It comes as no surprise to conservatives but it appears the questions posed to Biden by reporters, were pre-selected and arranged.
Chris Wallace of Fox News said after the conference that he was “struck by the fact that it seemed on every foreign policy question, not the others, but on foreign policy, he went to his briefing book like Jen Psaki does sometimes in the briefings, and was reading obviously White House guidance, White House talking points.”
“Covering Ronald Reagan for six years, I never saw that,” Wallace continued. “Watching a lot of news conferences over the years, I’ve never seen that — a president in a news conference reading talking points. He did that on, it seemed, every foreign policy question.”

To Prove that Biden’s questions and answers were pre-arranged, a photo was taken revealing that the President has a list of reporters with certain reports from liberal organizations circled in numerical order.
Biden numbered the reporters.

Trump called the press conference and a recent diplomatic spat with china “An Absolute Embarrassment.,” during an interview with Fox News.
He said: “It was like softballs like you are throwing softballs up, and it’s just a different world. Nobody has seen anything like it. You know it. You know it better than anybody. You cover it so well. And it’s very sad to watch, actually, they are feeding him questions. They are easy questions. I noticed Peter Doocy didn’t get to ask a question today.”
“And there could be no difficult questions. And they were ready to rip the microphone away if somebody did get a little bit testy,” Trump added. “You know, he just, look, the whole thing is ridiculous. You know it, and so do I.”
“China ends up delivering this major rebuke to the United States, to our faces, essentially saying that we have no standing to lecture them because of our own issues of racism that have been perpetually parroted by Democrats,” Fox News host Laura Ingraham said. “Did the Chinese ever lecture you or your people about America’s racism problem?”
“We never had anything like that happen. That was an embarrassment. It was an absolute embarrassment to our country,” Trump responded. “I could not believe it. I couldn’t believe the meeting. Even the location. So many different elements of what took place when they started and they went on and on and on.”
Trump added how the Chinse always treated his team with respect:
“Nobody ever talked to my group that way. Nobody ever talked to me that way. I can tell you that,” Trump said. “And if they did, I would have doubled up the tariffs, which frankly, were something we probably should have done anyway.”
