World leaders are taking swings at President Joe Biden for his sloppy speech in Poland about Russia’s attack on Ukraine.
“President Joe Biden’s call for regime change in Russia could embolden Russian President Vladimir Putin to escalate war tensions with NATO,” reports Breitbart.
“Western NATO allies France and Germany tamped down President Biden’s Saturday assertion that regime change is needed in Russia, a statement the White House immediately retracted,” reports Breitbart.
“World leaders felt the need to respond to Biden’s statement by suggesting his words ‘could make it harder to resolve the conflict,’ Breitbart reports.
Both the French and German presidents took issue with Biden’s weak leadership.
“French President Emanuel Macron feared Biden’s remarks could embolden Putin and escalate the Ukrainian war. Macron urged caution from the U.S., reports Breitbart.
“I wouldn’t use those terms, because I continue to speak to President Putin, because what do we want to do collectively?”” said Macron. “We want to stop the war that Russia launched in Ukraine, without waging war and without escalation.”
“German Chancellor Olaf Scholz also felt the need to comment on Biden’s remarks over fears that Biden’s loose talk could embolden Putin’s aggression toward Ukraine,” according to Breitbart.
“We both agree completely that regime change is not an object and aim of policy that we pursue together,” Scholz said.
“Biden’s statement that Putin ‘cannot remain in power’ was just one mistake he made during last week’s symbolic foreign mission to stabilize the region. Instead of projecting calm and steadiness, the AP noted Biden’s trip ‘created a troubling distraction, undermining his effectiveness as he returned home to face restive Americans who strongly disapprove of his performance on issues that matter most to them,'” reports Breitbart News.
