Senator Johnson: ‘The person really carrying the white flag is President Biden’
Johnson went through a long list of issues that have come up in just one year of Biden’s presidency.
“The first day or two of the office, what did you do?” Johnson asked. “He canceled the Keystone XL pipeline. He relaxed the sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which was a clear signal to Putin that we are going to be weak; We’re going to let them trample us.”
Johnson also flipped the script, using a common leftist talking point used against President Trump and turning it against Biden:

“I keep wondering how committed President Biden is,” the senator wondered. “Almost every action that he has taken as president has weakened the United States.”
“He opens the border,” the Republican began. “We have an unbelievable out-of-control influx of illegal immigrants, out-of-control deficit spending, inflation hitting a 40-year high, the shameful and dangerous surrender in Afghanistan.”
“This is weakness. This is a real weakness,” she insisted. “It is weakening the United States.”

Johnson on Biden: ‘He is weakening America’
The senator added: “Our enemies sense that, they are noticing it, and they are becoming more aggressive. They are taking advantage of the situation.”
Johnson then gave his analysis of current foreign affairs.
“Russia is surrounding Ukraine,” Johnson noted. “China is flying over Taiwan. Iran is becoming more active in Yemen. North Korea is testing new weapons. This is widespread.”
Johnson added: “Bad actors around the world see our weakness when America is not strong. And I agree with President Reagan: peace is achieved through strength. But that strength starts with economic strength.”
“And President Biden is weakening our economy,” he said. “He is weakening our military.”
“It is weakening the United States,” Johnson concluded.
