U.S. officials are confirming that another Chinese spy balloon is confirmed to have entered the United States, and crossed through parts of Florida and Texas before eventually crashing in Hawaii four months ago. This marks another Chinese spy balloon that Biden was once again hesitant to shoot down.
This news comes after the latest Chinese spy balloon made its way through the continental United States, and Biden was informed last Saturday about the situation. However, Biden waited until a full week after to shoot the balloon down, as it crossed over the Atlantic ocean and had presumably gathered any information it needed from the United States.
The media and left-wing commentators are attempting to shift the blame for previous Chinese sky balloons onto former-President Donald Trump, for an alleged three spy balloons having flown over the continental U.S. during his Presidency. While only one balloon is confirmed to have entered during Trump’s presidency, some are reporting as many as three balloons may have crossed through the continental U.S. during this time.
Trump and other top security officials from his time as President have responded to the claims, adding that, “This never happened. It would have never happened,” Trump told Fox News Digital on Sunday morning, adding that Beijing “respected us greatly” under his leadership.
“It never happened with us under the Trump administration and if it did, we would have shot it down immediately,” Trump said. “It’s disinformation.”
Of course, Donald Trump wasn’t behind any airspace tracking systems during his time as President, and any message of foreign planes, jets, or aircraft would have come from security advisors, including the Pentagon and U.S. airforce. Without the necessary information from security advisors about foreign spy balloons entering the country, Trump would be unable to appropriately respond to the situation.
