    • 1990, Ronald Reagan, An American Life[1], Pocket Books, →ISBN, LCCN 91-28704, OCLC 495476481, page 369:
      Thanks to some tutoring we'd gotten in Washington, Nancy and I both managed to handle our chopsticks with adequate deftness. We generally heeded advice that Richard Nixon, who'd come to Beijing in 1972, had given us before we left on the trip: Don't ask about the food they serve you at the big banquets, just swallow it. Still, I had difficultly identifying several items on my plate that first night, so I stirred them around in hopes of camouflaging my reluctance to eat them.
  2. (metonymically) The government of the People's Republic of China.
    • 2019, Ching-Tse Cheng, “Chinese spy confirms China's involvement in Taiwan 2020 election”, in Taiwan News[2]:

      Wang also disclosed details about CCP's plans to take over Hong Kong and Australia, reported Liberty Times.
