“I’m not going to do it the way Trump did. We will focus more on international rules,” Biden told CBS about China policy. The President said: “We do not want a conflict, but there will be intense competition.”
Biden also said he has not spoken to President Xi since he was in office in late January. On the other hand, he said he knew Xi well because he spent more time with him during his deputy’s tenure than he did with any other foreign leader.
He has a very sharp and intelligent personality, and – I don’t intend to be critiquing this, it’s true – he lacks a democratic vein.
The American President said.
Relations between the United States and China have deteriorated dramatically during Donald Trump’s presidency. Trump has sewn an enormous amount of things around China’s neck over the past few years – like accusing them of unfair trade and launching the Coronavirus into the world.
Last week, Biden said he wanted to work more closely with China on international cooperation. “We will eradicate the abusive Chinese economic practices.” However, he also said that he is ready to work with China when necessary.
Although Biden has yet to agree with Hussey yet, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has already contacted his Chinese counterpart, Jang Jixi.
