Trump and Biden have battled over the administration's response to the coronavirus as well as U.S.-China policy in recent weeks, with the former vice president releasing an ad accusing the president of being too weak on China in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some, particularly Republicans, have said Beijing's response should result in consequences for Chinese officials for not being forthcoming with information about the virus.

The Trump campaign has also released ads accusing Biden's son Hunter of an unsubstantiated charge of using his father's influence to score a business deal in the country.
