Biden foresees ‘extreme competition’ with China, not ‘conflict’

US President Joe Biden anticipates the country’s rivalry with China will take the form of “extreme competition” rather than conflict between the two world powers.

Biden says in a CBS interview that he has not spoken with Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping since he became president.

“He’s very tough. He doesn’t have — and I don’t mean it as a criticism, just the reality — he doesn’t have a democratic, small D, bone in his body,” Biden says.
