Biden Again Vows US Forces Would Defend Taiwan If China Invades

President Joe Biden issued a surprisingly blunt response when asked in a CBS “60 Minutes” interview what the US reaction would be if China decided to invade Taiwan.

Biden answered “yes” when asked whether American forces would defend the self-ruled island if it came under Chinese military invasion. “Yes, if, in fact, there was an unprecedented attack,” he said in a sit-down with Scott Pelley, which aired in full Sunday night.
