Nigel Farage speaks out on US election and warns of terrifying Joe Biden sellout to China

The Democrat Presidential nominee has been under constant attack by his rival Donald Trump on the campaign trail and has been accused of being too soft on the global superpower. Now, Mr Farage, a close ally of the US President, has also cast serious doubt over Mr Biden’s position on China in a post on social media. Ahead of the vote on November 3, Mr Biden wrote on Twitter: “In 8 days, we’re going to take our democracy back.”

In response, Mr Farage simply wrote: “And then sell it to China.”

During the past three-and-a-half years, Mr Trump has taken tough action on Beijing, including sanctions on billions of pounds of Chinese goods and well as a travel ban amid the coronavirus outbreak.

At a rally, Mr Trump hit out at the former Vice-President and accused Mr Biden of supporting trade policies which led to the loss of American jobs to the Far East.

Speaking at a rally in North Carolina last month, Mr Trump said: “Biden is a globalist sellout who spent his career laying waste to American communities.”

He added: “Joe Biden’s agenda is made in China. My agenda is made in the USA.”

China was again high on the agenda at the final Presidential debate, and Mr Biden defended his record and insisted he would take a firm stance against China.

Mr Biden, who served as vice-President to Barack Obama, pledged to work with allies to pressure Beijing in any future economic dispute.

Speaking at the debate last Thursday, Mr Biden said: “We need to be having the rest of our friends with us, saying to China: ‘We play by the rules. You play by them or you are going to pay the price for not playing by them, economically’.”

In an earlier post on Twitter, Mr Farage who appeared at Mr Trump’s election rallies in the 2016 race for the White House, also took aim at Mr Biden for an unfortunate gaffe over the weekend.

On Sunday, Mr Biden, 77, was speaking to supporters at a virtual concert and referred to the US President as “George”.

Reacting the news, Mr Farage wrote: “Biden is laughably unfit to be the President”

During the rally, Mr Biden appeared to confuse Mr Trump with former US President George W Bush.

“I don’t know if I like George. What a mess. He called me George.”

He added he did not know whether he “should be insulted or happy about it”.

With just eight days to go until election day, 60.5 million voters have already cast their ballot papers – 13 million more than at this stage in 2016.
