China may surpass us in infrastructure - Mr. Joe Biden
President Joe Biden has warned that the country might lag behind China in infrastructure financing if they don't step up their game. He spoke during a chat with some house leaders that the US needs to urgently upgrade the infrastructure. He said this is only possible if more funds are released to help the ailing US economy.
This message comes after President Biden's first call with the Chinese leader. Mr. Xi Jinping. During the call, the Chinese president took a serious stand on human rights accusations leveled against the Chinese country. He said both nations don't need a war, because it will be bad for everyone. According to the president
'' If we remain stagnant and refuse to move along with times, the Chinese will take our lunch.''
'' China is investing serious money running into billions of dollars in sectors like transportation, environmental and technology, what are we doing .''
