WASHINGTON — China would overtake the United States as the global superpower and force Americans to learn to speak Chinese if Joe Biden wins the election, President Trump claimed on Tuesday.
“China will own the United States if this election is lost by Donald Trump. If I don’t win the election, China will own the United States,” Trump said during an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.
“You’re going to have to learn to speak Chinese, you want to know the truth,” he said, referring to the official language of China which is Mandarin.
The president was asked about a recent intelligence report, which concluded that China would prefer Biden win the November presidential election.
“They’ll own the United State if he wins, and with me, they were having the worst year in 67 years because I tariffed the hell out of them,” Trump said.
“We took in billions and billions of dollars. I gave some of it to the farmers because they were targeted, and I put the rest in the Treasury of the United States.”
The president also said his relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping had frayed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I had a very good relationship with President Xi. I would even say better than good. I would say we had a great relationship. He’s a great gentleman,” he said.
“But my relationship is no longer very good with him because of what they did with the China virus.”
