Elizabeth Warren prescribes multilateralism and better economic policies to counter China’s authoritarianism.
As a senator, she’s signed her name to numerous letters calling out China’s human rights violations and attempts to curtail criticism in U.S. media and academia. But as a candidate, she rarely talks about China.
“Elizabeth favors a strategy of engagement with China where our interests align, including on critical security issues like climate change and counter-proliferation,” a Warren campaign spokesperson told Axios in a statement. “But she will not hesitate to push back in areas where we disagree, including China’s growing human rights abuses, unfair economic practices that harm American workers, and efforts to undermine global norms.”
