The Democratic Party's presidential nominee Joe Biden is "dangerous" when it comes to offshoring American jobs and because of his past relationship issues with China, and the United States needs a tough president like Donald Trump to stand up against the country's bullying behavior, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said Friday.
"The problem with Joe Biden is he has a record, 44-year record," Navarro said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "In 2001, he voted to allow China into the World Trade Organization. That created a tsunami of offshoring, where we lost over 70,000 factories and 5 million manufacturing jobs. This also happened on his watch when he was vice president."
Meanwhile, the Chinese Communist Party is trying to "bully this country into submission through threats on Huawei and medical supplies," Navarro said.
"What we learned from this pandemic is we need to bring home our supply chains and manufacturing, not just for our essential medicines or medical supplies like masks or medical equipment like ventilators but for everything," Navarro said. "China is bullying Australia right now for daring to question how that virus was created. Australia wants to do an investigation of China about where the virus came from. The next thing you know China is punishing Australia and New Zealand. It is a bully."
He also slammed Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, after she accused Trump of being the weak one on China, and said he can't take Harris seriously because of her own record.
"She put over 1,000 Black men in jeopardy or in jail for smoking pot and she would not go for the death penalty for a cop killer, so whenever I think of Kamala Harris that's all I need to know and she is just a mouthpiece," said Navarro. "She knows nothing about China policy ... she doesn't understand the history of Joe Biden in 2001 voting to put China into the World Trade Organization and then having them strip this country of our factories across the Midwest. Good luck for her going to Ohio, Wisconsin, or Michigan."
