image for Biden offers to brief Trump team on Chinese spy balloons they failed to catch

The Biden administration has offered to brief former Donald Trump officials about the Chinese spy balloons that they failed to catch during his administration.

The Pentagon announced on Saturday that three suspected Chinese surveillance balloons travelled over the continental US during Mr Trump’s time in office.

None of the balloons were shot down and the American people were not made aware of the situation.

A fourth balloon also reportedly entered US airspace earlier on in the Biden administration.

“We enhanced our capacity to be able to detect things that the Trump administration was unable to detect,” he added.

Now, a senior Biden administration official has revealed that the Trump administration wasn’t even aware of the three potential surveillance balloons at the time.

Instead, they were only discovered after Mr Biden took office from the one-term, twice-impeached Mr Trump. »

Democratic Senators Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut introduced the "passenger bill of rights," which would require airlines to pay passengers at least $1,350 if they're denied boarding because of an oversold flight.

"If passengers could receive 1,350 bucks whenever their flight is delayed by four hours, I am guaranteeing you there'd be a lot fewer delays," Blumenthal said.

At the airport, they learned their flight was canceled and that it would be days before Southwest could find them another flight. »
