Former Vice President Joe Biden has stated that America is "an embarrassment." He was in Munich, Germany, at the annual event in which foreign policy leaders meet, he described our country as one with trade policies that are "self defeating" and how we're basically an embarrassment. Regardless of everything that President Donald Trump is accomplishing with the economy and his over 70% approval on latest State of the Union, Biden is still disgusted with the rest of us.
Biden stated, as quoted by the Washington Examiner, "The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right,” the former vice president and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told the Munich Security Conference. "The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right. That it is not who we are."
Biden wouldn't even mention Trump by name. He usually won't criticize the commander-in-chief while overseas, but he stepped out of the norm and slammed Trump anyway.
Biden also stated, "While I cannot speak today as an elected government official who is able to set policy, I can speak as a citizen. I can offer insight into my country. I know we’ve heard a lot today about leadership, but in my experience, leadership only exists if somebody — and others — are with you. Leadership in the absence of people who are with you is not leadership.”
Is this Biden's way of trying to stump the Trump? Is Biden running for president in 2020 and his first unofficial stumping is overseas in Munich where he's trashing Trump?
If he wants to make a case for himself and run for president, then good for him - but what's the point in slamming Trump and America when people who have a brain can obviously see we're doing pretty well right now?
What's the point of constantly talking bad about President Trump when he could be part of the solutions, instead of starting more problems.
Just a shame that people at Biden's level have nothing better to do.
