Attorney Gordon Chang, an internationally-recognized expert on China, warned that China’s Communist Party has launched an aggressive propaganda campaign aimed at crashing the American economy and blaming the United States for the Wuhan coronavirus.
Chang, who’s Chinese-American, is a bestselling author and senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute. He previously lived and worked in mainland China and Hong Kong for 20 years.
Chang says the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is running a global propaganda campaign to sink the U.S. economy and to get the world to blame the United States for causing the coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, China.
Predictably, anti-Trump leftists and their media minions are rabidly parroting CCP talking points on social media and on television because they think it will hurt Trump.
“The Communist Party is very sensitive about its secrecy — that it covered up the virus,” Chang told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs. “The Chinese people have really been calling for fundamental political change. That ignited the Chinese population against the Communist Party.”
He continued: “So what the Party is trying to do is find an enemy. That enemy is the United States. They have come up with these dangerous claims that the U.S. Army spread the coronavirus to Wuhan.”

Gordon Chang added: “The political system in China has identified the U.S. as an enemy. And that’s why it’s important for President Trump to make it clear this virus came from China.”
He pointed out: “I’m a Chinese-American. I don’t see any racism in what President Trump is trying to do. What I see is a president defending the United States of America against a dangerous, hostile, communist regime.”
Lou Dobbs asked: “Do you think this reached a point where it’s endangering the historic trade deal the President put together with Xi Jinping?”
Chang replied: “Yes. Yesterday, China attacked the dollar in a very rhetorical op-ed piece in the Global Times. Today, they are suggesting that the world is going into a depression because of the U.S. So they are now trying to collapse the American economy.”
This week, China expelled American journalists from the New York Times, the Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal from its country. Chang said this is part of the Communist Party’s propaganda campaign.
“What the Party is trying to do is cover up a number of things, including the origin of this virus. So, it doesn’t want more journalists in China,” he explained.
Gordon Chang continued: “There are so many Chinese ‘journalists’ in the United States — many more than Americans in China. We know that the Chinese ‘journalists’ here are actually part of the Ministry of Chinese State Security. They are essentially spies.”
He added: “The U.S. has to do something about this. And so, I’m very glad the Secretary of State has taken some robust measures to protect us with regard to these quote-unquote journalists here.”
By the way, why did this Chinese “journalist” from CBS News never identify the White House official who supposedly referred to the Wuhan coronavirus as “Kung-Flu?”
Many on Twitter suggested that Weijia Jiang is the Asian version of fake-crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett.
This morning a White House official referred to #Coronavirus as the “Kung-Flu” to my face. Makes me wonder what they’re calling it behind my back.

Countless Twitter users urged Weijia Jiang to identify the alleged White House official by name. After all, it’s not like left-wing “journalists” don’t breathlessly leak anti-Trump rumors all the time.
You put this out under your CBS News account while in assignment.
So who was the WH official who said this to you and why are you protecting their anonymity?
