And of course the left s savaging him, but, as The Lid explains, she actually does work for……..
At Trump’s press conference on Monday, Trump asked a reporter if she worked for the Chinese Communist Party. Her answer wasn’t the entire truth. She works for Phoenix TV, which has been identified by U.S. intelligence agencies as a major overseas outlet used to spread propaganda and promote the policies of the communist China. The Hong Kong television station also has close ties to China’s intelligence service and military.
The left, of course, will continue the narrative of how RAAAAACIST Trump is, and how mean, and so on, but he was right to ask
Jeff Dunetz offers some much needed clarity
She said Phoenix TV privately own, and it is—sort of. According to its annual report, about 65% of the network is owned by “private” entities controlled by Bejing:
- Owning 37% is Liu Changle, CEO and the founder of Phoenix TV. He started out as a reporter for the Communist Party of China-controlled Central People’s Broadcasting Station. He had become one of China’s richest men by the 1990s and is well-connected to the Beijing leadership.
- China State-Owned China Mobile owns approximately 20%
- China Wise International Ltd, owned by the PRC government’s China Investment Corporation, has about 8%.
