In this interview, NTD talked with Kevin, a California native who, in his words, went from an almond milk latte-drinking millennial liberal who viewed Donald Trump’s 2016 election as a catastrophe to America, to someone who voted for him in 2020.

As for what caused that drastic change—he cites his four-year experience living in China.

So why did learning about China change his views on U.S. politics?

And as a Mandarin speaker and reader, what did he learn about how Chinese people look at America?

We also talked about whether China is actually a socialist society by definition, the Chinese peoples’ obsession over money, and how to stay rational and less biased in this polarized world.
