Americans don’t trust Biden on what stance the country should take concerning China’s Communist regime, which is increasingly positioning itself as an open enemy of the United States.
A new Rassmusen poll shows that this is the view of American voters. The figures show that 50 percent of likely American voters say the current Democratic President’s China policy is worse than Trump’s policy. A slight thirty-one percent (31%) say Biden’s China policy is better than that of the former Republican President, while a tiny 11% rate China policy about the same between the two administrations.
These results make it clear that Joe Biden’s approach to China has not resonated well with the American public and is out of touch with what citizens want done.
What had Biden said about his China policy?
Three weeks into his Administration, the Democratic President commented that his administration was ready for “extreme competition” with China, but that his approach would be different from that of his predecessor.
Biden told CNBC that his position vis-à-vis Beijing would be different. “I’m not going to do it the way Trump did it. We’re going to focus on international transit rules,” he commented. He elaborated on his stance by saying that in his government they are also “willing to work with Beijing when it is in the U.S. interest to do so.” He asserted that America would compete from a position of strength by building back better at home and working with the country’s allies and partners.
He added that he would confront the economic abuses of Xi Jinping’s regime; furthermore, he described China as America’s “most serious competitor.”
For some time now, American citizens have been increasingly alienated from the Beijing regime. Fox News polls last year showed that 36% of Americans thought China was America’s “worst enemy”; 18% considered Russia and 16% North Korea as the biggest enemies.
Peace with China?
However, Biden’s diplomacy brings many inconsistencies to the table. Among the biggest is the double standard he applies to China and Syria.
On the one hand, Biden moderates his tone greatly and is passive with Xi Jinping’s Communist regime, which has infiltrated the world’s largest companies (many of which operate on American soil), sends its spies to harass Chinese exiles in the U.S., steal American intellectual property, and are increasingly hostile to the American nation.
On the other hand, Biden did not miss the first year to bomb countries in the Middle East.
El American recently reported that the U.S. Army launched airstrikes Thursday against facilities in eastern Syria used by Iranian-backed militias.
Biden ordered the attack at the Pentagon and the Pentagon Press Secretary stated that “at the direction of President Biden, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure used by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria.”
Kirby added that the bombings send a clear message that President Biden will act to protect Americans and allied personnel. He added that deliberate action was taken with the ultimate goal of de-escalating the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq.
Senator Marco Rubio of Florida also supported Biden’s attack in Syria calling it “proportional and necessary.”
