“‘Unpresidented’ Trump adds fuel to fire”, a mocking reference to a misspelt tweet the President-elect put out earlier this week the newspaper accused the brash US leader of adding “the most fuel to the fire”.
“Trump is not behaving as a president who will become master of the White House in a month,” it reads. “He bears no sense of how to lead a superpower.”
It goes on to warn: “Since he has not taken office, China has kept a calm attitude toward his provocative remarks. But if he treats China after assuming office in the same way as in his tweets, China will not exercise restraint.
“The Chinese government should be fully prepared for a hard-line Trump.
“We should show Trump what the one-China policy is and what bottom lines in Sino-US ties he should not touch.
“Once he does, he is bound to suffer the same losses that he makes China suffer from.”
