GORDON CHANG, Contributor, Daily Beast, Author, “The Coming Collapse of China,” “Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes the World” and “Losing South Korea,” Twitter: @Gordongchang 

Part I:

  • Chairman Xi Jinping is under the impression that China, or the “Middle Kingdom,” is the only sovereign state in the world
  • Gordon Chang argues that Xi knew exactly what he was doing when he allowed for the coronavirus to spread across the world – The Chinese Communist Party understood five weeks in advance that the coronavirus was transmittable person-to-person
  • Xi strong-armed countries into accepting flights/travelers from China right as Wuhan was up under lockdown

Part II: 

  • Evidence that China is heading towards becoming a totalitarian state, again – Social Credit System
  • Elements of Chinese interference in the 2020 election run deep: Global Times, the Chinese foreign ministry, bot social media accounts
  • Unconfirmed reports of Chinese protestors in the US coordinating with the central government in Beijing

Part III: 

  • The Chinese Communist Party used the Coronavirus to further its domination in Hong Kong and continues to suppress any and all forms of dissent within the once “semi-autonomous” region
  • Taiwan is becoming more and more anti-China and has, in recent years, moved very clearly towards the side of the US, Japan and India
  • China is building a port in the Bahamas, only 70 miles from West Palm Beach, Florida 

Part IV:

  • Chang asks why the US does not block Chinese apps, when in fact China blocks US apps? 
  • In order to counter a dubious actor like China, the next US administration must work to cut off all ties to the Chinese Communist regime
