Former Director of National Intelligence John Radcliffe has warned that China plans to interfere in the U.S.’s 2024 election and will intensify efforts to get President Joe Biden re-elected.
Radcliffe, in an interview with Fox host Maria Bartiromo on “Mornings with Maria Bartiromo,” maintained that Biden is the ideal candidate for China and that the communist regime would do anything to have the president re-elected.
The former intelligence director was responding to President Biden’s recent meeting with China’s Xi Jinping, where both men discussed Xi’s firm stance on Taiwan. Radcliffe said Xi’s stance on Taiwan is why Joe Biden is China’s ideal candidate.
“Well, I think that underscores why they wanted Joe Biden to be the president. That’s exactly what President Xi and the readout from Biden’s own White House acknowledges — that he said ‘I’m taking Taiwan. I want to do it peacefully. But either way, I’m going to take it. I’m going to reunify Taiwan.’ And you know, there was no response from Joe Biden,” Radcliffe stated. “We know that from the White House. And the appropriate response, of course, would have been and should have been, ‘Look, we’ve respected the One China policy but we also respect Taiwan’s right to self-governance and self-determination. And if you interfere, all bets are off.’”
Radcliffe pointed to the huge gains China has made since Biden took office, before adding that the Communist regime will intensify its efforts to get Joe Biden re-elected.
Election Interference…from China

They’ve undermined us in the Middle East. They’ve gained footholds further in the Asian Pacific regions. Everything has gone well for China from their foreign policy standpoint, and it’s gone poorly for us. So obviously, clearly, they want that to continue,” Radcliffe stated. “And so what, Maria, they’re going to do and what the acknowledgement is, is they’re going to intensify their efforts, meaning they’re going to deploy cyber weapons to try and influence, you know, election infrastructure. It means they’re going to engage in social media influence campaign to influence American voters, and they’re going to do the things that they can to help Joe Biden continue to be president because it is good for China if he is.”
