Joe Biden: China not economic threat to U.S. – “They’re not bad folks!”

(2 May 2019) Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden downplayed the economic threat posed by China during a campaign stop in Iowa on Tuesday.
He scoffed at the idea that China could overtake the U.S. as a world leader, telling a crowd in Iowa City, “China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man.”
Biden’s comments come as U.S. and Chinese negotiators hold more talks aimed at ending a bruising tariff war.
Washington wants Beijing to roll back industry development plans it says are based in part on stolen technology and that violate its market-opening commitments.
