Psaki Dodges When Asked If Biden Is ‘Sending A Message To China’ By Picking Japan, South Korea As First In-Person State Visits

Jen Psaki hides under the rock

The White House press secretary told the media that South Korean President Moon Jae-in will arrive at the White House for a visit with Joe Biden. This visit will happen in May. Well, Psaki didn’t really say whether the bilateral will deliver a “message to China.”

Jae-in is the second person to visit the US. Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga visited D.C. on Friday. Psaki didn’t answer a question from Aamer Madhani from the Associated Press. She didn’t want to say whether Biden will send “a message to China with who he’s picking first.”

“Well, I think, first the president is looking forward to welcoming the prime minister tomorrow, and it is significant that our first in-person bilateral is with Japan,” Psaki said. “It emphasizes our important relationship and all of the cooperative work we are doing together.

I will say that of course our approach to China and our shared coordination on that front will be part of the discussion, as will our joint commitment to the denuclearization of North Korea. Security will be a prominent issue, regional security as well. I would anticipate that China will be a part of those discussions.”

The Biden administration is focused on China as the country’s biggest international competitor. Biden’s discretionary budget for the fiscal year 2022 is actually a sizeable boost in defense spending.

The President also kept “nearly all” of Donald Trump’s economic policies toward Chinese authorities. He has even pledged to boost corporate incentives to re-shore job positions.
