Video: Xi, Biden Shake Hands In Bali – The Body Language Of Xi When They Stopped Shaking Hands Is Very Telling

US President Joe Biden and Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping shook hands at the start of their high-stakes summit in Bali, Indonesia on Tuesday.

Biden and Xi are among the heads of state attending the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia, from November 15 to 16. Having met multiple times as vice presidents of their respective countries, their meeting on the sidelines of the event is their first in person as leaders.

Footage showed the two presidents greeting one another in front of the international press, posing for photographs inside a conference room before sitting down across from each other with large entourages of interpreters and senior advisers.

The body language of Xi when they stopped shaking hands is very telling.

And his face really says it all!

Biden and Xi walked toward each other from opposite sides of a hotel lobby and shook hands in front of a row of US and Chinese flags just after 5:30 p.m. local time.

Watch the video below:

The respect for Biden on the world stage is gone!

But sadly our country’s reputation is also on the line!

The two leaders’ talks Monday may last only a few hours, but could have consequences stretching months or even years as the world’s largest economies veer toward increasingly hostile relations.

“The world has come to a crossroads,” Xi said vowing a “candid” discussion of issues that have riven relations between the world’s two leading powers.

“The world expects that China and the United States will properly handle the relationship,” he said.

For his part, Biden greeted Xi with a smile that belied the growing competition between the nation that has defined the last century and a rival that seeks to define the next one.

Biden said he wanted the United States and China to “manage our differences, prevent competition from becoming conflict.”

The moments spent together on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit here will amount to only a fraction of the time the two men have been in each other’s company since 2011. Biden has claimed that as vice president, he spent north of 70 hours with Xi and traveled 17,000 miles with him across China and the United States – both exaggerations, but still reflective of a relationship that is now perhaps the most important on the planet.

I'm shrewd, passionate, learned and energetic, God-fearing and patriotic. I've done a fine job reintroducing good old American conservatism to a new generation of Americans. I've earned the love and friendship of many, the hatred of some, but the respect of all.

It looks like FJB put his good teeth in for this meeting. Xi could care less and just wanted to finish the charade and get back to his bowl of hot and sour soup. Goin’ through the motions with a moron.

It looked like Joe sniffed his hand after he shook Xi’s.

Notice who walks up to whom. Notice who extends their hand first. It looks like Joe checking in with his boss. I bet if his boss told a joke in Chinese Biden would laugh.

It is very telling. Biden looks like a frail little man trying to look normal next to Xi. I am truly sorry for patriotic Americans who must deal with this embarrassment of a Biden government. Living to the north of the U.S., I am frightened by what the decomposition of the U.S. means to the security of our hemisphere. The next two years will be very telling and I pray that we all get through them with our health and sanity intact. Peace!

Joe walked the entire length of the stage with his hand out. He’s like Mr. Burns.
