Former US Vice President Joseph Biden believes that the current us leader Donald Trump is pursuing a wrong policy towards Russia and can allow the collapse of the North Atlantic Alliance. He said this at a televised debate of Democrats in Ohio.
“Our President is acting erratically, he is insane, he knows nothing about foreign policy and he is only acting out of fear for his re-election,” Biden said. “Russia is trying to influence and split NATO, and what is the President doing? He says, “I believe [Russian President] Vladimir Putin, I don’t believe our intelligence,” he added. According to Biden, trump also did not demonstrate that the US is ready to fulfill its obligations regarding a joint collective response from all NATO States to a military attack on one of them.
“If he re-elected, I promise that NATO will cease to exist, – said the former Vice President of the United States. “There will be serious damage to our security. We’ll be in big trouble.”
Biden also noted that US troops are in Syria to counter the terrorist group “Islamic state.” “That’s why we first became involved in this and did not cede all territory to [Syrian President Bashar] Assad and the Russians,” he added.
Biden is now considered one of Trump’s most likely democratic rivals in the upcoming November 2020 presidential election.
