    President Joe Biden (D) declared during an interview on Sunday night that the U.S. Military would engage in war with communist China if China attacked Taiwan, a statement that was quickly walked back by the White House.

    Biden made the remarks during an interview on CBS News' "60 Minutes" with leftist host Scott Pelley.

    "On the same day we spoke to the president, Putin met with China's leader, Xi Jinping," Pelley said while narrating. "There's concern that Russia's attempt to force reunification with Ukraine could inspire China to attack the island of Taiwan. U.S. policy since 1979 has been to recognize Taiwan as part of China, but remain silent on whether the U.S. military would defend the democratic government there. This is among the places where our interview runs into controversy."

    Pelley asked Biden, "What should Chinese President Xi know about your commitment to Taiwan?"

    "We agree with what we signed onto a long time ago. And that there's one China policy, and Taiwan makes their own judgments about their independence," Biden responded. "We are not moving - we're not encouraging their being independent. We're not - that - that's their decision."

    "But would U.S. Forces defend the island?" Pelley asked.

    "Yes, if in fact there was an unprecedented attack," Biden responded.

    Pelley said that after the interview a White House official told the show that U.S. policy has not changed and they refused to say if the U.S. Military would defend Taiwan.

    "So unlike Ukraine, to be clear, sir, U.S. Forces, U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion?" Pelley pressed.

    "Yes," Biden doubled-down.

    TRANSCRIPT:

    On the same day we spoke to the president, Putin met with China's leader, Xi Jinping. There's concern that Russia's attempt to force reunification with Ukraine could inspire China to attack the island of Taiwan. U.S. policy since 1979 has been to recognize Taiwan as part of China, but remain silent on whether the U.S. military would defend the democratic government there. This is among the places where our interview runs into controversy.

    Scott Pelley: What should Chinese President Xi know about your commitment to Taiwan?

    President Joe Biden: We agree with what we signed onto a long time ago. And that there's one China policy, and Taiwan makes their own judgments about their independence. We are not moving- we're not encouraging their being independent. We're not- that- that's their decision.

    Scott Pelley: But would U.S. Forces defend the island?

    President Joe Biden: Yes, if in fact there was an unprecedented attack.

    After our interview a White House official told us U.S. policy has not changed. Officially, the U.S. will not say whether American forces would defend Taiwan. But the commander-in-chief had a view of his own.

    Scott Pelley: So unlike Ukraine, to be clear, sir, U.S. Forces, U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion?

    President Joe Biden: Yes.

Considering that Joe Biden is considered by so many to be the Imposter President: Is he actually knowledgeable enough, wise enough, patriotic enough to be this Constitutional Republic's president at this difficult point in these tumultuous times?
  Yes, Mr. Biden is thoughtful and kind, and just so different from the "Orange Man".
  No, this representation of "president" is either too corrupt, too stupid, or both to be a real president.
  I just want the fun guy, who knew how to make stuff work back.
