable conditions. They were without a doubt unfair to America, but the pros of the new trade market outweighed the cons. As time went by, modern corporations like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, AT&T, Apple and others wanted to expand business and take advantage of cheap Chinese labor, so they went along with Chinese conditions, including censorship and helping them “social credit score” their population.
Fast forward to Trump’s presidency. China has a population of 1.4 billion people and the 2nd largest GDP in the world, yet they still maintain all their trade & other advantages. Trump fought back wherever he could using, among other things, retaliatory tariffs. Almost everyone, including Trump, wants free trade. However, for example, when one nation charges 25% tariff on incoming cars while the other charges nothing, that’s not free trade. The logical thing to do is retaliate with the exact 25% tariff. In a sane world, both nations would realize the tariffs aren’t accomplishing anything and remove them, leading to actual free trade.
But every time Trump tried to even the score, the media and big corporations have opposed him. Why? Corporations are terrified China will kick them out entirely. News outlets are owned by corporations like Disney and AT&T. The Big Tech companies such as Apple and Microsoft have massive operations in China. This defending of China has expanded from trade to virtually everything affecting them, including the Wuhan-originated Covid virus.
China naturally has wanted Trump gone, so they’ve put everything into pressuring and infiltrating the American media and Big Tech companies. You’ve seen the results the past few years – massive bias, one-sided coverage, and censorship. I would not be surprised if China intentionally launched Covid in the U.S. It wouldn’t be that tough when you think about it. All you’d have to do is infect say, 100 hired Chinese visitors to go to sales conferences, airports, or other travel locations where people can contract the virus and take it back to their home cities. Maybe that’s why outbreaks keep popping up, despite lockdowns, mask mandates, and other controls. Democrats have stayed silent on China because Covid, censorship, and media bias have all benefited them tremendously.
There is no bigger winner of the Biden election than China. Expect there to be ZERO accountability for their actions, and business will go back to exactly what it was before Trump was elected.
