On Sunday, President Trump took to social media to slam Democrat 2020 opponent Joe Biden, suggesting China is hopeful that a Democrat win the upcoming election.
“China is DREAMING that Sleepy Joe Biden, or any of the others, gets elected in 2020,” said Trump, adding, “They LOVE ripping off America!”

Trump has previously indicated similar sentiments, speculating that China sought to renegotiate a trade deal hoping to negotiate with Biden or another Democrat.
After having recently announced his intention to seek the White House in 2020, Biden drew criticism from Trump for his remarks on China, who he said is “not competition for us.”
