The Biden administration provided intelligence information to China in the hopes of getting their help to stop Russia from invading Ukraine.
China rejected the diplomatic effort and instead gave the U.S. intelligence to Russia, according to The New York Times.
After one diplomatic exchange in December, U.S. officials got intelligence showing Beijing had shared the information with Moscow, telling the Russians that the United States was trying to sow discord — and that China would not try to impede Russian plans and actions, the officials said.
The result of this failed diplomatic effort shows the growing alliance between Russia and China that creates a big challenge for the U.S. going forward.
Biden ignored a question about trying to get help from China during a press briefing about Ukraine.

Biden’s critics pounced on the failed effort to stop the invasion.
China and Russia have been preparing for this weak American Commander-in-Chief for decades.
While Biden’s party kowtowed to woke progressives, the world’s anti-democratic imperialist regimes became emboldened to invade and conquer sovereign nations.

Critics also commented on Biden’s weak response to the Russian invasion.
1) Biden still weak on sanctions 2) nothing on building up conventional and strategic deterrence which is vital 3) nothing energy independence which is key, 4) nothing on punishing China for its support of Putin. Weak!!! https://t.co/ruyC2Kkq71

Biden and his team are proving once again they are failing the U.S. on the world stage.
It was foolish to think China would side with the U.S. over Russia.
Biden failed in Afghanistan and now he is falling with the Russian invasion.
