Biden’s ‘xenophobic’ remark on India and Japan is clarified by the White House, which claims he was making a broad point

The White House provided clarification after US President Joe Biden’s description of Japan and India as “xenophobic” nations that do not accept immigration, stating that Biden was making a “broader point.”

He was speaking more broadly. The president’s regard for our friends and partners is well known to them,” said White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre on Thursday.

“Talking about this country and emphasizing the value of being an immigrant nation and how it strengthens our nation.” She said, “So that’s what he was talking about.” That still has to do with how we connect with our allies. It goes without saying that we have a close connection with Japan and India. Furthermore, the President has made a point of focusing on these diplomatic ties during the last three years, Jean-Pierre said.

At a campaign fundraiser event on Wednesday, Biden made the statement, labeling China, Russia, Japan, and India as nations that “don’t want immigrants” and calling them “xenophobic.”

At the function, Biden emphasized that “freedom, America, and democracy” were at the core of the US election that would take place in November.

You know, you and a lot of other people are responsible for a portion of our economy’s growth. Why? because we accept immigration,” he said.

“We look to the reason; look, think about it,” he said. Why is China’s economy stalling out so badly? Why is everything in Japan going wrong? Why does Russia exist? For what reason is India important? due to their xenophobia. They oppose immigration.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida paid an official visit to the White House in April, while US President John Kerry received Prime Minister Narendra Modi on a state visit last year. Since hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants enter the country each month, Biden’s immigration policies have drawn criticism from the Republican Party and his opponents.

In the next presidential election on November 5, which will see Biden face up against presumed Republican nominee Donald Trump, a former president, immigration is still a divisive topic.
