(DENVER) While Russia and Ukraine received the most attention during Tuesday’s  State of the Union address, China was also top of mind, mentioned four times during President Biden’s speech.

Ten months ago when Biden last addressed the Congress he mentioned China eight times.  “We’re in competition with China and other countries to win the 21st Century,” he said.

Here is a comparison of Biden’s two speeches, one in 2021 and the other in 2022, with respect to China.
