President Biden recently took a trip to Asia with the goal of rallying Asian allies against China’s rising influence.
Phelim Kine, D.C.-based China correspondent for Politico, said the trip was “a raging success” in that the United States received strong expressions of unity from the governments of South Korea, Japan, India and Australia.
Kine said China realizes other countries are challenging its ability to project power with increasing aggression across Asia and the Indo-Pacific region.
He said China reacted to the trip with threatening phrases and clearly saw it as a threat.
