Republican Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has dropped the hammer on Joe Biden, blasting the Democrat president’s history of foreign policy failures.
Sen. Cruz took aim at Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris while speaking with Sean Hannity on Fox News about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The Texas senator argues that the United States should give more support to Ukraine as it fights for survival.
“It’s been Joe Biden’s M.O. for fifty years,” Cruz said.
“He’s been wrong on every foreign policy question for five decades. Literally, since when I was a toddler, and Joe Biden arrived in the Senate he’s been consistently wrong.
“Biden is afraid of Putin. And not only should we be passing on those MiGs so the Ukrainian pilots can use them, we also ought to be encouraging the other former Soviet bloc nations around Ukraine to move air defense systems into Ukraine’s borders to be able to defend themselves from Russian jets.”

Former Vice President Mike Pence also echoed Cruz’s sentiments, calling on Biden to do more to help end Putin’s invasion.
“The world’s been inspired by President Zelenskyy,” Pence said.
“When I met him two years ago, we actually spent time together in Poland.
“We spoke after that, and I saw at that time his strength, his poise.
“But what the world has seen is a man standing courageously in the gap for his people.
“And I think the words that he expressed today to the United States of America can be summarized in simply a message that the people of Ukraine are suffering, and we need to do more.
“And I believe that we will do more.
“I believe that it’s important that we heed his call for additional sanctions, that we economically isolate Putin.
“There is one person to blame for this invasion: it’s Vladimir Putin.
“And Putin must pay for the violence.
“I think it’s time that we transferred the MiGs, that we gave them the anti-aircraft systems.
“And I also believe the time has come for a 21st century Berlin airlift.
“When I was on the border of Ukraine just last week, I heard over and over again the practical needs the people are facing: food, water, medicine.
“And I think it’s time for the free world to step up and work together to make sure that the people of Ukraine have the wherewithal to defend themselves and also to take care of themselves and their families amidst this violence.
“They’ve shown incredible courage.
“You saw President Zelenskyy demonstrate that courage in words today as well,” Pence said.
“But I think the time has come for us to do more, to give them more of the ability to defend themselves and to give them the support that they need in this hour of need.”
