Sens. Johnson, Barrasso, Cruz Statement on Biden-Putin Summit


WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released the following statement on the Biden-Putin summit:

“President Biden has signaled the U.S. is back to repeating the same decades of Democrat geopolitical policy failures during his first trip abroad,” said the senators. “Biden allowing the completion of projects like the Nord Stream 2 pipeline are a threat to European energy security. This type of weakness only encourages Putin’s aggression; he’s not paying a significant price for his malign activities, and with decisions like these, this administration is only encouraging him. President Biden is sending a message of weakness and appeasement to our adversaries, encouraging and emboldening them. It is precisely the wrong message to send.”
