If little else to brag about, Joe Biden has made good on his pre-election promise that he would be entirely unlike Donald Trump … with no more of those annoying tweets.
The Southern Border
On his first day in office, President Biden signed an executive order to end Trump’s nearly 500 miles of new wall construction … about a month short of completion time caused by Democrat lawsuit delays.
Perhaps just as — or even more important — the Biden administration tore up Trump’s “stay in Mexico policy” agreement which had arranged for asylum-seeking immigrants to stay on the other side of the border for vetting and processing, with 28,000 Mexican soldiers stationed there to secure their side of the border.
According to data released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a total of 929,868 illegal immigrants have been apprehended at the border since Oct.1 of last year, putting the U.S. on pace to top 1.55 million illegal immigrants in this fiscal year.
In addition, Team Biden reestablished Obama’s “catch-and-release” policy, wasting ICE agent time, efforts and morale as they were reassigned to attending the needs of unaccompanied children delivered by coyote human and narcotic traffickers.
Joe Biden’s reversal of Trump policies has consequentially resulted in a full-blown border crisis exemplified by children inhumanely crowded in disgusting COVID-infested facilities and subsequent nationwide transfers to a neighborhood near you.
WHO and the Wuhan Virus
Recall that on January 31, 2020 — the day after the CDC publicly confirmed the first person-to-person COVID-19 transmission — Trump had overruled World Health Organization (WHO) “experts” and shut down flights from China.
Joe Biden had criticized the China travel ban, stating, “This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia.”
Upon taking the White House, President Biden wasted no time in rejoining WHO, that same organization that had declared on January 14 of that year that Chinese authorities had found no clear evidence of human-to-human virus transmission.
We know now that WHO has persistently run interference with scientific investigations into the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) “China virus” origins.
And as a January State Department disclosure confirmed, “The U.S. government has reason to believe that several researchers inside the WIV became sick in autumn 2019, before the first identified case of the outbreak, with symptoms consistent with both COVID-19 and common seasonal illnesses.”
In short, Trump was right all along.
The Iran Nuclear Deal
In 2018, Donald Trump was also correct in pulling America out of the former Obama-Biden administration’s agreement to join the disastrous Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — more broadly known as the “Iran Nuclear Deal” — fecklessly negotiated by then-Secretary of State John Kerry.
Throughout the course of JCPOA, Iran continued to enrich uranium up to a near-nuclear weapons level of 60% purity, along with unrestricted progress in developing intercontinental delivery missiles.
The Biden-Harris administration appears eager to return to the negotiating table with a yet-to-be-determined offer to lift punitively punishing Iran sanctions in exchange for another meaningless round of toothless promises that Tehran mullahs will abandon their nuclear weaponry ambitions.
As noted in a recent open letter signed by 124 retired U.S. generals and admirals, “Re-engaging in the flawed Iran Nuclear Deal would result in Iran acquiring nuclear weapons along with the means to deliver them, thereby upsetting Mideast peace initiatives and aiding a terrorist nation whose slogans and goals include ‘death to America’ and ‘death to Israel.'”
