John Ratcliffe was the previous Director of National Intelligence and also served in Donald Trump’s administration. Recently he tagged Biden and his administration as the “GREATEST THREAT” to America.
In an interview with Fox News host Mark Levin, Ratcliffe informed about Biden’s chaotic administrating of the U.S. retreat from Afghanistan and its mayhem-causing consequences.
“So my question to you is, what has Joe Biden done to America’s national security?” host Mark Levin asked.
“Well, Mark, to your point, first on Afghanistan, I hope that it’s just something that has an impact for decades, I hope it’s not centuries. It’s the most profound loss for the United States certainly in our lifetime,” Ratcliffe stated.
“But one of my concerns there, and this goes to your larger question about what has Joe Biden done to our national security, he has very clearly harmed it, but in so many respects beyond Afghanistan. But this most recent, most painful, most colossal, epic failure in Afghanistan has literally breathed life into the radical Islamic terrorist movement not just in Afghanistan but around the world. We won’t know the consequences of how bad they really are for a long, long time to come, who he has inspired, and what groups morph out of what they see as a victory of epic proportions over the great Satan, the United States,” Ratcliffe added.
“So, that is just part of it. But to your larger question, Mark, you know, I wrote an article as the Director of National Intelligence saying that China was our number one national security threat, I did that as I was walking out the door based on the fact that I’m the person who saw more intelligence than anyone else in the country over the last year and China very much is that existential threat to our country,” he said.
“But if I had to write that op-ed today, I would tell you that I think the greatest national security threat, at least in the short-term, is Joe Biden and our national security apparatus. And the reason I say that I am not trying to be glib or hyperbolic, but Mark, they have literally gotten everything wrong for 8 straight months with respect to China, Russia, Iran, and throughout the Middle East, now including Afghanistan, it goes on and on,” he continued.
A recent poll has revealed that the GOP was not happy with the Biden administration’s handling of Afghanistan withdrawal. Almost 70% of Republican voters believe that Joe Biden did a poor or fair job with the American departure from Afghanistan, as per Pew Research Center.
The GOP also blasted the Biden administration because of the immense increase in federal spending despite the soaring inflation.
“I think he’s really screwed up the economy,” said Republican Party strategist John Feehery. “He’s incompetent, and he’s not the moderate that he portrays himself as. The ‘Build Back Better’ thing was kind of a disaster. The Inflation Reduction Act was to reduce inflation, [which is still above 7%]. I give him a D. But the American economy is pretty resilient, and it’s going to come back despite his best efforts and the excessive spending.”
The GOP strategist John Feehery criticized the Biden administration and stated that Joe Biden did not show any political mastery and charisma for someone who is a part of D.C. politics all his life.
“He’s not very coherent,” Feehery said. “He doesn’t seem like he’s got a firm hand on the wheel. And I think the biggest shock is how liberal his administration has been. From education to the woke agenda to all the transgender stuff, they’re far on the left.”
Joe Biden has been an integral part of the U.S. political system, yet his Afghanistan withdrawal strategy and plans caused a huge mess for the United States. His flawed policies have been very hard on the American taxpayers.
Moreover, instead of controlling the rising inflation, the Biden administration rose their government spending. This clearly indicates that John Ratcliffe is right that the Democrats are not concerned about taxpaying Americans at all and they are very dangerous for this great nation.
