The Scottish government calls for Trump to be banned from Scotland yet provides taxpayers money to an organisation controlled by the Chinese state. These Confucious Institutes represent Chinese "soft power" and forbid debate on contentious issues such as Taiwan and Tianenmen Square. Why the difference in stance? Trump was elected in 2016 and got 70 millions votes in 202. The Chinese are busily persecuting those fighting to defend democracy in Hong Kong. Why is our money being given to brutal despots?
