Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., says a relationship with China under a Biden-Harris administration would be “an utter disaster.”

“I think it would be a disaster under Biden. He is an accommodator. He’ll talk tough, maybe privately, but for eight years, we had a feckless policy of enabling,” Smith, the ranking member of the congressional executive commission on China, said Thursday during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “Spicer & Co.”.

“Human rights was nowhere to be found, except in a mention on talking points, but there was no real connection with policy. Remember it was Bill Clinton who de-linked most favored nation status, which gives them good training opportunities for an exporting economy, with human rights. That’s after he famously linked it … one year later on a Friday afternoon after a newd cycle was pretty much over, he de-links, and that’s when they looked at us and said, ‘The only thing these guys care about in America is money.’ Now I believe in capitalism, I believe in profits, but it has to be principled.”

  1. There was a really good idea that would have reigned in China: The Trans-Pacific Partnership. It was designed to be a multilateral trade framework that froze China out of decision-making.

    But Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump demagogued against it and it failed. Only Barack Obama and Joe Biden stood by it. And now, sadly, thanks to the continued demagoguery of Trump and Sanders, Biden has stopped talking about it. And Congressman Smith never did support it.

    We get the leadership we deserve. We must destroy the nutty far right and the nutty far left.
