Biden declares ‘America is back.’ Mike Pompeo asks: ‘Back to when ISIS controlled a caliphate?’

News & Politics

President Joe Biden declared Thursday in a speech outlining his foreign policy priorities that “America is back.”

But former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took issue with the president’s remarks, asking, “back to when ISIS controlled a caliphate?”

What are the details?

Biden made the statement during an address at the State Department, where he pledged, “We will repair our alliances and engage with the world once again, not to meet yesterday’s challenges, but today’s and tomorrow’s.”

“America is back. Diplomacy is back,” the president said, adding that after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol that the U.S. would rebound “stronger, more determined and better-equipped to unite the world in fighting to defend democracy because we have fought it for ourselves,” The Washington Post reported.

Pompeo, who served under President Donald Trump, told Fox News‘ Trey Gowdy in an interview later that Americans have already seen Biden’s record on foreign policy when he was vice president for President Barack Obama, and that it could be cause for concern.

“Does he mean back to when ISIS controlled a caliphate in Syria that was the size of Britain?” Pompeo said in response to Gowdy asking for his reaction. “I hope not. President Trump and our team took that down.”

The former secretary of state went on to ask:

When he says “back,” when America is back, does he mean back to letting China walk all over us, destroying millions of jobs in places like Kansas and South Carolina, that we know so well? I hope that’s not what he means by back. He talked about allies, when he said go back, does he mean back to dissing allies and friends like Israel and treating the terrorists in Iran like friends by giving them $150 billion in pallets of cash? I don’t think the American people can afford to go back to eight more years of Barack Obama’s foreign policy. I hope they’ll move forward with a foreign policy look much more like our America first foreign policy.

Anything else?

The Post noted that Biden “sketched his traditional foreign policy views with a broad brush,” but a key takeaway from his speech was his pledge to end America’s support of the offensive in Yemen led by Saudi Arabia.

Biden declared that “the war has to end,” saying it ” has created a humanitarian and strategic catastrophe.”

The Associated Press noted:

The announcement on Yemen fulfills a campaign pledge. But it also shows Biden putting the spotlight on a major humanitarian crisis that the United States has helped aggravate. The reversing of policy also comes as a rebuke to Saudi Arabia, a global oil giant and U.S. strategic partner.

    1. Win the next election??? What haven’t you learned about vote fixing???There will never ever be another remotely fair election.This illegitmate fraudulent admin needs to be taken down by the military now!

  1. Hope you’re right. What Biden is adept at is using America’s military to defend and assist its enemies. People seem to forget that when Obama was elected T-shirts were being sold on federal property with the slogan “Obama the King”. Biden is simply claiming his kingship like so many inbred kings in world history

  3. The hypocrisy never ends. Biden wants credit to end a war in Yemen, that he and Obama helped start. Besides being a part of the Obama-facilitated Arab Spring, the support for the Saudi’s was a payback for Obama’s Iran nuke deal to appease an angry Saudi Arabia. This is such a tangled mess when you consider that Iran is the other belligerent supporting the Houthis in Yemen against Arabia—the same Iran that Obama gave billions in cash to, that no doubt, helps fund their side of the war.

    Is it any wonder that Obama and Biden couldn’t do in 8-years what Trump did in 8-months—cripple ISIS and the caliphate in Syria. It’s almost as if someone profits from extending these wars and playing both sides:) It certainly it explains the contempt for Trump who wanted no part of it.

  4. I cannot even tolerate watching Dictator Biden on TV. He, and his whole family, are such high scale crooks. They are just crooks. Only crooks would steal and cheat to “win” an election, then call themselves the winner. Makes me want to puke.

  5. I’m referring to it as the Obiden administration, he is just appointing crooked and corrupt Obama retreads and flunkies to finish the destruction of our country and freedoms that the most racist president in history failed to get done in his 8 years “on the job”.
    When they talk of impeachment, the biggest threats to our country are crooked Joe, mind numb Nancy and sick Chuckie. If they have their way, they will destroy our economic system and make us all dependent on the federal government to survive.
    We have to convince our state legislators to make sure future elections are fair and Constitutional!

  6. Biden’s quote was taken out of content. He said: We finally got America going back words. Enough of this America first crap. We want China back. More money to Iran, let in more illegals and kill American jobs. That is the goal of the democrats.
