We’ve all known for a while now that Donald Trump is not fit to be the leader of our country. He’s done unbelievable things and he hasn’t even taken oath to office yet.
Trump’s relationship with China is very much in question. He has failed his first test in dealing with China after he made a minor diplomatic standoff bigger than it should have by tweeting a misspelled tweet and backpedaling like a coward after an oceanic drone was found in Chinese waters last week. He then took credit for ending the standoff, and now he’s saying he does not want the drone back.
The Chinese are now calling Trump an amateur who does not know how to run a country, they said that if his behavior continues they may consider punishment to teach Trump “some lessons.”
The comments were printed in the “Global Times”, a Chinese state-run publication which publishes the official stances of the government. The editorial stated, “Trump is not behaving as a president who will become master of the White House in a month. He bears no sense of how to lead a superpower.”
Trump still doesn’t seem to get a grasp of things, and the newspaper issue an ominous warning for the future if Trump continues with his pugnacious behavior:
“If he treats China after assuming office in the same way as in his tweets, China will not exercise restraint. The Chinese government should be fully prepared for a hardline Trump.”
As simple math shows, the Chinese government have a larger army, with 2.3 million, almost twice as much compared to the 1.4 million in the United States. This means that the Chinese government have the capability to attack if they chose to.
And to make things worst, Trump has shown before that he is willing to use the most horrific weapons humanity has ever produced. “I’m not going to take cards off the table. We have nuclear capability.”
Trump’s thin skin and inability to take criticism well might lead the United States to the brink of war. The editor of the Global Times, Hu Xijin, said in an online video:
“China should teach him some lessons so he might learn to respect China after he is sworn in.”
Xijin’s comment should not be taken lightly. The Global Times only publishes with the consent and permission of the Chinese government, and he is playing as their pawn to warn Trump of what could happen.
Will Trump listen, or will he brush it off? Thinking that the Chinese aren’t being serious. For the sake of our future and to stop a potential war from happening, we really hope he listens.
