Thomas Friedman overlooked accusations of genocide because China has high-speed trains
China is a much better place than America despite those pesky accusations of genocide against Uighurs, according to New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman.
A formal legal opinion recently published in the United Kingdom and cited by the BBC on Sunday concluded that here is a “very credible case” that China is carrying out genocide against Uighurs,” but Friedman feels the communist nation is much better off than the United States anyway.
Friedman appeared on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” on Monday night to declare that China has luxurious high-speed trains because they don’t have to worry about people like former President Donald Trump and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga. The Times columnist said the GOP “sold their soul” to Trump and essentially claimed the United States would have better methods of mass transportation if it followed in China’s footsteps.
“Do you know that it takes four hours and 18 minutes to take the Bullet Train from Beijing to Shanghai? And it takes 21 hours to take the train from New York to Chicago and they’re both about the same distance,” Freidman told Chris Cuomo, who nodded along to his every word, in a clip flagged by Mediaite.
