Following the breaking news story that reportedly as many as three Chinese spy balloons flew within the continental United States, with one reported to have crashed in Hawaii, over the course of former President Donald Trump’s time in office, the Biden administration is walking back these claims.
New reports are showing that Trump was not made aware of these breaches in the skies of the United States, as these Chinese spy balloons went undetected at the time, therefor Trump was never made aware of the Chinese spying efforts.
According to Fox News:
Information suggesting that Chinese spy balloons traveled over the continental United States during the Trump administration was “discovered after” former President Donald Trump left office, a senior administration official told Fox News.
A defense official on Saturday said Chinese spy balloons briefly traveled over the United States at least three times during the Trump administration.
“PRC (People’s Republic of China) government surveillance balloons transited the continental U.S. briefly at least three times during the prior administration and once that we know of at the beginning of this administration, but never for this duration of time.”
The official told Fox News that “this information was discovered after the [Trump] administration left.”
“They went undetected,” the official told Fox News Digital.
U.S. officials are confirming that another Chinese spy balloon is confirmed to have entered the United States, and crossed through parts of Florida and Texas before eventually crashing in Hawaii four months ago. This marks another Chinese spy balloon that Biden was once again hesitant to shoot down.
This news comes after the latest Chinese spy balloon made its way through the continental United States, and Biden was informed last Saturday about the situation. However, Biden waited until a full week after to shoot the balloon down, as it crossed over the Atlantic ocean and had presumably gathered any information it needed from the United States.
The media and left-wing commentators are attempting to shift the blame for previous Chinese sky balloons onto former-President Donald Trump, for an alleged three spy balloons having flown over the continental U.S. during his Presidency. While only one balloon is confirmed to have entered during Trump’s presidency, some are reporting as many as three balloons may have crossed through the continental U.S. during this time.
Trump and other top security officials from his time as President have responded to the claims, adding that, “This never happened. It would have never happened,” Trump told Fox News Digital on Sunday morning, adding that Beijing “respected us greatly” under his leadership.
“It never happened with us under the Trump administration and if it did, we would have shot it down immediately,” Trump said. “It’s disinformation.”
Of course, Donald Trump wasn’t behind any airspace tracking systems during his time as President, and any message of foreign planes, jets, or aircraft would have come from security advisors, including the Pentagon and U.S. airforce. Without the necessary information from security advisors about foreign spy balloons entering the country, Trump would be unable to appropriately respond to the situation.
Biden is the liar in chief.
How do we permit Intelligence agencies to keep vital information from the President?
Intelligence Agencies ? Hey you must remember , these are Democrats , there is nothing intelligent in any thing they claim . They don’t even lie well , just lie and lie again .
It would be treason, and require firing squads to be formed
if this happened during President Trump’s time we would most everyone in the US would have probably seen them even if was just once we would have heard about it, there was no such warning ever
