Biden is nuts. Legit, nuts.

Biden says he negotiated climate deal with long-dead Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping

By Ronn Blitzer | Fox News February 25, 2020:

Biden claims to have negotiated the 2016 Paris climate accord with Chinese leader who died in 1997

Former Vice President Joe Biden notched another gaffe Monday night in South Carolina when he discussed his experience negotiating the Paris Climate Agreement — with a Chinese leader who has been dead for decades.

Biden was detailing the fight against climate change when he told an audience at the College of Charleston about his Obama administration-era work on the Paris deal, only to mix up the names of Chinese heads of state in the process.


“I’m the guy that came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China would join if we put pressure on them,” Biden said.

The Trump campaign quickly pointed out the error.

The Paris agreement was drafted in late 2015 and adopted in 2016. Deng Xiaoping — who infamously presided over the government’s deadly crackdown on the Tiananmen Square protests — retired in 1992 and died in 1997. Biden was likely referring to Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Biden’s campaign did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

At another point during the same speech, an impassioned Biden tripped over his words while calling for gun control.

“Who in God’s name needs a hundred rounds in a bullet, in a clip, with a gun you have?”
