China is capitalizing on the political unrest in the United States, using its propaganda to suggest Democracy is broken and China's governance is superior, according to foreign affairs expert Gordon Chang.

"What we have seen over the last three or four days is unrelenting propaganda assaults against American democracy. They've caused chaos in American streets last year actually fomenting violence," Chang told Sunday's "The Cats Roundtable" on WABC 770 AM-N.Y.

"And now they're pointing out that the violence at the Capitol is a demonstration that American democracy is broken. That the American republic is over. And that China's superior form of governance should be the one that prevails around the world. This is an indication that Beijing indeed believes it is the world's only legitimate ruler."

Chang warned host John Catsimatidis, "the Chinese military is becoming much more influential in Beijing," which "looks like the beginning of a military takeover of China" which does not bode well for Americans or the next president.

"China right now believes it can do anything it wants," Chang said. "If we thought 2020 was a bad year, 2021, and possibly 2022, are going to be far worse as Beijing demands obedience from everybody, including a guy named Joe Biden.

"He will have to deal with this militant, belligerent, provocative China."

Chang added a call for economic decoupling from China, something very unlikely with Joe Biden coming into the White House.

"We've got to get the Chinese companies out of our markets because they are not complying with our securities laws," Chang said. "Also we need to get American companies, American investors, out of Chinese markets. We should not be enriching a hostile state that is configuring its military to kill Americans."
