Biden Flip-Flops Yet Again, Decides China is a Threat

Former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden said Tuesday in Iowa that China is “a real threat,” a position diametrically opposed to the stance he took on the entirety of Asia just one week ago.

“We are in a competition with China,” Biden said, according to prepared remarks published by CNN. “We need to get tough with China. They are a serious challenge to us, and in some areas a real threat.”

“Our workers are literally three times as productive as workers in the far east – excuse me, in Asia,” Biden said at a June 4 rally. “They’re three times as productive! And so, what are we worried about?”

Biden is facing criticism for another major flip-flop. Thursday, he renounced his previous support for the Hyde Amendment, which bars federal funds from being used to support abortion. Biden formerly supported that measure, but abruptly came out against it, bending a knee to the far left.

He has also faced criticism from several women for inappropriately touching them over the years, for which he was forced to apologize.

This week’s Democratic primary polls have Biden leading the field by a long shot. His lowest national polling numbers have him at +12, with his highest at +19.
