Republicans are knocking Joe Biden for failing to defend U.S. national interests at the G7 summit. It began with former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who said in an interview Sunday, Biden’s claims that “America is back” is bringing back the Obama days when America was weak. He then criticized Biden for shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline while allowing Russia to finish construction of Nord Stream 2. Pompeo stressed. Biden must focus on what matters most to America not other countries.
The G7 unveiled a plan to crackdown on the use of coal, oil and cars as part of the so-called “Great Reset.” In a statement after the G7 summit Sunday, the nations said reaching zero carbon emissions is their key economic goal. G7 leaders embraced the far-left talking points, touting what they called the “Green Industrial Revolution.”
“We need to have some bigger commitments on climate finance, on phasing out coal, on low-carbon vehicles of all kind, including EVs (electric vehicles),” stated U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson. “Including making commitments on protecting nature and biodiversity, which is integral to our struggle against climate change.”
As a result, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) lambasted Joe Biden for being “passive” with world leaders. During an interview Sunday, the Republican lawmaker criticized Biden for failing to condemn China over its role in allegedly creating and spreading COVID-19. The governor added, Biden’s energy agenda is hurting middle America.
“I think that President Biden is someone that’s much more passive on the world stage, not nearly as assertive as somebody like Donald Trump was,” he stated. “I think is energy level is obviously much lower…I think our adversaries are watching that.”
DeSantis stressed that Biden’s performance at the G7 summit played well into the hands of European elites, all at the expense of American households.
