Democratic politician Joe Biden served as the 47th vice-president of the United States under Barack Obama from 2009 to 2017, and was a United States Senator for Delaware from 1973 to 2009. In 2020, he

became the Democratic nominee to challenge Donald Trump for the position of US president.

Trump and Biden both vow to reduce reliance on China, but methods will be ‘night and day’
In his Mexico City office, while the coronavirus pandemic has raged, Samuel Campos’s phone has been ringing off the hook with firms looking to move their manufacturing to Mexico. “Since the trade deal this year, I think our volume is up around 30% to 40%,” said Campos, managing director at commercial real estate advisory firm Newmark Knight Frank, pointing to the revamped US-Mexico-Canada Agreement that went into effect in July. The callers used to be mainly European and American, looking to escape China to avoid trade war tariffs or to be closer to their consumer markets. But in recent months, Chinese firms have been calling too – all keen on managing the costs and volatility that come with
Joe Biden vows to end US reliance on Chinese medical equipment
American Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Thursday vowed to end the United States’ reliance on China and other countries for medical equipment should he be elected. The outcome of the November election could alter the future of US-China relations, which have deteriorated under the Trump administration, although analysts say Washington’s skepticism of Beijing will likely continue under a Biden presidency. Biden also accused President Donald Trump of failing to acknowledge the gravity of the coronavirus pandemic and putting his own interests before those of the American people. Addressing the Democratic Party convention to formally accept his nomination, Biden accused Trump of “coz
Don’t expect US-China relations to improve under a President Biden
As the US heads toward its November elections, Republicans and Democrats are pitching two distinct visions of America. Except when it comes to China. The proposed 90-page Democratic Party platform contains passages that echo some of the rhetoric that has defined the attacks on China made by President Donald Trump’s administration even as it criticizes the “reckless” trade war it started with China more than two years ago. The Democratic platform, crafted as a statement of the agenda of the party and its presidential nominee, Joe Biden, “lambasts the Trump administration’s handling of China in all issue arenas: trade, human rights, national security, public health and so on,” said Allen Carls
Trump and Biden talk tough on China. Can they afford to walk the walk?
US presidential candidates are trying to win support by advocating for a hawkish stance toward Beijing, but they may need to think twice about the anti-China rhetoric due to the need to restore an economy devastated by the coronavirus pandemic.  As President Donald Trump and his presumptive Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, compete to portray themselves as being the toughest on Beijing, the only factor that will prevent a complete diplomatic severance, former government officials and experts said, will be the economy. US media reported on Thursday that the Trump administration was pursuing conspiracy theories about the coronavirus’ origins, and was formulating a raft of measures to hold Chin
Biden says China is not going to ‘eat our lunch.’ Other candidates beg to differ
Joe Biden, a front-runner in the Democratic race for US presidential nomination, has come under bipartisan ridicule for playing down the notion that China is a rising economic and geopolitical threat to America. “China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man,” Biden said during a campaign stop in Iowa City, Iowa on Wednesday. “They are not competition for us.” Biden’s view on China pits him against lawmakers and other presidential candidates who are wary of Beijing’s expanding global influence. Since the China trade deal I voted against, America has lost over 3 million manufacturing jobs. It’s wrong to pretend that China isn’t one of our major economic competitors. When we are in the White H
