Politico, an American left-wing publication owned by Germans, claims that Communist China is publicly embarrassing President Biden. After the notorious spy balloon incident in February, China has “ghosted” the 80-year-old Democrat and “pushed back especially hard” on attempts to arrange a call between President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
While trying to rearrange his trip to China, Secretary of State Antony Blinken has been met with the “cold shoulder” in Beijing.
Embattled French globalist President Emmanuel Macron joined a group in Beijing on Wednesday that included the European Union’s Ursula von der Leyen, and scores of business leaders, suggesting that he sees the writing on the wall for American power in the Biden age.
Economic considerations are motivating the Frenchman’s groveling posture, as Macron has stated that he expects “major deals” to be announced between French and Chinese businesses during his time in Beijing, and as his officials have stated that Airbus may be able to secure more Chinese company on top of a previous order for 300 aircraft in 2019.
The Chinese publicly mock US overtures, and Emmanuel Macron seems to have seen the writing on the wall for American influence under the Biden administration.
Despite Xi and Putin’s recent announcement of a “no boundaries friendship” and Chinese authorities labeling the US “the true menace to the globe” in the days after the Russian invasion, Macron has stated his confidence that China can play a significant role in establishing peace in Ukraine.
Trump noted that a dangerous and destructive alliance including Russia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and North Korea had evolved under Biden, and he lamented the United States weakened position on the world stage as a result.
