More Humiliation: Middle East Power Brokers Shut Biden Out
Biden’s foreign policy is crumbling and now power brokers in the Middle East just shut Biden out.
Recently, Biden begged OPEC to increase production after he decided to cut US oil production causing fuel prices to go through the roof.
Now, OPEC is telling him to take a hike.

In just seven months no one respects America anymore.
Perhaps the best example of Biden’s incompetence was his July 8th press conference which will likely be remembered as one of the most devastating press conferences in US history.
Everything Biden said wouldn’t happen did.
“So the question now is, where do they go from here?” Biden said during a July 8 press conference. “The jury is still out. But the likelihood there’s going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely.”
Below is a partial transcript of questions Biden took from the press after his remarks on July 8th, 2021
Q Mr. President — do you trust the Taliban, Mr. President?
Q Is a Taliban takeover of Afghanistan now inevitable?
THE PRESIDENT: No, it is not.
THE PRESIDENT: Because you — the Afghan troops have 300,000 well-equipped — as well-equipped as any army in the world — and an air force against something like 75,000 Taliban. It is not inevitable.
Q Mr. President, thank you very much. Your own intelligence community has assessed that the Afghan government will likely collapse.
THE PRESIDENT: That is not true.
Q Is it — can you please clarify what they have told you about whether that will happen or not?
THE PRESIDENT: That is not true. They did not — they didn’t — did not reach that conclusion.
This may become the most infamous — and devastating — press conference ever held by an American President. pic.twitter.com/j4kKwyPDVm

Over the weekend most of Afghanistan has fallen into Taliban control as well as the capitol city.

Below is a video clip of Secretary of State Blinken stating that the country would never fall in 3-4 days.
“When Pres. Biden made the decision in April, the absolute worst-case scenario was the govt. would collapse within 3-4 months of the withdrawal,” @CBSDavidMartin says of Afghanistan. “The withdrawal, for all intents & purposes, was done on July 4. So even the worst case was off.” pic.twitter.com/yhgalKVG8u

Most Americans believed it was time to leave Afghanistan but no American wanted for us to leave like this.
Trump had a great plan to leave Afghanistan and the Taliban knew if they messed with Trump they would end up like General Soleimani.
Biden owns 100% of this!
So Biden’s promise to withdraw from Afghanistan by date certain will likely be foiled by Biden’s own incompetence in planning said withdrawal. #facepalm
