Video surfaced Tuesday showing Joe Biden in 2003 defending “Nation Building” in Afghanistan; saying the alternative is “blood-thirsty warlords” and terrorists taking control of the country.
“In some parts of the administration, ‘Nation Building’ is still a dirty phrase. But the alternative to nation building is chaos. Chaos that churns out blood-thirsty warlords, drug traffickers and terrorists,” said then-Senator Biden.
“We’ve seen it happen in Afghanistan before, and I am quite fearful it may happen again,” he added. “Warlords, drugs, terrorists, the connection is clear as a bell.”
Nearly two decades later, President Biden is now presiding over the botched withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan.
A new poll from the Trafalgar Group shows a vast majority of Americans disapprove of Joe Biden’s handling of Afghanistan, raising serious new questions for Democrats heading into the highly contested midterm elections.
“When broken down by party, 48 percent of Democrats disapprove of the president’s handling of the situation, while almost 40 percent of those polled gave him positive marks,” reports The Hill.
“But the gap was much wider among Republicans: Nearly 89 percent said they disapprove of the job Biden is doing when it comes to Afghanistan, with only 7 percent saying they approve,” adds the outlet.

????: Cori Bush Says She’s ‘Building a Politics of Love’ Because ‘That’s How Government Should Work’
So-called ‘Squad’ member Cori Bush posted a confusing message on social media Thursday after defending her use of private security guards while working to “defund” police; saying she’s “building a politics of love.”
“We’re building a politics of love. Because I love you, I care that you have food to eat. I care that you have a roof over your head. I care that you have what you need to thrive. That’s how our government should work,” posted Bush on Twitter.
We’re building a politics of love.
Because I love you, I care that you have food to eat. I care that you have a roof over your head. I care that you have what you need to thrive.
That’s how our government should work.

Bush stunned thousands of followers on social media Thursday when a video of her went viral depicting the lawmaker defending her use of armed guards.
“I’m going to make sure that I have security because I know I have had attempts on my life. I have too much work to do, there are too many people that need help right now for me to allow that,” said Buch.
“So, if I end up spending $200,000, if I spend ten more dollars on it, you know what, I get to be here to do the work,” she added. “So, suck it up. Defunding the police has to happen, we need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets.”
