US President Joe Biden on Wednesday termed the Chinese President Xi Jinping as a ‘dictator’ after the end of his meeting with Jinping
When he was asked whether he still considers Xi a ‘dictator’, Biden replied, “Well, look, he is.”
“He is a dictator in the sense that he is a guy who runs a country that is communist,” Biden said. He also added that the Chinese government is totally different than that of the US.
