Fox News reporter Peter Doocy has once again gone head to head with White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and he did not hold back one bit.
On Wednesday, Doocy pressed the Press Secretary harder than usual asking her why President Biden was “afraid” of the Chinese. In the exchange the Fox News reporter claims that Biden’s inability to act on the Chinese spy balloons and refusal to hold China accountable for COVID-19’s origin were all reasons for his intense questioning.
“Why is President Biden afraid of China?” Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre during Wednesday’s Press Conference.
Read KJP’s response to Doocy in the quote below:
“The president is not afraid of China … Did you see the president last week when we went to Ukraine, to Kyiv, this is not a president that’s afraid of anything. There was an historic trip that many of you said was brave, so clearly this is a president that is not afraid to go to a war zone, he’s not afraid to go there when there’s no military presence on the ground. So there is nothing this president fears.”
Doocy interjected at one point during the White House Press Secretary’s answer saying, “China created something that has killed more than 1.1 million people in this country, and…Biden is not punishing them.”
