Washington, DC — In comments released by Beijing, the Chinese foreign minister was critical of the United States and the ‘America First’ policy that President Donald Trump has instituted. The statements were made during a phone call with his Russian counterpart and were reported by the South China Morning Post.
In his statements, the foreign minister said that the US has ‘lost its mind, morals, and credibility.’ He referenced the US was moving back to a Cold War mentality and accused the US of neglecting international law an international norms. He made the comments during a phone call where Russia and China pledged to strengthen their relationship due to the change in the US stance towards China.
Similar comments towards a strengthening of relationships between China and Russia were made last week between the two Presidents. The comments should be something that everyone pays attention to for many reasons.
China accusing the United States of being internally focused and not a great partner on the international stage is first. China was certainly not a great partner to any country when it failed to appropriately handle the coronavirus and allowed the virus to spread across the world freely. They were more concerned with their appearance than to provide any support or protection to anyone else across the world. Yet, they have a problem with America first.
The move by the Chinese to coordinate this effort with the World Health Organization is corrupt. It eliminates any credibility the Chinese have as far as what is acceptable behavior on the international stage. Essentially, they are pointing at the US with accusations while they are the country with the poor actions.
Second, China has consistently focused on its power and control, ignoring international norms and law. They recently moved to enforce a security law that violates the 1997 agreement signed for control of Hong Kong. China continues to violate humanitarian laws and norms, forcing people into prisons and controlling them under communism.
One has to ask, why would China want to coordinate efforts with the Russians? Russia is the only country that is just as corrupt as the Chinese. They acted outside of international law with the invasion and takeover of Crimea. They continue to consolidate power behind Putin as he is now set to remain in power for years.
The United States must remain vigilant and pay attention to this situation. President Trump’s America First message and policy is starting to create problems for China. They need a new trade partner, someone they can trust to give them money and help them continue to remain powerful.
The left would like you to believe that President Trump is a pawn of Russia. It seems highly unlikely that he would go after the power of China, only to allow them to consolidate power with Russia. That would not be a strategic move for the United States at all.
The move to consolidate power between China and Russia has been ongoing for some time. In 2019, Politico wrote about how the two nations together would create a power that would change the geopolitical spectrum. The move described in that article is taking place right before our eyes.
The left has continued to run from a hard line stance against China, even though Joe Biden would like you to believe he is tough on them. He has proven multiple times he is a friend to China and Russia. The consolidation of their power combined with a President Joe Biden would be devastating to the United States remaining as a leading power in the world.
While we continue to support the America First mission, we must remain watchful to our neighbors from the East. They are constructing a pact that will change the world in many ways. A pact that, under a Biden administration, could eliminate America from power altogether.
