White House “Clarifies” Biden’s Comments About US Defending Taiwan From China

President Biden is a walking time bomb for those who have agreed to work for the 79 years old mentally declining senior citizen.

Instead of staying in his ever-diminishing lane set by his handlers allowing them to provide cue cards and written comments to be read from his teleprompter,  Joe increasingly goes off on into dangerous waters by making statements that are factually untrue and against U.S. policy.

The bigger problem is, as our nation’s Commander In Chief, Biden’s comments carry the risk of leading the nation into military conflicts. Considering the ambiguity that the U.S. has maintained in Taiwan’s relationship with mainland China, Biden’s dogmatic comments and military commitment reveals that Joe doesn’t know what he is doing.

According to Breitbart, there are three different understandings of what “China One” means.

“One China” is a phrase used to mean several different policies. In the United States, it is used to mean the policy of not recognizing Taiwan as a sovereign state and maintaining diplomatic relations with Communist China. China used the term “One China principle” to mean that Taiwan is a province of China, which is a far broader interpretation than America’s.

Taiwan uses the term “One China” to mean that it – the Republic of China – is the only legitimate Chinese state in the world and the communist People’s Republic in Beijing is a political aberration.

On Monday President Biden said that the United States would intervene militarily if China attempts to take Taiwan by force, a warning that goes directly against decades of U.S. policy maintaining a more neutral and deliberately non-committal position held by previous administrations.

The White House once again had to quickly downplay Joe’s comments, saying that in spite of the President’s understanding of the One China agreement, they don’t reflect a change in US policy.

In a statement following Biden’s comments, a White House official said the US official position remained unchanged.

“As the President said, our policy has not changed. He reiterated our One China policy and our commitment to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. He also reiterated our commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself,” the official said.

It’s the third time in recent months that Biden has said the US would protect Taiwan from a Chinese attack, requiring the White House to walk back his remarks.

Biden’s comments took place during a joint news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Tokyo.

When asked if the US would be willing to make more of a commitment to help Taiwan in the event of an invasion than it did with Ukraine?

“You didn’t want to get involved in the Ukraine conflict militarily for obvious reasons. Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?” a reporter asked.

“Yes,” Biden replied. “That’s the commitment we made.,” assumedly citing the Taiwan Act.

The Taiwan Act allows Washington to establish “relations” with Taipei separately from Beijing and allows the United States “to provide Taiwan with arms of a defensive character,” BUT does not make a military commitment to defend Taiwan’s independence.

No military treaty exists between Taiwan and America.

“We agree with the One China policy. We signed on to it, and all the attendant agreements made from there, but the idea that it can be taken by force, just taken by force, is (just not) appropriate,” he said,” Biden added.

The US provides Taiwan with defensive weapons but has remained intentionally ambiguous on whether it would intervene militarily in the event of a Chinese attack.

Biden’s top administration officials were caught off-guard by the remarks, several aides told CNN, adding that they were not expecting Biden to be so unequivocal.

In a statement following Biden’s comments, a White House official said the US’ official position remained unchanged.

“As the President said, our policy has not changed. He reiterated our One China policy and our commitment to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. He also reiterated our commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself,” the official said.

In November, Biden had to clarify his own comments after he said that Taiwan was “independent” from China.  “We are not encouraging independence,” Biden said, repeatedly saying that “nothing” would happen on the issue of Taiwan.

To end on a positive note, everyone knows Joe Biden’s not what he used to be, and thus the comments the Chief Executive Officer makes can receive accordingly by those who might have been negatively affected by them, knowing that the White House will be right behind him cleaning up the mess.
