As president, Joe Biden will not immediately remove the 25 percent of the billion-dollar tariffs that Trump imposed China's exports to the U.S.
U.S. President-elect Joe Biden assured that he will not change current relations with China, for now, so he will maintain the tariffs that former President Donald Trump imposed against the Asian country.
Journalist Thomas L. Friedman revealed the information after Biden offered him statements about what the U.S. international policy will be under his mandate.
"I would not act immediately to remove the 25 percent tariffs that Trump imposed on about half of China's exports to the U.S.," Biden explained in the interview, which was published in the New York Times on Tuesday.
The Democratic leader added that before deciding to reverse the tensions, first he plans to full review the U.S.-China agreement and consult with U.S. allies in Asia and Europe about the best policy to pursue.
