Donald Trump is the savior of our nation! While Obama creates terrorist organisations and Hillary sells classified materials, Donald Trump is transparent and ruthless against the enemies of the USA. It seems that China is confronting our new leader since the beginning. Read more below:
“China steals United States Navy research drone in international waters — rips it out of water and takes it to China in unprecedented act,” Trump tweeted, with the initial 7:30 a.m. post reading “unpresidented.”

Several hours after Trump’s tweet, China announced it would return the drone and said the incident was “hyped up” by the U.S.
On Thursday, as the USNS Bowditch was on a research mission in the South China Sea, a Chinese naval vessel grabbed one of two research drones operated by the ship.

“The UUV (unmanned underwater vehicle) was lawfully conducting a military survey in the waters of the South China Sea,” said Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis on Friday. “It is ours, and it is clearly marked as ours and we would like it back. And we would like this not to happen again.”
Davis said the Bowditch was on a mission to map an underwater channel.
The incident was not just a minor blowup, said one expert.
“This is an act of war against the United States,” said Gordon Chang, analyst and author of The Coming Collapse of China, saying the theft of military property constitutes an act of war.
“Knowing Chinese military officials for many years and how orders are communicated from the highest power centers in Beijing down to commanders on the ground or water, this was very likely a highly planned and escalatory move to show China will not take matters lightly when it comes to President-elect Trump’s phone call and comments on Taiwan, or Chinese actions overall,” said Harry Kazianis, director of defense studies at the Center for the National Interest.
The Global Times, which serves as the official newspaper of China’s Communist Party, quoted retired Chinese admiral Yang Yi as saying China had the right to take the drone.
“If China needs to take it, we’ll take it. (America) can’t block us,” Yang was quoted as saying.
“It’s natural for us to take possession of and research for a bit these types of things that America sends to our doorstep,” Yang said. “The louder they shout, the more their protests ring hollow.”
Amid the bellicose rhetoric, China’s foreign ministry had issued a statement saying the American and Chinese military were resolving the issue.
Chinese-American relations have grown tense since Trump took a phone call from Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen. The protocol-shattering call was significant to China, which considers Taiwan a breakaway province.
Although the drone was being returned, controversy over the incident was not reserved to tensions between the U.S. and China.
