Ted Cruz: Europe on ‘Verge of War’ Because of Biden’s ‘Weakness’

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz has unloaded on Joe Biden over the unfolding crisis with Russia, warning that Europe is now “on the verge of war” because of the Democrat president’s “weakness” and “fecklessness.”

Cruz is warning that Biden’s weakness has opened up the floodgates for Russia’s aggression toward Ukraine.

Fox News Channel anchor Bill Hemmer asked Cruz on “Fox News Sunday” if he believes what Biden is doing in Ukrainian has worked so far.

“No, it hasn’t worked at all,” Cruz blasted.

“If you look at what the Ukrainians want, they’ve been very explicit.

“They’ve asked the United States explicitly, ‘Put sanctions on Nord Stream 2, right now, today.’

“Joe Biden could do that this morning.

“He refuses to do it,” the senator said.

“And they said, number two, provide lethal military aid, give us the weapons to defend ourselves.

“Joe Biden came to Capitol Hill and personally lobbied Democratic senators to vote against Russian sanctions.

“That’s why we’re facing this invasion.

“I gotta say Bill, Joe Biden becoming president is the best thing that ever happened, tragically, for Vladimir Putin.

“Europe is on the verge of war because of the weakness, the fecklessness of Joe Biden.

“Joe Biden’s surrender and disastrous retreat from Afghanistan is the worst military catastrophe for the United States in decades, and the consequences, at the time I said as a result of this incredible weakness, all of our enemies across the globe are looking to Washington.

“They are taking the measure of the men in the Oval Office and as a result, as I said back in August, the chances of Russia invading Ukraine had just risen tenfold.

“The chances of China invading Taiwan had just risen tenfold. We are seeing the first of those two shoes dropping today.

“Once Putin builds Nord Stream 2, he no longer has to worry about those pipelines.

“That pipeline was dead for over a year until Joe Biden became president and Putin began building that pipeline again on Jan. 24, 2021, 4 days after Biden was sworn into office because he knew what was going to happen, which was that Joe Biden formally waived sanctions on Russia, on Putin, and gave the green light to build Nord Stream 2.

“That is why we have over 100,000 troops in Russian tanks on the border of Ukraine preparing to invade.

“That’s where we are on the brink of war in Europe,” he said.
