Inviting for debate on twitter
Fox News host Trish Regan: Hey
#China State TV – let’s have an HONEST debate on #trade. You accuse me of being ‘emotional’ and not knowing my facts – wrong! You name the time and place, and I’ll be there!
CGTN host Liu Xin May 23th: I hear you. Will get back to you very soon. But I don’t want to play any mud throwing game, if that’s what you prepare to do.
Trish Regan: Don’t worry—I don’t sling mud, I sling FACTS. So, let’s find a date. This is a meaningful debate to have.
Liu Xin: Hi
@trish_regan, if you do mean an HONEST debate on #trade, let’s do it Monday evening live on your show – on your turf. Contact me via Twitter. My name is not #China State TV. It’s LIU Xin and please, feel free to call me Xin. See you Monday evening your time, if you will.
Trish Regan: Dear LIU
@thepointwithlx – I look forward to having you on the program for an honest debate. I wouldn’t debate any other way. Mon is #MemorialDay—a day we honor those that died protecting our country. So, Monday, won’t work—but, later in the week will. We’ll coordinate directly
Liu Xin: Dear Regan
@trish_regan, I see Monday is not good for you. Please let me know when is better next week. Seeing the kind of reaction online, I want to say, it’s important for us to have a meaningful discussion to try to understand each other better. I appreciate the opportunity.
Trish Regan: Hi Ms. LIU Xin – it is, indeed, an important debate. Please check your DM for my contact info. Wednesday night, live at 8pm, works. I look forward to meeting you
@thepointwithlx & having an honest debate on #trade. Sincerely, Trish Regan
Liu Xin: Hi Trish
