Biden showed complete lack of leadership in failing to address China in State of the Union

Just days after a Chinese spy balloon spent an entire week floating over the heads of Americans before finally being shot down, President Biden had an opportunity to send China a strong message in his State of the Union address. Unfortunately, the president once again chose not to lead.
Instead, he put issues like climate change, abortion and the Junk Fee Protection Act ahead of even mentioning China. The president’s apologists, like Sen. Chuck Schumer, have claimed Biden’s focus was on “the average working family and their concerns, their dreams, their hopes.”
This completely misses the point: Nothing presents a greater external threat to American families than the actions of the Chinese Communist Party.
Take the opioid epidemic that has ravaged our country for years. While conveniently leaving out that his own administration’s failures are to blame for our porous southern border, Biden did manage to acknowledge it must be better secured if we are to stop the flow of deadly fentanyl into our towns and communities.
We should be clear, though: The opioid crisis does not begin in Mexico. It begins in China.
