Biden’s Taiwan gaffe could lead to a new war with China

President Joe Biden’s gaffes have become more than a joke; they could become deadly, according to a Fox News op-ed.

The account revealed how Biden’s remarks about Taiwan could even lead to a new war with China.

Clean up every day

“Diverting the Chinese public from draconian lockdowns and rising joblessness might be tempting for the authoritarian Xi, who wants to be proclaimed ruler for life at the end of this year,” the op-ed stated.

“Chinese authorities responded angrily to Biden’s comment, with a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry saying ‘Beijing’ was ‘strongly dissatisfied’ with the president’s pledge, and vowing that the government would ‘take firm action to safeguard its sovereignty and security interests,” it added.

Walking back

After Biden’s gaffe, the White House frantically sought to fix the remarks.

In the end, the goal was to communicate that America’s policy with China and Taiwan has not changed.

Some Republicans hoped that Biden’s remarks were not an accident. Instead, they have pushed for stronger support of Taiwan’s democracy, pushing against China’s aggression. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich claimed the gaffe was “exactly right.”

The new controversy only adds to a growing list of military problems under Biden, ranging from his botched exit of Afghanistan to the latest controversy over the extent of America’s efforts to help Ukraine fight against invasion from Russia.
