For the first time since he became President, Joe Biden met face to face with China’s Xi Jinping.
To say that the stakes were high would be an understatement: China continues to send fighter jets into Taiwanese airspace, technology theft by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is an ongoing threat, and there still have not been any consequences for the massive cover-up of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This was a huge opportunity to show Xi that the United States of America will stand up for democracy and will not be intimidated by communist dictators. Instead, President Biden said that he believes Xi is “willing to compromise on certain issues.”
We need to return to the policy of peace through strength, and I will continue to push the Administration to take action and stand strong against China. Xi Jinping has one goal: override the United States and make China the global superpower. He cannot be allowed to succeed.
