Joe Biden is downplaying the economic threat posed to the United States by China for the second time in a matter of weeks.
He is either dangerously unconnected to world affairs, blindly naive, or advancing some other agenda.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Biden: ‘What Are We Worried About’ From Asian Countries?
Former vice president Joe Biden once again downplayed the economic threat posed by China during an event in Berlin, N.H. on Tuesday.
“We’re in a position where we have the most agile venture capitalists in the world. It’s not like they’re the bad guys,” he said. “We’re the best at doing it. Our workers are literally three times as productive as workers in the Far East, in Asia. They’re three times as productive. And so what are we worried about?”
Biden was similarly dismissive of China last month during an event in Iowa.
“China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man,” Biden said. “They’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what? They’re not competition for us.”
A paper published by the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy last June highlighted the threat China poses America and the global economy…

Biden has some serious questions to answer about his relationship to China.
Exclusive – Steve Hilton: Joe Biden ‘Has Taken Billions of Dollars in Bribes from the Chinese Government’
Former Vice President Joe Biden took “billions of dollars in bribes from the Chinese government,” Steve Hilton, host of Fox News Channel’s The Next Revolution, told hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak during an interview on Breitbart News Tonight on Tuesday.
On April 28, Hilton laid out details of financial dealings between Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s second son, and foreign governments, companies, and oligarchs.
The Biden family’s financial ties to the Chinese state will become a central election issue if the former vice president secures the Democrats’ presidential nomination for 2020, predicted Hilton.
“If [Joe Biden] is [nominated], it will be the central issue, actually, because there’s no question that the number one strategic priority for the next president will be keeping America ahead in the face of China’s implacable determination to topple the U.S.A. as the world’s superpower,” said Hilton.
Hilton continued, “That is not some scare story. That is what [Chinese officials] have said in their speeches and written in their books. It is very clearly stated. Their goal is to topple America and take back what they see as their rightful place as the world’s superpower, and they want to do it on their terms.”
Those are serious charges.
The media is not going to be able to ignore them.
