For those insisting that President Biden is in the back pocket of China’s President Xi, remember this is the same line that President Trump’s opponents used against him for his stated desire to form a collaborative friendship with Russia’s Putin. This line, against both, comes from the lying War Hawks of the Military Industrial Complex, to justify a bloated defense budget, to impose the “rules-based order” of global financial institutions. Will Biden submit to them, as the previous administration did by unleashing Pompeo in a frenzied push for regime change wars in 2020? A planned March 18 meeting between officials of the Biden and Xi governments may provide some answers. Join the Schiller Institute online conference on March 20-21 to get the full story on the direction of U.S.-China relations.
