Despite his constant threats to label China a currency manipulator last summer and endless complaints about the U.S. trade deficit with the manufacturing giant, President Trump is apparently a legend in China. As Reuters notes this morning, Trump is expected to receive a hero’s welcome tomorrow when he arrives in Beijing from adoring Chinese fans who admire that “he loves things splendid and magnificent” and that he “loves to show off.”

On platforms such as the Twitter-like Sina Weibo, Trump’s Chinese supporters, who admire his business success and a free-wheeling style unconstrained by political correctness, are far more prominent than detractors.

While no comprehensive survey has been done to assess the size and intensity of Trump’s popularity in China, several pundits suggest he has broad and vocal support.

“Chinese people are impressed that he is extremely rich, he loves things splendid and magnificent, and he loves to show off. Not every billionaire is like that.”

But the Chinese apparently love Trump for more than just his open willingness to flaunt his wealth, they, like many Americans who threw their support behind the unconventional candidate last year, also have an affinity for his lack of political correctness which they consider “elitist and unrealistic.”

Trump’s popularity in China largely comes from his disdain for political correctness and defiance of traditional liberal western views, which many Chinese consider elitist and unrealistic, Chen said.

“In China, realists hold a deep-rooted belief that the rule of the jungle means the strong prey on the weak,” Chen said. “For them, the world is not split into right and wrong, good or evil, it is only success or failure, the powerful and the weak.”

“Rather than being a president, Trump is more like a comedian!” one Weibo user wrote.
