Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., Criticized President Biden on “The Faulkner Focus” Wednesday for appearing “scared” to challenge China during his first speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, warning that the Communist regime does not take the president seriously.
BIDEN TELLS UN HE IS NOT LOOKING FOR A COLD NEW WAR WITH CHINA
SEN. TOM COTTON: I think a lot of people around the world see Joe Biden and laugh at the statements he made yesterday. You just mentioned or played a clip there he said we’re not looking for a new cold war. Well, of course we are not looking for a new cold war. We would prefer to have peace with all nations. But when China is waging a cold war against the United States, we have no choice or not to participate in it. We only have the choice of winning or losing. But beyond that, he didn’t even mention the name of China. It is as if he is afraid to mention the name of China. Now I know the White House is controlling the damage today, saying it was on purpose. Let me give you a contrast. In 2014, after Russia’s invasion of Crimea, Barack Obama, who isn’t the idea of a chest-beating American nationalist, used Russia’s name more than 10 times in his speech to the United Nations. So I think Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist leaders in Beijing are making fun of Joe Biden today. And it is a dangerous thing for China not to take the US president seriously.
