Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) complained on Tuesday that President Joe Biden “has done nothing but empower and embolden” Russian President Vladimir Putin with weak policy decisions that seem to follow rather than lead.
Green was disturbed by the “genocide” he sees going on in Ukraine at the hands of the Russians.
He said that Congress is “completely united” on providing more aid to Ukraine, but that the Department of Defense’s bureaucracy was leading to slow movement in getting the aid there.
The “DOD bureaucracies can’t keep up,” he said.
“We’ve got France and the U.K. asking us for more sanctions. They are leading, not Biden,” he advised. “America is supposed to be the leader of the free world, and Joe Biden has put us in, you know, third or fourth or fifth place.”
