US President Donald Trump has argued against losing the presidential election, saying that if he fails in the election, Americans will have to learn Chinese, Business Insider reported.
"All they're waiting for, and China too, is that I'm defeated. Because if I'm defeated, China will own the United States," Trump told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.
"If I don't win the election, China will own the United States—you will have to learn to speak Chinese!" Trump added.
Donald Trump said that his relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping has deteriorated amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and that he has not spoken to his Chinese counterpart for a long time.
