Chen Wihua, the European Union (EU) bureau chief for China Daily, a Chinese state-run news outlet, called Sen. Marsha Blackbun (R-TN) a “lifetime bitch” and more after she said China has a history of stealing and cheating in a Thursday tweet.

Blackburn tweeted, “China has a 5,000 year history of cheating and stealing. Some things will never change…”

In his initial response, Weihua tweeted, “Bitch”

In a second tweet, Weihua said, “This is the most racist and ignorant US Senator I have seen. A lifetime bitch.”

In a third tweet, Weihua said, “Wonder why the US Congress would have approval rating as low as 9% (according to Gallup)? It is because people like lowlife Marsha Blackburn were there.”

Responding to Weihua’s tweets, Blackburn tweeted, “Chen, you’re a puppet in Xi Jinping’s delusional China dream for global domination. From Tiananmen Square to Uyghur genocide, Communist China is an expert at slaughtering populations. America will not bow down to sexist communist thugs.

Earlier in the day, Blackburn also tweeted thanks to President Donald Trump for banning cotton imports made from forced Chinese labor. On Wednesday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced an order to seize cotton imports produced by the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps (XPCC), citing concerns about forced labor in Xinjiang, where an estimated 1.8 million Muslim minority Uyghurs are believed to be detained.

Blackburn tweeted, “Thank you @realDonaldTrump for banning cotton produced by forced Uyghur labor. The U.S. will not support companies that profit off of slave labor.”

On Wednesday, Blackburn also tweeted “Count me in!” to a report by The Guardian, that politicians around the world are purchasing Australian wine in defiance of Chinese tariffs against Australia.
