Xi just wants to be

Chinese President Xi Jinping made a veiled swipe at the US and its allies yesterday during Asia’s Boao Forum when he warned against certain countries “bossing others around”. “One or a few countries shouldn’t impose their rules on others, and the world shouldn’t be led on by the unilateralism of a few countries,” he said. While he didn’t name the US, Xi called for more international economic integration and less looking to go it alone. Ahem President Joe Biden, who has maintained former President Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ policies when it comes to trade with China… Tensions between Washington and Beijing continue to heat up as the Biden administration makes preparations to sell weapons to Taiwan – a move that reaffirms America’s commitment to the Chinese-claimed territory. #SquizShortcut
