President Trump criticizes democrat party officials for their soft stance on China.
The President took to Twitter on Sunday saying Beijing would embrace the election of Joe Biden as president in the 2020 General Elections.
China is DREAMING that Sleepy Joe Biden, or any of the others, gets elected in 2020. They LOVE ripping off America!

He also suggested Biden, or any other democrat candidate, would allow China to continue running trade surpluses with the United States and steal American intellectual property.
His remarks follow Biden’s defense of China amid the ongoing trade dispute. Referencing China, Biden said “they’re not bad folks,” adding the nation is “not a competition” for us, being the United States.
President Trump says officials in Beijing “LOVE ripping off” America and democrats could help them do just that.
