Newsmax Reporter Asks Jen Psaki Why Biden Didn’t Let Putin Think US Might Attack Russia Over Ukraine

( James Rosen, Newsmax’s White House correspondent, recently asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki why President Joe Biden didn’t allow Russia to think that the United States may take military action against Russia if Putin were to order his troops to invade Ukraine.

During the Trump administration, rumors circulated that the president had threatened to bomb Moscow in the event of a Russian invasion of Ukraine. During those four years, Russia didn’t even come close to escalating the conflict with Ukraine. During the Obama-Biden administration, Russia annexed Crimea. During the Biden-Harris administration, Russia bombarded Ukraine with bombs and missiles.

All the while, President Vladimir Putin knew that the United States would not take military action against him.

“I think a lot of people wonder why a greater effort wasn’t made to leave Mr. Putin in doubt about the consequences he might face,” Rosen asked Psaki.

The White House press secretary didn’t seem to know what to say but eventually came up with a response. Psaki claimed that the reason Putin wasn’t left doubting what would happen is that “the President is the President of the United States of America and he felt it was important to be clear with the American people about what his intentions were and what they were not.”

That’s not an answer, is it? It’s an explanation of what went wrong.

Psaki added that the president didn’t want to send men and women to fight in a war in Ukraine against Russia – again missing the point.

Doesn’t this demonstrate everything that is wrong with the Biden administration?

If the president can’t leave another world leader doubting what might happen if he invades a sovereign foreign territory, then what else might happen in the next three years of his presidency?
