It’s like a drunken monkey finding a book of matches! Post-American foreign policy.
Biden released an image on Twitter of him in the Oval Office on the phone with Xi.
‘Today I spoke with President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China as part of our efforts to deepen lines of communication, responsibly manage our differences, and address issues of mutual interest,’ he wrote along with the image.
The last time Biden and Xi last spoke was in March of this year – shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine.
Chinese state media released some excerpts from the call, including Xi telling Biden: ‘Those who play with fire will only get burnt. Hope the U.S. side can see this clearly.’
The leader of the People’s Republic of China also said he firmly opposes Taiwan independence and the interference of external forces.
On the other hand, Biden expressed the U.S. stance on the issue has not changed, according to a read out of the meeting.
I’m sure the Chinese are no more serious about Taiwan than Russia was about Ukraine. It’s not a second front in WW3 opening or anything. And, if you’re wondering, Taiwan and Ukraine are both somewhere between Ohio and Kentucky, so you know, ‘Murican interests and all.
UPDATE: THIS would be the worstest thing ever! Go, Nancy, go!
