He paid the price for saying that…
Recently, Joe Biden decided to attack President Trump after alleged reports came out that Russian military intelligence had placed bounties on U.S. soldiers.
Biden said, “He either reads, and, or gets briefed on important issues, and he forgets it, or he doesn’t think it’s necessary that he need to know it. He should, at a minimum, have picked up the phone and said, Vladimir, old buddy, if any of this is true and it doesn’t cease immediately, you’ve got a big problem.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo decided to retaliate stating, “I only wish former Vice President Biden had held the Russians accountable. We’d have been cleaning up a lot less of a mess. I wish he’d provided arms to the Ukrainians. I wish he had gotten out of the INF treaty. I wish he hadn’t allowed and invited the Syrians – the Russians into Syria.”
“I could go on, but you’ve got a short show. The failures of the previous administration allowed the Russians a lot of space to move. We’ve pushed back. We’ve sanctioned more Russians than any other administration in history. I’ll take a backseat to no one with respect to what our administration and President Trump has done to hold Vladimir Putin accountable when he’s engaged in malign activity.”
Biden probably wasn’t expecting such a beat down, but going after Trump was definitely not a good idea. Read the whole story here.
