President Joe Biden’s cozy approach to China, combined with his family’s financial dealings there, has one Republican Senate candidate speaking out.
During Thursday’s episode of Breitbart News Daily, Ohio senatorial hopeful Josh Mandel argued that Biden is “personally” and “financially corrupted” by his family’s business ties to China, making it no surprise that he hasn’t taken the tough approach on the communist regime made popular by his predecessor in the White House.
According to Breitbart, the podcast episode was hosted by Jerome Hudson.
Corrupted by China
Speaking Thursday, Mandel suggested that Biden can’t be expected to act in America’s best interests with regard to China, given his track record.
“Let’s start with the fact that Biden is personally [and] financially corrupted,” Mandel said, according to Breitbart. “He is, his son Hunter, probably his brother, the lobbyist — their finances are so intertwined and dependent on the Chinese Communist Party that he’s completely, completely conflicted.”
Mandel added: “So let’s start out with that, that he’s not in any position to make the right decisions for the American people.”
The Senate candidate then turned his attention to President Biden’s policy agenda, particularly as it relates to climate change.
He noted that the president has essentially hamstrung American domestic energy production, while rivals like China continue to make full use of fossil fuel resources.
Biden’s administration is “enabling oil and gas pipelines in Russia and leaning on OPEC while we’re sitting here in Ohio, in America, with an abundance of natural resources that he won’t let us drill and move,” Mandel lamented, according to Breitbart.
The Republican also had sharp words for Biden over the damage his policies are inflicting on the American economy. Breitbart reported:
[Mandel] said Biden’s policies were “quadrupling inflation,” “increasing prices at the pump and the grocery stores,” and “paying people to stay home and drink Mountain Dew and play Xbox with our tax money instead of actually getting people back to work.”
The big picture
Of course, none of these concerns amount to anything new. Biden and his family have long been under a microscope when it comes to their foreign business dealings, and that was true even before he ascended to the White House.
But will the president ever face accountability? I wouldn’t hold my breath.
