Wang Yi, the Foreign Minister for China, celebrated Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election by saying it marked a “return to the right track.” Speaking to the board of the US-China Business Council (USCBC), the representative of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) revealed his goal of improving relations with the United States.
That goal would require the removal of barriers put in place to smooth dialogue. The hard-line stance of the Trump administration, for instance.
“The most urgent task currently is for the two sides to work together to remove all sorts of barriers to achieve a smooth transition in China-US relations,” said Yi, adding, “Based on the direction of mutual benefits for our two peoples and countries, we need to strive to restart dialogue, return to the right track and rebuild trust in this next phase of relations.”
Biden’s Relationship with China Just Got Really Complicated
Yi’s comments attempting to coax Biden back to the “right track” on behalf of the CCP comes as the president-elect’s son is embroiled in an ongoing investigation into his tax affairs. That probe, according to the Associated Press, includes an examination of the younger Biden’s business dealings with China.
“It isn’t clear which entities or business dealings might be tied up in the probe, though the person with knowledge of the matter said at least some of focus was on his past work in China,” they write. “Federal investigators served a round of subpoenas on Tuesday, including one for Hunter Biden, according to another person familiar with the investigation.”
Fox News reviewed a recent report from the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee that outlines “Hunter Biden’s past dealings with Chinese nationals – including some flagged for ‘potential financial criminal activity.’” “Hunter Biden had business associations with Ye Jianming, Gongwen Dong and other Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and the People’s Liberation Army,” the report says, according to Fox News.
It Might Be the Right Track For China, But It Won’t Be for America
In September, a documentary was released that argued that Hunter Biden and his business associates “started making investment deals that would serve the strategic interests of the Chinese military.”
The film alleged that Joe Biden’s son was only able to secure meetings with Chinese officials and ultimately score funding to the tune of $1 billion because his father was, at the time, the vice president, and President Barack Obama’s “point person on US policy towards China.”
While Biden was vice president, Hunter joined him on Air Force Two for a trip to China in 2013, according to an ABC News investigation. While in Beijing he arranged for his Chinese business partner to meet his father.
Ten days after the trip, Hunter’s firm received approval from the Chinese government-owned Bank of China that paved the way for more than a billion dollars in business for his firm.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo revealed Wednesday that the CCP views college campuses with anti-American views as easy targets to infiltrate to their benefit. “It’s important to come and talk with the American people about this because Americans must know how the Chinese Communist Party is poisoning the well of our higher education institutions for its own ends, and how those actions degrade our freedoms and American national security,” Pompeo warned during a speech at Georgia Tech. “If we don’t educate ourselves, if we’re not honest about what’s taking place, we’ll get schooled by Beijing.”
Is it any wonder Wang Yi thinks things are about to “return to the right track”?
The Biden’s will be in control of the White House, the Democrats will be in control of the House and possibly the Senate, and far-left anti-American zealots will continue to be in control of our college campuses.
It’s a great time to be Wang Yi and China.
