Joe Biden’s Debate Performance Was Shameful

Along with millions of Americans, our adversaries were watching last night’s debate. And President Biden’s performance sent a dangerous message of incompetence that will further embolden China, Iran, Russia, and North Korea. 

The world is already on fire and last night only made it worse. He could barely communicate a coherent response to even the easiest questions from the moderator. It was very troubling and makes it clear he cannot be elected again in November. 

In a heartless move, the president also claimed no U.S. troops have died on his watch. That was a lie. Three servicemembers were killed in a drone attack earlier this year in Jordan. And, of course,13 U.S. servicemembers were killed on August 26, 2021 in Afghanistan as a result of the Biden administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan. It was the deadliest day for the United States in Afghanistan in over a decade. It was and will remain a stain on American foreign policy for generations – and it happened under Joe Biden’s watch.

Ignoring these brave servicemembers’ ultimate sacrifice is just the latest example of the president desperately trying to gloss over the deadly chaos he created in Afghanistan. The president has never even said the names of those who perished publicly. That’s why I went to the House floor today and honored their sacrifice by reading out their names. And also why I’m conducting a thorough investigation of the administration’s catastrophic handling of the withdrawal. I want every gold and blue star family member, and veterans to know: I will not rest until we determine how this happened – and hold everyone accountable who bears responsibility for it.

Watch my remarks on the House floor here.
