Trump: China & Iran ‘Would Own America’ if Joe Biden Becomes President
President warns of who would take ownership of America
President Donald Trump warned that if former Vice President Joe Biden wins the election in 2020, the United States would be effectively owned by Iran and China.
The president responded to a question regarding Iran:
“If Joe Biden got in, they’d own America,” Trump said, referring to the Obama administration’s soft approach to Iran.
“Between them and China and Japan and Mexico and Canada, they’d own America," he added.
"You would not have a country left if he got in.”

Trump also said that he was willing to work with Iran, but suggested they were trying to wait for the next administration.
“John Kerry, I guess, just doesn’t want them to make a deal, and they’re probably figuring they can wait,” he said.
“They know with me; it doesn’t work that way."
On Friday, a pro-Trump super PAC unveiled a new ad accusing Biden of “being soft on China” as the world turns its attention to Wuhan labs and the real catalyst for the coronavirus pandemic.
Axios reported the America First Action would spend $10 million on a testing advertisement, which labels the former vice president as “Beijing Biden” in three key states that helped get Trump elected in 2016.
“For 47 years the DC Elite has made one country great — Joe Biden has led the charge,” says the narrator as a compilation.

The clips then show Biden stating:
“That a rising China is a positive development” and “we’re not trying to slow down Chinese growth.”
Last week, Trump promised to "find out" whether the coronavirus leaked from a Chinese lab, which triggered the current global pandemic.
The president confirmed during a Friday press briefing that his administration is investigating the origins of the coronavirus outbreak.
Trump added the federal government is investigating whether the novel coronavirus escaped from a laboratory in Wuhan, China - ground zero for the pandemic.
"We're looking at it. A lot of people are looking at it," Trump told reporters at the White House on Friday.
"It seems to make sense," he added.
