As mainstream media outlets across America write positive coverage about the Lincoln Project‘s ads attacking President Trump and the organization’s belief that “Trump and those who sign onto Trumpism are a clear and present danger,” another media source is promoting the group: Chinese Communist Party propaganda outlets.

China Global Television Network (CGTN) and China Daily — both deemed by the State Department as foreign agents — are operated by the Communist Chinese Party and have frequently voiced support for the group, as reported by the National Pulse.

Ceng Jing, editor for CGTN, wrote an op-ed piece detailing the group’s founding, purpose, and advertising campaigns with ads that play constantly on news channels and Youtube pages across America.

“A group known as the Lincoln Project has produced dozens of hit videos that quickly reached millions of views on Twitter and Youtube,” the communist Chinese publication editor wrote. “The videos’ success at ridiculing the American president, from his failure at handling the coronavirus pandemic to his sluggish walk down the ramp at West Point, has established the group as a leading voice in the online political crusade against Trump.”

The Lincoln Project is made of supposed Republicans seeking to defeat Donald Trump at the ballot box — going so far as to pledge their support for Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

The National Pulse also notes how the Chinese outlets are using the Lincoln Project’s attacks to distance China from taking responsibility for the pandemic.

CGTN writes that “the [Lincoln Project] puts the spotlight on Trump’s comments at the beginning of the pandemic in reaction to the delay in COVID-19 testing: “I don’t take responsibility at all.”

Analysts say President Joe Biden is unlikely to “prompt dramatic sanctions action on Iran’s oil exports” due to “worries about boosting oil prices and angering top buyer China” according to Reuters.

Speaking to Fox News on Sunday, House Republican Representative Steve Scalise, said the administration had made it easier for Iran to sell its oil, generating revenues that were being used to “go fund terrorist activity.”

The Biden administration has maintained for months that among its primary goals is to keep the Gaza conflict between terror group Hamas and Israel from turning into a wider regional war. However, House Republican leaders accused President Joe Biden of failing to enforce existing measures and said they would take up this week a series of bills to sharpen sanctions on Iran.

Kimberly Donovan, a sanctions and anti-money laundering expert at the Atlantic Council, said that oil-related sanctions have not been strictly enforced in the past couple of years.

“I would not expect the administration to tighten enforcement in response to Iran’s missile and drone attacks against Israel over the weekend, mainly for concerns (that) could lead to increases in oil prices,” she said.

“The price of oil and ultimately the prices of gas at the pump become critical during an election year.”
