Joe Biden’s trip to Saudi Arabia has been an embarrassment for the whole country.
He arrived with a fist bump to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) and it’s only gone downhill from there.
Among a thousand gaffes committed on his visit to Saudi Arabia, one of them I would say was the worst. It came in a speech on his final day.
Biden Puts His Foot in His Mouth
Speaking in Saudi Arabia, Biden claimed there were no more American troops fighting in Arab lands. Biden made mention of 9/11 as well.
He said after the fateful attack on the Twin Towers, this is the first time an American president has stepped into the region without the presence of American troops.
Biden said he will never forget those who served America, who fought with great bravery, selflessness, and altruism, sacrificing their lives for the good of America.
Biden also mentioned his son, Major Beau Biden, who participated in the fight in Iraq for about a year.
Maybe Biden should have also mentioned the 13 soldiers he left to sacrifice themselves at Kabul airport when he pulled out of Afghanistan without a plan.
This was when he evacuated Bagram airbase while still leaving thousands of Americans and troops stranded in the country.
Though no, he wasn’t focused on that, just on saying empty words. Antony Blinken, secretary of state, probably almost had a heart attack while Biden was speaking.
This guy is a walking disaster zone.

Biden is in Saudi Arabia begging for oil after kneecapping our own energy industry and the energy independence that President Trump had achieved.
Now, he wants to brag about pulling US troops out of the Middle East and Muslim nations?
Biden only cared about sticking with the date chosen for withdrawal, regardless of those who would be left behind in Afghanistan. He just wanted to check it off his list like a shopping list.
Now, he’s in Saudi Arabia bragging about it and talking nice to a group of arrogant, sleazy oil merchants who make the world a worse place. They also had elements of their government with proven involvement in the horrific attacks of September 11.
The fact is this: Biden’s bad politics and bad administration are taking us into a black hole and he’s rubbing salt in the wound.

The Bottom Line
After saying he would make Saudi Arabia a “pariah” on the world stage over killing journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Biden is back there begging for oil.
He’s doing that because he destroyed our own oil industry after saying he would “build back better.”
One lie follows in the footsteps of another, one disappointment on the heels of another. Trump warned us this would happen. Whatever else you may think of him, he was correct.
