Though the former vice president said he will immediately reengage allies to combat China, the campaign said that any new trade deals would be considered only after investments in infrastructure and a coronavirus stimulus package.

It’s an approach that has buy-in from Democratic trade leaders in Congress, with Oregon Rep. Earl Blumenauer, head of the Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee, saying there’s no need to pretend a new trade deal will be “part of a 100-day agenda.”

But some analysts are skeptical of the hands-off attitude, saying allies will immediately demand a reversal of many Trump administration trade policies with the Biden win. And they note the president-elect has some far-reaching trade priorities of his own, like using new deals to fight climate change.
