Why does he want to emphasize that his wife is Chinese and not Japanese? This has to start from a mistake by Hunter…
In July last year, when the Chinese son-in-law met with the Chinese foreign minister, he accidentally misunderstood his wife as a “Japanese.” After that, he hurriedly apologized and corrected his wife as a Chinese. joke. Later, when he went to Japan, he also specifically clarified that his wife is Chinese.
It is reported that Hunter’s wife Lucia Guo is from Xi’an, China.
