I think it is more a feeling of inferiority. Unlike his Taiwanese counterpart Tsai Ing-wen, Baby Ping Ping never stood for election to his post by the people of China and thus has no popular mandate to govern.

Last, his counterpart in Taiwan or any other western leader has to worry about ending up like Nicolae Ceaușescu but that fate is a real possibility for Baby Ping Ping.
