Jaws Drop Over Biden’s Response To Nuke Treaty – WATCH
The recent trip to Ukraine and Poland by President Joe Biden was nothing more than a charade, according to critics on the right. The President‘s incoherence and incompetence have been on full display throughout his first months in office, and this trip was no different.
Russia was notified in advance of Biden‘s visit, ensuring that they would not do anything that could put him in danger. However, while there were no Russian missiles or airstrikes, an air raid siren went off when Biden and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky were walking down the street. This has led some on the left to try to paint Biden as a brave statesman.

Others have gone even further, claiming that if it weren‘t for Biden, Ukraine would be part of Russia and the NATO alliance would be destroyed. This assertion is demonstrably false, given that Russia did not invade Ukraine during Donald Trump‘s presidency, which was preceded by Obama/Biden‘s invasion of Ukraine and their reluctance to provide Ukraine with weapons. Trump provided Ukraine with weapons, while Biden lifted sanctions on Nord Stream 2 and gave a signal that “minor incursions“ might be acceptable.
The peace accords brought forward by Trump were replaced by a disastrous pullout, new wars, and emboldened enemies/antagonists under Biden. This was followed by Biden‘s failure to shoot down a Chinese spy balloon, which has led to China talking about strengthening ties with Russia.

When Russia announced that they were withdrawing from START, Biden responded with a smirk, saying “I don‘t have time.” This was met with criticism from Republicans, who argued that this was not an appropriate response to Russia‘s blatant disregard for the United States.

Overall, it seems that Biden‘s trip to Ukraine and Poland was nothing more than a desperate attempt to boost his image as a capable leader. Unfortunately, his behavior during this trip has led many to question his ability to lead the United States now more than ever.
