For months, we've been following a man who risked everything to escape zero-covid China to chase his American dream. He's one of many trying to flee growing repression under Xi Jinping's rule. Some are even taking dangerous journeys to illegally enter America through Mexico @cnn

note: right now there is a de facto international travel ban, forbidding citizens from going overseas for “non-essential” reasons. Majority of citizens can't go overseas yet. What's telling how perceptions have changed since China has closed off its borders b/c of covid

Abe, Japan's longest-serving prime minister, was shot dead during a campaign speech in July - stunning a nation where gun violence is extremely rare. Acc to NHK poll, 57% of respondents oppose state funeral, vs 32% who support it @emijozuka @jessieyeung8

Take a walk with me in Tokyo where security is ramped up as former PM Shinzo Abe’s funeral is underway. It’s a controversial funeral for a polarizing leader: many citizens angry over the ~$12 million price tag paid w/ taxpayer $ at a time of economic struggles in Japan

✈️Made it to Europe from China! A bit rattling to exit an airplane with 100% mask wearing and flight attendants in full hazmat suits…then entering European airport & connecting flight with almost no one wearing masks. Will be back on @CNN in China later this month 🎥

Ambassador Burns calls Beijing's response a "manufactured crisis" He's "disturbed" by what the PRC is telling its own people about war in Ukraine, blaming it on US/NATO in "specious" arguments. Asks China to show up to negotiating table "meet us halfway"

China issues nationwide drought alert for the first time in nearly a decade. Millions of acres of farmland impacted, >1 million facing water shortages/struggling to get drinking water. Key factories forced to close... if it drags on, threatens global supply chains @jimsciutto

This story is censored in China. Run Philosophy" is a trending buzzword in China that advocates emigrating to escape Xi's rule. It's an outright rejection of Beijing's narrative that China is getting stronger & more prosperous…while America is in decline. @cnn @ErinBurnett
