Michael Bloomberg told Firing Line host Margaret Hoover that Chinese president Xi Jinping is “not a dictator” and insisted the Chinese Communist Party listens to its constituents.
“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.”
Translation: I have a lot of investments in China.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg suggested Friday afternoon that China’s politicians are beholden to the public for their survival.
China’s communist party is doing a lot to help the environment, Bloomberg told PBS Firing Line host Margaret Hoover. Chinese officials have to maintain a strong environmental standing if they want to stay in office, the former New York City mayor-turned wealthy environmentalist added.
“The communist party wants to stay in power in China, and they listen to the public,” Bloomberg told Hoover, adding: “Xi Jinping is not a dictator. He has to satisfy his constituents, or he’s not going to survive.”
China is cracking down on coal production as the country tries to transition to natural gas production. Coal is now contraband in some provinces, including Qiaoli, where some residents continue to use it whenever they can, claiming the local authorities granted a reprieve until the Chinese New Year later this month.

@MikeBloomberg shows how dumb he is in this interview, if you did not already know from when he banned large sodas as his big policy change as Mayor of NYC.

As if there was any doubt, Michael Bloomberg once again shows us he’s an idiot. Oh, China does “listen” to the public all right, makes it much easier to identify the “undesirables.”

He’s either hopelessly ignorant of Communist doctrine or completely agrees with it; most likely the latter.

And “people” thought/think he should run for president. He’s either delusional, dishonest or is so authoritarian he wants the US political system to mimic China’s.
