The tweet said that a leaked Chinese geopolitical strategy document reveals China’s self-confidence. Vishvas News in its investigation found the CNN tweet to be fabricated. Viral post is fake.

Claim:

Twitter user ‘Lord Miles Routledge Adventures’ posted on Twitter the viral screenshot and wrote: Half of people think china is collapsing and the other half think china is doing great, however, idk anyone who thinks the west is doing great

The Tweet said: A leaked Chinese geopolitical strategy document reveals China’s self-confidence.
