President Trump quipped during a Tuesday interview with Hugh Hewitt that if Joe Biden wins the 2020 election, “China will own the United States.” “You’re going to have to learn to speak Chinese if you want to know the truth,” Trump said. “And you’ll have to learn it fast. They will own the United States.”
HH: Ambassador O’Brien said China wants Vice President Biden to win. Why do you think that is? DJT: Because they’ll own the United States if he wins, and with me, they were having the worst year in 67 years because I tariffed the hell out of them. 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. We’ve taken in tens of billions of dollars from China, and it was having a huge impact on China, negative impact on China. HH: You’re still the best interview… DJT: And China will own, just like when his son walked out with $1.5 billion dollars from China to manage, where he’ll make millions of dollars a year. Look, 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. You’re going to have to learn to speak Chinese, if you want to know the truth. HH: Well, will Hunter Biden come up at the debates, Mr. President? DJT: And you’ll have to learn it fast. They will own the United States. And I’ll tell you another thing that’ll happen. The market’s up 350 points today. It was up 350 points yesterday. It’s ready to break new records. NASDAQ has already broken a record. We’re doing very well in everything including Corona, as you call it. But let me just tell you, we’re getting to an end. We’re getting to, and the vaccines are ready to rock. We’re going to be very close to a vaccine. We’re ready to distribute, and we’re there for the therapeutics, which to me is even more important, frankly. It makes you better. It’s more important than the vaccine.
