China has three instructions for a possible incoming President Joe Biden: Obey Beijing, accept the communist country’s supposed economic superiority and remove any existing tariffs.
This was the message signaled to Biden in an op-ed published Sunday by the official propaganda mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the Global Times.
#Opinion: The anti-globalization and protectionist trends in the US are still powerful. Frictions between the US and its allies will also exist for a long time. Therefore, the restoration of US influence still faces many constraints. https://t.co/F61M8dNPvF pic.twitter.com/lKDfGkc2kz

China Wants ‘Incoming Biden Administration’ To Fall In Line
The piece states that the CCP wants a “partnership” with the Biden administration that is “categorically different” than the China-U.S. relationship under President Donald Trump.
“Biden is, irrevocably, the 46th US president,” the editorial insists. The Global Times also references the coronavirus pandemic and warns that “Demonizing China or slinging dirt on Chinese people will never help to stop the flare-up of infections and fatalities in America.”
“China’s experiences are impressive in curtailing the pandemic, and China’s unparalleled ability in manufacturing PPEs and producing vaccine vials and freezers should not be neglected and could be made use of by the Biden government,” the Global Times said.

The Communist Party outlet says that China’s economy is growing at a “sizzling pace” and if the U.S. wants to be included it must comply with Beijing, which begins with ending the “selfish” “America First” policies.
The Democrat Party is soft on #China – it’s no wonder the Chinese Communist Party is rooting for Biden to win. We need a president who will stand up & treat China as the threat that it is. That’s what @realDonaldTrump has done & will continue to do.https://t.co/WIU8Rx8Inh

China Warns That Failure To Obey Means It Will ‘Bite Back’
The op-ed says, “Economic confrontations with China chosen by Trump’s team failed to do the US, or any country in this world, any good.”
“The buying power of Chinese businesses and Chinese households should never be diminished or looked down upon,” it continues.
The Global Times warns China could “bite back.”
“Australia and Canada, the two hardcore allies of the US who are very unfriendly toward China, have received a bitter lesson from Beijing,” the op-ed read. “Don’t trample on Chinese people’s bottom lines, otherwise they will bite back.”

Would A President Joe Biden Put America First Or China?
The Global Times encouraged Biden to reconsider Trump’s policies.
“Now, a flurry of US multinational companies have vehemently opposed Trump’s so-called ‘economic decoupling’ attempt, as they know perfectly well they could not find another giant and growing market like China’s,” it read.
The op-ed continued, “So the incoming Biden administration needs to ponder its new policies, to reverse the course of the tumultuous policies of the past four years trumpeted by Trump.”
The message to Joe Biden from China is clear – you better do what we want or else.
Would a President Joe Biden bend to Bejing’s will or put America first? We probably already know enough to know the answer.
