For the duration of Donald Trump’s campaign trail right after Hillary Clinton, China has been the go-to “punching bag.” Earlier this month, the presumptive Republican nominee went as far as describing China’s trade relationship with the U.S. as “rape” and has repeatedly said China is stealing U.S. jobs. Curiously, despite Trump’s relentless criticism of China, it is here that the republican candidate is building a small but rapidly growing fan base who see beyond the bluster (while loathing what Hillary Clinton stands for). Fans such as Gu Yu, “a young technology entrepreneur, likes his blunt, no-punches-held approach.”
“I think Donald Trump has the guts to say things that normal people in the rest of society fear to say,” said Gu. He says he is 100% supportive of Trump, and even though he can’t cast a ballot, he says the Americans that can should trust Trump. In a moment of surprising lucidity, Gu said that “I think political correctness covers up problems instead of solving them.” He is absolutely correct.
