It seems the Biden administration got yet another black eye over this Chinese spy balloon mess. Over the weekend, the U.S. military shot down the balloon. But that was only after it floated over large portions of the United States, sending God knows what back to the communists.
Now, it looks as if someone within the D.C. swamp is trying to deflect blame off of old Joe. They claim China sent spy balloons during Trump’s time–at least three times.
From Fox News:
Information suggesting that Chinese spy balloons traveled over the continental United States during the Trump administration was “discovered after” former President Donald Trump left office, a senior administration official told Fox News.
How convenient. Just as the country demands answers from Biden over this spy balloon, a defense official claims three spy balloons flew over the country during Trump’s time. Except, this was discovered “after” Trump left office, meaning there is no proof this was known during his administration.
That sounds more than fishy, doesn’t it? How did the government find out about spy balloons after they were no longer around?
Trump isn’t buying this story, nor are some of his top officials.
From Fox News:
Trump and a number of his top national security and defense officials refuted the claim, telling Fox News Digital that it “never happened.”
Trump laid into this news in a post to his social network.
From TRUTH Social:
The Chinese Balloon situation is a disgrace… and now they are putting out that a Balloon was put up by China during the Trump Administration, in order to take the “heat” off the slow moving Biden fools. China had too much respect for “TRUMP” for this to have happened, and it NEVER did. JUST FAKE DISINFORMATION!
Trump claims that China never send spy balloons over the United States during his administration. He says this “never happened” because China had “too much respect” for him. The former president also blasted Biden’s response to the controversy, calling it “slow” and a “disgrace.”
Americans are also outraged that not enough is seemingly being done in light of this violation. The Chinese Communist Party sent a spy balloon over restricted American airspace. It was a clear attempt to invade our country.
Yet Biden sat back and didn’t order it shot down until it floated over much of the West Coast. The Pentagon claims it didn’t shoot it down, out of fear of falling debris. Then why not disable it, block the signal, or find a way to safely bring it down?
I can think of several options that would have disabled this balloon that would have avoided falling debris. Why couldn’t Biden’s DOJ? Perhaps because our military is being run by woke Democrats, not true leaders?
- A defense official claimed Chinese spy balloons flew over America during Trump’s administration.
- The person claimed they weren’t detected until after Trump left office.
- Trump and other top officials refute the claim, saying it never happened.
