Biden: US will ‘take care’ of suspected China spy balloon
WASHINGTON — US President Joe Biden promises “to take care” of a suspected Chinese spy balloon flying over the United States, an incident that further strained ties with Beijing.
Asked by reporters to comment on relations with China and the balloon incident, Biden told reporters Saturday, “We’re gonna take care of it.”
He did not elaborate.
The controversy erupted Thursday, when American officials said they were tracking a large Chinese “surveillance balloon” in US skies, but decided not to shoot it down over concerns of hurting people or property on the ground.
