Campaign Press Release - FACT: Joe Biden Will Never Stand Up To China

October 22, 2020

Even now, Biden repeats Chinese propaganda about the coronavirus and fails to admit he allowed China to kill millions of American jobs.

It's no wonder China prefers Joe Biden to win the election: Beijing Biden cozied up to the Chinese for decades and tolerated their trade abuses while they shuttered American factories and robbed America of millions of manufacturing jobs.

"The U.S. welcomes the emergence of a prosperous, integrated China," Biden told the Chinese in 2001. Now that Americans' distrust of China is at an all-time high, Biden is trying to rewrite history and hope voters forget the decades he spent rubber-stamping China's economic rise.

  • Biden championed China's entry into the World Trade Organization, which cost the United States 60,000 factories and 3.5 million jobs.

  • Biden led the effort to give China "most favored nation" trade status, falsely promising it would not hurt American workers. He even described his support for China as an "accomplishment" on his website.

  • For years, Biden defended China, saying, "It is in our self-interest that China continue to prosper," that "China's not a problem," and that China is "not competition" for America.

  • Biden even said last year that Chinese Communist Party officials are "not bad folks."

  • Biden blocked attempts to protect human rights in the U.S. trade relationship with China.

Despite China unleashing a deadly virus on the world, Biden hasn't changed. He's still kow-towing to Chinese interests over American workers:

While Biden is still defending China, President Trump is keeping his promise to stand up to China and hold the Chinese government accountable. He negotiated a trade deal that puts American workers first. He is pulling critical supply chains out of China. He called out China for its coronavirus coverup. He took a hard line on China's inexcusable intrusions into Hong Kong. In fact, ending American reliance on China is a main tenant of President Trump's second term agenda.

Joe Biden had a lifetime to prove he has what it takes to get tough on China­—and he failed. Beijing Biden has never stood up to China, and he never will.
