A Democrat who wants to become the next president will establish a closer alliance with Communist China if he is sworn into office in the new year.
Joe Biden has given the strongest indication that a Biden administration would stop protecting American enterprises and more closely collaborate with the CCP (Chinese Communist Party.)
Biden used an opinion editorial in a Chinese-language newspaper, whose editors reportedly make extravagant trips to Beijing, to express solidarity with the CCP.
“Our approach to China will focus on boosting American competitiveness, revitalizing our strengths at home, and renewing our alliances and leadership abroad,” he said, according to the World Journal. “We will work to collaborate with China [the CCP] when it is in our interest, including on public health and climate change.”
Biden criticized President Donald Trump for stating the origin of the CCP Virus during press conferences and claimed it somehow caused crime to jump up against Americans of Asian appearance. He did not provide any statistics from before and after the pandemic to back up this allegation.
“To deflect blame for his failure to protect our nation from this crisis, he insists on calling COVID-19 the ‘China virus,’ no matter how many thousands of reported racist incidents against Asian Americans it encourages,” he said.
The Democrat also accused the president of taking no action to help contain the deadly disease, even though the United States was one of the first developed nations to close its borders to travelers arriving from mainland China on Jan. 31.
“Donald Trump knew how deadly COVID-19 [CCP Virus] was back in January and did nothing to stop it,” he said. “More than 220,000 Americans are dead, some 30 million have lost jobs, hours, wages, [and] one in five small businesses have shut down … we are eight months in but Trump still has no plan.”
If Biden is sworn in as president in January, his first order of business will be to reopen the nation to China and the rest of the world.
“COVID-19 [CCP Virus] is proof that the United States cannot isolate itself from the world,” he said. “We have to work with other nations to meet global challenges that impact us all, starting by rebuilding our relationships with our closest partners. We are a Pacific power, and we will stand with friends and allies to advance our shared prosperity, security, and values in the Asia-Pacific region.”
The Hoover Institution recently revealed the New York City-based World Journal used to publish stories critical of the CCP, such as the 2017 death of the jailed Chinese human rights advocate and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo.
“[However,] the journal’s coverage has shifted in recent years and become more pro-PRC in a variety of areas, such as China’s militarization of the South China Sea and its handling of Taiwan and Hong Kong,” the institution said in its 2019 report.
Anonymous sources from the publication revealed the editorial stance changed after Chinese consulates in New York City and San Francisco pressured its U.S. offices to neither publish ads promoting the peaceful Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) meditation exercises nor encourage readers to behave truthfully, compassionately, and tolerantly in their daily lives.
The CCP has arbitrarily detained, tortured, organ harvested, and killed at least 4,363 Falun Gong adherents who refused to renounce their beliefs from as early as 1999, according to the Minghui website.
“The New York office has already acquiesced in full for the East Coast edition,” the report said. “The West Coast edition now only runs Falun Gong ads in throwaway sections of the paper.”
World Journal Executive Editor Vincent Chang openly admitted the publication had adopted a new perspective on mainland China since he became the chief content officer in October 2016.
“I have made it my goal to make this paper as neutral and journalistic as possible,” he said, according to the report.
