A leading British media outlet said Joe Biden failed to improve America’s relations with European countries. In a recent op-ed, BBC said Biden’s relationship with Europe has “turned sour” due to his botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.
BBC also pointed out the Biden administration failed to cooperate with NATO allies in Afghanistan, where 75 percent of troops were from European countries. These comments came despite Biden not challenging NATO member states on their delinquent defense payments as well as taking other pro-European steps in foreign affairs.
Meanwhile, Australian journalists added to these criticisms of Biden.
“This is a bloke who’s heavily controlled. Remember he was able to effectively campaign, or not campaign, for the presidency from his basement,” stated Paul Murray, host of Sky News Australia. “He was able to have a collection of people around him in the White House, who literally tell him who he can and can’t talk to when it comes to a free media.”
British and Australian media both agree Biden’s policies have not been helpful in building better relations going forward and argued they made the world a more dangerous place.
Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan has ruined U.S. credibility across the globe.
