Joe Biden: Trump Made America an ‘Embarrassment’

Biden treated the international conference as an opportunity to bash the United States under Trump’s leadership.

Speaking at the annual Munich Security Conference in Germany on Saturday, former Vice President Joe Biden said that the state of his country was an “embarrassment” due to President Trump.

Biden took it upon himself to speak for the American people broadly in objection to President Trump’s immigration polices- ironically, in reference to child separation policies that existed under the Obama administration for which he was Vice President.

The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border… The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment.”

The potential 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate went to describe what he perceived as a “lack of leadership on the other side of the Atlantic.”

Traditionally, prominent American politicians speaking at international events such as the Munich Security Conference have precluded domestic politics. But that didn’t stop Biden from giving a sharply political speech in which he denounced the American President to the crowd.

The Munich Security Conference is known for attracting an elitist crowd of establishment liberals, neoconservatives, and wealthy oligarchs, and a major speaker at this year’s conference was outgoing German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who denounced President Trump’s America First trade policies.

Former Arizona Senator and staunch pro-war advocate John McCain had been a regular patron of the event.

The event is structured for political elites across the west to congratulate themselves and denounce rising populist nationalist movements for usurping what they see as their right to govern. Yet, self-satisfied elites such as Biden generally approach the event with the false assumption the individuals present are broadly representative of the general public of their respective nations.

Many would be just as embarrassed as Biden to see the former Vice President of the United States speak disparagingly about his own country at an international event, if they considered the annual globalist gathering worthy of any consideration.

At Least 40 Americans Infected With Coronavirus Aboard Quarantined Cruise Ship

They will be treated in hospitals in Japan.

Published

on

At least 40 Americans aboard a cruise ship have been infected with the coronavirus, in a development that suggest the dangerous disease may transmit more rapidly than the public in the western world realizes.

Immunologist Anthony Fauci, an official with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, confirmed that 40 Americans had been diagnosed with the disease in an appearance on 60 Minutes Sunday.

Some reporting indicates that even more people have been infected with the disease, with figures ranging up to 355. These estimates include passengers of all nationalities. Those afflicted with coronavirus are being taken to Japanese hospitals to receive medical treatment.

The Americans were on board the cruise ship Diamond Princess, which is currently quarantined in Yokohama, Japan. The ship is host to the most pervasive outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic outside of China, where it originated. American passengers who tested negative of the disease have been evacuated from the ship and brought back to the United States on charter planes. Those infected with the virus will be treated in Japanese hospitals.

At least one American passenger who was traveling on board the Diamond Princess is refusing to take a U.S government charter plane back to the country, stating his belief to USA Today that the evacuation process the government is using to retrieve its citizens is not safe.

There’s considerable cause to believe the global public is being largely kept in the dark by the authoritarian Chinese government on the dangers posed by the quickly spreading virus. Estimates of the total count of people infected by the disease are largely unclear, with the Chinese government suspected of releasing deflated statistics in an effort to blunt criticism of their response to the epidemic.
