The trade war between the United States and China parasitizes the American presidential campaign.
For months, Donald Trump has attacked Joe Biden on his supposed affinity ties with Beijing.
The Democratic candidate's son, Hunter Biden, even recently stepped down from the board of a Chinese company in an attempt to silence critics.
Suffice to say that the information revealed this Wednesday by the New York Times will relaunch the soap opera… but this time in the opposite direction.
According to the investigations of the American daily, the American president has a bank account in China where he has tried for years to do business.
Information that could harm the champion of "America First" who likes to pose as a real opponent of Beijing on the economic and diplomatic level.
An account in the name of Trump International Hotels Management
According to the New York Times, the real estate mogul maintained the office, which he had opened in China before he was elected, throughout his presidential term and attempted a partnership with a major Chinese company controlled by the state.
The US president also maintained a bank account in China, hitherto unknown and controlled by one of his companies, Trump International Hotels Management, according to an analysis of his tax returns.
The defense of the Republican head of state did not want to identify the bank in question.
As in Russia, where he unsuccessfully explored hotel and tower projects in Moscow, Donald Trump has long sought to establish his activities in China.
According to one such statement, the company paid China $ 188,561 in taxes when it struggled between 2013 and 2015 to enter into business license agreements.
The lawyer Alan Garten, indicated that this company had "opened an account with a Chinese bank, having offices in the United States, in order to pay its taxes".
"No agreement, transaction or other commercial activity has materialized and, since 2015, this account has remained inactive," he told the newspaper.
