Former President Donald Trump said President Joe Biden’s administration is soft on China because the Chinese own his successor.
“Why is the Biden Administration so SOFT on China?” Trump wrote. “… CHINA OWNS BIDEN, and now, the USA!”
Trump added that the billions his administration took from China in the form of tariffs are now being given back.
Trump made the claims on his Truth social media page after Newsweek’s Deputy Opinion Editor said the democrat’s problem is that they are soft on china from a domestic policy, jobs, economy, and trade points of view.
This is not the first time Trump has made similar claims about Biden. During the 2020 presidential election campaign, Trump told Fox Business’s Stuart Varney that if Biden wins the election, China will own the U.S.
“If Biden wins, China will own the United States,” Trump said. “You know that, I turned that all around.”
Trump’s latest claims amid a New York Post report that revealed that Biden’s Department of Justice is trying to hide “potentially responsive” documents about gifts first son Hunter Biden and his uncle James Biden received from foreign actors in China, Russia, and Ukraine.
It’s very simple, Biden is owned by China. https://t.co/IxATIiwDMW

Kevin Evans, A Colorado lawyer, sued the DOJ in March 2022 after the agency failed to comply with his Freedom of Information Act request for records about Hunter and James Biden.
Evans revealed that lawyers for the federal government are now saying they can’t confirm or deny if 400 pages of “potentially responsive” documents existed despite admitting in court that they have the records.
“They eventually produced about 60 pages of documents, but they’re all letters from senators and congressmen asking about Hunter, and letters from DOJ back,” Evans said.
Evans added that the government will do whatever it takes to keep the information hidden.
“I’m quite confident that they will move for summary judgment on the privacy exemptions under FOIA in an effort to avoid having to produce these documents,” Evans added.
