As he often does, Donald Trump is attempting to rewrite history when it comes to NATO. The ex-President claims that his hard stance with America’s Allies was a success. In fact, leaders of other countries, at best tolerated him and at worst, mocked him.
On the flip side, Joe Biden is showing strong leadership skills in regard to the Ukraine situation. Even Conservatives like Condoleeza Rice are giving him credit for doing so. And during his Monday morning show, Joe Scarborough praised Biden on how he has fixed Trump’s NATO mess.
The Morning Joe host began, “I was very critical of the Biden administration on Afghanistan, the retreat from Afghanistan, and the fact we didn’t keep 2,500 peacekeeping forces in there.”
“But as far as this crisis goes, from the very beginning, Joe Biden has done what we need American presidents to do. That is quietly, diplomatically stitching NATO back together after it was being ripped apart by Donald Trump for four years and bringing NATO actually into a better place than it has been in, again, decades.”
