Guo Weng, a controversial Chinese billionaire, on Thursday said, there was a small clique of corrupt “kleptocrats” running China. He also warned about a wave of Chinese spies being dispatched to the United States in recent months.
“What they are doing is against humanity. They are just a tiny group of Mafia, pure and simple. They post a great threat to American people and their property,” Weng said through a translator.
The Chinese billionaire made an appearance at the National Press Club in Washington. The appearance occurred two days after the think tank meeting was postponed after a heavy pressure from the Chinese government.
The U.S. ought to take action instead of just talking to the Chinese kleptocracy, he said in an interview. He wanted the members of the Chinese Communist Party to go against the Mafia forces.
Guo stated, he was aware of multiple initiatives by the rogue groups in China to increase the number of spies in the U.S. He says, the clique plans to bring turmoil to the country and decimate the U.S.
“Those efforts are 100 times or even 1,000 times as potentially damaging as the September 11, 2001 terror attacks,” Weng added.
Weng’s appearance in Washington was the latest in a recent flurry of controversies surrounding the real estate tycoon. He fled to the United States in 2015 after learning, a security offer he had ties with, was being targeted by an anticorruption campaign.
In September, the controversial billionaire applied for political asylum in the U.S. He continued to direct derogatory remarks and salacious attacks on social media, against his targets.
Earlier this year, the Chinese government asked the Interpol to issue an international arrest warrant for Guo. As per reports, the Chinese prosecutors are investing Gua for 19 major criminal cases.
“My goal was to engage in some revolutionary activities with the $17 million which is all frozen by the Chinese government. My single goal is to change China,” Weng mentioned.
He is a real-estate magnate who goes under the alias Miles Kwok and resides in a $68 million apartment in New York City.
