China will not surpass US as global leader on his watch, says Biden
US President Joe Biden on ทดลองเล่นสล็อต xo ทุกเกม said he would prevent China from passing the United States
to become the most powerful country in the world, vowing to invest heavily to ensure America prevails in
the rivalry between the world's two largest economies.
Biden said he had spent "hours upon hours" with Xi Jinping when he served as vice president under former
President Barack Obama, and was convinced the Chinese president believed autocracy - not democracy -
held the key to the future.
The Democratic president said he had made it clear to Xi that the United States was not looking for
confrontation, but would insist China abide by international rules for fair competition, fair trade and respect
for human rights.
"China has an overall goal ... to become the leading country in the world, the wealthiest country in
the world and the most powerful country in the world," he told reporters at the White House.
"That's not going to happen on my watch because the United States is going to continue to grow."
Biden took aim at Xi and Russian President Vladimir Putin for embracing autocracy.
"He's one of the guys, like Putin, who thinks that autocracy is the wave of the future, (and) democracy
can't function in an ever-complex world," the president told his first news conference since taking office
Earlier in March, Biden told ABC News he believed Putin was "a killer", which sparked fury in Moscow.
