More in your long line of claims without material support. More in your long line of ignoring my questions of you, and misrepresenting what I say. What I have long said is that the King of the Abyss is the same spirit as the Beast who ascends out of the Abyss, the Beast of Rev. 11, 13, 17, and 19. Nowhere do I "suggest" the King of the Abyss is the False Prophet:
When the Abyss is reopened at the 5th Trumpet (Rev. 9:2), the fallen angels are released. They have "a king over them, the angel of the Abyss" (9:11). Who can this be but Azazel? When he ascends, he becomes the Beast of Rev. 11, 13, 17, 19, "who will ascend out of the Abyss and go to perdition [the lake of fire: "be cast into the fire"]." Rev. 17:8 Satan gives him all the worldly power developed by of all the beast-kingdoms who ruled over the earth after the Flood.
Enoch 53:5-6 …the host of Azazel…became ministers of Satan, and seduced those who dwell upon earth.
Rev. 13:2 The Dragon [will give] him [the Beast] his power, his throne, and great authority.

Dan. 11:44 But news from the east and the north shall trouble [the King of the North]...
Russia, China, and Iran have long been becoming more and more closely allied against the NATO military and economic alliance. Both China and Russia have been prophesied in many visions to invade the U.S. So yes, China is clearly in this picture, being along with Iran the powers from the east to which this prophecy of Daniel is likely referring.
Xi (like Putin, Iran's Khameini, Turkey's Erdogan, and Obama) seems to have joined the ranks of those becoming cult-like rulers, not just politicians. "False anointed ones shall arise..." = 1st Seal. Very reminiscent of pre-World War II, with the ascents of Hitler, Mussolini, etc.
