Russian opposition politician Mark Feygin says that Trump is anti-Chinese, so he will put pressure on China to get favorable decisions, especially economic ones

He said this in an interview with Antin Borkovskyi, host of the Studio West program.

"China is interested, let's say, in continuing its rivalry with the West, especially with Washington, but in no case should this rivalry lead to an armed conflict, because Beijing does not need it at all. China has a huge trade turnover with Europe and America, so it is interested in continuing this cooperation in one form or another. Economically, China is extremely interested in normal, stable relations with the West, while maintaining its claims to world leadership, global leadership," the opposition politician commented.

According to him, China constantly calls itself the main superpower alongside the United States. "Washington is constantly putting China down: no, you are a regional power. Obama did it, and Biden is doing it now, not to mention Trump.

"Trump is fiercely anti-Chinese. Many events are also related to the fact that elections are expected in November. If Trump comes to power, well, then China will be very unlucky. And they understand this. They already remembered the four years from 2016 to 2020, when Trump had a major impact on the situation with his decisions on the trade deal and the withdrawal of production from China. Moreover, let me remind you that this was in the aftermath of the covid epidemic, and Trump caught part of the epidemic itself, despite the fact that in 2021, in January, a new President Biden was inaugurated. He wants to demand some kind of compensation from China and everything else. This is just a pretext. It's not about the money, which can be won in the courts in America and demanded from China. This is a pretext to put pressure on China and get favourable decisions from it, especially economic ones. China is aware of this and is certainly preparing for the moment when, if Trump suddenly comes to power, it will know how to behave in this situation," Feygin said.

  • On June 21, Reuters reported that for the first time in five years, the United States and China resumed Track Two nuclear weapons talks in the conflict over Taiwan. Representatives of Beijing told their American counterparts that they would not resort to nuclear threats.
