 The US media have uncovered the truth of the US sides groundless demand for China to close its Consulate General in Houston


Why do you ask China to close the Consulate General? Foreign media see through

Several foreign media said it was not clear why the United States chose the Chinese Consulate General in Houston, but for the purpose of this move, foreign media said frankly: for the election.

According to CNN daily 23, the US sides move to ask China to close its Consulate General in Houston has raised public doubts about its political motives.

CNN reported on the 23rd

According to the article, the US governments disastrous response to the new epidemic led to a relatively low support rate of President trump in the poll before the election. White House officials privately said that the tough strategy against China is to save Trumps support rate, but also to shift the responsibility of the White House to deal with the failure of the epidemic situation.

The article holds that the Chinese Consulate General in Houston is a politically driven and very cautious target chosen by the United States, and that the US government has chosen it to create a tough attitude and avoid the risk of major conflicts.

The BBC also believes that trump believes that playing the China card has a political advantage at a time when the US election season is approaching and the US economy is seriously hit by the epidemic. The current situation is a spiral upward, tit for tat struggle, which is promoted by the US government from the perspective of domestic considerations to a certain extent, which will only aggravate the tension between China and the United States.

CBS reported that Trumps re-election prospects were under pressure because of the outbreak, and he repeatedly accused China of the epidemic. Almost every day, the United States takes new actions against Trumps absurd argument that China exploits the United States.
