Joe Biden Calls Russia An “Opponent” But Says China Is Just A Competitor


During a downhall last night presidential candidate, former vice-president Biden said that Russian is an “opponent” and China is a “competitor.” Biden was responding to a question from CNN moderator Andersen Cooper who asked whether Russia is an enemy. Biden responded, “I believe Russia is an opponent, I really do.”

Cooper then asked about China, stating that the President has said that you (Biden) are too soft on China. Biden responded that he views “China as a competitor, a serious competitor. That’s why I think we have to strengthen our relationships and our alliances in Asia. …”

Reaction on social media was either flat – from the left – or not so kind – from the right, with many describing him as a “pro-China candidate.”

In a tweet, Breitbart News dubbed him “China Joe.” In a separate tweet, they said “Why is Joe Biden so soft and friendly toward Communist China? Just ask Hunter Biden and Rosemont Seneca.”
