Yeah, CNN is probably run with dirty political money, but they aren’t literally OWNED by the government.
That’s the deal with China’s state-run Global Times. The government literally controls the country’s daily newspaper. The thoughts and opinions expressed in that paper are the thoughts and opinions of the Chinese government.
So when the Global Times is laughing at Kamala Harris, that means the Chinese government is laughing at Kamala Harris. Which might be exactly what she deserves, but isn’t exactly what we as proud Americans want.
Here’s the segment from the paper:
The US escape-style withdrawal from Afghanistan has severely impacted Washington’s international reputation. Her arrival in Southeast Asia provides a chance for local people to ask her face-to-face: Is the US still reliable? No matter where she goes, she will be viewed with suspicion. Bracing herself to shamelessly defend the argument that the US is still trustworthy will be her top priority during the trip.
Yet this is a mission impossible for Harris. Her visit to Vietnam will reinforce people’s memories of the hurry-scurry US withdrawal from Saigon in 1975 and the association that it is not the first time that the US military abandoned its allies and that the US is a habitual offender in this regard. Both Singapore and Vietnam are members of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which was signed up to by the previous US Democratic administration. But the agreement was later abandoned by Washington.
“NO MATTER WHERE SHE GOES, SHE WILL BE VIEWED WITH SUSPICION.”
Same, Chinese Government. Same.
