Biden’s staff has said he is “constantly on the job, no matter their location — whether they are on a state visit to another country or just 100 miles from Washington.” However, Biden debunked this narrative when he gave an irritated response to a journalist who asked him if he would be speaking with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
“I am not going to talk with you! I’m on vacation,” he snapped back. “Yes, we will be engaging in talks with Xi Jinping.”
However, Biden’s vacation remark wasn’t the only thing he said to reporters. While his previous one ended up debunking the myth that he is “constantly on the job,” there was another one that raised a much larger issue – exactly who is in control of him?
When a reporter asked if he was speaking with Xi, he responded, “No.” When he was questioned about whether or not he had made a decision regarding Chinese sanctions, he replied, “Yes. We are in the process of doing so.” The surprised journalist asked he meant he was lifting tariffs?
“We are working on making up my mind,” Biden said in response. “Prepared to sign it and I am ready to go.”
“WE are in the process of making up MY mind?” Who could he be talking about? It’s as though he said it aloud. Who is the “we” that will be “making up” Biden’s mind? Isn’t he the leader of America? If somebody else is pulling the levers, why is he in office?
