Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy believes that President Joe Biden is looking to get closer to China.
It is tough to imagine the president being any cozier with China than he is, and has been, but Doocy said that is the plan.
“Something that we learned today is President Biden is not looking for more distance, more tension with China. If anything, he’s trying to get closer to them,” the reporter said before playing a video of what Biden said.
“The United States will continue to compete vigorously with the PRC, but we’ll manage that competition responsibly so it doesn’t veer into conflict or accident conflict. And where it’s possible, where our interests are, coincide,” the president said.
“XI is also here looking for some help growing the Chinese economy, which had been growing at a record pace until recently,” the reporter said before playing a video of what Jinping said.
“Planet Earth is big enough for the two countries to succeed. One country’s success is an opportunity for the other,” he said.
“President Biden again referred to Xi as a dictator, but it’s not stopping him from trying to get the U.S. military and the CCP’s military talking again, particularly as the CCP makes provocative moves in the south China sea,” the reporter said.
“We’re back to direct open, clear, direct communications, on a direct basis. Vital miscalculations on either side can — are — can cause real, real trouble with a, a country like China or any other major country. And so I think we’re making real progress there as well,” the president said.
“The other big one from today, fentanyl, it is a top killer of Americans, that originates in China,” the White House correspondent said.
“You know, we’re in a situation where we agree that fentanyl and its precursors will be curbed substantially and the pill presses. That’s a big movement. They’re doing that. And, by the way, you know, I won’t — I guess I shouldn’t identify where it occurred, but, John, I know two people near where I live, their kids literally, as I said, they woke up dead,” the president said.
“Woke up dead, said the president. He’s now at a dinner here in downtown San Francisco with some other world leaders. Xi is skipping that dinner. He decided instead to go meet over a meal with some CEOs, including Elon Musk, who are in town. He is trying to get American businesses to start reinvesting money in the Chinese economy. We don’t know if that’s going to happen yet but I was talking to one top official who was traveling with the president, and this person was telling me that, from Xi’s perspective, they have assessed the white house has, that, from Xi’s perspective, just getting this meeting at all is a win for him. And he got it. And it’s done,” the reporter said.
