While speaking during a CNN town hall in Wisconsin on Tuesday night, President Joe Biden described China’s genocide against the Uyghur Muslim population in the Xinjang province as a 'cultural norm.'

Biden said, "Chinese leaders, if you know anything about Chinese history, it has always been – the time when China has been victimized by the outer world is when they haven’t been unified at home," he begins before abruptly adding "vastly overstated."

The President continued by justifying the rationale of China’s President and Communist Party leader Xi Jinping. "The central principle of Xi Jinping is that there must be a united, tightening control in China, and he uses his rationale for the things he does based on that. I point out to him, no American president can be sustained as a president if he doesn’t reflect the values of the United States, and so the idea that I’m not going to speak out against what he’s doing in Hong Kong, what he’s doing with the Uyghurs in western mountains of China, and Taiwan, trying to end the One China Policy by making it forceful, I say, and by the he says, he gets it."

Biden added, "Culturally there are different norms in each country and their leaders are expected to follow."

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo officially declared China's treatment of Uyghurs in East Turkestan to be "crimes against humanity" and a "genocide" in January. "After careful examination of the available facts, I have determined that since at least March 2017, the People’s Republic of China (PRC), under the direction and control of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), has committed crimes against humanity against the predominantly Muslim Uyghurs and other members of ethnic and religious minority groups in Xinjiang," Pompeo said in a press release.

"In addition, after careful examination of the available facts, I have determined that the PRC, under the direction and control of the CCP, has committed genocide against the predominantly Muslim Uyghurs and other ethnic and religious minority groups in Xinjiang," the statement added.
