Biden's America: Taking Trump's Lead on China

Post by Fat Cat »

The United States and its allies in Canada, Britain and the European Union on Monday announced sanctions on several Chinese officials alleged to have links to what U.S. officials say is a genocidal campaign against Uyghur Muslims.

The international, coordinated sanctions, first reported by POLITICO, drew condemnation and some immediate retaliatory sanctions from Beijing. The moves offered a glimpse into the growing divide between China and the United States and its trans-Atlantic allies, which, like Washington, are increasingly wary of China’s global ambitions and internal repression.

Credit where credit is due, this was the right thing to do. Apparently, the Biden administration is tacitly admitting that confronting China is now a matter of pressing national security.

It’s not tacit.
Don’t believe everything you think.

They claimed it was racist throughout 2020 and claimed that they were going to reset relations with China. Now, not so much. Even NPR says Joe's all over the place:

Regardless, it IS the right thing to do.
