Chinese Netizens’ Hilarious Reactions to ‘Comrade’ Trump’s 2024 Election Run

On November 16, former U.S. President Donald Trump announced that he would be running for president again in 2024. Since then, the Chinese internet has exploded with jokes laced with schadenfreude.

Trump’s Chinese nickname, chuan jianguo tongzhi, has also made a comeback.  The name refers to an internet joke about Trump being an undercover pro-Chinese agent.  Also, jianguo means ‘building the country,’ and many believe that Trump has inadvertently helped increase Chinese nationalism.

“They can spit at each other from wheelchairs.”

“In two years, the 81-year-old and 78-year-old candidates can hit each other with crutches.”
