Beijing press says, Trump's media attacks play into China's hands.

Donald Trump’s war on the media means he will struggle to challenge China over “ideological” questions such as human rights, a Communist party-controlled newspaper claimed, as the US president intensified his offensive against the press, labelling journalists “the enemy of the American people”.

In an editorial published on Saturday morning, China’s state-run Global Times newspaper celebrated how Trump’s early moves in office suggested he would be “less concerned about issues like human rights” – long a bone of contention between western governments and Beijing’s authoritarian rulers.

“His war with mainstream media makes it difficult for Trump to ally with the media on [the] ideological front against China,” the state-run tabloid said, adding: “Many have predicted that Trump’s presidency would exacerbate the recession of liberalism.”
