Why won’t Joe talk about China?

You’d never know from former Vice President Joe Biden’s acceptance speech last night that, if elected, his single most important foreign policy, national security, economic and public health problem would be the Chinese Communist Party. Evidently, he’d rather not talk about it.

But voters are entitled to know what would Joe Biden do about the existential threat to freedom posed by the CCP of which its virus is just one, albeit devasting example? Does he even see Communist China as a threat – let history’s greatest one? Or, is he still in the “C’mon, man!” mode, downplaying – if not actually dismissing – the mortal danger we face from the PRC.

Donald Trump is, as he should be, going to make his yuuuge differences with Joe Biden on China a centerpiece of the 2020 campaign now getting underway in earnest.

Bring it on.

This is Frank Gaffney.
