President Joe Biden delivered a series of flubs along with his Tuesday remarks before the United Nations, saying at one point that he planned to pursue a partnership with China aimed at “accelerating the climate crisis.”

Biden’s speech before the General Assembly was designed to rally the world to support Ukraine against Russia’s continuing onslaught — and to rally some in Congress who have grown audibly weary of sending money to Ukraine without assurances detailing where those funds are being spent — but a series of gaffes and flubs dogged him throughout.

In one such instance, the president struggled to get through a sentence: “Simply put, the 21st century – 21st century results … are badly needed … to move us along. That starts with the United Nations.”


Biden later hinted at the United States’ relationship with China going forward, suggesting that deference to Beijing would be the prevailing policy position.

“When it comes to China, let me be clear and consistent. We seek to responsibly manage competition between our countries so it does not tip into conflict. I’ve said we are for de-risking — not decoupling — with China,” he said.



Biden went on to say that an ongoing relationship with the communist-controlled nation was necessary, particularly with regard to climate change.

Promising to “work together with China on issues where progress hinges on our common efforts,” adding, “Nowhere is that more critical than accelerating the climate crisis – than the accelerating climate crisis.”


As Biden continued to speak, however, there were times when it simply appeared that his teleprompter got the best of him.


In addition to his focus on climate and on continued aid for Ukraine, President Biden touted democracy as the basis from which he believed those and other global problems could be addressed.

“We will not retreat from the values that make us strong. We will defend democracy — our best tool to meet the challenges that we face around the world,” he said. “And we’re working to show how democracy can deliver in ways that matter to people’s lives.”
