Jake Sullivan, who serves as President Biden’s National Security Advisor, recently made another series of baseless threats with regards to Putin’s ongoing invasion in Ukraine.
More specifically, Sullivan declared that China, who has openly backed Putin’s invasion, will “absolutely” suffer unknown consequences if it provides any economic backing to the ongoing war in Ukraine.
In an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sullivan initially dodged questions regarding President Xi Jinping’s “co-conspirator” relationship with President Vladimir Putin, though he eventually admitted that the increasingly chummy relationship between the two nuclear superpowers is “a concern.”
“We believe that China, in fact, was aware before the invasion took place that … Putin was planning something,” Sullivan stated in a remarkable nod to the obvious.
“[The Chinese] may not have known the full extent of it, because it’s very possible that Putin lied to them in the same way he lied to Europeans and others,” Sullivan continued, despite China’s role in the global pandemic and resistance to international investigation.
“We also are watching closely to see the extent to which China actually does provide any form of support [to Russia], [including] material support or economic support,” Sullivan continued blithely, despite the presence of China’s UnionPay in Russia after Visa, MasterCard, and American Express suspended operations in the nation.
“[The relationship between Putin and Xi] is a concern of ours,” Sullivan brayed.
“We have communicated to Beijing that we will not stand by and allow any [nation] to compensate Russia for its losses from the economic sanctions,” the nation security advisor added.
However, when questioned on whether or not the United States would sanction China if it provided any form of economic aid to Russia, Sullivan balked and refused to affirm whether or not the Biden administration would consider doing so.
“[I am] not going to sit here publicly and brandish threats,” Sullivan snarled.
China has openly declined to sanction Russia after the invasion, thereby already providing economic aid to the Putin regime.
