Joe Biden commits to defending Taiwan



U.S President Joe Biden says the U.S. will defend Taiwan, if China chooses to invade

As tension between Taiwan and China rise, U.S President Joe Biden stated the United
States will defend Taiwan if there is ever an event of a Chinese invasion.

This statement sparked rage from China responding that it sent the wrong message to those seeking an independent Taiwan.

On Sunday night, 60 Minutes aired a Biden and CBS interview that US forces would
respond “if in fact there was an unprecedented attack.”

Taiwan tensions

The statement comes following an increasingly tense few months between the U.S. and China.

Biden reassured that this would involve having troops deployed, rather than supplying arms.

This statement comes exactly a month after China commenced large-scale military exercises in response to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taipei.

On Monday, the Chinese government announced that Biden’s comments were “deplored”
and “rejected”.

Prior to Biden’s remarks, the Senate foreign relations committee approved and passed the Taiwan Policy Act, which gives $6.5bn in funding and resources to Taiwan for specific military training and weapons.

In an event like this, the policy would allow sanctions on Chinese banks if Beijing continued
it’s escalation and fury towards Taiwan.

The U.S. and China officials are in discussions of the possibility of meeting in person for the
first time in Indonesia in November at the G20 summit.

This would be the initial meeting between Biden and Xi Jinping.

The individual reportedly triggered wild swings and volatility on the New York Stock Exchange.

A number of big brand names were caught up in the catastrophe. It included McDonald’s, Walmart, and Mobil.

The NYSE eventually came clean. Officials admitted the“root cause” of the screw-up was a “manual error” from a staff member in the backup data centre.

The employee accidentally left the system running.

That’s why some stocks behaved as if trading had already started, with no opening prices being set, sending the market into a meltdown. #trending #featured

FBI Director discusses classified documents as U.S. lawmakers demand answers



Bipartisan outrage on Capitol Hill as politicians say the Biden administration is stonewalling their quest for answers

FBI Director Christopher Wray is speaking out for the first time after several batches of classified documents were discovered in U.S. President Joe Biden’s Wilmington home and Washington think tank office.

On Thursday, Wray urged lawmakers and officials to be “conscious of the rules” when dealing with classified documents.

The statements appear to be a veiled criticism of President Biden after news broke that some of the classified papers in the President’s possession date back 14-years ago to when Biden was a Delaware Senator raising questions if this is a pattern for the president to mishandle classified information.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, there is bipartisan outrage as lawmakers say the Biden administration is stonewalling them in their quest for answers.

Currently, both Biden and former President Donald Trump are facing special counsel investigations into their mishandling of classified documents—and just this week, former Vice President Mike Pence turned over classified documents to the DOJ.
