Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) blasted the Biden Administration for it’s inaction over the Chinese balloon currently over the United States. “Would Trump have let China fly a spy balloon over our country?” asked Jordan. “Would Reagan? JFK? Truman? No, no, no, and no.  So why’s Biden letting China off the hook?”  Senator Ted Cruz said that White House lack of response shows  “indecision and weakness.”  The Biden Administration said it will not shoot down the balloon as it “does not present a military or physical threat to people on the ground.”  Fox News is also reporting that a second balloon has been spotted over Latin America.  Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder, speaking for the Pentagon, said “We now assess it is another Chinese surveillance balloon.”
