The cognitively deficient President is reportedly unhappy with his own country’s handling of the military invasion in Ukraine.
Joe Biden reportedly told two top officials to tone down their rhetoric about Ukraine in the Russia-Ukraine war, saying the U.S. should not publicly announce they wanted a Ukrainian win.
However, with the authorization of nearly $6 billion in aid to Ukraine, it’s pretty obvious to anyone paying attention to which country in Eastern Europe the U.S. strongly supports.
Both Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Secretary of State Antony Blinken caught the ire of Joe Biden when they both publicly claimed the U.S. wanted Ukraine to “win” the war against Russia.
Biden called the pair after the comments were made and expressed concern that they had said too much, NBC reported Thursday, citing multiple unnamed administration officials.
The president was worried the rhetoric condoning an explicit win over Russia could set unrealistic expectations and push the U.S. into the conflict, according to the outlet.
Push the United States into conflict?! The U.S. is already knee-deep in major conflict with Russia. If Biden believes that funding Ukraine’s war machine will do nothing to anger Russian President Vladimir Putin, then he’s dead wrong.
The secretaries told Biden their comments had been misunderstood, a different administration official reportedly told the outlet.
U.S. officials are talking about whether Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s position — to not cede any territory to Russia — is possible if he wants to end the war, NBC reported, citing seven current and former U.S. officials and European officials.
French President Emanuel Macron said Wednesday that Ukraine must be willing to negotiate with Russia.
Meanwhile, Biden announced an additional $1.2 billion in aid for Ukraine Wednesday.
Military aid paid for by the American taxpayer continues to pour into Ukraine as we face unrelenting economic hardship at home. Massive inflationary spending has resulted in an economy barreling toward recession just as the American people unthaw from two years of pandemic life.
Regardless of how the Biden administration proceeds, whether we want Ukraine to “win” the war against Russia is a moot point given our willingness to bankrupt our own economy to ensure it happens.
