China won't overtake USA on my watch, says Biden

Joe Biden

President Joe Biden mentioned him early and often. And he mentioned him on a range of issues, from immigration to human rights to Afghanistan. Biden said that his administration is in negotiations with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on the matter.

Mr Biden has said he would work with USA allies to hold China accountable for its actions on Taiwan, Hong Kong, the South China Sea, and its treatment of the Uighur minority in Xinjiang region, as well as push Beijing to stick to worldwide rules for fair trade. This was the stance that Vice President Kamala Harris took during her bid for the presidency in the 2020 election cycle.

This is a phantom administration: a laid-back and thoroughly unprepossessing president, a sharply divided governing party, a completely infeasible legislative program, and still no organizing principle except orchestrated thanksgiving that Mr. Trump is gone. Illegal immigration was not a problem anymore.

During the President's press conference last week, he stated that the new surge of immigrants looking to cross the border is the result of the previous administration's efforts, or lack thereof.

Trump called Biden's undoing of the "Remain in Mexico" policy, or the Migrant Protection Protocol, a "very bad decision".

"All we have to do is go back to what we were doing before". "It's going to take time".

President Joe Biden has said he would prevent China from overtaking the U.S. to become the most powerful country in the world, vowing to invest heavily to ensure America prevails in the rivalry between the world's two largest economies. "I'm not gonna do it".

The Biden Administration cannot possibly have more than a few more weeks to announce that it has fulfilled its humanitarian promises, and can substantially reseal the border, having reformed the xenophobic and racist bigotry and cruelty of the Trump Administration (which is, in fact, the only administration that has enforced a sane immigration policy in over 30 years).

Pfizer, BioNTech begin Covid vaccine trial in children under 12
The government directed everyone above 45 years to take the first jab of the COVID vaccine without hesitation. Most studies just look at people's antibody response, but this research also measured participants' T-cells.

Biden also blamed Trump for getting rid of a $700 million foreign aid program that would have prevented the migration surge by strengthening the economies of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.

I asked Sen. Linsey Graham, D-S.C., if he believes that mother and child I just met should be sent back. We have a great president of Mexico who was great to me'. Let me make it very clear. "And so I make no apologies for that".

'I love President Biden as a person. "Number one, we wanted to thank the Border Patrol for the job they do every day and every night".

Yet on Thursday, Biden seemed eager to discuss his predecessor.

Marisela Ramirez, who was returned to Reynosa about 4 a.m. Thursday, brought her 14-year-old son and left five other children - one only 8 months old - in Guatemala because she couldn't afford to pay smugglers more money.

Biden also referred to Trump - without actually mentioning his name - near the end of a long answer on China, when he turned to human rights. After the news conference, CNN's Jake Tapper said that Biden's stance was "not really in keeping with the transparency that he promised the American people".

Sister Norma Pimentel, who opened the shelter during the 2014 migrant surge, said she has seen between 200 and 500 migrants traveling as families on any given day.

He added that the current administration has the "Remain in Mexico" policy to be reinserted, as drug traffickers and other criminals enter or pass the border with migrants, he said. Asked if he expected to run against Trump in 2024, Biden seemed to grow frustrated. "I don't even think about - I don't - I have no idea".

"A lot of people want me to".
