2020 candidate Joe Biden had yet another one of his classic gaffes, this time claiming he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping.
Deng Xiaoping died in 1997. The Paris Climate deal was drafted in 2015.
One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord
I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.
Social media users were quick to mock Biden for the epic gaffe.
@JoeBiden’s Presidential run certainly is dead.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.
Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.
