The Great American Wake-Up Call: How China’s Balloon is Exposing Biden’s Weakness

News outlets owned by the Chinese Communist Party are criticizing the Biden administration’s handling of a recent incident with a Chinese surveillance balloon. The outlets claim that the U.S. overreacted to the situation and showed immaturity in its response.

The Global Times, a Chinese hardline publication, accused President Biden of staging a “juvenile farce” in the skies in order to look tough on China. The U.S. shot down the balloon as well as an unidentified object in the skies.

The Chinese Communist Party is trying to focus on the partisan fighting within the U.S., however, both Republicans and Democrats in the House voted unanimously to condemn China for sending the balloons and other vessels into U.S. airspace. Democrats also had harsh words for China for trying to downplay its routine intrusion into U.S. airspace.

Republican Opinion Commentary: The Biden administration’s handling of the recent incident with the Chinese surveillance balloon is a clear demonstration of their weakness and lack of strategic thinking.

The Chinese Communist Party is taking advantage of the political divide within the U.S. to cast itself as the responsible party in the relationship and blame the U.S. for its overreaction.

It is concerning that the Biden administration is resorting to shooting down harmless objects in an attempt to look strong. Republicans must continue to stand firm against China’s aggression and support a strong, strategic foreign policy that protects the interests of the American people.
