Trump Says China is ‘Dreaming’ of a Biden Presidency as They Retaliate with New Tariffs

President Trump tweeted Sunday evening his belief that China’s leaders are “dreaming” of a Joe Biden presidency just hours before the country announced retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods.

“China is DREAMING that Sleepy Joe Biden, or any of the others, gets elected in 2020. They LOVE ripping off America!” Trump tweeted.

By Monday morning, the country announced it will raise tariffs on U.S. goods starting on June 1. The news comes just days after Trump increased U.S. duties on $200 billion of Chinese imports. According to Bloomberg, China’s tariffs will be tiered, with the highest tariff of 25 percent being imposed on 2,493 items, 20 percent on 1,078 items, 10 percent on 974 items, and 5 percent on 595 items.

In total, the new Chinese tariffs will cover about $60 billion in U.S. goods.

Earlier this month, Biden said that he believed that China is “not competition” for the U.S. That statement is largely out of step with not just the Trump administration’s view, but also that of many Democrats in Washington.
