While President Trump just secured a phase one trade deal with China, Joe Biden’s record on China remains atrocious.

  • Since the 1970s, Biden held little respect for China. He thought their military was “impotent” and said China was “considerably less formidable” than he originally thought.
  • In 1997, Biden voted against an “amendment to express the sense of the Senate that China’s most-favored-nation trade status should be revoked.”
  • In 2000, Biden voted against human rights standards and enforcement prior to the implementation of permanent normal trade relations with China.
  • Biden has also voted against labor standards and voted against environmental standards in permanent normal trade relations with China.
  • In 2007, despite his tough rhetoric that he would take countries “to the mat” on trade, Biden opposed the idea of applying tariffs on China.
  • In 2016, Biden was the Obama Administration’s “leading pitchman” for TPP, which would have allowed China to “reap benefits” from trade “without having to abide by any of [TPP] terms.”
  • And back in May, Biden downplayed the Chinese threat to the American economy and doubled down in June stating, “What are we worried about?”

And it’s not just his political views that raise red flags, NBC has reported on the Biden family’s conflicts of interest when Joe was VP.

His son Hunter tagged along on Joe’s official trip to China in 2013 to meet with Jonathan Li, a Chinese banker, at the same time Hunter was trying to form a Chinese equity fund set on raising “big money.”

In less than two weeks, Chinese authorities issued the business license for the fund and Hunter was on the board of said company.
