One of Joe Biden’s many vulnerabilities is his extensive history and connections to China.
It hits especially hard now that we are in the midst of a pandemic and economic shutdown which is China’s fault.
The Trump campaign has wasted no time creating an ad to remind voters of this.
The Daily Wire has a transcript of the ad:
WRITING ON SCREEN: During America’s Crisis Biden Protected China’s Feelings.
DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE JOE BIDEN: “This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysterical xenophobia.”
WRITING ON SCREEN: Or Perhaps China’s Investment?
JOURNALIST: “Biden’s son inked a billion dollar deal with a subsidiary of the Bank of China.”
WRITING ON SCREEN: Biden Stands Up For China.
BIDEN: “China is going to eat our lunch? Come ‘on man. … They’re not bad folks, folks.”
WRITING ON SCREEN: While China Cripples America.
JOURNALIST: “Since the outbreak, the communist party has been mobilizing overseas organizations to buy local supplies and send them to China.”
BIDEN: “It is in our self-interest that China continue to prosper.
WRITING ON SCREEN: No. Just Biden’s interest.
BIDEN: “Banning all travel will not stop it.”
JOURNALIST: “The president is right, a travel restriction on China is, every public health we’ve talked to said it bought the country time.”
DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: “That was a very smart move right there.”
WRITING ON SCREEN: Biden Rejected.
BIDEN: “Hysterical xenophobia.” “Fear mongering.” “Xenophobia.”
WRITING ON SCREEN: Until He Forgot He Did.
BIDEN: “I complimented him on, uh, on dealing with China. … I’m not going nuts.”

The "I'm not going nuts" bit should be the end of every ad this cycle
