TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – On Jan. 27, Chinese real estate tycoon and political exile, Guo Wengui (郭文貴) uploaded video of former U.S. presidential advisor Steve Bannon speaking on China-US relations, as well as Hong Kong and Taiwan.
During their talk, Bannon is asked by Guo how he thinks the United States would respond if China launched a military attack against Taiwan.
In response, Bannon says that “economic incompetence of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)” may lead Beijing to promote an invasion of Taiwan to the Chinese people.
Mentioning his experience in the U.S. Navy, his visits to Taiwan, and the historical relationship between Taiwan and the U.S., Bannon says there is a “deep love for Taiwanese people” among Americans. [FULL STORY]
