There must be a reason why this information is being made public now;
The papers show that Mao’s comments about Chinese women were a recurring theme.
He lamented the dismal state of trade between the two countries but remarked that China had an excess of women.
He suggested sending tens of thousands to the US, but later in the conversation increased his offer to 10 million.
The remark provoked laughter and was clearly meant as a joke, but Mao went on to complain that Chinese women were giving birth to too many children.
If they were sent to the US he said, they would flood the country with disaster.
Mao Zedong; revolutionary, calligrapher, poet, pimp.
