Biden calls Xi a dictator after talks on Taiwan, Fentanyl

US President Joe Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping agreed on Wednesday to open a presidential hotline, resume military-to-military communications and work to curb fentanyl production, showing tangible progress in their first face-to-face talks in a year. Simmering differences remain, however, particularly over Taiwan, while in a comment likely to irk the Chinese, Biden told reporters later that he had not changed his view that Xi is a dictator.
