During Wednesday’s White House Press Conference, Fox News reporter Peter Doocy questioned White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about President Biden’s stance towards China.
Doocy specifically asked why Biden was “afraid” of the Chinese, citing his inaction on Chinese spy balloons and his refusal to hold China accountable for the origin of COVID-19 as reasons for his intense questioning.
Jean-Pierre defended the president, stating that he was not afraid of China and pointing to his recent trip to Ukraine as evidence of his courage.
However, Doocy continued to press on, reminding Jean-Pierre that China had created a virus that had killed over 1.1 million people in the US and that Biden was not punishing them for it.
This exchange highlights the ongoing tension between the US and China and the importance of holding China accountable for its actions.
While Doocy’s questioning was tough, it is important to note that the White House Press Secretary defended the president and his stance towards China.
