Biden’s weakness in the face of global threats puts American lives at risk. There is no doubt about it. Not for decades has there been a president in the White House with so little global authority and who would concede ground to those who want to destroy the United States.
This week the tyrant of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, announced together with the Iranian Vice Minister Mohsen Kousheshtabar, that he would cede more than two million acres to the regime of the ayatollahs. In other words, Iran will now have thousands of kilometers in Venezuela for its operations, which in this agreement are disguised under the supposed intention of developing Iran’s food industry.
Iran is a terrorist autocracy and has financed attacks throughout the world. Beyond that, it is Israel’s greatest threat and a clear enemy of the United States. Most importantly, it is developing nuclear weapons (although the world prefers to look the other way). Iran’s presence in the Americas should not be taken lightly. This is a major foreign policy defeat for Joe Biden.
Venezuela is a little more than 1,000 miles from Miami. The ayatollahs today have a presence in Venezuela. Iran is a little more than 1,000 miles from Miami. This is very, very serious. And to this we must add the fact that China is increasingly expanding its presence in Latin America. The backyard of the United States is invaded by those who dream of seeing New York or Los Angeles burn.
And it is not that Biden should lead the United States to be the world’s sheriff. Trump’s exemplary foreign policy is a perfect showcase that America First is possible, without handing the world over to the bad guys. Trump prioritized America, but he was also blunt against his enemies. Let us remember that it was his administration that blew up Soleimani, killed al-Baghdadi, sanctioned Maduro, lifted the agreements with Iran, isolated Cuba and set out to contain China. Biden has taken it upon himself to reverse everything and the world is more dangerous today.
