China’s Xi Jinping Maintaining Pressure on Joe Biden Over Taiwan Policy

Americans see that a weak Pretender-in-Chief is a huge liability for the U.S. Aside from whatever other leverage the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has on Joe Biden, they’ve benefitted from his making a fool of himself and the U.S. by bending to China.

In recent days, The Tatum Report has covered the latest dustup between the U.S. and China, involving House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s impending visit to Taiwan. With a default toward weakness, the Biden administration reportedly does not support Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.

A phone call, yesterday, between Biden and Xi, prompted by Pelosi’s possible visit, lasted two hours and 17 minutes, according to Axios.

CNN reported Xi wasted no time using harsh rhetoric to intimidate Biden. Xi said, “Public opinion shall not be violated, and if you play with fire you get burned. I hope the US side can see this clearly.”

It seems apparent that China wants an excuse to move on Taiwan, which it still considers a part of China. But the Biden admin wants to avoid conflict. However, history teaches that appeasing tyrants never works. But Biden opposing Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, specifically because of Bejing’s objections, risks appeasement.

Also according to CNN, Biden remained in a safe zone, being diplomatically ambiguous. “The White House’s account of the call was less specific. ‘On Taiwan, President Biden underscored that the United States policy has not changed and that… [it] opposes unilateral efforts to change the status quo or undermine peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.’”

Politico reported, aside from Pelosi’s Taiwan visit, “Xi is also facing a sensitive time with the 20th Communist Party Congress coming up later this year.” Xi’s influence could be weakened if the CCP perceives any “cracks in the United States’ commitment to the One China policy….”

The two also discussed “climate change and health security [CCP virus],” which are both laughable, especially when dealing with the CCP. China must celebrate “climate change” that hamstrings the U.S. while “developing nation” China is not held to climate change protocols.

And “cooperation” with China over the CCP virus, which they may very well have either accidentally or intentionally released on the world, is laughable.
