When outspoken business mogul Donald Trump suggested, again, that he was to going to run for US president, most people assumed the talk held about as much weight as his precariously coiffed fringe. But oh, they were wrong.
The 69-year-old billionaire announced that he’d be standing for the country’s highest office yesterday during a 45-minute-long speech that was, in true Trump form, long-winded, vainglorious and offensive to Mexicans.
But when the Trump wasn’t directing his wrath at the US’s neighbor south of the border (where he will “build a great, great wall” and “have Mexico pay for that wall”), he took time to share his musings on China.
The tycoon and apparent Chinese whisperer has not been shy in the past about expressing his grievances with the world’s most populous country, which may have led some of you to believe that he does not like China. This could not be further from the truth, Trump has attempted to explain with the use of some baffling sports analogies.
Watch the China portion of his presidential announcement here:
Trump has very clear feelings on China.
