Totally competent US Presidential candidate and
pro-China investor anti-China trade warrior Mitt Romney, had shares in Chinese internet giant and “piracy haven“, Youku, as recently as June 15th, before the shares became politically embarrassing for the anti-China candidate.
Romney, All-Mighty Guardian of American Copyright, said at a rally in Virginia last week:
“Did you know they [China] even have an Apple store? It’s a fake Apple store; they sell counterfeit Apple products. This is wrong. We’re gonna crack down on China when they manipulate their currency, when they steal our goods, when they don’t protect our intellectual property. We’re gonna make sure that China understands we mean business. Trade is gonna work for us, not just for them.”
