They don’t call him China Joe for nothing…
In a recent interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, President-elect Joe Biden sent mixed signals about his plan to deal with China and their poor management of the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Breitbart, Tapper asked, “The president-elect has said he will not immediately remove the Trump tariffs on China. Should the Chinese government, in your view, be further punished for mishandling and hiding the truth about the novel coronavirus that began there?”
Biden responded, “Jake, the president’s approach to China has been backwards. My concern from the beginning, I’ve spoken about it, and I’ve met with Xi more times than anybody had up until the time we left office, that I’m aware of, is to make it real clear to China, there are international rules that if you want to play by, we’ll play with you. If you don’t, we’re not going to play, number one. Number two, it’s not about punishing them for the COVID virus. It’s about insisting that there be international norms that are established that they play by.”
