From President Donald J. Trump:
Joe Biden is an incompetent fool. When he was Vice President, officials in the Obama White House would excuse his comments by saying, “that’s just Joe.” As President of the United States, however, Mr. Biden’s gaffes have much larger consequences around the world.
Last Saturday, during a speech in front of the Royal Castle in Warsaw, Poland, Mr. Biden appeared to call for regime change in Russia when he said, “for God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.” The White House quickly denied that he was calling for regime change. One administration official said, “The President’s point was that Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the region. He was not discussing Putin’s power in Russia or regime change.” Actually, that is exactly what he said.
Secretary of State Anthony Blinken quickly moved to affirm that the United States has no plans for regime change in Moscow. The U.S. Ambassador to NATO, Julianne Smith, had to further the clean-up on Sunday by saying that “the U.S. does not have a policy of regime change in Russia, full stop.”
