Biden: Chinese leaders believe they will ‘own America’ in 15 years
President Biden gave a frightening warning Friday about the future of China and the United States, saying Chinese Communist Party believes it will “own America” in 15 years.
“We’re in a battle between democracies and autocracies,” Biden told a group of troops at Joint Base Langley Eustis in last week. “The more complicated the world becomes, the more difficult it is for democracies to come together and reach consensus,” the New York Post reports.
Strangely after Biden’s warning about China, he went on to brag about his close relationship with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leader President Xi Jingping.
“I’ve spent more time with President Xi [Jinping] of China than any world leader has — for 24 hours of private meetings with him with just an interpreter, 17,000 miles traveling with him in China and here,” President Biden said. “He firmly believes that China, before the year 30, ’35, is going to own America because autocracies can make quick decisions.”
The New York Post reports that Biden did not elaborate on the remarks and he did not mention China again in the remarks.
