Donald Trump shares vid of Chinese professor claiming Beijing has 'people at TOP of America's inner circle of power'

DONALD Trump shared a video of a Chinese professor claiming that Beijing has "people at the top of America's inner circle of power."

The clip was initially posted on Chinese social media site Weibo, but has since been removed, according to Fox News.

In the footage, Professor Di Dongsheng suggests that China has influenced US policies for decades thanks to an undercover network of "old friends."

The "friends" were apparently at the highest levels of the US government and financial institutions, described as "people at the top."

He went on to suggest that things changed when Trump came into power but did not go on to provide further information as it would compromise the identities of those involved.

However, he did divulge that the Trump-China trade war caused upset between Washington and Beijing – a partnership that has grown stronger over the decades.

"Trump waged a trade war with us. Why couldn't we handle him? Why is it that between 1992 and 2016 we always resolved issues with US? Did you guys know?

"Now, I'm going to drop a bomb: Because we had people up there inside America's core circle of power, we had our old friends," Dongsheng said.

"In plain and simple language, during the last three to four decades, we used the core circle inside America's real power," he added.

"Wall Street had a very profound influence over America's domestic and foreign affairs since the 1970s. We used to heavily rely on them."

Following Trump's election in 2016, the professor claims that "Wall Street couldn't control Trump" because of a "soft breach of contract between them."

"During the US-China trade war, they tried to help," he claimed. "My friends in US told me that they tried to help, but they couldn't."

However, with President-elect Joe Biden set to take office in January 2021, Dongsheng predicts that the relationship between the two countries will soon be restored.

"Now with Biden winning the election, the traditional elites, political elites, the establishment, they have a very close relationship with the Wall Street," he said.

"You all heard that Trump said Biden's son has securities companies all over the world. But who helped Biden's son build his global companies?

'There are indeed buy-and-sell transactions involved in here, so I think at this particular time, [with Biden winning the election], it is of strategic and tactical value for us to show goodwill to him."

Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson shared the clip on his show on Monday night, leading President Trump to post the footage to Twitter.

Carlson labeled the footage as "as close to a smoking gun as we have ever seen."
