Joe Biden is the weakest leader of our generation.
An invasion of Ukraine from Russia is very likely at this point, and it’s all Joe Biden’s fault.
That is the point being pushed by Senator Ted Cruz.
Cruz says that Joe Bidn set a dangerous precedent after surrendering to Vladimir Putin on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
The pipeline is currently being built, which will go directly from Russia to Germany.
Cruz says that this is so Russia can bypass Ukraine, completely cutting them out of the transit loop.
He also said that Biden’s surrender in Afganistan to the Taliban revealed his weakness as a leader to Putin.
Newsmax has more on what Ted Cruz called a "surrender" to Putin, following Biden's decision to give up on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline:
Cruz said: ''Right now, as we speak, hundreds of thousands of Russian troops are amassed on the border of Ukraine, waiting to invade. This calamitous foreign policy disaster is Joe Biden's fault. This is the direct consequence of Joe Biden's surrender to Vladimir Putin on Nord Stream 2.
''What is Nord Stream 2? It is a pipeline being constructed from Russia to Germany to carry natural gas. Putin is building Nord Stream 2,'' Cruz continued. ''Why? To go around Ukraine, because right now, Russian gas goes through Ukraine.
''Putin didn't just wake up recently and decide to invade Ukraine. He's wanted to invade Ukraine for years. He did so in 2014, but he stopped short of full invasion. Why? Because the Ukrainian energy infrastructure was necessary to get the Russian gas to market.
Joe Biden's presidency can be summed up in one word:
This is no secret.
Biden knows it.
His political allies know it.
The American people now it.
Here's the Daily Wire with more from Senator Cruz:
Cruz said that U.S. allies in Europe had warned that by lifting the sanctions on the pipeline, the Biden administration was “increasing dramatically the chances that Russia would invade Ukraine.”
“This invasion that we are facing, the very real prospect of, is Joe Biden’s fault. But you know what? It is also the fault of Senate Democrats,” Cruz continued. “For two years, we had bipartisan agreement to stop Nord Stream 2 and we succeeded. And when there was a Republican president in office, Donald Trump, I and other Republicans were perfectly willing to hold President Trump to account to press him to stand up against Nord Stream 2. And he did. As soon as a Democrat got in the White House, our Democratic colleagues decided that partisan loyalty was more important than national security.”
Cruz ripped Biden’s phone call with Putin on Tuesday, saying that while it’s “real nice,” it’s not going to stop an invasion and that the only way to stop it is to follow the law and sanction the pipeline.
