I made no mention of Trump with relation to this conversation about Chinese gov't corruption. The number of houses he has is not pertinent.
But if you want to go there -
Trump has a documented history as a businessman who is successful thereby providing him with funds for 7 houses.
Xi has worked for state owned companies under the CCP's control for his entire career while he wasn't serving in official gov't positions. In these
state companies he made much less than his counterparts in the private sector would be making. Basically the 11k RMB he makes a month is probably the
highest paid he has ever been in any capacity. No way he could afford houses than run into the millions of RMB each.
Moving along -
The People's Congress is not a classified meeting, the press is allowed to attend and parts of it are shown on national TV. It's a governmental
meeting much like when the US congress is in session.
Please check your anti-Trumpism at the door when discussing the topic at hand, which is China.
