Joe Biden in 2019: ‘China Is Not Our Problem’
Former Vice President's remarks did not age well
Former Vice President Joe Biden said in 2019 that he told former President Barack Obama that “China is not our problem."
At the time, Biden's statement did not receive much push back, but it didn't age well.
Less than six months later, the coronavirus pandemic, which originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China, decimated the global economy.
“I’ve met virtually every major world leader in the last 40 years — not hyperbole, fact,” Biden said in October.
“We talked about China. I said China is not our problem," Biden declared at the time.
"China is not our problem if we invest and remember who we are," added.
"Imagine the situation — I’ve spent more time with Xi Jinping than any world leader had before I left the vice presidency.”
In April, a pro-Trump super PAC ad accused Biden of “being soft on China” as the world turns its attention to Wuhan labs and the real catalyst for the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump also criticized China for its role in the coronavirus pandemic.
In May, a bombshell leaked intelligence dossier revealed China was also actively engaging in a cover-up of the origins of the coronavirus by hiding and destroying evidence.
Meanwhile, Biden has frequently dismissed the notion that China poses a threat to the U.S., arguing the communist nation was “not competition for us,” adding “they’re not bad folks.”
In January, Neon Nettle reported that Hunter Biden's Ukraine energy company took hundreds of millions of dollars from China.
Hunter forged other business deals with individuals and entities with ties to the Chinese, Russian & Kazakh governments, according to investigative author Peter Schweizer's book titled "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite."
As a member of the board at Burisma, the deals reportedly scored the younger Biden hundreds of millions of dollars.
The Daily Caller News Foundation also reported the Hunter received over $700,000 from Rosemont Seneca Bohai, a capital management company with intimate financial ties to one of China’s national banks.
