Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, who Xi Jinping called “the most human, most emotional person out of all the (Chinese) officials,” says he is planning a “change of the regime” in Beijing to bring democracy to China. From his luxury apartment in Manhattan Guo said he aims for “rule of law” to be established within three years in the world’s most populated country.

From a luxury Manhattan apartment, Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui is plotting a “change of the regime” in Beijing and developing a new media platform with the aim of introducing democracy in the world’s most populous country.
The fugitive real estate mogul settled in April in New York, on the 18th floor of a hotel facing Central Park, where he’s now waiting with his wife for a decision on his claim for US political asylum.
“I want to try and to have rule of law, I want to try and have democracy, freedom, that’s my ultimate goal… A change of the regime,” he told AFP in a recent exclusive interview. He’s set a timeline of three years.
For several months, Guo has been flooding social networks with searing accusations of corruption against China’s rich and powerful.
