Biden Says He ‘Didn’t Come to Explain a Damn Thing’ to China

Vice President Joe Biden said he “didn’t come to explain a damn thing” on his visit to China, adding that the country’s economy had become the world’s second biggest due to the stabilizing presence of U.S. troops in Asia.

Some media had suggested the purpose of his trip to China was to “explain our economic situation,” Biden told U.S. troops at Yokota airbase in Japan today. “I didn’t come to explain a damn thing.”
