Gordon Chang: China testing Biden with incursions against Taiwan, India: ‘This is a very dangerous time’
By Charles Creitz
Recent confrontational action by China toward regional rivals Taiwan and India are examples of the Communist regime in Beijing challenging the new American president, according to China expert Gordon Chang.
Chang told “Your World” on Wednesday that President Xi Jinping is trying to size up how Joe Biden compares to his recent predecessors.
The author of “The Coming Collapse of China” noted such militaristic exercises did not take place in 2017, when Donald Trump took office as president.
GORDON CHANG: I think what they’re trying to do is find out how tough Biden is. These aerial exercises in Taiwan Saturday and Sunday are interpreted in the region as a challenge to Biden. Many people in the U.S. are saying the same thing.
