Chinese newspaper portrays Xi as dominating Biden during summit

Fox News reported that President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping had their first ever one-on-one meeting on Monday while at the G20 summit in Indonesia.

According to Breitbart, Chinese state-owned media has portrayed the meeting as being a loss for the United States. 

Chinese newspaper blames America for conflict

The website pointed to a report from the Global Times in which China’s dictator was described as “profoundly” laying out for Biden how America is at fault for tense relations between their respective countries.

The paper stressed how “it is not difficult to find that each time the continuous deterioration of China-US relations happens, it is due to the unilateral provocation by the United States.” It went on to add,

During the meeting, US President Biden expanded the previous “Five Noes” commitment made by the US leadership (i.e. to not seek a new Cold War; to not seek to change China’s system; that the revitalization of its alliances won’t be against China; to not support “Taiwan independence”; to not look for conflict with China) and proposed that the US respects China’s system, and does not seek to change it; the US does not seek a new Cold War, does not seek to revitalize alliances against China, does not support “Taiwan independence,” does not support “two Chinas” or “one China, one Taiwan,” and has no intention to have a conflict with China; the US side has no intention to seek “decoupling” from China, to halt China’s economic development, or to contain China.

“We hope that the US can implement President Biden’s commitment instead of always saying one thing and doing another,” the Times continued, insisting, “This is both about sincerity and integrity.”

Meanwhile, another article published by the Times sang Xi’s praises for having educated the American president on the need for better relations.

The dictator is said to have told Biden that it “is not in the fundamental interests of the two countries and peoples, and is not what the international community expects.”

Former Army lieutenant colonel says Biden showed “weakness” following meeting

Biden didn’t simply come off looking bad in China’s state press, as Army Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis noted in an op-ed for Fox News that the president showed “weakness” in speaking to reporters following his meeting with XI.

Maginnis pointed out how Biden “failed to mention whether he pressed the Chinese leader on important issues such as the regime’s maligned economic behaviors like its failure to abide by trade agreements.”

He also complained that the president didn’t address China’s “military aggression in the South China Sea, the supply of precursors used to make fentanyl which annually kills tens of thousands of Americans.

Also unmentioned were “the origins of COVID, the rampant stealing of our intellectual property, and whether [China] will dial back on its well-documented human rights violations.”
