Biden Won’t Support Taiwan’s Independence Following Country’s Presidential Election

In a move demonstrating the Biden administration’s disregard for peace worldwide, President Joe Biden recently said the U.S. would “not support independence” for Taiwan from China after the country voted for Lai Ching-te to become its new president.

Politico reported that Ching-te has been an outspoken critic of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and supports Taiwanese independence.

Biden has repeatedly said that the U.S. would not be involved in the political affairs of Taiwan and China and has refused to denounce the CCP’s attempts to strip Taiwan of its desired independence.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, several Biden administration officials congratulated Ching-te on his victory.

“We congratulate Dr. Lai Ching-te on his victory in Taiwan’s presidential election,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken wrote. “We also congratulate the Taiwan people for participating in free and fair elections and demonstrating the strength of their democratic system.”

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) congratulated Taiwan’s president-elect, writing, “We are happy to see democracy thriving among the Taiwanese people. The United States is eager to work with President-elect Lai and build on the strong partnership we’ve enjoyed with President Tsai.”

In May 2022, Biden had said the U.S. would defend Taiwan against Chinese aggression, saying, “That’s the commitment we made.” The president pointed out that a unilateral invasion of Taiwan by China “is just not appropriate.”

“It will dislocate the entire region and be another action similar to what happened in Ukraine. And so it’s a burden that is even stronger,” he added.

The president’s comments were soon corrected by the White House, which said Biden was reiterating “our commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself.”

Under Biden, the U.S.’s adversaries, including China, have governed as they see fit.
In 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine, which is something the Kremlin had not done under the Trump administration.

In 2023, China flew a spy balloon across the U.S. that the Biden administration shot down several days too late.

Early on in his tenure, the president provided Iran with $6 billion, which the terrorist-rampant country later used to help Hamas, a terrorist organization, invade the U.S.’s strongest ally, Israel, on Oct. 7, 2023.
