China’s CCP is threatening Joe Biden after Taiwan was invited to an online meeting with the Biden Administration.
China on Wednesday hit out at U.S. President Joe Biden’s inclusion of democratic Taiwan in his forthcoming online democracy summit, with no invitation extended to Beijing, while fining Taiwanese companies that have donated to the island’s “secessionist” Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).
“China firmly opposes the U.S.’s invitation to the Taiwan authorities to participate in the so-called Democracy Summit,” foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a regular media briefing in Beijing.
“We solemnly urge the U.S. to … stop providing a platform to “Taiwan independence” forces,” Zhao said, adding: “Those who play with fire get burned.”
Zhao’s comments came after China launched a nationwide probe into the activities of companies under Taiwan’s Far Eastern Group, which is a donor to Taiwan’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), the party of president Tsai Ing-wen.
Some of the companies had been fined for environmental and other violations, amid a crackdown on “diehard secessionists.”
It’s difficult to know what is really going on behind the scenes here because every move to date by the Biden gang has benefited China while being a detriment to the United States. Therefore it is puzzling what China means in its message. Is this a threat at the Biden gang because China has blackmail material due to their prior corrupt deals together or is this a threat at America under Biden because the US is now so weak with Joe in charge? Time will tell.
