Former president Donald Trump appears to be predicting that China will take aggressive action against Taiwan at the close of the 2022 Winter Olympics because he is no longer in the White House.
Mr Trump made the cryptic comments during an interview on GB News with host Nigel Farage.
Asked about America’s place in the world under President Joe Biden, Mr Trump claimed that the US is at “the lowest point it’s ever been at” because he is no longer president.
“I don’t think it’s ever been in a position like this — we’re not respected anymore,” Mr Trump said.
The twice-impeached ex-president then began lying about a supposed lack of aggressive action on the part of Beijing during his presidency.
