After slapping China with the Hong Kong Act, Donald Trump targeted Democratic Presidential candidate, Joe Biden calling his entire career a gift to the Chinese Communist Party.
Reporters gathered, Tuesday, at the Rose Garden for the scheduled news conference of the President to publicly discuss the administration’s action on China’s National Security Law in Hong Kong but the 63-minute speech turned into a campaign speech.
He drifted at random topics such as China and the coronavirus, the Paris climate change accord, the crumbling highways, the economy and energy taxes, and even his friendship with Mexico’s president. All these topics are misleading and suggest that his Democratic challenger is being soft to China and failed to accomplish certain things while being the Vice President.
Biden’s camp was quick to respond in a statement released by his campaign manager and communications director Kate Bedingfield, “What we heard in the Rose Garden today wasn't a president at all. It was a politician who sees his re-election slipping away from him and who is furious that his botched response to the coronavirus pandemic has denied him the campaign events he so craves.”
