President Biden may be scoring virtue-signaling brownie points with Liberal voters in America, but he is not scoring anything with countries with which we should be deescalating tensions, namely Russia and North Korea.
Instead of working to improve relations with our rivals, Biden is either hurling insults at them or has no strategy at all.
In North Korea’s case, the president is failing at the most basic principle of any relationship which is to simply establish contact.
“It will only be a waste of time to sit with the U.S. as it is not ready to feel and accept new change and new times,” North Korean official Choe Son Hui said in a statement published by state-run Korean Central News Agency on Thursday.
After months of unsuccessfully attempting to reach North Korea, the U.S. has received the cold shoulder from the regime.
Hui added North Korea will not resume denuclearization discussions with the U.S. unless the Biden Administration “rolls back its hostile policy towards the DPRK.”
This comes after sister of North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, Kim Yo Jong, threatened the U.S. earlier this week.
“We take this opportunity to warn the new U.S. administration trying hard to give off powder smell in our land…If it wants to sleep in peace for [the] coming four years, it had better refrain from causing a stink at its first step,” she said, according to The Hill.
The Biden Administration is off to an extremely rough start with international leaders who sense weakness and are taking the opportunity to make demands.
“America is back,” Biden told the world in the first weeks of his presidency. If “back” means letting other countries around the world take advantage of the US, then that’s exactly right.
We have returned to the ways of the old guard, just like the establishment wanted.
Biden is throwing away former President Trump’s “America First” and “peace through strength” policies by setting us back to the weak Obama-era position of leadership where we essentially offer a free-for-all for any country that wants it.
