In an interview broadcast on Sunday, US President Joe Biden said that the rivalry between the United States and China would take the form of “extreme competition”, while stressing that he wanted to avoid any “conflict” between the two largest economic powers.
Biden clarified that he had not yet spoken to his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, noting that there was “no reason not to contact him,” but added, according to excerpts from the interview shown by CBS, “It (X) is very cruel, and there is no iota of democracy in his person. And I do not say this out of criticism, it is only the truth, “according to the French news agency.
And the US Treasury announced today, Sunday, that President Joe Biden is ready to work with Congress on the stimulus package.
Biden also confirmed that he would move “quickly” to pass his huge package to save the economy in Congress, even if this was done without obtaining Republican support, noting that many Americans are approaching the “breaking point.”
Biden said in a speech at the White House Friday: “I see tremendous pain in this country, many people without work, and many people are hungry.”
