President Donald Trump’s recent flip-flops aren’t just making headlines in the United States ― they’ve also been noticed in China.

One of Trump’s reversals came on the issue of Chinese monetary policy. While he had previously accused Beijing of being “world champions” of currency manipulation, he reversed that position after a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping

Wall Street Journal reporter Te-Ping Chen, who is based in Beijing, showed how the press there was covering the sudden change of heart:  

Those headlines come just days after Chinese media criticized Trump’s air strikes in Syria, and after a long series of anti-Trump stories and headlines in the state-run media.

Chinese media has referred to Trump’s election a “democracy malfunction,” compared him to Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler, called him “as ignorant as a child” and mocked his spelling problems. During the presidential campaign, media in the country called Trump “big-mouthed” and “abusively forthright,” and even compared him to a clown.
