Biden’s handlers forced into cleanup duty after latest Taiwan remarks

President Joe Biden’s handlers were forced into cleanup duty following his latest gaffe regarding Taiwan and China on Monday.

The White House was quick to retract his words that the U.S. would protect Taiwan militarily if China invaded.

“The commitment we made”

“Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?” a reporter asked the president during a news conference in Japan.

“Yes,” Biden replied.

“You are?” the reporter pressed.

“That’s the commitment we made,” the president said.

Clean up — again!

The statement marked the third time in the past nine months that Biden has said the U.S. would defend Taiwan militarily against China.

His words have led to the need for a quick and different response from White House leaders to clean up his mess.

“As the president said, our policy has not changed,” the spokesperson said. “He reiterated our One China Policy and our commitment to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. He also reiterated our commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself.”

A frantic mess

The White House later said the administration’s policies had not changed regarding Taiwan, according to Biden policy leaders.

The latest gaffe shows how dangerous Biden’s comments can be for the nation and other nations around the world.
