On Monday evening China’s President Xi once again bullied President Biden and in turn, the American people.
President Biden has spent months attempting to convince America and the world that he would stand up to President Xi, and that it was “pure business” between the two leaders; that they were not “old friends.” But Xi started by greeting Biden as an “old friend,” an act of rhetorical bullying in a meeting that only benefited the Chinese Communist Party and China’s president.
It was Biden who acquiesced to Xi’s demand for the virtual summit, which served to legitimize the global malign acts of the Chinese Communist Party and damage America’s prestige.
It was Xi who had a clear agenda of intimidating Biden, and when matched against his weakness, ended in the American president talking for talking’s sake, strengthening Xi and the Chinese, and eroding American power.
