A top Democrat told Fox News that Joe Biden is about to make the biggest mistake of his life
Joe Biden is trying to navigate a crisis of his own making with Ukraine and Russia.
The stakes continue to grow higher.
And this top Democrat told Fox News that Joe Biden is about to make the biggest mistake of his life.
2020 Democrat Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard recently appeared on Tucker Carlson’s program on Fox News, where she blasted Joe Biden for imposing sanctions on Russia after Vladimir Putin sent troops into two breakaway republics in Eastern Ukraine.
Gabbard ripped the sanctions as ineffective and said that it would only punish the American people.
“The reality is the sanctions don’t work, whether put in before or now or later, the sanctions don’t work. What we do know is they will increase suffering and hardship for the American people. This is the whole problem with the Biden administration. They are so focused on how do we punish Putin that they don’t care, and they are not focused on what is actually in the best interest of the American people,” Gabbard began.
Gabbard added that the working class would bear the brunt of the sanctions, as sanctioning the Russian energy industry would not just increase the cost of gasoline.
Since driving up the price of gasoline also increases the cost of shipping goods, prices at food stores and retail outlets would also increase to offset the rise in fuel prices.
But Gabbard noted that Biden and other elites avoided these costs.
“So when Biden stands there and looks directly into the camera and says defending freedom will cost us, what he really should be stating is looking directly into the American people’s eyes and saying, ‘This will cost you.’ Because the sanctions are not going to cost him or Kamala Harris or the power elite in this country or even the power elite in Russia, it is the people who will suffer, the American people, the Russian people, and people here at home working hard every single day facing those drastically increasing prices at the gas pump, facing increasing cost of the supermarket, impacting our supply chain,” Gabbard continued.
Gabbard also expressed concern that sanctioning Russia would lead to a dangerous cycle of escalations, as Putin could respond to sanctions in America with cyber-attacks, which would force a response from the United States.
The former Presidential candidate warned that the end result of that spiraling conflict would be a nuclear exchange between Russia and the United States.
