Joe Biden’s awful record with China is about to be his undoing.
He would give anything to undo the past.
Joe Biden’s presidential run stopped dead when a top Republican said these seven words.
The Chinese coronavirus has proven once and for all how terrible the Democrats’ globalism really is.
The idea that America should put the world’s interests above America’s is terrible.
It puts America at a disadvantage on the world stage and has allowed China to take advantage of us.
America needs to radically rethink our relationship with China to make sure nothing like this coronavirus ever comes out of China again.
No Democrat has been easier on China than former Vice President Joe Biden.
It may be because the Chinese government provided his son Hunter Biden’s firm with a billion dollars in funding through a private equity deal in 2013 when Joe Biden was Vice President.
The fact that Joe Biden’s public policy decisions seem to be influenced by his son’s business deals is troubling.
“China is going to eat our lunch?” Biden said last year, “Come on, man…they can’t even figure out how to deal with the fact that they have this great division between the China Sea and the mountains in the east, I mean in the west.”
China’s cover-up for months on the true extent of the coronavirus crisis has cost thousands of Americans their lives and millions their livelihoods.
Donald Trump was working to keep China accountable even before the coronavirus crisis started.
Senator Tom Cotton put it bluntly in an article written for the National Review that is titled “Joe Biden Is China’s Choice for President.”
In it, he says:
Despite the occasional box-checking, wishy-washy comment slapping Beijing on the wrist for the worst of its abuses, the reality is that the former vice president’s support of the People’s Republic of China is deep and longstanding. In the critical fight over whether to grant most-favored-nation trade status and World Trade Organization membership to China in the 1990s — a fight in which, again, many of his party’s leaders in Congress were on the right side — Biden carefully shepherded China through the process from his powerful perch as the senior Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Wherever a brake might have been applied — by placing human-rights or labor conditions on most-favored-nation status, for example — Biden voted the measures down and lobbied other senators for Beijing. Unfortunately, China and Biden got their way, and American workers are still suffering from it.
It should have been a warning on more fronts than one when President Obama recruited Biden to his ticket to buttress his credibility on foreign policy; unsurprisingly, there was no about-face on Beijing. As the Chinese Communist Party gained strength and Xi Jinping seized absolute power, Biden continued to push for closer ties and even more trade. As for American workers? In February 2012, in friendly remarks with Xi standing next to him, Biden praised Beijing as a “new partner” that would help to meet “global challenges,” and said Americans “welcome this competition. . . . It pushes our companies to develop better products and services and our government to craft better policies.” Millions of American jobs were disappearing as he spoke, and the militarization of the South China Sea was just around the corner.
Joe Biden’s record on China should keep him from ever coming near the presidency.
If America wants a strong recovery, we need a president who is working for us and not China, and will make sure that China’s Communist government pays for the virus they unleashed on the world.
