Joe Biden is about to have another foreign policy disaster on his hands.
China has dominated this administration at every front.
However, this latest move will lock Biden down as the worst president in history if it comes to fruition.

Reports broke this weekend that China is looking at Equatorial Guinea’s port city of Bata for a possible base.
The China Road & Bridge Co. did significant upgrades to the port when Barack Obama was in office.
US intelligence is now reporting that this is the spot the Chinese are eyeing up to extend their reach into the Atlantic.
Tensions are already running high between the two countries, and this will only serve to elevate that tension even further.
Biden administration officials have paid President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo a visit already for the purpose of trying to keep the deal at bay.
During that visit, an administration official stated that they “made clear to Equatorial Guinea that certain potential steps involving [Chinese] activity there would raise national-security concerns.”
Gen. Stephen Townsend, the commander of U.S. Africa Command, has called establishing such a base the “most significant threat” from China.
Rightly so, this is “setting off alarm bells at the White House and Pentagon.”
There is no other way to describe this other than a complete disaster for Biden if the Chinese are able to secure terms and break ground on a new base while Biden is in office.
