While he didn’t submissively bow to a foreign dignitary like former President Barack Obama once did, President Joe Biden did apologize to world leaders at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland for the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate accord who were attending
"I guess I shouldn't apologize, but I do apologize for the fact that the United States under the last administration pulled out of the Paris accord. That kind of put us behind the eight ball a bit," Biden said.
No sooner than President Biden make his apology did Florida Senator Rick Scott call him an “Apologist and Appeaser in Chief” who put “America last,” again.
“Apologist and Appeaser in Chief. Once again, Joe Biden puts America last,” tweeted Sen. Scott about Biden’s climate apology.
But President didn’t just throw the Trump administration under the bus on climate change, he threw all Americans under it. Biden all but said that Americans were asleep at the wheel in it came to addressing climate change.
"The American people, four or five years ago, weren't at all sure about climate change, whether it was real. Well, they have, as they say in southern parts of my state, seen the lord. They've seen what's happened back home, the incredible changes that are taking place, and they're now finally — finally, finally, finally — realizing the sense of urgency that you all are,” added Biden.
