Top Officials Slam Biden for Attempting To Claim Victory For Shooting Down Chinese Spy Balloon

President Joe Biden tried to claim victory after the Chinese spy balloon was shot down by the U.S. military.

Biden had allowed the ballon to travel the entire country without doing anything.

Many said the incident exposed Biden’s true weakness as a leader.

The president claimed he ordered the Pentagon to shoot it down on Wednesday as soon as possible,” but they decided not to shoot it down over land because of falling debris.

U.S. officials were “well aware” that the balloon had crossed into American airspace but decided not to inform the public to protect Secretary of State Antony Blicken’s diplomatic trip to China.

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said the Chinese spy ballon was sent to the U.S. “in an attempt to surveil strategic sites in the continental United States.”

Meanwhile, the Vice Chairman of the Appropriations Committee and a member of the Intelligence Committee, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), said Biden Biden should have taken out the balloon much sooner “over remote areas of Alaska or Montana.”

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Greene (R-NC) slammed Biden, saying it was “indefensible that this threat was eliminated only after great public outcry and the damage to U.S. national security and American sovereignty was already done.”

“The fact remains that President Biden when faced with the opportunity to protect the homeland from our adversaries, chose yet again to demonstrate weakness on the global stage,” Greene added.

“From the Southern border to Afghanistan and, now, Chinese surveillance directly above our homes and sensitive military installations, this President shows he is not interested in protecting American interests,” Greene continued.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said Biden should have “taken care of this before it became a national security threat.”

“I hope we will be able to recover the wreckage to help determine what intelligence the CCP collected while its spy balloon was over our country for days,” McCaul said.

“I will be demanding answers and will hold the admin accountable for this embarrassing display of weakness.”

Sen. Eric Schmitt (R-MO) said the damage has already been done.”

“We need answers from the Biden Administration on why it took this long to bring the Chinese spy balloon down, and we need [to] ensure that this never happens again,” Schmitt continued.

Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) said Biden’s inaction was “a tremendous embarrassment for the United States of America.”

Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) called the ordeal “an abysmal security failure by Biden.”

Even some Democrats, including Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI), said, “the Chinese government’s incursion into our airspace is unacceptable & we need to treat it as such.”

“There need to be consequences for the CCP beyond the postponement of @SecBlinken’s trip to Beijing,” she said.

“All members of Congress need to be briefed on the situation this week and in the future as we learn more from studying the remains of the balloon’s payload. We also need to take steps now to demonstrate to the Chinese government the seriousness of their actions. Whether through new sanctions or tighter restrictions on U.S. exports to China, the message needs to be loud and clear.”
