i hate ccp, if they invade Taiwan I'd be the first to volunteer to return to Taiwan to fight the CCP.

that said. this is a sick burn from china as they're technically correct. as it only took 6 days for the former president to recognize the new ruling party.

not to mention they don't exactly have smooth transition of power. It's typically bloodshed; we just don't hear about them.

If George Takei had tweeted it, we'd call it a DUzy.

I'm sure the U.S.-propped gov't gave the Taliban the same level of cooperation that the Trump administration gave to Biden's.

Except that the Irani president who fled with a toothbrush and a ton of cash will not seek to reclaim his office. Unlike our Former Guy.

China's economy is symbiotically linked to the US.
What good does this trolling do?
Given it's state run media, somebody high up had to approve this approach.
Someone, I think, that might have some explaining to do.

Funny the turn that international diplomacy has taken. I don't know if it is twitter or Trump, or maybe the combination.
