Joe Biden Pledges To End Tariffs On China

Joe Biden recently sat down for an interview with NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro and in a clip released yesterday, he revealed just how disastrous a Biden presidency would be for American workers.

Garcia-Navarro asked Biden, “Would you keep the tariffs?” Biden replied, “No.”

Garcia-Navarro followed up, “So if you scrap those tariffs, what do you want in return? Or are you just going to scrap them without any concessions?”

Biden’s response was utterly incoherent as he attempted to rattle off his globalist talking points: 

“The question is, what is the appropriate behavior that they have to engage in international rela– in international trade with us? And they have to play by the international rules, and what we have done is, we have disarmed ourselves. We make up 25% of the world’s economy, but we poked our finger in the eye of all of our allies out there. The way Trump– the way China will respond is when we gather the rest of the world that in fact [unintelligible] in in fr- in in in in open trade and making sure that we’re in a position that the world uh that that we deal with WHO the right way that in fact that’s when things begin to change. That’s when China, that’s when uh China’s behavior is going to change.”

Joe Biden is lost, the WHO has absolutely nothing to do with tariffs on China. But one thing Joe Biden has made clear is that he would roll back President Trump’s tough-on-China policies that hold their government accountable. Biden likes to talk about building back stronger, but returning to the China policy of administrations past will ensure China’s unfair trade advantages on the world stage which directly impacts the American worker, repercussions that he and his radical left cronies in Washington will never see.

When Joe Biden had the opportunity to protect American workers, he didn’t. His decades-long career in Washington proves that he will put China before the needs of Americans. He led the efforts to grant China “most favored nation” trading status and repeatedly voted to protect this status. While he promised American workers they wouldn’t lose their jobs, the United States lost millions of well-paying manufacturing jobs as a result.

Biden continues to underestimate China, saying “It is in our self-interest that China continues to prosper,” that “China’s not a problem,” and that China is “not bad” and “not competition” for America.

President Trump has remained committed and determined to put America and American workers first while holding predatory nations like China accountable. America is in the middle of a comeback and American workers cannot afford Beijing Biden’s history of globalist policies and poor judgment.
