Xi Calls Biden “Old Friend”–White House Goes Into Damage Control Mode

The Biden White House is going into full damage control mode.

To open Biden’s nearly four-hour call with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Xi called Biden an old friend.

From The Daily Mail:

White House officials insisted on Tuesday that President Joe Biden does not consider China’s President Xi Jinping an ‘old friend’ after an interpreter said as much during their virtual meeting on Monday.

‘You’ve heard explicitly from the president himself, that he has a longstanding relationship with President Xi,’ said White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates on Tuesday.

‘They’ve spent a great deal of time together. They are able to have candid discussions, be direct with each other, which helps them be productive.

‘But he does not consider President Xi an old friend,’ Bates told reporters.

Xi appeared to troll Biden by greeting him as an ‘old friend’ at the meeting – in direct contradiction to repeated denials from both the president and Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

The New York Post released an article detailing all of Biden’s deals with China.

It is a must-read.

Hunter Biden and China: A timeline of his business ties to the Far East

For at least seven years, many when his father was vice president, Hunter Biden pursued a lucrative deal to run an investment firm founded by millions of dollars from a Chinese partnership.

Joe Biden claims he never spoke with Hunter about his dealings, and never profited from any group his family set up, but e-mails and text messages found on Hunter Biden’s old laptop hard drive — first published by The Post — show “the big guy” being referenced repeatedly. A federal investigation into Hunter is ongoing, and Republicans vow to continue to probe how Hunter profited off his father’s name, and what President-elect Biden knew about it.

“I’m not going to turn a blind eye on this,” Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) said last week. “We’ll keep digging.”
