If you are not somewhat afraid of a Biden/Harris administration you are not a conservative. If Biden and that other person get the WH in January the world as we know it will change dramatically. Now, ‘The US is entering the Joe Biden era as the formal transition process began after being authorized by the General Service Administration, and after Biden nominating top foreign policy and national security officials.
Chinese experts said China could start contacting Biden’s team and restore bilateral communication channels. A good start would be cooperation on climate change and discussion on reducing tariff barriers.
Analysts said the Biden administration with familiar faces to China will bring a more professional, rational and pragmatic approach to the future China-US ties than the Trump administration.
Although the Biden administration may not consider China a complete enemy, Chinese analysts warned that a change in US president will not change the US view of China as its strategic competitor, and the Biden administration may seek alliances to contain China’s influence in Europe, Asia and the South China Sea.
Biden’s top foreign policy and national security picks include Alejandro Mayorkas to lead the Department of Homeland Security, Antony Blinken as the next secretary of state, Linda Thomas-Greenfield as US ambassador to the United Nations, and Jake Sullivan as national security adviser, CNN reported.
Biden’s cabinet picks are likely to take a more rational and pragmatic approach toward China, given their past experience in handling foreign affairs, Chinese observers noted. Despite the changing geopolitical environment, these veteran US officials are expected to return to conventional Democratic approaches to foreign affairs, which will be much more predictable, some observers said.
Blinken and Sullivan are more concerned about alliance than about the China policy, seeing alliance as a foreign policy priority for the next four years. They tend to see China as a “strategic competitor” rather than an “all-out enemy,” Da Wei, director of the Center for Strategic and International Security Studies of the University of International Relations in Beijing, told the Global Times on Tuesday.’https://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1207932.shtml
A Biden admin will be a rehash of the Obumer years.
