China Media Pundit Says He Hopes Joe Biden Lives to See LA Olympics Boycott
The United States' diplomatic boycott of next year's Winter Olympics in Beijing continues to trigger strong yet mixed reactions from China.
One diplomat mocked the decision by posting a photograph of the deadly Surfside condominium collapse in Florida, while a state media pundit said he hoped that President Joe Biden, who is 79, would live long enough to see China boycott the Los Angeles Summer Games in 2028.
The official line out of Beijing is that it couldn't care less whether American government officials attend the Games in February. But these comments tell a different story.
