Su. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, dijo a Fox News que Biden ha “completamente fallido” para enfrentar los desafíos tanto de la retirada de Afganistán como de la propagación de omicron, revelando su “incapacidad para liderar el país” through crises.
“From his disaster in Afghanistan, to the out-of-control situation at our southern border, and now his failure to prepare for the omicron variant his own administration warned about, time and again Joe Biden has utterly failed to meet the challenge and has demonstrated to the American people his inability to lead this country through crises, including those of his own making,” said Ernst.
Biden said at the end of August the “consensus opinion” was that after the U.S. withdrew all its troops from Kabul, a Taliban takeover of the country “would not occur.”
“I made the decision. The buck stops with me. I took the consensus opinion. The consensus opinion was that in fact it would not occur, if it occurred, until later in the year. It was my decision,” said Biden on Aug. 20.
