Biden: Trump Foreign Policy is 'Politics of Fear and Intolerance'

Vice President Joe Biden had some biting comments about presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump Monday afternoon. Biden was speaking at the Center for New American Security's annual conference in Washington, where he compared President Barack Obama's accomplishments since taking the oval office to the things Trump wants to do.

Biden says he was outraged by the terrorism policies Trump has proposed, such as temporarily banning Muslims from entering the country. He accused Trump of “wielding the politics of fear and intolerance.”

Like President Obama, Vice President Biden believes that Americans should not further alienate Muslims. He feels Trump will be pushing the world into more chaos. "Some of the rhetoric I’m hearing sounds designed to radicalize all 1.4 billion,” said Biden. “...Alienating 1.5 billion Muslims, the vast, vast majority of whom, at home and abroad, are peace-loving, it doesn’t make the situation better. It makes it worse. And it plays into the very narrative of the extremists.”

Trump has also proposed renegotiating deals with China. "Since China joined the WTO, Americans have witnessed the closure of more than 50,000 factories and the loss of tens of millions of jobs. It was not a good deal for America then and it’s a bad deal now," Trump says on his webpage DonaldJTrump.com.

Vice President Biden worked closely with Chinese President Xi Jinping during the last seven years. He's convinced his trade deal with China is in America's best interest.

The wall Trump plans to build to stop illegal immigration and contraband being smuggled across the Mexican border is also a step in the wrong direction, according to Biden, who feels a wall would 'disrespect our neighbors.'

When it comes to foreign policy, the two major parties couldn’t disagree more it seems. For the voter, it all seems to fall along party lines: do you feel President Obama’s administration has moved in the right direction, or do you think an ‘about face’ is warranted?
