There’s a BeijingBiden website, but Trump seems to have decided not to use this insult in speeches, leaving that meme to surrogates and media bottom-feeders.
The meme was important to the Trump campaign in April, but since China “prefers” Biden, no amount of “China Virus” can offset Americans’ awareness of an impending and avoidable quarter-million death toll due to Trump’s incompetence.
Trump thinks he can get better campaign mileage from ratcheting up white hatred and attacking the 1619 Project, as if the “radical left” Democrats among whose number are BLM supporters, were more dangerous in frightening white people than the image of Joe Biden kowtowing to China. Even with the rise in Asian-American hate incidents, Trump is betting on fear of Blacks and Latinx, simply on their larger numbers, especially in the more crucial swing-states.
(Trump’s) surprise that Black people would flock to the U.S. Open tennis tournament to watch the Williams sisters play. He had no clue that African Americans were interested in the sport.

Don Junior brought “Beijing-Biden” back in August but it has yet to return with 55 days remaining, his father fixated on “China Virus”. It never appeared during the RNC.
Trump Jr. has the highest-profile of the president’s children in his re-election campaign. He’s a top surrogate, fundraiser and messenger through social media, conservative broadcasts and the campaign’s digital shows.
On his Instagram account, Trump Jr. refers to himself as a “General in the Meme Wars.”
His high level of involvement is a change from 2016. In that campaign, he is most known for having set up the Trump Tower meeting between campaign officials and a Russian lawyer that was looked into as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the election.
Monday, Trump Jr. put the spotlight on China, saying the Chinese Communist Party wants “Beijing Biden” to win because he won’t be as tough on them as Trump is. He also blamed the disruption of economy on the coronavirus – which arrived “courtesy of the Chinese Communist Party.”
55 Days at Peking is a 1963 American epic historical war film dramatizing siege of the foreign legations' compounds in Peking (now known as Beijing) during the Boxer Rebellion, which took place in China from 1898 to 1900.[R]ousing, sometimes exciting, action fare that should keep the customers alert and entertained even if their intellects are confused. The fact of the matter is that the principals and the multitudinous extras involved have no more depth than Occidental and Oriental figures on a Chinese tapestry. And their actions—at least the reasons behind the actions of the principals — are rarely explored fully. Without authentic historic background, a viewer gets a foggy picture, if any, of the real causes of the Boxer Rebellion.
