Under former President Donald J. Trump, nations who were opposed to the USA, including Communists like China, understood they were not considered friends nor trusted allies.
After Mr. Trump met with and reset their nation’s relationship, North Korea’s Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-un, threats against the U.S. dropped to propaganda pieces inside their sealed-up borders.
Even prior to Joe Biden becoming the 46th President of the United States, the Biden crime syndicate had a history of doing business with the CPP.
Since taking office, President Biden has relaxed some Trump restrictions while continuing his decades-old insistence that China is not our enemy and that a strong China is a good thing.
Emboldened through its relationship with the compromised U.S. President, China (Chinese Communist Party – CCP) on Wednesday aggressively re-acted to President Joe Biden’s inclusion of democratic Taiwan in his forthcoming online democracy summit, with no invitation extended to Beijing while fining Taiwanese companies that have donated to the island’s “secessionist” Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
“China firmly opposes the U.S.’s invitation to the Taiwan authorities to participate in the so-called Democracy Summit,” foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a regular media briefing in Beijing.
“We solemnly urge the U.S. to … stop providing a platform to “Taiwan independence” forces,” Zhao said, adding: “Those who play with fire get burned.”
Some of the companies had been fined for environmental and other violations, amid a crackdown on “diehard secessionists.”
“We will never allow [companies] that support Taiwan secession … or those that bite the hand that feeds them, to make money [here],” China’s Taiwan Affairs Office spokesman Zhu Fenglian told reporters.
Taiwan secessionists, their affiliated enterprises, and their investors must be punished, he said.
What makes China’s comments and threats against Taiwan concerning is the fact that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has never ruled over the island nation.
Nor have they formed part of the People’s Republic of China, and Tsai has repeatedly rejected Beijing’s insistence on “unification” under CCP rule, saying Taiwan’s 23 million people have no wish to give up their democratic way of life or self-rule as the 1911 Republic of China government.
