Joe Biden has “been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
Although I wholeheartedly agree, these are not my words. These are the words of the man who served as the Secretary of Defense under the Obama Administration, Robert Gates. Gates, a respected man who also served as the Director of the CIA under Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, wrote these words in his memoir and then re-affirmed them when asked directly.
The man who dedicated his entire career to defending the US from all enemies foreign and domestic, and worked directly with Joe Biden for his first term in the White House, believes Biden is a failure when it comes to foreign policy.
I could not agree more.
Yet, Democrats want you and I to believe that Joe Biden is the man to lead us on foreign policy. They claim not only that he knows the right path forward, but that he will accomplish more than President Donald Trump. But, with such a fraught record and such ringing endorsements from his former Secretary of Defense, I’m not convinced.
In regards to foreign policy, President Trump has already achieved in 4 short years what many in the Obama Administration believed to be impossible.
I mean, who can forget the timeless words of former Secretary of State John Kerry about peace and Israel? Kerry so famously said, “there will be no advanced and separate peace with the Arab world without the Palestinian process and Palestinian peace. Everybody needs to understand that.”
Yet, in just 4 short years, President Trump has achieved just that, while keeping his promise and moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. A promise that many had made before him, but failed to actually keep.
Through bold vision, intelligent plans and near perfect execution President Trump has done, time and time again, what the Obama Administration believed to be impossible.
Not only this, but President Trump has re-established the American ideal of peace through strength. A seemingly basic, yet fundamental, cornerstone of lasting peace that Joe Biden threatens to erode.
Earlier this year Axios reported that, “The Biden team wants to elevate diplomacy and de-emphasize the military as an instrument of national power.” Translation? Joe Biden wants to weaken our military and rely more on his own words, which as of late, haven’t been the most clear or convincing, to put it politely.
But, despite Biden’s plans to weaken our national defense, the advocate for endless wars is insistent that “we are going to be back in the game,” referring to the Obama Administration's disastrous foreign policy.
A comment which former NFL star and now Congressman-elect Burgess Owens took offense to, saying:
“It’s not a ‘game,’ more foreign wars isn’t a ‘game’ we’re not in… Regardless of party we should be grateful for the first time in a long time a president didn’t start more foreign wars. The sensible foreign policy of President Trump should be praised more.”
And Congressman-elect Owens couldn’t be more right. Along with creating peace between Israel and the Arab world, President Trump has defeated ISIS, officially ended the Korean War, withdrawn from the awful Iran nuclear deal, made European nations pay for their own defense, freed nearly 50 Americans who had been detained overseas and so much more.
In short, President Trump has achieved lasting peace through strength. A Biden Presidency threatens to take us back to an era of endless wars and sending pallets of cash to hostile foreign nations. What could possibly go wrong?
