President Joe Biden met Chinese dictator Xi Jinping on Monday in Bali, Indonesia, for their first in-person meeting in five years.
Biden noted at the beginning of the meeting he spent a long time with Xi when they were vice presidents but had not seen him in person in a while.
“I believe there’s little substitute, though, for to face-to-face discussions,” Biden said, recalling their “candid” relationship with each other.
He said he hoped that China and the United States would work together on global issues of climate change and food insecurity to manage their ongoing “competition” with each other as nations.
“The United States stands ready to do just that — work with you — if that’s what you desire,” Biden said.
But neither leader mentioned in their opening remarks, the coronavirus pandemic that came from China, the reason for both leaders spending so much time apart.
Xi noted that he had not met in person with Biden since the 2017 World Economic Forum in Davos, five years ago.
The meeting ended after 4 hours and Biden wasn’t in the best shape.
Still, his handlers put him out there with a pre-approved list of questions!
BIDEN: “Um…. uh…. I ca—having trouble reading this…”
That was painful and embarrassing.

Joe didn’t want to take more, because he didn’t want to answer questions about the Fentanyl they send us, the Wuhan-Chinese Originated Genetically Altered Man-Made Virus they sent us, and doesn’t want to talk about the GOP-controlled House!
He can only answer whatever his teleprompter has pre-entered and whatever text his brain can handle.
