Joe Biden was speaking at the Summit of the Americas on Thursday.
As we’ve already noted, it hasn’t been going well. Biden stumbled up the stairs as he was boarding Air Force One for Los Angeles.
Then, Biden was met by a protester rushing the motorcade who had to be subdued. Meanwhile, a lot of the countries didn’t show up because of the poor way that the Biden team dealt with the event.
While objecting to the human rights violations of Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela is a good thing and we should encourage that, how weak is it if we’re giving the Northern Triangle countries $1.9 billion and they can’t even show up to the event in our country? On top of that, as Obama global engagement director Brett Bruen explains, the invites went out very late and it’s not even clear what “deliverables” are supposed to be coming out of this event. He calls it a “catastrophic failure” on the part of the Biden Administration.
“Disaster on the world stage for Joe Biden – Saudi Arabia, Israel and now Mexico all snub Biden within the last 24 hours alone,” said former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, who was an ambassador to Germany. “They all see what we see,” he added.
But that wasn’t the end of our embarrassment!
A video surfaced from the event where everyone ignores Joe and no one wants to talk to him!
On Monday, Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador confirmed he will not attend the Summit of the Americas later this week. This is a diplomatic debacle among alarming reports of a U.S.-Mexico border surge that is flooding the nation with asylum-seekers and illegal immigrants.
“The event is hosted by President Joe Biden and will in part focus on the migration crisis,” the Daily Caller reported. “Lopez Obrador previously threatened to boycott the event if the Biden administration excluded Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua, according to Reuters.”
Well, when El Salvador — to whom we are giving a ton of money — wouldn’t even take Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s call and even the New York Times is writing about it, you know it’s a debacle.
These are the adults who were supposed to be in charge? These are the people who claim they’re improving our relationships around the world? They have no idea what the heck they are doing on any given subject.
Unfortunately, this is one of those events where Biden is expected to make remarks. Once again, it seemed to be Biden vs. the teleprompter and his confusion.
