Speaker Johnson called Biden’s foreign policy a “disaster.”

US President Joe Biden’s foreign policy has been a disaster, Speaker of the House of Representatives Mike Johnson said on Fox News.

“Biden’s foreign policy is a disaster. Everyone knows it is so dangerous because we demonstrate weakness on the world stage,” he said.

According to Johnson, such a policy of the American administration leads to the fact that it itself “invites aggression.”

“This is why all our adversaries around the world act in such a provocative manner,” he added, emphasizing that this did not happen under the administration of former US President Donald Trump.

On Saturday night, the United States, as part of retaliatory strikes for an attack on its military base in Jordan, hit more than 85 targets belonging to the forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and associated forces in Iraq and Syria. The strikes took place around 4:00 p.m. Friday, US East Coast time, the Pentagon’s central command said. According to the US military, among the targets hit by US aircraft are command posts, intelligence centers, missile and drone storage facilities, as well as other facilities involved in ensuring the operation of ammunition supply chains for the IRGC and allied forces in Iraq and Syria.

The Syrian state television channel Al Akhbar reported that as a result of US strikes on positions in the Syrian desert and on the border of Syria and Iraq, several people were killed. Iraqi security officials reported the death of one civilian and the injury of another as a result of a US strike in the Al-Qaim area in western Iraq.
