Joe Biden shared sensitive info about Chinese spy balloon to room full of donors: Report

Welcome to another day in President Joe Biden's America, where at any given moment the elderly president is liable to spark World War III. 

According to Fox News, during a recent fundraiser with some 130 donors in the room, Biden made a number of seriously foolish remarks regarding sensitive operations surrounding the shooting down earlier this year of a Chinese spy balloon.

Additionally, Biden made remarks about Chinese President Xi Jinping, calling him a "dictator" and sparking anger from the leader of the communist country.

The remarks Biden made about the spy balloon reportedly caught U.S. officials off guard, as it was not meant to be shared in that manner.

"The reason why Xi Jinping got very upset in terms of when I shot that balloon down with two boxcars full of spy equipment in it is he didn’t know it was there," Biden reportedly said Tuesday at the fundraising event.

He added: "No, I’m serious. That’s a great embarrassment for dictators when they didn’t know what happened."

Biden's campaign was later questioned about whether or not it believed it was appropriate for Biden to share sensitive information surrounding the balloon incident to donors -- information that hadn't even been shared publicly by the U.S. intelligence community.

Fox News added:

U.S. officials in attendance were surprised by the president's remarks at a campaign event, according to the New York Times, which reported that an anonymous source confirmed Biden's comments were accurate.

To say China wasn't happy about the dictator comment would be an understatement.

"China has some legitimate difficulties unrelated to the United States, and I think one of the things that balloon caused was not so much that it got shot down, but I don't think the leadership knew where it was, knew what it was in it and what was going on," Biden said Saturday.

He added: "I think it was more embarrassing than it was intentional."

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mao Ning hit back at the U.S. president last week, making clear that it wasn't happy with what Biden said about its leader.

"The U.S. remarks are extremely absurd and irresponsible. It is a blatant political provocation," Ning said at a briefing. "China expresses strong dissatisfaction and opposition."
