Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley says that President Joe Biden’s failure to even mention the threat China poses to national security in his address to the United Nations Tuesday is a sign of weakness that the Communist regime is certain to exploit.

“Joe Biden is the best thing that's ever happened for China's ambitions to become a world superpower,” Haley wrote in one of a series of tweets criticizing the president’s speech and refusal to address the Chinese threat.

What’s more, China is emboldened by Biden’s weakness, Haley writes:

“Joe Biden failed to even utter our greatest national security threat by name today: China. While he bows to China on climate change, they're committing genocide of the Uyghurs, suppressing Hong Kong, threatening Taiwan, and covering up COVID-19. He's weak and they know it.”

“With Joe Biden asleep at the switch, America’s enemies rejoice,” Haley writes, noting that China isn’t the only hostile foreign power looking to exploit Biden’s weakness:

“China is running circles around us, Russia and Iran sense our weakness, terrorists are gaining power, and our closest allies don’t trust us. Just how exactly is America leading by the ‘power of our example.’ With Joe Biden asleep at the switch, America’s enemies rejoice.”

Haley also rebukes Biden’s declaration that he wants the U.S. to rejoin the U.N.’s infamous Human Rights Council:

“Joe Biden just announced he wants to rejoin the UN Human Rights Council. We left the council because we should never lend America's credibility to a sham made up of the worst human rights abusers including China, Russia, Cuba, and Venezuela.”

And, while Biden warns of the danger of future pandemics, he’s endangering the world by refusing to investigate the cause of the current one, the coronavirus, Haley says:

“Joe Biden keeps talking about the ‘next pandemic’ but what about the source of the current one? China unleashed COVID-19 on the world, and by not holding them accountable or having a credible investigation, you're only putting the world at risk once again.”

“Biden’s speech did not feature an America that leads. Leadership takes strength,” Haley says. “What we just saw was a U.S. President repeating feel-good talking points.”
