President Joe Biden will not speak for protesters in China who are chanting in support of “freedom.”
During a press briefing with White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby, a reporter asked for Biden’s opinion on protests in China. Unlike past examples where Biden has voiced support for one side or the other, it would appear that he is sitting this one out.
“What is the president’s reaction when he hears protesters in China chant ‘freedom’ or ‘Xi Jinping step down’?” a reporter asked Kirby during the presser.
Reporter: “What is the president’s reaction when he hears protesters in China chant ‘freedom’ or ‘Xi Jinping step down’?”
Kirby: “The president’s not going to speak for protesters.”
Reporter: “So there’s no reaction?”
Kirby: “These protesters are speaking for themselves.” pic.twitter.com/Q8Rg0QOx9J

“The president’s not going to speak for protesters,” he responded bluntly.
“So there’s no reaction?” the reporter clarified.
“These protesters are speaking for themselves,” Kirby responded.

Each of these answers should be preceded with: “President Biden hasn’t received authority from Xi to go beyond what we’re already saying.”
