CJR: Secretary of State Blinken had his first major meeting in his new role and let’s just say it did not go too well for him.
If you were concerned that the United Stated would get walked over with Biden running the show, you were right.
Blinken not only made a fool of himself, but he also embarrassed the entire country.
Getting Ripped in Public
The Chinese delegation absolutely dressed down Blinken on the world stage.
While Blinken spoke timidly, the Chinese delegation was firm and went right for the throat.
In part, the Chinese told Blinken, “I think we thought too well of the United States, we thought that the U.S. side will follow the necessary diplomatic protocols.
The dress-down continued, stating that “the United States does not have the qualification to say that it wants to speak to China from a position of strength.”
Just watch the exchange, and tell me who you think got the better of it…
