After the visit of US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, which was seen as a ray of hope for US-China relations, a cold shower came on Tuesday evening: US President Joe Biden called China’s head of state Xi Jinping a “dictator”.

In February, the US military shot down a suspected Chinese spy balloon over the United States. Biden said at a fundraiser in San Francisco that Xi was upset at the time because he didn’t know where the balloon was when it was launched. The US President added: “It’s very embarrassing for dictators when they don’t know what happened.”

Beijing reacted very angrily to the US President’s statements.

This is tantamount to a public political provocation. China is very dissatisfied and rejects the statement.
