CBS News' nancycordes asked President Biden during a news conference Monday in Japan whether the U.S. would impose quarantines over confirmed monkeypox cases. 'No, I don't think so,' Biden said, later adding that 'people should be careful.'

At a Tokyo news conference, he also said he doesn't think a recession is inevitable in the U.S. and there's no need for strict anti-monkeypox quarantine measures.

.Mr. Biden also said Beijing is"flirting with danger" with recent military flights close to Taiwan.Under the"One China" policy, the U.S. recognizes Beijing as the government of China and doesn't have diplomatic relations with Taiwan. However, it maintains unofficial contacts with Taiwan, including a de facto embassy in Taipei, the capital. The U.S. also supplies military equipment for the island's defense.

The president said if"the sanctions are not continued to be sustained in many ways, then what signal does that send to China about the cost of attempting to take Taiwan by force?"When asked if a recession is inevitable in the U.S., Mr. Biden said simply,"No," despite record high inflation and supply shortages partly caused by Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Taiwan Not Included in Launch of New Biden Indo-Pacific PactPresident Joe Biden is expected to unveil a list of countries who will joining a long anticipated Indo-Pacific trade pact, but Taiwan won’t be among them. White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan confirmed that Taiwan isn’t among the governments signed up for Monday’s launch of the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework. It is a trade pact that’s meant to allow the U.S. to work more closely with key Asian economies on issues including supply chains, digital trade, clean energy and anticorruption. Inclusion of the self-ruled island of Taiwan, which China claims as its own, would have irked Beijing. The framework is meant to establish Biden’s economic strategy for the region. Beijing, in anticipation of the launch of the pact, has criticized the U.S. effort. So that means China can take Taiwan later and it will be ok…wtf. 🤷‍♂️ With what money ? The left stealing from Americans taxes again

Hopefully China doesn't invade itself. Lol joe biden threw taiwan under the bus to appease china by pushing the one china policy Freedom isn't free! 2016年5月10日,四川省攀枝花市72岁(时年)老人蒲德芬去攀枝花煤业集团有限公司大宝顶矿信访,惨被矿党委书记刘海林指使矿保卫科长陈刚等人殴打虐待;警方居然判定'摔伤'且处罚两替死鬼共200元;家人依法维权又被打、非拘、软禁、威胁全家、打击迫害!向各部门实名检举却被踢皮球,公正律法尚存? This is not what people voted for. Traveling the world starting wars and giving billion dollar hand outs.

It’s ironic 🤔 at one time we stood against being world police that’s what NATO is established for? Wow 😮 My question is why NATO isn’t? This shows The United States is NATO and NATO is nothing without the United States. 🙏 Look out we are being set up for a dangerous storm. nancycordes It's so disgusting to watch the American press desperately try to pull a gotcha on President Biden with ridiculous questions like this. We have no journalists in America, just pro GOP propagandists. NOBODY anywhere in the world is talking about quarantines for monkey pox. Shut up

Why do you have a burden not even you side of the world mind your own business and by the way Ukraine is not your business either I hope Taiwan don't take the US's words seriously and attempt to join the Quad Alliance 🥴

US military will defend Taiwan 'if it comes to that,' Biden saysPresident Joe Biden said that he would send U.S. troops to defend Taiwan if China invades the island nation in a similar way that Russia invaded Ukraine. NO I think biden was laying he just want to Comfort Taiwan's people so that let Taiwan provocation China Biden for two seconds remembered he was born and still alive. I miss Donald Trump the man of peace!

I'm not sure you're going to be able to goad China into invading. I smell a false flag nuclear strike. Then why doesn’t he visit the Island? nancycordes Why waste a perfectly good opportunity to impose more mandates in the future. Better to just ignore the problem until it is a crisis. nancycordes No one has made Monkeypox Vaccine.

nancycordes Be careful. Solid strategy. nancycordes We need a vaccine for magapox. nancycordes Vaccines coming up for Korea nancycordes No vaccine for monkeypox nancycordes learned nothing nancycordes

In Tokyo, Biden says would be willing to use force to defend TaiwanU.S. President Joe Biden said on Monday he would be willing to use force to defend Taiwan, rallying support on his first trip to Asia since taking office for U.S. opposition to China's growing assertiveness across the region. Taïwan is not a Nato member, just as Ukraine. Why USA doesn't use force in Ukraine also? Both aggressors have the A-H bomb, no? China owns additionaly a huge part in the american Debt (1 billion $). America sold his soul to her ennemies. Put China Joe on the spot and he will confirm anything. leftists are war mongers

Biden Indo-Pacific pact focus is on American families, allowing the U.S. work closer with key Asian economies on supply chains, digital trade, clean energy, anticorruption, early warnings for supply chains to avoid empty shelves. It will NOT include greater access to U.S. market.

Biden set to unveil his economic plan for countering China in AsiaPresident Joe Biden on Monday plans to unveil a long-sought economic plan for engaging a region coming increasingly under the influence of China, as he enters the second leg of his debut tour of Asia. Why is he allowed to stand next to young girls? Haven’t we clearly seen enough evidence. Instead of constantly interfering with China, just take care of your country, many have been shot dead by criminals, many babies are hungry because they can't get formula milk. Oddly Biden does not stop in Taiwan. God forbide Biden upset Xi Jinping.
