Donald Trump blames Joe Biden administration for ‘humiliation’ US currently faces
Washington/Sputnik: Former US President Donald Trump has blamed the administration of Joe Biden for an array of issues the country is currently facing, saying at the Republican Party convention in North Carolina that the US is being "demeaned and humiliated."
Speaking in Greenville on Saturday, Trump said that Republicans will have a "tremendous" 2022 and emphasized that "survival depends on Republicans being elected at every level."
"Our border is wide open, illegal immigration is skyrocketing … Drugs are pouring in, gas prices are soaring, our industries are being pillaged by foreign cyber attacks, that’s a lack of respect for our country and for our leaders, and speaking of our leaders they are bowing down to China," Trump said.
He claimed that the Biden administration is spreading the wrong kind of ideology in the US that will lead to more division, not unity.
"The Biden administration has also issued regulations to indoctrinate America’s school children with poisonous and divisive left-wing doctrines such as critical race theory," Trump said.
He warned that without strong borders and election integrity "our country could be run as a dictatorship." "I am not the one who is trying to undermine American democracy, I am the one who is trying to save it," Trump said.
The former president blamed the Biden administration for the southern border crisis and said that the Democrats have "turned America into a sanctuary for criminal aliens."
"The border is just the beginning of Biden disasters," Trump warned.
He said that Biden is being "openly mocked by Chinese negotiators and Russian President [Vladimir] Putin."
"They are taunting him and they are laughing at him and they are humiliating our country," Trump said.
At the same time, Trump claimed to have a good relationship with Putin.
"I have a very good relationship with President Putin, but there has never been anybody as tough on Russia as I was," Trump said at the GOP convention in Greenville.
Meanwhile, Biden said in an opinion piece published by The Washington Post on Saturday that Washington and its allies are ready to address what they consider Russia’s challenges to security and sovereignty, but the US does not seek conflict with Moscow and the upcoming talks between Biden and Putin in Geneva will present an opportunity to discuss areas of cooperation, such as strategic stability and arms control.
