Jen Psaki just seems to be digging herself and the rest of the White House a deeper hole every single day.
Although, to be fair, the White House hasn’t exactly given her any public relation victories to tout lately.
However, just because things are NOT going well in the Biden administration, that is no excuse for Psaki to be telling blatant lies to the American public.
Recently, she claimed that “President Joe Biden, unlike President Donald Trump, has spoken out against human rights abuses in China.”
That’s not even close to true. Yes, Biden has SPOKEN about human rights violations in China, but has DONE absolutely nothing to fix the problem.
And the other half of the claim, that Trump NEVER spoke out against the abuse of Chinese citizens? Even more wrong.
In 2018, Trump convened the first-ever international ministerial meeting on religious freedom, and even issued a declaration specifically addressing the human rights abuses occurring in China.
“We are particularly troubled by reports of the Chinese government’s deepening crackdown on Uighurs and members of other Muslim minority groups in China …
We are also concerned that the government is destroying or limiting access to houses of worship, including Protestant and Catholic churches and community buildings.
We strongly urge the Chinese government to protect the religious freedom of all individuals and to respect the human rights of all members of religious groups in accordance to China’s international commitments to respect freedom of religion.”
Sorry, Jen. Try again.
