In a new Truth Social post, President Trump called for common sense when it comes to dealing with China, pointing out that a “great relationship” with the superpower was possible if it was based on “MUTUAL respect.”

“So much talk now about the threat of China,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “Question: Who was the first person, way back in 2015, and before, that brought China to the attention of ALL, with many refusing to accept what was being so strongly and brilliantly stated? Why, surprise, it was Donald J. Trump, of course! BUT, with all of that being said, we can have a great relationship with China, but it has to be one of MUTUAL respect. Right now they have ZERO respect for the USA, two years ago it was at record levels!”

President Trump’s comments come shortly after the now-infamous Chinese spy balloon was allowed to drift across the U.S. last week, carving an aerial trail from Alaska to the East Coast, where it was shot down by the U.S. military right off the coast of South Carolina.

“The Chinese Balloon situation is a disgrace, just like the Afghanistan horror show, and everything else surrounding the grossly incompetent Biden Administration,” Trump wrote over the weekend.

The president also recently released a video addressing the internal threat of Chinese espionage on U.S. soil, decrying their influence in every area of American life. “It’s rarely even mentioned that China has many thousands of spies working in the United States in business, finance, academia, technology, media, and likely, even government, sadly,” he said.

He promised to act swiftly to stop the threat of Chinese espionage in America if he is elected president again in 2024, vowing to halt their theft of American secrets. “Instead of hunting down Republicans, a reformed FBI and Justice Department will be hunting down Chinese spies,” Trump said.
