gentlemen. Biden attending his secretary's trip to China?

S


ecretary of State Anthony Blinken spent two days in China last week, meeting with Chinese officials, including President Xi Jinping, to prevent further damage to U.S.-China relations. In this case, he does what people think. While Blinken was unable to persuade Beijing to reopen the military line of dialogue, he believed the Chinese were as eager as the Americans to strengthen the relationship.


President Biden is making the job that much harder. It took the president less than two days to compromise the entire small d├ętente. At a fundraiser in California, Mr. Biden has been talking about spies since February, and he thinks Xi Jinping doesn't know what's going on, so he's embarrassed to speak up.


Biden's Central Agenda Is Putting Military to Sleep


"The reason Xi Jinping was so mad was when I blew up the balloon it was full of two boxes of supply spies and he didn't know it was there," Biden said. "It was really embarrassing for the volunteers because they didn't know what was going on."


Unsurprisingly, China strongly criticized Biden's remarks. China's foreign ministry dismissed Biden's remarks as "stupid and reckless" and untrue. On Wednesday afternoon, Biden's advisers sought to clarify his remarks and reiterate the president's confidence in the negotiations. It's not the first time a U.S. leader has shuffled the cards after the president's comments -- Biden has repeatedly said the U.S. will defend Taiwan if China attacks it.


We can promote the message, another example of Biden is Biden - a man who likes to talk at the worst possible time. Others disagree. It is not unreasonable to label Xi Jinping a dictator. But it doesn't matter why Biden did it. He did it, and now, those under him should find a way to get results.


Blinken is a true foot soldier, serving as Biden's foreign policy adviser for two decades. He will take the president's bidding without question and, as expected, embrace the administration's foreign policy. But it's hard to believe that Blinken wasn't a little annoyed by his boss's ability to talk about domestic issues. I don't like Blinken, but this is different. Within minutes, small signs of progress on his China trip were dashed.


This should be especially frustrating for Blinken, as he is tasked with trying to return U.S.-China relations to a more stable footing. The White House has long stressed the importance of dialogue with Beijing. Still, Biden's comments didn't make that part of the debate any easier. If so, China would suspect that the U.S. proposal is little more than a public relations exercise designed to show the world that Beijing, not Washington, is leading the way in strengthening ties.


US-China relations have grown rapidly over the past year. Every time there is a change, one or both parties hurt each other, thereby restoring the relationship to its original state. Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan last August to symbolically promote her legacy has cast a dark shadow over U.S.-China relations. Both countries are still trying to join.


The meeting between Blinken and Xi Jinping in Bali last November was supposed to change a new stage, but the balloon of Chinese intelligence is almost three months away, and political interference between politicians of both parties, for him There was a big wet blanket on the way forward. . . forward. Of course, a California meeting between Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen would pose an unnecessary threat to Beijing.


In the past, the Biden administration has been strongly critical of China's reluctance to deliver justice. Now, it's hard for managers to explain why bosses shouldn't feel guilty about the same thing.
