Joe Biden’s handling of Russia and China’s relationship has been nothing short of a disaster. At a recent White House press briefing, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby why the president “let” Russia and China form a partnership “against the U.S.”
Kirby attempted to explain that Russia and China “have long chafed at U.S. leadership around the world”, but Doocy interjected that since Biden has been president he has “talked tough” about pressuring Putin and Xi to act right or risk their standing on the world stage.
Doocy then asked Kirby whether he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping “fear” Biden. Kirby’s response was that it’s not about fear, but about Biden “advancing our foreign policy goals around the world”.
However, it is evident that Biden’s foreign policy is not working. The two countries have formed a strong alliance in the lead-up to the Ukraine war, alarming U.S. officials and other countries around the world.
On top of that, Secretary of State Antony Blinken has even warned that China may decide to aid Russia with “lethal support” to support its effort in taking Ukraine.
It is clear that Biden’s “talk tough” approach is not working, and he is not doing enough to prevent Russia and China from teaming up against the U.S. In addition, he has failed to condemn the war in Ukraine or to stop China from invading Taiwan.
It is time for Biden to take a more aggressive stance in order to protect the U.S. and its allies from these two powerful nations.
The stakes are high, and Biden must take a more assertive approach to ensure that Russia and China do not take advantage of U.S. weakness and become an even greater threat to global security. I
f Biden continues down his current path, the U.S. will only become more vulnerable to attack or manipulation from Russia and China. It is time for Biden to step up and take action to protect the U.S. before it is too late.
