Chinese Propaganda Goes Wild Over Trump’s Arrest

On the state-run social media platform Weibo, which is censored by the Chinese Communist Party, users were given broad freedom to remark on the indictment of ex-President Donald Trump on Tuesday.

As a consequence, many users praised the demise of the United States and predicted a civil war.

Chinese Propaganda

On Tuesday, Trump was detained and charged with 34 counts of falsifying company records in Manhattan. Alvin Bragg, the district attorney for Manhattan, claims that Stormy Daniels, an adult film actor, was the subject of the accusations.

In comments at the end of Tuesday, Bragg asserted that initiatives to conceal offenses connected to the 2016 campaign were the cause of the purported lies.

Trump called the allegations on Tuesday massive electoral meddling to an extent that has never occurred previously in America’s society. Trump is widely considered to be the favorite for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.

He argued that this fictitious case was solely filed to sway the impending 2024 election and it ought to be abandoned right away.

As of Wednesday morning, the announcement of Trump’s detention was prominently displayed on the homepage of Weibo, the most well-known Chinese regime-approved social media platform in the nation, along with countless user comments.

Considering that the Chinese authorities rigorously control any material they deem to be at odds with Communist Party doctrine (or the desires of autocrat Xi Jinping), outsiders can assume Beijing’s position is supported by the thousands of responses to Trump’s detention that are still accessible to the general public.

Additionally, a lot of the comments mirrored propaganda from the Global Times and Xinhua News Agency, two of the most influential government-owned propagandist websites in China.

Chinese Predict Civil War

According to other comments, which the BBC translated, Trump’s detention would signal the start of an American “civil war.” Others who used the site called the accusations “political persecution.”
