According to reports on WeChat and other sources, a letter has been circulating around China that calls for a meeting of the Chinese Politburo to discuss leadership failures of Chinese Communist dictator Xi Jinping and possible replacement.
The letter, which is anonymous, calls for Premier Li Keqiang, Chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference Wang Yang, and Vice President Wang Qishan to convene a Politburo meeting about Xi’s “issues.”
The failure to contain COVID-19, deteriorating relationship with President Donald Trump and the United States, and insistence in pouring money into “backwater African countries” rather than into China’s needs were some of the issues mentioned in the letter as problems.
“Have China’s international relations … improved or worsened since Xi Jinping came to power? Is making enemies on all sides and deteriorating U.S. relations good or bad for China’s development?” part of the letter read.
