Biden Blunder: ‘I Applaud China for Stepping Up’

“Today, I applaud China for stepping up,” President Joe Biden accidentally said in a speech in Canada on Friday, adding another public gaffe to his legacy of public speaking miscues that have gone viral on social media.

“Excuse me. I applaud Canada,” Biden then said, prompting laughs from the members of the Ottawa parliament.

Biden had been addressing Canada’s immigration policies, The New York Post explains:

“The US leader made the error while discussing how Canada’s government agreed to accept more migrants from Latin American countries — immediately after not mentioning China at all while discussing fentanyl, which is driving a surge in US overdose deaths.”

 “You can tell what I’m thinking about China,” Biden added. “I won’t get into that, yet.”
