Not-President Hillary: Don’t Blame China for Its Own Actions
On Monday, the twice-failed presidential candidate who just won’t go away Hillary Clinton told the Atlantic Council that the U.S. cannot blame China for acting in its own interests, seeming to imply that it is President Trump’s fault that China is acting aggressively nefariously on the world stage, despite the fact that China has been run by Communists for more than half a century.
The delusional “What Happened?” author also said that a Biden administration would get the U.S.’s China policy on a “steadier” and “more predictable course,” while saying that the Trump administration’s actions against China haven’t been “particularly effective.”
From Just the News:
“For a number of decades, it was certainly in America’s interest and the world’s interest, I would argue, to support China’s economic rise to work to include China in the international order, in all kinds of institutional ways, but I think any relationship has to be constantly reevaluated.
“As we’ve seen with (China leader) Xi Jinping, a lot of the aggressive nature of China’s ambitions, now, are very clear – militarily and strategically, economically, internationally. And so you require a clear and consistent approach to China, which we have not seen under the Trump administration.
“In the meantime, China has extended its road and belt program and increased its influence not only across Asia, but into Africa, into the South Pacific, even into Europe and certainly, Latin America. China is not only building infrastructure nationally, but through a competitive infrastructure bank that it has set up.
“So you see with China, they’re playing the long game. And as I say, you can’t blame a country for acting in its own self interest. We can question ourselves for not being more effective in how we deal with China’s new, more aggressive, ambitious approach.
“I think there’s a real audience within China and around the world for the United States regaining its voice when it comes to human rights. So there’s a real opportunity here that I think that a Biden-Harris administration would quickly seize, to try to get our relationship with China back on a steadier, more predictable course and reassert America’s standing and leadership in Asia and beyond.”
In other words, China is not to blame for its unleashing of the coronavirus upon the world and covering it up afterward, consistent technology theft, frequent spying and its mass murder of tens of millions conducted consistently since Mao’s revolution in 1949.
One can wonder if she would ever apply this standard to any other country, and the answer is probably yes, under the condition that Trump had previously criticize said country. Because blaming every conceivable thing on Trump is more important than anything else to people like her.
