- Donald Trump claimed that if Joe Biden wins the election, he will auction the US to China
- Earlier ex-president Barack Obama alleged that Trump had a secret account in a Chinese bank
- Trump and Biden will lock horns on November 3 during the presidential election; early voting is underway
President Donald Trump has cautioned Americans against a Joe Biden presidency and claimed that his (Biden) election will be tantamount to auctioning the US to China.
In a brief statement, Trump dismissed Biden as a corrupt leader who will close ranks with China's Communist Party and the East Asia country will "own the US".
Trump, who is seeking reelection on a Republican ticket, unleashed the onslaught on Biden, hours after ex-US president Barack Obama launched another scathing attack against him over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
"Joe Biden is a corrupt politician. He wants to send your jobs to China, while his family rakes in millions from the Chinese Communist Party. If Biden wins, China will own the USA. When we win, you win, Wisconsin wins, and America wins!"
Both Trump and Obama have recently been dragging the name of China in their campaigns ahead of the November 3 presidential election.
During his Tuesday, October 27, speech in Orlando, Obama tore in Trump by claiming the head of state was having a secret account in a Chinese bank.
Obama said as Biden supporters honked car horns in approval:
"We know he has a secret account with a Chinese bank. Can you imagine that? He is taking our money and taxes to China. Trump has only paid USD$750 in taxes. Social workers pay more than that."
The US head of state accused China of not containing the COVID-19 pandemic at source and allowing it to spread to the rest of the world. Coronavirus was first reported in the city of Wuhan in China in late 2019.
During the early stage of the pandemic, Trump stated that he was in good terms with China and was working hand in hand with President Xi Jinping to stymie the disease.
After the scourge spiralled out of control, Trump changed tune and said the "pandemic was China's fault and they (China) will pay for it".
He later accused the WHO of working with China to hide important information about the disease.
