Former US vice president Joe Biden charged this Thursday against Donald Trump’s foreign policy and his “myopia” regarding his commercial pulse with China, and illustrated all this with a video in which the current president appears along with “authoritarian leaders” like Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un or Mohammad Bin Salman.
The video shows how Trump praises the top leaders of North Korea or Russia, while breaking international pacts such as the climate change in Paris or the nuclear agreement with Iran, “embarrassing” the United States with setbacks in different land.
In a campaign event in New York, Biden even described as “short-sighted” the current strategy of his country with China in the commercial field, whose costs are paying in his opinion the American farmers, and this despite the fact that the Democrat believes that the United States must curb the “abusive” economic behavior of China.
The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate – one of the best placed among the 25 candidates at the polls – criticized Trump for tariffs on Chinese products that provoked retaliation from Beijing and problems for American farmers.
However, he asked that the United States really “get tough on China,” adopting a more aggressive stance than Trump, who recalled that he minimized the threat posed by the Asian country earlier this year.
“President Trump may think he is being tough on China, and all he has done as a result is that American farmers, manufacturers and consumers lose and pay more,” Biden said in a speech describing his foreign policy plans in the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
“His economic decision is as short-sighted and myopic as the rest of his foreign policy,” concluded Biden, who was vice president to Barack Obama.
To express his position in graphic form, Biden published a video shortly before intervening in his act in New York in which he defines the “Trump doctrine” through his kind contacts with the presidents of Russia and North Korea or accompanied by the prince Saudi, Mohammad Bin Salman, suspected of being behind the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
In the video, Trump appears at a press conference in Helsinki with Putin apologizing for accusations of possible interference by Russia in the 2016 presidential election, won by the current US president.
He is alsoseen along with Kim Jon-un saying that he and the Korean leader “fell in love”, and then rejecting the participation of King Salman of Saudi Arabia in the assassination of columnist and Washington Post collaborator Jamal Khashoggi.
Biden’s video also expresses discrepancies with the withdrawal of the United States from the nuclear agreement with Iran and the Paris climate agreement.
