Default Biden learned new Chinese word: kowtow

Biden learned that his smiling, slap on the back style of politicing didn't fly well in China and that he had to kowtow or act in an excessively subservient manner when he met with the Chinese. He didn't think that he had to kowtow to anyone but his boss, but the Chinese have taught him that his wit and charm don't make him a great world leader respected by other world leaders.
