US presidential candidate Trump makes China a campaign issue

Since the day he entered the United States presidential race, Donald Trump has led the pack of Republicans.

More than a dozen candidates tried to stop him. All but two have dropped out of the race. That’s despite or maybe even because of his harsh views on Muslims, Mexicans and China.

Trump has the support of 43 percent of Republicans across the United States. That’s more than 12 points higher than his closest competitor.

Candidates are awarded delegates after each round of voting in each state. On the Republican side, 1,237 delegates are needed to win the party’s nomination.

Trump is the only candidate who’s more than half of the way there. Trump’s Democratic challengers Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have come out strongly against him for some of his more extreme views. That includes his views on China.

What's the flipside of all of this and how do the Chinese view Donald Trump? CCTV's Wu Guoxiu reports from Beijing.

The Trump phenomenon has gone viral on China’s social media. A video clip called “Learn the ABC of Trump” is making fun of his famous rhetoric.

To many young Chinese, the billionaire candidate is more like an entertainer, rather than a presidential candidate.

But many Chinese don’t think Trump will be friendly towards China, if he makes it into the White House.

Donald Trump has not only intrigued intellectuals in China, but has also ignited ordinary people’s curiosity, though their focuses are quite different.

But no matter who wins the presidency, it’s how China-U.S. relations will be affected that the Chinese are mostly concerned about.
