United States President Joe Biden gave a speech at this year’s United Nations General Assembly on Monday. During his address, he did not confront China, and because of this, “Woke, Inc.” author Vivek Ramaswamy has called the president the “embodiment of weakness.”
On “Fox News Primetime“, host Pete Hegseth called the speech as a “declar[ation] he was surrendering to China, all branded under his new doctrine of relentless diplomacy.”
“That’s right up there with leading from behind,” the host told Ramaswamy, adding that the president sees global warming as more of a pressing battle than other concerns.
Not to forget here that Fox News has often been accused of reporting in favor of the Republican Party, the George W. Bush and Donald Trump administrations, and conservative causes. It often portrays the Democratic Party in a negative light.
“Biden is the embodiment of weakness. Here is the problem weakness in diplomacy – weakness only emboldens our enemies. Weakness begets aggression from our enemies. You saw it from the Taliban in recent weeks,” he said, adding: “Now you are seeing it in China exhibiting aggression as well.”
Ramaswamy called Biden a symptom of the “cultural fragility” problem rather than the center point. He said that the new American construct of “cultural fragility” has supplanted American Exceptionalism with the help of the Biden administration.
Ramaswamy said that the “cultural fragility at home begets fragility abroad.” The author pointed out that China understands this and is using “our companies to criticize the United States from within.”
He continued to say that fostering such a culture of victimhood within actually makes the United States weaker abroad when the same companies, institutions, and government “does not criticize the Chinese Communist Party for actual human rights abuses.”
Further, Ramaswamy noted that weakness is the problem in diplomacy because it “emboldens our enemies. Weakness begets aggression from our enemies. You saw it from the Taliban in recent weeks. Now you are seeing it in China exhibiting aggression as well.”
In his speech at the General Assembly, Biden mainly talked about COVID-19 and climate change.
He said in part, “Instead of continuing to fight the wars of the past, we are fixing our eyes on devoting our resources to the challenges that hold the keys to our collective future: ending this pandemic; addressing the climate crisis; managing the shifts in global power dynamics; shaping the rules of the world on vital issues like trade, cyber, and emerging technologies; and facing the threat of terrorism as it stands today.”
The White House has not commented on the statements made by Hegseth and Ramaswamy.
