Chinese civil rights activist Chen Guangcheng on Wednesday backed President Trump's reelection bid, telling America to vote for Trump "for our future."

The blind activist, who escaped from China in the 2012 with the help of the United States, called the ruling Chinese Communist Party "an enemy of humanity." And he called on America "with its values of freedom, democracy, and the rule of law, to gather a coalition of other democracies to stop China’s aggression." 

“President Trump has led on this and we need the other countries to join him in this fight – a fight for our future,” he also said at the Republican National Convention. 

Chen also challenged the foreign policy of the preceding Obama administration, in which Trump's Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, was the vice president, suggesting it was a strategy of appeasement with Beijing.
