WATCH: Elizabeth Warren Slams Trump While Praising Communist China

On Tuesday, appearing on CBS This Morning to push her new book, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren chose to rip President Trump by comparing him to another government that she apparently finds more admirable: the government of Communist China.

Questioning President Trump’s strategy vis-à-vis North Korea, Warren praised Communist China for its “long-time, whole-of-government strategy.”

Apparently Warren prefers governments that appear stable because the president makes himself dictator for life, as Xi Jinping, the president of China has done.

Warren was interviewed by CBS host John Dickerson, who stated, “There is a North Korean official apparently coming to America. You said the president doesn’t look like he has a strategy, but it looks like his calling off the summit last week seems to have lit a fire under the North Koreans. Three hostages have been released, so maybe there is a strategy?”

Warren replied:

You know, look. North Korea is a bad actor, we understand that, uh and uh, the president had already promised that they could have a meeting with the President of the United States, something that both Kim Jong Un’s father and grandfather had long, long sought. Then it’s been back and it’s been forth. I want this to work, I want this to work to reduce the threat to South Korea, to Japan, to our allies in the region, to the United States of America, to the entire world, but it really takes a strategy and I look at the comparison with China.

Then Warren gushed with praise for Communist China: “Look at what China is doing. China’s got the long term arc and it’s playing everybody. It’s playing North Korea, it’s playing South Korea, it’s playing the United States of America because it has a long-time whole-of-government strategy that keeps driving towards an end.”

Warren ignored the human rights abuses perpetrated by the Chinese government. As even the leftist Huffington Post acknowledged when writing of the prisoners in China, “Plus thousands upon thousands of others. Their names and “crimes” are listed one after another. They are the imprisoned and the missing, the tortured and the executed. They are Tibetans, Uighurs, Kazakhs, Han Chinese. They are businessmen, environmentalists, priests, journalists. Men, women and children too. Eight thousand seven hundred and sixty-five in all.”
