There has been always this anti-China faction in the US government since the communist took over in China. What they won't dare to mention is China played a significant role against Western colonialism around the world and made the West embrace human rights. The Chinese communists successfully revolting against Western colonialism scared the West that it can happen every where else especially since the West was weaken by WWII and China was actively trying to make that happen. What was one of Nelson Mandela's first foreign trips after being released from prison? To China. Why? Because China was one of the first foreign supporters of Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress while Western countries were amongst the last. They hate China more than the Soviet Union because of it. So the only way the West could stop this revolt was to decolonize but they installed a puppet ruler that always answered to them hence why the West supported so many dictators during the Cold War. They also embrace "human rights" to distract how they supported dictators that did all their dirty work. They embraced human rights so they could control the definition. The West doesn't commit human rights violations. The enemies of the West do so everyone should stay away from them. The same things they say to this very day. Edward Snowden exposed the US is doing everything it accuses China and long before. They want everyone to believe they don't abuse the data they steal but China will. They're nicer criminals that steal other people's data which makes it all right and not a crime. During the Obama Administration, the Pentagon said any country that commits cyber warfare is committing an act of war. What was Stuxnet then? Why don't they just say that laws are only for everyone else and not the West? That's because they would be facing that world revolt again. Because Trump is in office they want to exploit the situation to carry out their anti-China agenda. From reports, Trump is clueless on international affairs. His only understanding comes from whatever is on TV until reality hits him just like with his trade war. China didn't collapse on day one of his trade war like he believed was going to happen. Things are a lot more complicated than what TV tells him. This establishment anti-China faction aren't shooting from the hip. They have a long term agenda to assure US domination so economic trade concerns aren't important to them. Like I've said before, just China existing upends everything they were taught to believe. They recognize that and that's why they have to stop China. But when that may ruin Trump's economy that's when Trump will say something.
