Biden’s Feckless Foreign Policy in a Nutshell. Negotiating with adversaries from a position of weakness.
Biden’s foreign policy doctrine in dealing with America’s adversaries is simple: Appease or concede first and then try to negotiate.
Take Iran, for example. Former President Donald Trump had the Iranian regime on the ropes with his maximum pressure policy of increasing economic sanctions until the regime blinked. But when Biden came into office, he blinked first.
Biden is extremely anxious to reenter the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The Biden administration sent signals that it was willing to negotiate the lifting of some economic sanctions in concert with Iran’s steps to reverse course and reduce its uranium enrichment to levels in compliance with the JCPOA. Biden all but begged for the U.S. to be indirectly involved in negotiations between Iran and the other remaining JCPOA participants - China, Russia, Germany, France, and the United Kingdom. Iran's delegation was meeting with representatives from these five countries in the same room, while messages were sent back and forth with U.S. representatives sitting separately at a different location.
DeSantis on VP List if Trump Runs in 2024. President Donald Trump has said that he is "100%" thinking about running for reelection in 2024 and that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) would "certainly" be considered as his running mate.
President Trump discusses plans for next presidential run and potential platform.
The 45th president made the comments during a Thursday interview on Fox News's "Mornings with Maria."
During the exclusive interview with host Maria Bartiromo, Trump blasted Biden for excluding the border crisis from his address.
"He didn’t discuss the border," Trump told Bartiromo when asked what "struck" him about Biden’s speech on Wednesday night.
Trump pointed out that "tens of thousands of people are pouring into our country" at "a level that has never been seen before."
He noted that those "pouring into" the U.S. include criminals and that the Biden administration "is doing absolutely nothing" to stop them.
"It’s out of control," Trump said, warning that if the situation continues "it will destroy our country."
Biden has scrapped a number of President Trump’s immigration policies, which included the construction of the border wall and having asylum seekers remain in Mexico instead of staying in the U.S. while they wait for their cases to be heard.
The moves have led to a record surge in migrants, including unaccompanied minors, that has strained capacity at immigration facilities in recent weeks.
"They have to finish the wall," Trump stressed.
He noted that the border wall "would have been completed if I didn’t get sued by Congress and the Democrats every single moment."
Trump also pointed out that the "Remain in Mexico" policy was "a great thing," but the Biden administration "gave it up" and "now everyone is pouring into our country."
"The border has to be brought back to where I had it," Trump stressed on Thursday.
"We had it the best in the history of our country."
He also blasted Biden’s energy policies, noting that the U.S. was energy independent for the first time and "we’re not going to be energy independent in a couple of months."
According to a study from the State Department, 26,100 indirect and direct jobs would have come from the Keystone XL pipeline project, through its construction and supply chain that provides lodging, food, and health care to workers in small towns across several states.
In response, Biden’s newly appointed "climate czar,"John Kerry, pitched a new vision of a green economy, where many of the laid-off workers "can be the people to go to work to make the solar panels" as reported by Yahoo news.
Biden also temporarily suspended the issuance of oil and gas permits on federal lands and waters in a series of orders aimed at combating climate change.
DOJ Corrupt Double Standard: R. Giuliani vs H. Biden.
Rudy Giuliani’s attorney accused the Department of Justice (DOJ) of a “corrupt double standard” by executing a search warrant against Giuliani on suspicion of failing to register as a foreign agent, while allegedly ignoring “clear evidence” on a laptop purporting to belong to Hunter Biden that would support similar allegations and an investigation.
Federal investigators early on April 28 executed search warrants at the home and office of Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and attorney to former President Donald Trump, and seized electronic devices, Bob Costello, Giuliani’s attorney, confirmed in a statement.
Costello said the devices seized by investigators at Giuliani’s office are “replete with material covered by the attorney-client privilege,” and complained that their seizure amounted to a “disturbing example of complete disregard” for the constitutionally protected privilege.
