If the political leadership of any country doesn’t deserve a “more polite tone” at this point in time, it’s China. However, NPR seems to view Trump as having been too hostile, and Biden will soften the tone:
President Trump's hostility toward China has changed the relationship between the two countries.
Although President-elect Biden will likely set a more polite tone with Beijing, analysts say, he's unlikely to reverse Trump's tariffs.

I'm sorry we should not be hostile to the country that created a global pandemic, crashing the world and US economy leading to mass unemployment and several hundred thousands of deaths.
Defund these people. Enough is enough. https://t.co/5iLhMyJT3A

China unleashes the virus on the world and we’re supposed to look forward to Biden’s “more polite tone”? Peak NPR…
Of course a state broadcaster would sympathize with poor China.

The "reporting" in this country is embarrassing.

I am fine with hostility. I mean, have you seen the news lately? https://t.co/AV2WxWcuYf

Interesting framing here, @NPR. If by "hostility" you mean finally punching back against systemic cheating, IP theft, violation of human rights and efforts to expand its surveillance apparatus in Europe and the U.S., then sure. https://t.co/yhzay2naGO

Is NPR funded by the ChiComms now?

And John Brennan’s really looking forward to Biden “fixing” what Trump has done in the Middle East. What could possibly go wrong?
