At a NATO gathering in Brussels, Belgium Thursday, Joe Biden announced more sanctions against Russia before telling a reporter than he never said sanctions would work.
Biden announced that Russian lawmakers and defence companies should “share the pain” of sanctions:
No sooner than that announcement was made, however, Biden snapped at a reporter who stated “Sir, deterrence didn’t work,” and further asked “What makes you think Vladimir Putin will alter course based on the action you’ve taken today?”
“Let’s get something straight. Do you remember, if you covered me from the very beginning, I did not say that, in fact, the sanctions would deter him,” Biden sniped back.
He added, “Sanctions never deter. You keep talking about that. Sanctions never deter. The maintenance of sanctions, the maintenance of sanctions, the increasing the pain, and the demonstration why I asked for this NATO meeting today is to be sure that after a month, we will sustain what we’re doing, not just next month, the following month, but for the remainder of this entire year. That’s what will stop him.”
“You believe the actions today will have an impact on making Russia change course in Ukraine?” the reporter further inquired.
“That’s not what I said. You’re playing a game with me,” Biden blasted back “I know. The answer is no. I think what happens is we have to demonstrate — the purpose, the single most important thing is for us to stay unified, and the world continue to focus on what a brute this guy is.”
Sanctions never deter? That’s the total opposite of what the rest of Biden’s administration is saying:
As Biden noted, this isn’t the first time he’s said sanctions don’t work.
Last month, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed that Biden wasn’t being serious when he said that “No one expected the sanctions to prevent anything from happening,” with Russia and Ukraine, moments after announcing more sanctions.
Biden arrived in Brussels Thursday and was the only world leader not to take any questions as his handlers yelled “NO, NO, NO” at reporters:
He then weirdly stumbled his way through he building as handlers continued yelling “No, no, no, no, no, no, no!”
When it came time to finally answer some questions, Biden pulled out a bit of paper and said “I’ll be now happy to take your questions… I’ve been given a list.”
What a leader!
