What's even more scary, is that Russia and China who now have joined forces because of democrat opposition to Trump, we now may be facing a war against Taiwan and a war against Ukraine.
Another fact based video you can ignore, in this case, about China:

No one is afraid of Biden.

That could be a mistake. You'll find someone that knows this from personal experience residing in Palm Beach, Florida now.

Well let's see.  The Arab oil moguls aren't afraid.  The Taliban aren't afraid.  The Iranians building nukes aren't afraid.  The Mexican gangsters aren't afraid.  The Illegals south-of-the-border aren't afraid.  The Russians and Chinese aren't afraid.  Republicans running for Congress aren't afraid.  Let's see.  Who did I miss?

Cute but when were any of those ever afraid.

Or are you trying to convince us that Trump was a tough guy to whom everyone listened when he spoke. Are you making some kind of joke? The clown was barely coherent and a laughing stock.

Who cares about Trump or what he thinks?  He's got no power and is no threat to the US.  It's China, Russia, and those others we should be concerned about who see Biden as weak.  Frankly, I hope he stays healthy because his VP would be worse.

Just a threat to US democracy.
That's why some DO care even though you don't while speaking for everyone else.

He was a laughing stock to the left and anti Trumpers and Democrats.  Our adversaries however took him seriously.  He destroyed ISIS and killed its leader.  The Syrians paid attention when he bombed their airfield.  He stood up to China when no previous president did.  He moved the American embassy to Jerusalem thumbing his nose at the Palestinians and other liberals.  His backing of Israel helped push a few Arab nations to have diplomatic relations with Israel.  He forced NATO allies to pay up more.  Of course, they complained and tried to lessen his power by laughing at him.  But he got the last laugh when they paid up including higher tariffs.  With Trump, you never knew for sure what he was going to do.  He kept people waiting and off-balance wondering what he might do. 

Who respects Biden.  No one, unfortunately.  That's making the world more dangerous as our adversaries will test him further, I believe in Eastern Europe and Taiwan and other areas in the Pacific.  His fiasco in Afghanistan showed him as afraid and incompetent.  Who thinks he will defend anyone now? Nature abhors a vacuum.

You wish. He was but a buffoon.

His isolationist, mercurial temperament caused concern, not fear, as to who would really have their finger on the nuke button and what safe guards were in place - an issue that was addressed within days of his winning the 2016 election.

No-one, but no-one fears a CIC with bone spurs.

Trump kept us out of wars and ended some. The attacks on Trump were political and started with the "Russian collusion" nonsense even before he was elected.  Speaking of bone spurs, Clinton also never served during Vietnam.  He got an education deferment first and sneakily got ou of the draft using the ROTC.  See this article.
https://edition.cnn.com/ALLPOLITICS/1996/candidates/democrat/clinton/skeletons/draft.shtml 

Obama never served and the Chinese weren't afraid of him making military bases out of those islands in the South China Sea.  ISIS was formed under Obama due to his stupidity of pulling out of Iraq in 2011 and it required Trump to take back territory ISIS conquered. 

Meanwhile, Biden gave back Afghanistan to the Taliban and terrorists, the Russian have 100,000 troops on the Ukrainian border and China is buzzing Taiwan constantly.  They just stopped identifying all their commercial ships electronically so no one knows where they are.  I have a suspicion they're doing this because they'll use commercial carriers to ferry Chinese troops and arms against Taiwan when they attack it.

News flash: Afghanistan wasn't one of them he ended.
It did a piss poor job of keeping us out of this civil war against Covid-19.
On Nov. 5, the official domestic coronavirus death toll surpassed that of the Civil War — more than 778,000.
You know how many were on his watch? President Trump owns it. It was his plan, it was his decision. He was warned by his medical advisors and ignored them; sound like a familiar post*?
Trump came into contact with about 500 people from the day he tested positive for COVID-19 in late September 2020. It was his plan, it was his decision. He was warned by his medical advisors and ignored them.

You've mentioned that one before. It's as if you don't approve of China installing bases in their part of the world. Do you think they need your permission? Did you ask the permission of the rest of the world when you installed your 700 bases? You constantly refer to China as adversaries but you trade with them all the time. Just what do you see as a proper relationship between the 2 nations, that they remain poor so you can buy cheap shirts? Is that why you think the rest of the planet is for, to serve your desires? You should start to question your own assumptions, it will do you good.

Those islands don't belong to China.  The international court ruled unanimously against them They stole them by force.  They assured the world they only were using them for peaceful purposes. They lied and turned them into major military bases. 

America and the world gave them a chance to be part of the regular international business community even allowing them into the WTO World Trade Organization despite being Communist.  So they went on to steal our intellectual and military secrets.  Yours too.  How are they poor? They practically own your Vancouver.  They will have the largest economy and close to largest military in the world soon if not already.  Most of world has caught on to their perfidy.  You seem behind.

"perfidy?"   They probably learned it all at American M.B.A. schools.  :)

Why is it bad for China to have a large economy but good for the US to do so? Ditto for their military. Are you saying they don't have a right to defend themselves but the US does? How do you arrive at that distinction?

What military secrets did they steal, that's news to me.

What do you mean by "They practically own your Vancouver." Are you saying the Chinese government owns a lot of real estate in Vancouver or are you just worried that a lot of Asians live there?

You could ask him how much China owns in U.S. Treasuries, and the video URL I provided goes into this. But it would be pointless to ask him such a question. As it is to ask him any questions. Unless you like digging into rabbit holes.  ;)
