XI, BABY AIN'T I GOOD TO YOU: Biden Admin Backs Protesters in China, Goes Soft on Xi Jinping

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.28.22

The White House has released a statement on the growing unrest and protests in China over the draconian COVID-19 lockdowns; “everyone has the right to peacefully protest,” the statement says.

“We’ve long said everyone has the right to peacefully protest, here in the United States and around the world. This includes in the PRC,” a White House National Security Council spokesperson said in a statement, using China’s official acronym.

A weak response that falls short of condemning Xi Jinping and his repressive lockdown policies —and some suspect that Biden’s ties to China have to do with it.

From The New York Post:

President Biden’s family has extensive business relationships with Chinese government-linked companies and first son Hunter Biden reportedly still owns a 10% stake in a Chinese state-backed private equity firm.

The White House statement did not specifically fault the actions of Chinese authorities in its statement, but expressed support for the activists’ underlying objection to Xi’s “COVID zero” policies aimed at preventing any transmission of the virus.

Chinese cities including Wuhan cast off pandemic lockdowns as early as 2020 — much earlier than in the United States and other Western countries — but the rise of the more contagious but less lethal Omicron variant prompted a retrenchment this year.

“We’ve said that zero COVID is not a policy we [are] pursuing here in the United States. And as we’ve said, we think it’s going to be very difficult for the People’s Republic of China to be able to contain this virus through their zero COVID strategy,” the White House statement said.

“For us, we are focused on what works and that means using the public health tools like: continuing to enhance vaccination rates, including boosters and making testing and treatment easily accessible.”
