TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The controversial Chinese real estate tycoon Guo Wengui (郭文貴), living in exile in New York, claims that the U.S. government is preparing to further escalate their trade war with China in the coming weeks.

According to Guo, the Trump Administration is preparing to seize the overseas financial assets of several top officials of the Chinese government, and some former leaders.

Guo has named current Vice President Wang Qishan (王岐山), former party chairman Jiang Zemin (江泽民), and former Premier Zhu Rongji (朱鎔基) as individuals likely to have assets seized by the U.S. government, according to CMM Media.

He claims Washington is conducting as many as 18 secret investigations into communist party officials, and that he expects them to be completed within the next three weeks. China’s Hainan Airlines Corporation and its leadership are reportedly a target for some of the investigations.
