Over the weekend, Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin slammed Democrat President Joe Biden for his policy failures, specifically pointing to the international crises that have arisen since he took office.
Youngkin made his comments during a Sunday interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC News’ “This Week” after being asked whether he believes the 2020 presidential election was “stolen.”
“Well, I’ve consistently said that Joe Biden was legitimately elected president,” Youngkin said. “He’s sleeping in the White House. I wish he weren’t. In all candor, the chaos that we see around the world and at home is his projected weakness. International foreign policy has resulted in multiple spots of chaos from Israel to Ukraine to China is his foreign policy weakness again, has resulted in bad adversaries being funded like Iran.”
“And then we see his weakness at our border, which has turned every state into a border state,” he continued. “The free flow of illegal drugs and crime has really invaded everywhere. We have five Virginians a day on average that died from fentanyl overdoses. And of course, the chaos in our economy is not only hurting Virginians, and Americans, but it projects weakness around the world yet again.”
“And so, I wish you weren’t our president,” he concluded. “We can’t afford to have him be our president again. And Virginians are telling me every single day that these issues, these issues of jobs and inflation and public safety and great education for their children are so important. That’s where we need to be focused and common-sense policies do work. We’ve demonstrated it in Virginia.”
Youngkin went on to urge Virginians to turn up to vote for Republicans this week in the state’s elections as he seeks to hold onto the majority in the House and hopes to flip the Senate.
