Visit to wind power tower manufacturing CS Wind
Emphasis on economic policy performance despite low approval rating
“Korean leader Mr. Moon” may make a mistake

U.S. President Joe Biden visits the factory of CS Wind, the world’s largest wind turbine tower manufacturer, in Pueblo, Colorado, on the 29th of last month and talks with workers.

U.S. President Joe Biden, who is running for re-election next year, visited the world’s largest wind power plant built by Korea’s CS Wind in Colorado and began promoting the results of his economic policy, ‘Bidenomics’. At this event, President Biden strongly criticized former President Donald Trump and opposition Republican hardliners, who pledged to abolish the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), a key policy of Bidennomics.

According to Reuters on the 29th of last month, President Biden visited the Pueblo, Colorado factory of CS Wind, a wind turbine tower manufacturer, and said, “Thanks to my ‘Made in America’ pledge, clean energy companies have begun investing in Colorado.” “CS Wind built all of its wind towers overseas, but decided to build them in the U.S. as well,” he said. This is President Biden’s second visit to a Korean company in the United States since taking office, following the SK Siltron plant in Bay City, Michigan in November of last year, and it was all part of a campaign to highlight the achievements of Bidenomics.

President Biden also said to Korean Ambassador to the U.S. Cho Hyun-dong, who accompanied him to the site, “I am very happy that the successful cases of Korean companies such as CS Wind investing (in the U.S.) symbolize the recent Korea-U.S. relationship.” At the same time, he said, “President Yoon Seok-yeol is a good friend,” and joked, “I hope U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken, who is good at singing, will visit Korea and sing a song.” This is a reminder of the fact that President Yoon passionately sang Don McClain’s ‘American Pie’ at a White House dinner during his state visit to the United States in April of this year.

President Biden, who has relatively refrained from ‘negative campaigning’ so far, has recently increased the level of his offensive against the Republican Party amid low approval ratings. He called Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert, who had a district in Pueblo but voted against the IRA, “one of the leaders of the extreme MAGA (hard-core Trump supporters).” He criticized former President Trump and the Republican Party, saying, “They are committed to tax cuts for the top class.”

President Biden, who is 81 years old this year and faces ‘senior risk,’ made a mistake with his words again on this day. During his speech, he pointed to CS Wind Chairman Kim Sung-kwon and said, “I am friends with your leader ‘Mr. Moon.’” They mistook the South Korean president for former President Moon Jae-in. He also emphasized America’s competitiveness, saying, “I said to Deng Xiaoping in the Himalayas, ‘Betting against Americans is never a good thing.'” It appears that Chinese President Xi Jinping was confused with Deng Xiaoping, China’s former top leader who died in 1997.
