Biden admits real reason behind US war on China
By Kei Pritsker, Breakthrough News, April 1, 2021
Joe Biden just admitted the real reason behind the US anti-China crusade. Never before has a US president acknowledged that the US may no longer be the world's undisputed superpower.

What makes this situation even more absurd is the public voted for Biden and the Democrats because they were led to believe the United States and the world would be a safer place with them in charge. This comes even though the historical evidence has always demonstrated the opposite
