Right off the bat, China got a name check from Trump with trade deficits, and came back again with a much-anticipated cameo in climate change.
As the debate came to a close, many Chinese netizens went online to voice their opinions and thoughts. Here are a few of the best (worst) ones:
(As a President, needing to appease the public in these ways, constantly talking. It’s much better to be a Chairman of a communist state.)
(@JJ_nana: Hehe. Appeasing the public is just for the election period. Afterwards, they still need to listen to interest groups.)
(This is the first time Hillary and Trump have debated for over a year. In essence, it’s just an oratory competition. What they say now does not represent what they will do in the future. It’s all for the voters, no other point to it. Maybe I’m wrong, but this is just how I feel.)
(A group of eunuchs hotly discussing other people’s sexual positions)
(For those of you who do not understand, let me translate [Hillary: Go die! Trump: Up yours!])
(The one in the comments who pondered when China live stream elections, please go away. Country and governments are not the same, you cannot compare)
(Who asked when would China live stream elections…the Two Sessions have part which are live, are you blind and cannot see?)
(Hope Hillary wins because Trump will make America stronger)
(Let Trump win, it will make America a bit weaker)
It turns out America and China aren’t that different after all; both at the mercy of trolls.
