Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
Media Downplays Trump Administration’s Peace Agreement and Shifts to Its Usual Trump Hate Programming
This is historic, but they’re ignoring it.
The Trump administration signed a historic normalization agreement at the White House with the Bahrain, Israel, and United Arab Emirates on September 15, 2020.
In almost predictable fashion, the media has ignored if not flat out downplayed the significance of such a deal. This is similar to how the media went on a doomsday fit when the Trump administration recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2018.
The Washington Free Beacon reported on former Secretary of State John Kerry declaring in 2019 that the recognition of Jerusalem would prevent peace efforts in the Middle East or spur further violence in the region. Despite this, the UAE and Bahrain still signed on to the normalization deal. Despite the accomplishment, the media is back to its usual Wuhan virus fear-mongering and attacking Trump for failing to contain the virus.
President Donald Trump and Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu are of the opinion that other Arab nations will join the UAE and Bahrain in normalizing relations with Israel. This is at a time when Iran is quickly emerging as a regional power and is prompting Middle Eastern countries to form a balancing coalition against it.
“We have many nations ready to follow” and normalize relations with Israel, Trump commented. He added that “at least five or six countries coming along very quickly.”
According to Breitbart News, Oman is likely to be the next Arab country to normalize its relations with Israel.
These latest diplomatic accomplishments show the Trump administration’s willingness to use smart diplomacy to bring about proactive solutions in violence-ridden regions of the world.
This lies in stark contrast to his defense industry beholden predecessors who impulsively turned to nation-building and intervention.
The next step would be for the Trump administration to finally purge his administration of residual neoconservative/neoliberal influences and staff it with solid America First conservatives such as Douglas Macgregor to make his vision of foreign policy restraint a reality.
Like the peace deals, such a move would make the media go nuts. And that’s a great thing for America.
