Republican Rep. Darrell Issa: Biden's Ukraine Trip A 'Strategic Failure'

 February 21, 2023

Republican Representative Darrell Issa of California called President Joe Biden's recent visit to Ukraine a failure.

"Issa, who is currently on a bipartisan congressional trip in Europe, issued a scathing rebuke of President Joe Biden’s visit to Ukraine on Monday, describing the visit as a 'strategic failure,'" reports Breitbart.

Issa is a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and has served in Congress for two decades.

The congressman's comments came while he was in neighboring Poland.

"President Biden was right to make his trip to Ukraine. And we recognize the hundreds of American officials who worked long and hard to make this a secure visit," said Issa. "But while today was a logistical success, it was a strategic failure. Rather than an inspiring mission from a commander in chief, this resembled a VIP drop-by from a global celebrity."

"The president’s secret visit to Ukraine, which, as laid out in a CNN report, took months of planning, became public Monday morning when Biden appeared in social media posts in Kyiv next to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky," reports Breitbart.

"Unchecked aggression is a threat to all of us," said Biden while with Zelensky. Biden noted that "Russia’s aim was to wipe Ukraine off the map. Putin’s war of conquest is failing."

Biden said while he was there that the United States will give nearly half a billion dollars in additional military aid to Ukraine.

Biden also told Zelensky the U.S. would support his country "for as long as it takes."
