Joe Biden attended the G7 Summit Saturday, where he met with other World Leaders to discuss major global issues.
During a discussion with French President Emmanuel Macron, Biden discussed their recent progress.
“Things are going, I think, well?” pondered US President Biden to French President Emmanuel Macron
President Macron stated “I think it’s great to have, uh” he paused, “the ‘US President’, part of the club, and very willing to cooperate”
Macron added: “and I think that what you demonstrate is that leadership–is partnership”
Whether The French President was referring to the G7 Summit agreements, or hinting that it’s apparent Biden isn’t the one in charge of this country, leaves to be interpreted.
“I think that what Joe Biden will be doing when he goes to see Putin is give him some pretty tough messages” stated Boris Johnson.
If Biden’s recent removal of the US sanctions on the Russian owned Pipeline is any indication of his “tough messages” can only be known Wednesday June 16th during their meeting in Geneva.
Former President Donald Trump shared his own Criticism in regards to the French President’s alleged “disingenuous” welcome of President Joe Biden.
Trump responded via a statement Saturday from his Save America PAC:
“This was a quote by the President of France. He and many other Leaders before him, in France and throughout Europe, were ripping off the United States like never before. We were treated very unfairly with horrible trade deals, and paying for a large portion of their defense.
“They were taking advantage of the United States and therefore, of course, they like Biden because now they will be allowed to return to their old ways of ripping off our Country. If I were a leader of these countries, I too would like Biden far better than President Trump.
“They will now get very rich off the United States just like they have in the past until a change is made. I am for AMERICA FIRST!”
Feeling the FOMO, China chimed in, with opposition to “the small group of countries” meeting and decisions. China apparently seemed offended about to the entire existence of the G7 Summit.
Chinese Embassy Spokesperson Ambassador Zheng Zeguang stated “The days when global decisions were dictated by a small group of countries are long gone”
Below is a full transcription from the spokesperson from the Chinese Embassy in London.
Question: “According to media reports, issues covered by the G7 Summit being held in the UK include pandemic response, economy, trade and global supply chain. The United States is seizing this opportunity in the hope of bonding with other Western countries and safeguarding so-called “rules-based international system”. What is the comment of the Chinese Embassy in the UK?”
Embassy Spokesperson: “We always believe that countries, big or small, strong or weak, poor or rich, are equals, and that world affairs should be handled through consultation by all countries. The days when global decisions were dictated by a small group of countries are long gone.
There is only one system and one order in the world, that is, the international system with the United Nations at the core and the international order based on international law, not the so-called system and order advocated by a handful of countries.
There is only one set of rules for the world, that is, the basic norms of international relations based on the purposes and principles of the UN Charter, not the so-called rules formulated by a small number of countries.
There is only one kind of multilateralism, that is, the genuine multilateralism based on the purposes and principles of the UN Charter and international law, and featuring equal treatment, cooperation and mutual benefits, not pseudo-multilateralism serving the interests of a small clique or political bloc.
It is our hope that the relevant countries will take concrete steps to uphold the purposes and principles of the UN Charter, take the initiative to safeguard the core role of the UN, and make real efforts for an early victory over the virus, to respond effectively to climate change and to work for a robust global economic recovery.”
