China broke deal with US, dreaming Joe Biden will win: Donald Trump

China broke deal with US, dreaming Joe Biden will win: Donald Trump

Ducklo said since he's called for nationwide, Biden has given a $15-an-hour minimum wage.

President Trump believes China is desperate for a Joe Biden presidency. A number of top Democratic candidates, including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O'Rourke and Tulsi Gabbard, have pledged to not to take any campaign cash from fossil fuel interests, and any candidate who does is sure to hear about it on the debate stage and campaign trail.

That was the gist of a slew of reactions Friday after Reuters reported that the climate change policy now being drafted by Joe Biden's 2020 campaign is "a middle ground approach" that backs some fossil fuel options and curtails a more ambitious path to address the crisis.

Nearly universally, Democratic presidential candidates praise the power of unions as a force for positive change on the campaign trail.

Biden, who announced his candidacy April 25, was seen in the poll as the "toughest and most likable candidate with the highest name recognition and the largest favorability", the newspaper said.

Biden, the former vice president who leads Sanders in virtually every poll of candidates seeking the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, has yet to comment on the Green New Deal touted by the Vermont senator and by progressive Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Echoing Sanders and the chorus of green groups voicing their concerns, Greenpeace USA climate campaigner Charlie Jiang said in a statement, "There is no such thing as a middle ground on climate change". Ducklo provided no details about Biden staffers' premiums but said they are competitive within the effort industry.

And if one of the guiding principles of your climate plan is that it will appeal to blue-collar whites who voted for Trump, that's going to dictate both the general approach and the specifics that are included.

Earlier on Sunday, Trump tweeted: 'We are right where we want to be with China.

"So unionizing campaign staff allows us to not only create a more sustainable future for campaign workers, but it also allows workers to have a workplace where they are able to have a say in their own working conditions".

Many Republicans in Congress have mocked the Green New Deal.

In contrast, then-Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton saw her support dip after she said her aggressive clean energy agenda would "put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business", underscoring the impact environmental policy can have on an election.

Zichal said she is gathering policy advice on Biden's behalf from experts including former Obama Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and Frank Verrastro, head of the energy and national security program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

The GND, perhaps alongside the severe hurricanes and wildfires that have rattled Americans over the past two years, has helped elevate the issue of climate change to a leading priority for Democratic voters.

Biden is now the front-runner in the Democratic race, drawing 46 percent of potential primary support compared with the next highest, Sen. The Green New Deal is built to exist beyond this election season.
