The U.S.’s foreign relations with China has been a hotly debated subject in this year’s elections.

Joe Biden has been under fire for his comments on China going as far back as February when during the Democratic debates, he called China’s president a thug.

While some may have pointed out that when Biden was Vice President to the Obama Administration in 2011, he embraced China’s growth as a superpower saying, “great powers adhere to international norms in the areas of nonproliferation, human rights and trade.” 

Biden has addressed his critics stating that “The world has changed. Congress has changed.”

If elected, Biden will focus on restoring foreign relations saying that the best way to address the issues would be to “build a united front of U.S. allies and partners to confront China’s abuse behaviors and human rights violations

Most recently, in a letter written by Biden and published in World Journal on Oct. 22, Biden confirmed his new position.

“And our approach to China will focus on boosting American competitiveness, revitalizing our strengths at home, and renewing our alliances and leadership abroad. We’ll work to collaborate with China when it’s in our interest, including on public health and climate change,” Biden wrote.

Biden has spoken very strongly about his views on climate change, too.
As for his plans for public health, Biden addressed his plan in July in less than 280 characters on Twitter.
