In an interview with Fox News reporter Steve Hilton on Sunday, President Donald Trump said that there are very good reasons to completely end the economic relationship between the United States and China. However, he warned that putting Joe Biden in the White House would give China the geopolitical domination it has sought for so long.
“I don’t want to set the world on fire right now,” Trump said of cutting off economic ties with Beijing. “But there has been no country that has ripped us off more than China. We lose billions, hundreds of billions of dollars. We get nothing from China. Yes, we get some goods that we could produce ourselves, but we get nothing. All we do is lose money.”
After a rocky few years of negotiations with China, culminating in a vicious trade war that saw both countries escalate tariffs on the others’ exports, President Trump signed a new trade agreement with Beijing in January just before the coronavirus pandemic turned the relationship inside out and upside down.
“It’s no longer the same to me,” Trump said of the deal. Touting the possibility of ending ties with China, Trump said: “If they don’t treat us right, I would certainly do that.”
Trump lamented what the pandemic has done to the U.S.’s relationship with the CCP.
“We were doing better than we’ve ever done with China and I was all set to rock ‘N’ roll,” he said. “Then we got hit with this damn situation.”
He warned that a Biden presidency would undo everything.
“If he gets elected, China will own our country,” he said. “They own him and they want me to lose so badly. China owns Joe Biden. His son got a billion and a half dollars. His son with no experience, no brainpower, no anything, never did it, not only Ukraine, he got hundreds of thousands of dollars of money from Ukraine and the upfront payment and then with China he walks up with a billion and half dollars in fees. It’s ridiculous.
“They own Joe Biden,” he reiterated. “They own him and they want me to it lose so badly.”
Biden’s financial entanglements aside, if we keep heading down this lunatic path of “social justice” and all of its related madness, China is going to own us either way. They are sitting back and watching (and no doubt laughing) as we tear down our own history and replace it with woke narratives about how awful our country is. And they are certainly waiting anxiously to see how far we’ll go in destroying merit-based jobs and education for the sake of racial equity.
Putting a fool like Biden in the White House, though, will certainly expedite the process.
