Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) delivered remarks on Ukraine, Russia and the Biden administration. While speaking on the Senate floor Thursday, the Kentucky lawmaker called Joe Biden’s remarks regarding Russia and Ukraine tensions as “bizarre and devastating.”
“Our president seemed to state, and I pray unintentionally, that he expects Putin to escalate in Ukraine and at any case Putin can do what he wants,” McConnell explained. “Here’s what the President said: that decision is totally, solely, completely a Putin decision. I suspect it matter which side of the bed he gets up on. What on Earth does that mean?”
This comes as Vladimir Putin has massed at least 100,000 Russian troops along the border of the Ukraine, which is a sovereign country. Yet, Biden claimed if Russia attacks Ukraine in a “minor incursion,” the U.S. and its allies might not be unified in response to the potential invasion.
“It was a bizarre and devastating performance, especially, I would add, for our friends on the front lines,” said McConnell. “…Minutes later, White House staff put out a frantic statement laying out a completely different position than what President Biden had just expressed. By then, of course, damage had been done.”
The Republican senator then asserted that Biden must clean up his remarks and clearly demonstrate American leadership.
“His administration should be using every waking moment right now to expedite our delivery of real defensive capabilities to Ukraine,” he stressed.
McConnell maintained Putin is only deterred when the world imposes real costs on his behavior.

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
