当地时间25日,美国总统拜登在白宫举行就任总统65天来的首场记者会,回应了一系列问题。

Convening his first formal news conference Thursday, U.S President Joe Biden stepped into a swirl of issues that have bubbled up at the two-month mark of his presidency.

因为疫情防控限制,发布会现场只有40名记者,全部佩戴口罩并且间隔就座。拜登佩戴口罩入场,然后摘掉口罩回答记者提问。

Only 40 reporters were permitted in the East Room for the news conference because of COVID-19 restrictions; all wore face masks and were seated apart. Biden entered the room wearing a mask and took it off to answer questions.

2亿剂疫苗接种目标

在提问前的开场白中,拜登率先提出美国新冠疫苗接种目标:将原来上任100天内达成1亿剂接种的任务“翻倍”,即100天内完成2亿剂接种。据CNBC网报道,拜登此前在12月8日设定了1亿剂的目标,并在其上任59天的时候完成。

Biden on Thursday announced a new goal of having 200 million Covid vaccination shots being distributed within his first 100 days in office. 100 million coronavirus vaccinations had been given since Biden was inaugurated. That benchmark — which Biden set as his original target Dec. 8 — was reached on his 59th day in office.

对此,拜登说“相信可以做到”。

“I believe we can do it,” Biden said.



不过,相比于在开场白时设定疫苗接种目标,美国媒体却发现在接下来的提问环节中,没有记者再提出有关疫情的问题。


 


《商业内幕》网站在报道中写道,这是拜登1月份就任以来的首场单独发布会,但是却没有一名记者提到新冠疫情的问题——考虑到美国每天仍然有数以万计的新增确诊病例,这些问题的缺席值得注意。 

During President Joe Biden's first solo press conference since taking office in January, not a single reporter asked a question about the coronavirus pandemic — a notable omission as the country continues to see tens of thousands of new cases each day.

计划2024年竞选连任

尽管刚于今年1月份就任美国总统,但是拜登在发布会上表达了对于2024年竞选连任的期待。

“我的计划是竞选连任,这是我的期望,”78岁的拜登成为就任美国总统时年龄最长者。他随后还说道,如果确实开启竞选,他还希望现任副总统卡马拉•哈里斯继续成为他的搭档。

"My plan is to run for reelection, that's my expectation," said Biden, who at age 78 is the oldest U.S. president when assuming office. Biden also said if he does run again, he expects Vice President Kamala Harris to be his running mate.

据CNN报道,美国前总统特朗普也是在第一任期刚开始时就宣布,将进行连任竞选。

Former U.S. President Trump had announced his plans for reelection soon after starting his first term.

拜登:不寻求与中国对抗,但中国“不会超过美国”

拜登在回答有关美中关系的提问时表示,尽管两国会有激烈竞争(steep competition),但美国不寻求与中国对抗(not looking for confrontation)。

拜登称,中国有总体目标,他不会批评这一目标,但是这一目标使中国“成为领导世界的国家,最富有的国家,最强大的国家。”拜登表示,“这些都不会在我的任期内发生,因为美国将持续发展增长。”

“China has an overall goal, and I don’t criticize them for the goal, but they have an overall goal to become the leading country in the world, the wealthiest country in the world, and the most powerful country in the world. That’s not going to happen on my watch because the United States are going to continue to grow and expand.”

当天,崔天凯大使在华盛顿接受美国有线电视新闻网(CNN)主持人阿曼普(Christiane Amanpour)连线采访。崔天凯指出:中国的发展目标很明确,就是满足中国人民日益增长的对美好生活的向往。中国的发展目标不是同任何其他国家竞争或者取代任何国家,这从来不是我们的国家战略。

As for China's development goal, we have our goal very clear. Our goal is to meet the growing aspiration of the Chinese people for a better life. Our goal is not to compete with or replace any other country. This is never our national strategy.

3月26日,外交部发言人华春莹在例行记者会上回答记者相关问题时表示:“你还问到美国不会让中国超越美国,中国的目标从来不是超越美国,而是不断超越自我成为更好的中国”。
