Look at what Biden, Democrats have done

All these crises belong to President Biden and the Democrats. Sixty days after Biden’s inauguration, Russia started amassing tens of thousands of troops on the Ukrainian border, and this continued for a year, while Biden and the Democrats tried to figure out what they were doing.

Now, we’re spending billions of dollars trying to backfill support to Ukraine to repel Russia. Russia did nothing like this when Trump was in office. In the first three years of the Biden administration, Iran’s oil exports increased 300 percent, enough to supply Hamas, Hezbollah,and the Houthis, creating the current crisis in the Mideast.

This also aided China in their quest for oil. Last year 91 percent of Iranian oil went to China. Biden also sold China some oil in from our own National Strategic Petroleum reserves. His actions directed at our energy sector have caused us to lose our energy independence, sending gas prices soaring.

Biden executed 94 executive orders to undo everything Trump accomplished on the border, resulting in up to 9 million illegal immigrants entering this country, creating financial crises for many cities in our country. As seen on a recent “60 Minutes,” unbelievably, Mexico is now demanding we pay billions to Central and South American countries, or they’ll send more in.

Biden’s ridiculous spending after the pandemic resulted in the worst inflation seen in decades. You are all feeling it, and believe me, it’s not transitory. I don’t have space to address the disastrous Afghanistan exit, the Student Loan bailout, or the ridiculous climate rules and their effects on the auto industry and our daily lives.
