Reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner expressed her strong disapproval of President Joe Biden’s upcoming meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping while American hostages are still held captive by Hamas in Gaza.
In a post on social media platform X, Jenner referred to Biden as the “world’s weakest leader” and criticized the choice of location for the meeting, San Francisco, as being synonymous with communism.
Jenner’s comments were made in response to a statement by Richard Grenell, former Acting Director of National Intelligence, who called out Biden for the slow progress in securing the release of American hostages in Gaza. The meeting between Biden and Xi is scheduled to take place during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in San Francisco.
However, expectations for Biden’s ability to navigate trade and national security matters with China are low. At 80 years old, Biden is deemed unlikely to outmaneuver the Chinese government.
Moreover, his perceived weakness has emboldened Xi to adopt a more aggressive stance in the region, particularly towards neighboring Taiwan. Concerns also persist regarding potential compromises Biden may have made due to his family’s business ties with Chinese Communist Party (CCP)-linked enterprises.
It is worth noting that Caitlyn Jenner has previously shown support for former President Donald Trump, endorsing his bid for re-election in 2024. She praised Trump for his ability to appeal to a broad range of Americans, stating that he had built a strong coalition within the Republican Party.
