The liberal media of the US has projected Joe Biden as the 46th President of the country. While Donald Trump is not expected to go down without fighting, the majority of the nations around the world have resigned themselves to the fact that Democrats are indeed coming to the White House. While the US prepares for a new pro-China president, the repercussions of his election to the office have already started to come out. Four unsettling developments within a few days after the announcement of election results prove that China has started making its movements to fulfil Xi Jinping’s neo-colonial dreams.
Brazil embracing Huawei again
While Donald Trump on his own had shut down Huawei and its business on US soil and in several European countries, his work was still by and large uncompleted. However, no country outrightly welcomed Huawei in its country fearing the wrath of the US and Donald Trump. But as soon as the news of Trump’s departure hit Brazil, the Chinese lobby got into action in the South American country. According to news reports, Brazil’s top four telecom companies have decided not to meet with a visiting senior U.S. official who has advocated excluding China’s Huawei Technologies from the Brazilian 5G equipment market.
“This invitation is not compatible with free-market choices that we are used to. We should be able to freely make our best financial decisions,” the source said.
The sudden 180 in the decision is in stark contrast with the warmth Jair Bolsonaro and Donald Trump had in their relations and the mutual decisions that they undertook. In June, earlier this year, news reports had come out suggesting that Donald Trump had proposed to fund the 5G infrastructure under the condition that Brazil dumped Huawei. But the change in regime meant that Brazil lost its confidence in the US. Brazil has gauged that with Biden in power, it would be difficult to push for a network, other than Huawei and consequently has gone back to the espionage network.
Taiwan not invited to WHO meeting
According to media reports, the country of Taiwan has claimed that it is yet to receive an invite to a key World Health Organization (WHO) meeting that began on Monday. The meeting is supposed to focus on the COVID-19 pandemic which has infected more than 50 million people across the planet.
Taiwan has been one of the few countries that have managed to effectively mitigate the threat of the virus and kept the infection and death count in check. Only 7 deaths have been reported in the country since the pandemic started. And therefore not inviting Taiwan seems to be a conspiracy of WHO and China.
Reported extensively by TFI, WHO and China colluded together to hide the severity of the Coronavirus which allowed the virus to metamorphose into a global pandemic. Taiwan’s foreign ministry has also blamed “obstruction” from China as the reason for the omission.
The United States mission in Geneva last week had urged WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to invite Taiwan to the virtual meeting but a sellout like WHO Chief was never going to heed to the US’ requests, instead he heard his Chinese masters.

China considers Taiwan a part of its territory under the ‘One China’ policy and therefore any recognition by WHO when invited as a separate country would mean deflecting from the One China line. Therefore, Beijing went out of its way to pressurize WHO into cancelling the invitation for Taiwan.
Philippines voting Chinese judge at the ICJ
Coming to the South China Sea, where the Philippines has been repeatedly troubled by encroaching PLA Navy troops that claim rights over the sovereignty of the country—the Robert Duterte regime has once again flipped to the Chinese side in absence of Donald Trump.
The Philippines’ Foreign Minister has ordered the country’s mission to the United Nations to vote for China’s candidate to fill one of five seats at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) that will become vacant next year.
A month prior, the Philippines was giving out threats to China that it will evoke its partner, the US, if PLA-N troops intruded in the Philippines waters. However, the US elections and the selection of Joe Biden has not gone down well with Manila. The country and its easily influenced regime is now retracting on its stance and going back to the Chinese fold. Joe Biden will have his task cut out if he wants Manila back in its corner.
Cambodia demolishing US-built facilities
Last but not the least, another US-built facility at a naval base in Cambodia has been demolished by the Cambodian administration without giving any deets as to why it had done so, out of the blue. Speculation of possible plans of covertly hosting China’s military in the demolished bases have been floated by the Pentagon.
Reported by TFI in October, the Cambodian government had demolished one of the country’s largest Naval base, Ream Naval Base built by the US. However, as soon as the news reached Washington and Trump flexed his muscles, Cambodia went on a course-correction mode.

Cambodian PM even told a pro-establishment news website site Fresh News, “No such thing could happen because hosting foreign military bases is against the Cambodian constitution.”
However, after the demolition of the second military base, the Cambodian administration is uncharacteristically unfazed by the prospect of any US sanction, presumably because of Joe Biden’s accession to the top.
It is still pretty early days and all these developments could just be a coincidence but the possibility cannot be ruled out that the Joe Biden era of Presidentship is only going to grant more and more power to the dragon.
