Joe Biden continues to blunder the United States into crisis after crisis.
Joe Biden told a reporter that if China invaded Taiwan the United States would defend them militarily.
Reporter: are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?
Biden: That’s the commitment we made. That’s the commitment we made. We are not—look. Here’s the situation: we agree with the One China policy, we’ve signed onto it, and all of the attendant agreements made from there. But the idea that, that it could be taken by force, just taken by force, is just not appropriate. It will dislocate the entire region and be another action similar to what happened in Ukraine. And so it’s a burden that is even stronger.
The White House sought to backtrack the comment:
Past presidents have offered what The New York Times calls “strategic ambiguity” when confronted with questions about a military response to a potential Chinese invasion of Taiwan.
Apparently Biden’s staff was also surprised with the outright admission that the US would offer more than aid to Taiwan, as has been done in Ukraine, but actual military assistance further than arms and resources.
A statement from the White House sought to backtrack the President’s comments, in a move that the press has become accustomed to over the past year and a half since Biden took office.
“As the president said, our policy has not changed. 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,” read the statement from staff.
“The White House quickly tried to deny that the president meant what he seemed to be saying.”
This is the second time in less than a year that this White House is scrambling after Biden comments on Taiwan. Last time was October. https://t.co/tIfMIm4meq
