Pete Buttigieg has an article in the Washington Post this morning:
Washington Post: Pete Buttigieg: China wants four more years of Trump
Mayor Pete may be running for something by writing this, but regardless it is an informative article on how Trump is seemingly obsessed with China as possibly being the key to his re-election. After first praising President Xi Jinping repeatedly in January and February, Trump has now reverted to pinning the coronavirus blame on China. Quoting Buttigieg:
"President Trump is resorting to a desperate reelection strategy: To deflect blame for his own failure to address the coronavirus crisis, and in the hope that the public will forget his initial instinct — complete with praise for the “transparency” of China’s pandemic response — he’s doing everything he can to miscast former vice president Joe Biden as Beijing’s “dream candidate.”
"On Wednesday, Trump told the Associated Press that “China will do anything they can to have me lose this race.”
In other words, he is playing the media again making people believe that China is his "enemy" doing what they can to see that he is not re-elected. However, as Buttigieg claims, it is just the opposite. China would like nothing better to see Trump elected for four more years, because during his presidency the USA has lost prestige and influence throughout the world while China has stepped into the leadership vacuum.
Buttigieg cites numerous examples of Trump's failed leadership role in the world, which all have benefited China. You can read the article. Buttigieg is an informed writer, and has revealed what Trump's true motives are in casting blame.
I wonder where Buttigieg will end up in the Biden presidency.
