Margret asked him how to get China, India, and other countries to be good partners in the war on climate change. His response was baffling.
“The communist party wants to stay in power in China, and they listen to the public. when the public says I can’t breathe the air…Xi Jinping is not a dictator. He has to satisfy his constituents, or he’s not going to survive.”Michael Bloomberg – PBS Firing Line – 9/27/19
As the BBC reported last year, the communist party amended the constitution and removed term limits from the role of President. This has escalated Xi Jinping to the same status as Mao Zedong; giving him the power to rule for life.
WTF? I mean this is the most insane thing I’ve recently heard from a “business leader”. Great interviewer for actually challenging his BS!— Wasteland Capital (@ecommerceshares) September 29, 2019
You've got to love how @MargaretHoover is looking in disbelief with eyes wide open when Bloodberg is spilling the BS. This is interview is very telling about the symbiosis between the big Western money and the Chinese Communist Party. Bloodberg is going bankrupt if CCP goes down.— Yuri Stoyanov 🇨🇦 (@YuriStoyanov) September 28, 2019
Bloomberg is still hyping Chinese investment opportunities daily. His network is one of Xi's top Western propaganda outlets.— Cash Money (@SweetNutrients) September 29, 2019
WTF. Winnie the Pooh is not a dictator?— Bala பாலா 🇺🇸🇮🇳 (@Bala8105) September 29, 2019
Chinese dissidents often refer to Xi Jinping as Winnie the Pooh, because he resembles the stout goofy character. The Chinese government even went so far as to ban Winnie the Pooh from Chinese social media for making the comparison.
Holy crap, Bloomberg! Talk about being out of touch! The Chinese leader listens to his people???— Marsha Hart (@MadAsHell_) September 28, 2019

China 30% emissions from coal fired plants
Then I heard Bloomberg say;
"Yes, China wants to move coal fired plants away from cities". I have news for ya. You can move as far away from cities as you want. That does not reduce emissions from fossil fuel use.

Xi amended their sham of a constitution to make himself president for life, and has the sole power to appoint his successor. Pretty sure he’s not worried about his “constitutions.”— Tiffany (@Tiffany40328655) September 28, 2019
Here is China responding to its constituents. pic.twitter.com/sJ1OPNs9VE— Kidzed (@Seducedbylogic) September 28, 2019
This is galactic level willful ignorance right here.
Xi, who nominated himself ruler for life, is somehow held accountable by his constituents? Really? How exactly does that work? You think they are going to overthrow the government, with rocks and sticks?
Look what’s going on in Hong Kong right now? If that’s listening to constituents I’d hate to see what dissension looks like.
