Biden made big boasts, and promises, about China during his campaign. But it looks like now he’s doing a complete 180. At least, based on what he recently said.
Many people questioned Biden’s ability to handle China, given his history. But Biden claimed his past relationship with the country, and their president Xi, would make him a better president than Trump.
He even claimed China was no threat—that they were “good folks.”
But soon after he was elected, he appeared to change his tune. After a call with President Xi, he has lost all his nerve.
From Fox Business:
President Biden warned that China will “eat our lunch” on Thursday after speaking with Chinese President Xi Jinping for the first time Wednesday night since becoming president – a sentiment that seemed to contradict some of his statements on the campaign trail…
Biden’s comments on Thursday seemed in direct opposition to his position in 2019.
“China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man!” Biden said at a rally in 2019.
Joe Biden said after talking with China, the country would “eat our lunch” if we “don’t get moving.”
Oh, really Joe? You literally said the opposite during a rally in 2019.
Can you believe this guy? If you believed him back then, you would have thought China was run by a bunch of kittens.
Biden was strongly critical of Trump’s approach, who hammered China into submission with tariffs.
Now, Biden is doing a complete flip-flop, literally contradicting what he said just two years ago.
But does any of this surprise us? Biden never seemed to really understand the threat China posed. And he has a history of contradicting his own statements time and again.
It seems only now does he realize that Trump’s approach to China was the right approach. But what does he mean by “get moving”?
I think we were moving pretty fast when Trump was in the White House, right? He had no problem holding China at bay, to help American industry claw back some success.
Thanks to Trump, American steel, aluminum, and energy was surging. Already Biden has passed policy that hurts that progress.
But now he’s worried about China? Come on, man! You should have realized this years ago.
What will Biden do to actually prevent China from “eating our lunch”? Is he going to bother to help keep America competitive?
Or is he going to continue pushing leftist policies that put us at a disadvantage?
- Joe Biden claimed China would “eat our lunch” if we “don’t get moving.”
- In 2019, he said China wouldn’t “eat our lunch,” using the same phrase.
- Biden has not explained how he will keep China at bay.
