Michael Bloomberg has some thoughts on China, and he recently shared them with “Firing Line’s” Margaret Hoover:
.@MikeBloomberg tells @FiringLineShow that China's leader is addressing pollution to satisfy constituents & secure his political future.
"The Communist Party wants to stay in power in China and they listen to the public," he says. pic.twitter.com/B9SoAXJwrM

.@MikeBloomberg claims Jinping isn’t a dictator b/c if he pisses off the Chinese people too much the Communist Party might collapse. Uh — literally every dictator has to deal w/ the possibility of revolution against them, & Jinping, like most dictators, responds with repression. https://t.co/y3Gc86Fg0P

Some brutal oppression is more equal than others.
