Joe Biden is under fire for saying China has “different norms” while discussing Beijing’s human rights abuse. On Tuesday, he seemed to downplay the aggression in Hong Kong as well as the persecution of Uighur Muslims by saying there are “different norms for different countries.”

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called out Biden for engaging in Chinese propaganda while noting he’s trying to rationalize what should be labeled as a genocide.

Other political figures such as Boris Epshteyn, a former strategic adviser for President Trump, called Biden’s comments horrible. Epshteyn said Biden continues to disguise it as cultural differences.

Meanwhile, the White House issued multiple statements asserting the administration will hold Beijing accountable for it’s abuses.
