Caitlyn Jenner voiced her concerns regarding President Joe Biden’s upcoming meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping while American hostages are still held captive by Hamas in Gaza. Jenner described Biden as the “world’s weakest leader” and criticized the meeting as “shameful.” Her comments came in response to former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell’s callout of Biden’s inaction on the hostage situation.
Despite the meeting taking place in San Francisco, often associated with liberal ideologies, Jenner sarcastically remarked, “Meeting with whacko communist Xi in commie San Francisco, where else would we expect the world’s weakest leader?!” She questioned the credibility of Biden’s leadership, particularly in light of the ongoing hostage crisis in Gaza.
Biden’s encounter with Xi is scheduled during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit, yet expectations are low for the 80-year-old president. It is believed that Biden lacks the ability to outmaneuver China in areas such as trade and national security. This perceived weakness has emboldened Xi to adopt a more aggressive stance in the region, including towards neighboring Taiwan.
Furthermore, concerns have been raised about potential compromises in Biden’s relationship with China due to his family’s questionable business ties with companies linked to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). These unresolved issues regarding Biden’s connection to China raise doubts about his ability to effectively handle negotiations with Xi.
Jenner, who endorsed former President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign in 2024, emphasized Trump’s strengths as a candidate. She praised his ability to appeal to a wide range of Americans, unlike the Republican Party’s traditional base. Jenner stated, “It’s abundantly clear Trump is the only candidate that knows what it takes to win a general… He has built a big tent party—a coalition of support the GOP hasn’t seen in decades.”
By expressing her concerns about Biden’s meeting with Xi Jinping amidst the ongoing hostage situation in Gaza, Caitlyn Jenner highlights the perceived weakness of the current administration and raises questions about the president’s ability to effectively manage international relations.
