China urged people in the United States to take a rational and objective view of the relationship between the two countries as Republican front-runner Donald Trump all but clinched the party's presidential nomination on Tuesday, NBC News reported.
Over the course of his campaign, Trump has repeatedly attacked China, saying its trade policies are "killing" America, its currency devaluations will "suck the blood out" of the U.S. and accusing the country of "raping" the States.
Though China's state media has largely avoided responding to Trump's attacks, it seems the rest of the country may have missed the memo. The South China Morning Post referred to Trump Wednesday as a "brash man with no political experience" while the Global Times called him a "rich narcissist" and a "racist."
The criticism is unlikely to dent Trump's celebrity status in China or deter the legions of fans on social media.
