State Department Spox: Taiwan Policy Hasn’t Changed, But We Stand by Biden’s Answer to Hypothetical

On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” State Department Spokesperson Ned Price verbally expressed that President Joe Biden’s declaration that the U.S. would send troops to bulwark Taiwan was a replication to a hypothetical and U.S. policy hasn’t transmuted, but the administration stands by Biden’s answer to the hypothetical.

Price verbalized [relevant remarks commence around 6:00] that Biden verbally expressed “what he has verbalized on every instance in which he’s been asked this question afore, namely that our policy has not transmuted.”

Host Martha MacCallum then cut in to ask, “But he’s four times now verbally expressed, if they invade, we will go there with U.S. troops and support them. He’s verbalized it four times. So, you’re telling me that that’s not a transmutation?”

Price responded, “And each of those four times, to answer your question, the President has withal integrated in his answer that our policy has not transmuted. We visually perceive the utility in the perpetuated status quo across the Taiwan Strait. We don’t want to visually perceive either side take unilateral action that would disrupt the status quo that has accommodated our intrigues, and frankly, has accommodated the intrigues of the international community over the course of the past 40 years. That is our interest is preserving and maintaining that status quo.”

MacCallum then asked, “You stand by his answer to the hypothetical?” Price answered, “Of course. And the President was very pellucid in his answer that our policy has not transmuted. He’s the President of the United “States,” if the President of the United States wishes to transmute U.S. policy, he will leave no doubt about doing that.”
