While Americans have largely been evacuated from the now Taliban-run Afghanistan, new obstacles face the United States with the new middle-eastern government.  The current predicament truly begs the question, “should America negotiate with terrorists?”  US Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) doesn’t think so, and he blames Biden for this ultimatum.

Today, Senator Rick Scott released a statement slamming President Biden’s withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan that has not only shifted U.S. foreign and national security policy to a new low on fighting terrorism but also empowered our enemies, like Communist China, which is strengthening ties with the Taliban.

“It has long been the policy of the United States to not differentiate between evil terrorists and the governments who support and harbor them. Under the failed leadership of President Joe Biden, that is no longer the case,” said Senator Scott in a statement.

Scott then referenced the appointment of Sirajuddin Haqqani, “the leader of the Haqqani Network and a known terrorist who is wanted by the FBI for the murder of American citizens.”

The Florida Senator is also a notorious critic of the Chinese Communist Party and didn’t fail to get his jab in on Biden’s foreign policy with our Chinese adversaries, claiming that President Biden (D) has shown “unprecedented weakness” with the CCP, as they are “stepping in and taking advantage.  Every day he continues to show he is shockingly unfit to lead America as commander in chief. There is no question that Joe Biden’s misguided decisions and flawed leadership have made the world a more dangerous place. His latest appeasement of terrorists is nothing short of un-American and woefully beneath the office and values he is sworn to uphold.”

Some could say that Scott had the earliest predictions on Biden’s foreign policy, foreseeing grand middle-eastern conflicts as early as May of 2020 when tensions between Hamas and Israel grew.
