Joe Biden created another crisis.
Biden’s latest disaster left all of Washington scrambling.
And Joe Biden made a one-word confession that no one saw coming.
In a joint appearance with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Joe Biden reaffirmed America’s commitment to strategic ambiguity if Communist China attempted to invade Taiwan.
Reporters pressed Biden on what Biden meant by saying America would stand with Taiwan in the face of Communist Chinese aggression.
“You didn’t want to get involved in the Ukraine conflict militarily for obvious reasons,” Nancy Cordes of CBS News asked Biden. “Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?”
Biden then changed American policy on the spot and committed America to war with Communist China over Taiwan.
“Yes,” Biden responded.
“You are?” Cordes followed up.
“That’s the commitment we made,” Biden answered.
Biden expanded on that saying Communist China attempting to conquer Taiwan is an act of evil that cannot be tolerated.
“The idea that it can be taken by force, just taken by force, is just not appropriate,” Biden added. “It would dislocate the entire region and be another action similar to what happened in Ukraine. And so it’s a burden that is even stronger.”
Biden’s handlers immediately released a statement attempting to say Joe Biden did not commit America to military intervention in the event of a Communist Chinese invasion of Taiwan despite the fact that Joe Biden plainly spoke those words.
“As the president said, our policy has not changed,” the White House’s statement walking back Biden’s remarks read. “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.”
Biden’s support for U.S. military intervention in Taiwan was not a one-off.
This was the third time Joe Biden’s committed America to war with Communist China over Taiwan.
Conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt also questioned Biden’s handlers attempting to clarify Biden’s comments.
Hewitt posted that Biden made prepared remarks and pronounced the U.S. commitment to defend Taiwan while standing next to the prime minister of Japan.
This alarmed Hewitt as if the White House staff is making clear that the president of the United States does not speak for the United States government then that means Joe Biden is not actually in charge of his own administration.
This time is very different. He’s standing next to Japanese PM. He read a prepared statement. He got a direct question from WH press about using military force and he said “Yes.” If WH tries to walk that back, then @POTUS is being controlled by his staff. Not the way it works.
