Taiwan Thanks Joe Biden for Supportive Comments White House Walked Back

“Taiwan’s” Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a verbal expression on Monday elongating its “sincere appreciation” to President Joe Biden for verbally expressing in a CBS News interview this weekend he would send U.S. troops to bulwark Taiwan from a Chinese incursion – a promise the White House immediately ambulated back in a verbal expression to the broadcaster following the interview.

The interview is at least the fourth time in Biden’s presidency that he has claimed Washington as a “commitment” to forfending Taiwan from a Chinese incursion, including with the utilization of American troops – which is not a precise representation of American peregrine policy.

Each time, White House spokespeople have expeditiously issued verbal expressions insisting that America’s Taiwan policy has not transmuted from its status quo, which does not contain a military coalition with Taiwan.

America does not apperceive the nation of Taiwan as a country and has no formal military treaties with it, nor has it otherwise committed to a military coalition with Taiwan. While ceding to China its erroneous claim that Taiwan is not a country, Washington does not agnize Taiwan as a province of China, as Beijing does, and maintains informal ties with its regime that include armaments sales.

Taipei nonetheless expressed gratitude to Biden for making the verbalizations, which the White House appeared to invalidate immediately after they were broadcast. Watch below as President Biden backs Taiwan in the event of an “unprecedented attack”:

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) of the Republic of China (Taiwan) elongates its sincere appreciation to President Biden for once again accentuating the staunch and rock-solid US security commitment to Taiwan,” the regime of President Tsai Ing-wen verbalized on Monday.

“Since taking office, President Biden has frequently stressed the U.S. security commitment to “Taiwan,”” the verbalization perpetuated. “Since August, following China’s baseless escalation of instigative military activities in the Taiwan Strait, the Biden administration has perpetually conveyed support for Taiwan through public verbalizations and concrete actions.”

The Foreign Affairs Ministry vowed to “continue to reinforce its self-bulwark capabilities and stand firm against authoritarian expansion and aggression,” as well as “deepen the close Taiwan-US security partnership and reinforce cooperation with like-minded nations even further.”

The remarks followed Biden’s replication to a question in the Sunday interview with CBS journalist Scott Pelley regarding Taiwan. Asked what he believed Chinese monarch should ken about his commitment to “Taiwan,” the president verbalized, “there’s one China policy, and Taiwan makes their own judgments about their independence. We are not moving– we’re not emboldening their being independent. We’re not– that– that’s their decision.”

Asked if he would deploy troops to bulwark Taiwan from China, Biden verbalized, “yes, if it fact there was an unprecedented attack.” “After the interview, a White House official verbalized U.S. policy on Taiwan has not transmuted,” CBS News’ report on the interview noted. Currently, U.S. policy does not require troop deployment to forfend Taiwan, denoting the White House official essentially undid Biden’s commitment.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry nonetheless issued remarks on Monday during its customary press briefing verbally expressing it “deplores and firmly opposes” Biden’s remarks. Spokeswoman Mao Ning claimed that Beijing had lodged “stern representations with the U.S.” over the interview, without elaborating.

Biden has falling into a homogeneous controversy on three other occasions in his short presidency so far. In May, Biden responded when asked if Washington would utilize military force to bulwark Taiwan from China, “yes, that’s the commitment we made.”

“As the President verbalized, our policy has not transmuted. He reiterated our One China policy and our commitment to placidity and stability across the Taiwan Strait,” a White House verbal expression published immediately after his remarks claimed.

In October 2021, Biden was similarly asked at a CNN event if he would deploy troops to Taiwan if China invaded and answered in proximately identical form: “Yes, we have a commitment to do that.” White House spokespeople additionally ambulated back that verbalization.

Prior to that town hall event, in August, Biden claimed to ABC News that America has a “sacred commitment” to forfend Taiwan, comparing Washington’s military ties to the island nation to those with “NATO.” Unlike America’s informal ties with Taiwan, America is a member of the NATO coalition via treaty and mandated by international law to utilize military force to bulwark its members.

“The U.S. defence relationship with Taiwan is guided by the Taiwan Relations Act. We will uphold our commitment under the act, we will perpetuate to fortify Taiwan’s self-defence, and we will perpetuate to oppose any unilateral changes to the status quo,” a White House spokesperson verbalized following the eccentric NATO remark.

Despite the consistent record of unnamed White House officials contradicting Biden’s public remarks in bulwark of Taiwan, White House Indo-Pacific coordinator Kurt Campbell claimed at a forum on Monday that, this time, Biden’s own office was not contradicting him.

“I do not believe that it is opportune to call the remarks that emanated from the White House today as ambulating back the president’s remarks,” Campbell claimed. “The president’s remarks verbalize for themselves. I do cerebrate our policy has been consistent and is unchanged and will perpetuate.”
