President Discusses Foreign Relations

Iran and China were part of President Biden’s pre-Super Bowl interview.

It has become tradition for America’s president to sit with a television interviewer prior to the Super Bowl program, and President Biden continued that tradition on Sunday.

He was asked about foreign relations matters, particularly with respect to China and Iran.

When asked if he would lift sanctions former President Trump imposed on Iran when he pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal, President Biden responded, “No.” He nodded his head in affirmation when asked if Tehran would first have to stop enriching uranium, which that country confirmed it had resumed doing last month, before talks could resume with Iran again.

He was also queried about any discussions he’d had with China’s President Xi, and President Biden said they “haven’t had occasion to talk to one another yet.” He added, “There’s no reason not to call him.”

In the interview, President Biden described China’s president as “very bright” and “tough,” although he “doesn’t have a democratic, small D, bone in his body. … I’ve said to him all along we need not have a conflict, but there’s going to be extreme competition. I’m not going to do it the way Trump did. We’re going to focus on international rules of the road.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For members of the president’s administration tasked with the development and implementation of America’s foreign policies and the changes being made.
  • For the new Secretary of State and relationships with other nations, both allied and not.
