Joe Biden’s response to Russian aggression has been a complete and total EMBARRASSMENT.
His administration has continued to enable, or even encourage, Putin’s goals for expansion. The only thing Biden has even publicly done to discourage him is sanctions.
Now, he’s claiming that “no-one expected sanctions to prevent anything from happening.”
Well, if that’s the case, why on earth did the president continue to address the nation and repeatedly state that these sanctions were a necessary sacrifice TO STOP RUSSIAN AGGRESSION?
His lame excuse directly contradicts the statements he and his administration made about them!
Let’s not forget, Kamala Harris told us directly that “The purpose of the sanctions has always been, and continues to be deterrence.”
National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan told us “The president believes that sanctions are intended to deter.”
Secretary of State Blinken also continued this narrative, saying “As to the sanctions, the most important thing we can do is to use them as a deterrent.”
Pretending that he KNEW sanctions wouldn’t stop the aggression is a LIE.
Biden continues to prove he cannot be trusted to lead in times of conflict.
