At the G-7 Summit, the Biden administration is yet again trying to portray strength it clearly does not have, which was all the more evident by Russia’s defiant attacks on Kyiv and Kharkiv shortly after the generally clueless president’s arrival to Europe.
Even more humorously, the Biden administration has decided to trot out $200B that it doesn’t have in a supposed bid to counter Beijing’s growing inroads across the globe.
Biden claims that the United States will be raising $200B from various sources over the next five years in order to promote infrastructure development across various developing nations.
The $200B initiative is a lame attempt to counter China’s massive, multitrillion dollar Belt and Road project, which commenced in 2013 under Obama’s tenure and has continued in earnest in across 100 different nations to date, or more than 50 percent of the world’s countries.
The initiative, which was originally named “Build Back Better World,” has been renamed the
“Partnership for Global Infrastructure and Development” for various reasons, one of which includes the complete failure of Biden’s “Build Back Better” initiative on the domestic front.
According to one senior official in the Biden administration, “the president’s not thinking that we need to spend dollar for dollar versus China.”
“[However], if you add up what the U.S. and the G-7 partners are going to be announcing,” the unnamed official continued, “it comes pretty close to the number.”
Despite his bluster, Biden continues to rely heavily upon TikTok for allegedly reaching illiterate millennials and Gen-Z members, which has been widely cited as an effective spyware tool for the Chinese government.
Concerns about TikTok are so grave that US Army personnel members have been banned from using it, underscoring the extent to which Beijing has attempted to insert its tentacles into America’s military affairs.
Moreover, from a commercial perspective, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has admitted that TikTok has even eaten into Facebook’s longstanding userbase, which has sent the stock into a perpetual nosedive ever since the controversial CEO’s admission.
Though multiple American tech companies remain permanently banned in China, including Facebook, Biden apparently sees no issue with allowing TikTok to flourish across the United States, in spite of the grave national security risks.
The president’s refusal to ban TikTok has led many to question exactly which nation he exhibits true allegiance to, despite his prewritten, preapproved remarks at the G-7 Summit.
