Ex-National Intelligence Director: Biden Also Failing U.S. Abroad

The former Director of National Intelligence said Joe Biden isn't just viewed as failing in the United States. He's failing around the entire world.

John Ratcliffe, the former national intelligence director in question, first pointed to Biden's recent take about Ukraine as Russian military forces surround the nation. Ratcliffe also cited a refusal to hold China accountable for COVID-19 and Iran launching a nuclear program as Biden's clear failures.

“You know, none of those scenarios is good, you know, right now, what we do know is that our intelligence community has assessed with confidence that the lab leak is one of only two possible explanations for this pandemic that killed a million Americans,” Ratcliffe said in an interview with Fox News, via The Daily Wire.

“And when our president raises it with the leader of China, and tells us that his response is, hey, you know, get lost, we’re not going to cooperate, that tells you how they are viewing leadership in the White House, that they will do what they want, when they want, with impunity with regard to the United States.

"And it’s why you see these statements coming out of out of China, out of Russia, out of Iran, where they are dictating to the United States, what’s going to happen instead of the U.S. leading and dictating to the rest of the world.”

As OutKick's Meg Turner relayed, Biden isn't exactly gaining high marks at home, as about 76% of Americans disagree with his search for a Supreme Court Justice.

Per Turner: "Biden vowed to select a Black woman to fill the vacancy — prompted by U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer’s coming retirement — without reviewing all potential candidates and the new poll reveals a sharply negative reaction from voters, ABC reports."
