Newt Gingrich went on Fox News and said something about Joe Biden that no one saw coming
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is no fan of Joe Biden.
That’s why Gingrich surprised Fox News viewers.
And Newt Gingrich went on Fox News and said something about Joe Biden that no one saw coming.
Joe Biden made another massive foreign policy gaffe when he told a reporter that the United States would deploy military forces to defend Taiwan if Communist China launched an invasion.
Biden’s comment reversed the long-standing U.S. policy of “strategic ambiguity,” where American Presidents never revealed if the United States would respond with military force to a Communist Chinese invasion of Taiwan.
Joe Biden’s handlers quickly released a statement to the press clarifying that he didn’t actually mean the United States would intervene militarily in the event Communist China attacks Taiwan.
“As the President said, our policy has not changed,” a press statement read. “He reiterated our One China Policy and our commitment to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. He also reiterated our commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself.”
Appearing on Fox & Friends, former Speaker Gingrich praised Joe Biden’s promise to fight a war with Communist China over Taiwan.
Gingrich ripped Biden’s staffers as leftists who did not hold a high opinion of American military power.
“I think that all of his key people are hard line left-wingers who are terrified of the world, and I think that Biden instinctively here was right. And I believe, and as you know, Claire Christiensen and I wrote a book on Trump versus China and laid out the whole Chinese threat. I think that the clearer you can be, we’re not in a situation of strategic ambiguity, because you don’t want Xi Jinping to try to gamble and try to take Taiwan. I thought Biden was right, and his staff is nuts,” Gingrich stated.
But Biden’s staff walking back his pledge to defend Taiwan raised another question.
Is Joe Biden really in charge of his own administration?
After all, the President of the United States sets the administration’s policy agenda.
And this is the third time Joe Biden said the U.S. military would defend Taiwan.
Biden’s handlers have released statements each time informing the world that he did not mean what he said, and that the President doesn’t speak for the government of the United States.
