Joe Biden may have just made a colossal mistake in foreign relations.
She chose to skip the funeral of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
With tensions at an all-time high with China, this will be perceived as a win for the Chinese.
A Japanese commentator told Fox News, "I think that it would be significant for Biden to come here now, especially because the threat of China right now is rising more than ever.
"Taiwan is in danger, and what we hear in Japan is that after Taiwan, it's Japan."
Ishii continued, "Now is actually the good time to show our message that Japan and the U.S. stand together strongly against China."
Biden did not go, however, choosing to send word salad expert Kamala Harris instead.
Typically, this would be something the vice president would be tasked with, but this is not a normal situation.
Biden can try to use Hurricane Ian as cover, but he has not even picked up the phone to talk to DeSantis.
This would have been a chance for Biden to show strength with Japan and Taiwan, but he blew it.
Ishii added, "We [could] see that 'oh, America is America, it's strong' and 'We have to keep the world order with the leader America.'
"But because he's… choosing not to come, I think it's working in favor for China."
Yet another failure on the foreign relations front from a man that ran on his foreign policy experience.
