Biden can’t get the middle east to return his phone calls for help.
Maybe that’s because they think he is a joke.
The lack of respect for America’s chief executive office is not limited to this skit.
According to the Wall Street Journal,
The White House unsuccessfully tried to arrange calls between President Biden and the de facto leaders of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as the U.S. was working to build international support for Ukraine, and contain a surge in oil prices, said Middle East and U.S. officials.
Rather than turning America loose to generate more of her own energy again, Biden wants Saudi Arabia and the UAE to turn their spigots on. Those two won’t do so without certain conditions being met.
Reports from The Hill confirm:
Officials told the [WSJ] that U.S. relations with the two Gulf countries have been strained over the Biden administration’s lack of support in the war in Yemen and the revived negotiations concerning the Iran nuclear deal.
Saudi Arabia has also been pushing for legal immunity in the U.S. for Crown Prince Mohammed, who is accused of killing a journalist in 2018.
It’s never good for America to need help, particularly from Persian Gulf monarchies that won’t let our crises go to waste.
