Rep. Comer to Newsmax: GOP Has Little Faith in Biden on World Stage

Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., told Newsmax on Thursday that given recent events, Republicans in Congress have little faith in President Joe Biden’s ability to negotiate deals on the world stage.

On Thursday, China and longtime U.S. ally Saudi Arabia reached a strategic partnership during Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s visit to Riyadh. That occurred a week after the Biden administration granted Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman immunity over the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. And it’s also on the heels of a much-criticized prisoner swap with Russia that brought women’s pro basketball star Brittney Griner back to the U.S. in exchange for a convicted arms trafficker and terrorist.

“You think we can’t fall any further [on the world stage] than we did after the debacle in Afghanistan from when we withdrew our troops and left all of our military equipment behind,” Comer said on “Spicer & Co.” “But then you see what happened today with the prisoner swap in Russia and now how Saudi Arabia and China are essentially mocking President Biden.”
