(ThePatriotSource.Com)- The campaigns have barely kicked into gear for the 2020 presidential election, but it’s already getting heated. A pro-Trump super PAC released a new ad on Thursday that’s aimed squarely at presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
In the video, Biden is accused of being “soft on China,” an accusation that means a lot to the country right now while we deal with the effect of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. It’s particularly notable at a time when the U.S. government, and other world governments, are considering the very real possibility that the virus was released from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a bio lab not far from the wet markets where the virus is thought to have originated.
America First Action, the group behind the ad, will reportedly spend $10 million disseminating the advertisement as far and wide as possible. The purpose of the campaign is not just to expose Biden’s affinity towards China, but to test out the new nickname “Beijing Biden.” If it sticks, it could become a contender for President Trump’s established “Sleepy Joe” name.
“For 47 year the DC Elite has made one country great – Joe Biden has led the charge,” a voice can be heard saying on the video. The ad shows several clips of Biden praising China, saying that China’s growth is a “positive development” and specifically saying, “we’re not trying to slow down Chinese growth.”

Director of the American Majority organization, Matt Batzel, posted the clip on Twitter.
“New Ad hits #BeijingBiden for being soft on China- $2.7 ad buy in Wisconsin, part of $10 million blitz in 3 states through end of May,” he said.
A voice in the video can be heard accusing China of stealing manufacturing and hoarding emergency stockpile – two accusations that American voters can relate to. The spread of the Chinese coronavirus has exposed the fact that the United States isn’t ready to manufacture enough of its own essential medical supplies. Only through the Defense Production Act and companies stepping up and changing the kind of products they produce has the United States been capable of meeting the demand of hospitals.
Now more than ever, the president’s accusations that China is treating the United States unfairly will ring true to the American people. Let’s see if Biden can backtrack on this one!
