Biden says he’s ‘not looking for confrontation’ with China, despite ‘stiff competition’ & issues with Taiwan and South China Sea

While Biden acknowledged China “have the overall goal to become the leading country in the world, the wealthiest and most powerful country in the world,” he attempted to dispel any possibility that this might come to pass. 

“That is not going to happen on my watch, because the United States is going to continue to grow and expand,” the president reassured reporters during the Thursday press conference. He did not clarify exactly where the US felt it might “expand,” though Washington has recently flexed its military muscles in the South China Sea, working together with Taiwan in an effort to box in Beijing’s naval power.
