American Majority CEO Ned Ryun ripped President Joe Biden, criticizing his "incredible weakness" during a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in San Francisco.
Ryun shared the remarks during a Fox News interview on Wednesday evening.

“No, I mean, the sad part is a lot of our ruling class likes the Chinese model of governance. I don’t think they have a problem with it. They like and appreciate the authoritarianism of China and wouldn’t mind if it came onto our shores," Ryun stated.
"I’m just struck by the incredible weakness that’s being displayed right now that Biden’s having to ask Xi to stop the flow of fentanyl coming into our country and begging him to stop that,” he added.
President Biden should confront Xi about China sending a spy balloon across America, cheating on trade deals, or hacking into our computers.

"U.S. President Joe Biden said on Wednesday he had not changed his view that Chinese President Xi Jinping was effectively a dictator, a comment likely to land with a thud in Beijing after the two leaders held straightforward summit talks," Reuters reported.
"Biden held a solo news conference after four hours of talks with Xi on the outskirts of San Francisco. At the end of the news conference, he was asked whether he still held the view that Xi was a dictator, something he said in June," it noted.
The comments marked Biden's strongest words against the Chinese president, taking place after their meetings were completed.
The talks were also complicated by protests outside of the summit and by reports of San Francisco cleaning up homeless encampments and drug addicts from city streets ahead of the gathering.
The end result was nothing in terms of gains for America, with Ryun claiming the president's embarrassing actions on the nation's own soil.
