Joe Biden’s competency is center stage as he begins his campaign for re-election. But the truth is, he may not be running the show anymore.
And this top Republican exposed who really runs the White House.
President Biden had another whirlwind of concerns thrown at him all last week.
During a speech, he forgot which country he had last visited during his international tour – only to be reminded by a child in the crowd.

He also misspelling “eight” among other gaffes.
Our octogenarian president is not exactly firing on all cylinders.
This week, Biden lost a battle against the phrase "long-term care," misspelled "eight," and delivered a baffling account of his foreign travels.

All of this has made many on the political Left and Right extremely nervous about his ability to serve effectively.
But one Republican says he’s not the one pulling the strings anymore.
According to RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, China is running the Biden government.
McDaniel discussed voters’ concerns ahead of the 2024 election on “Fox News Sunday,” stating they want the Republican Party to unite to fight President Joe Biden’s plan. She specifically stated that citizens are concerned that the Biden administration is obligated to the communist country.
“The voters…feel that angst,” McDaniel said. “And they say that to me all the time. We need party unity. We need to bring everybody together because what they’re doing to our country is frightening. We’re not gonna have the America we know and love if this continues, if they stack the Supreme Court, if they get rid of the filibuster, if they abandon energy independence, if they’re so beholden to China.”
“China is running this White House in a lot of ways,” McDaniel continued.
“China is the reason fentanyl is coming across our [southern] border. China is taking our kids’ data on TikTok. We sold our Strategic Petroleum Reserves to China. This is an administration that is more China First than America First, and the American people want a President who cares about them.”
Recent critics have accused the Biden administration of being too soft on China. Last month, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm lauded China’s energy and environment policies, saying the US could “learn” from them.
“China has done — has been very sensitive, and has actually invested a lot in their solutions, to achieve their goals,” she said.
“We’re hopeful that, you know, we can all learn from what China is doing. The amount of money that they’re investing in clean energy is actually, you know, encouraging.”
The National Security Council reiterated earlier this month that the Chinese spy balloon that flew across the country in February gathered very little intelligence, despite NBC News reporting that it collected data from multiple sensitive American military installations and transmitted it back to China “in real time.”
Also this month, federal authorities in New York detained two persons for allegedly running an unlawful “police station” for the Chinese Communist Party. According to the New York Post, there are up to six other secret police stations in the United States.
Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen advocated for a “constructive” and “healthy” relationship between the United States and China last week. “China’s economic growth need not be incompatible with U.S. economic leadership,” she said. “We do not seek to ‘decouple’ our economy from China’s.”
