Ted Cruz: ‘Biden Surrendered to Putin’

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz called out Joe Biden saying the Democrat president surrendered to Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

Cruz spoke follwoing a two-hour virtual summit between the Russian leader and the White House.

Cruz was not happy with what Biden got from the meeting saying Biden came up short.

The Texas senator said: “President Biden is obviously wrong. Joe Biden surrendered to Putin, waived sanctions that worked.

“That’s why we’re facing the prospect of a Russian invasion of Ukraine. If we see tanks in the streets of Kiev it will be because Joe Biden surrendered to Putin.

From The Hill:

The Biden administration is considering how to potentially evacuate U.S. citizens from Ukraine should an invasion from Russia prompt security concerns in the country. 

Senior State Department official Victoria Nuland conducted a “gloomy” briefing for senators about the situation on Monday night, according to CNN. 

A person familiar with the briefing said that Nuland noted that the U.S. had limited options for how to deter Russia from attacking Ukraine entirely; however, she also discussed the harsh sanctions that the Biden administration could impose on Moscow in the event of an invasion.

At this time, the administration did not see a need to evacuate Americans, CNN reported.

Putin’s foreign affairs adviser Yuri Ushakov dismissed the sanctions threat during a conference call with reporters.

“While the U.S. president talked about possible sanctions, our president emphasized what Russia needs,” Ushakov said. “Sanctions aren’t something new, they have been in place for a long time and will not have any effect.”

He described the presidents’ video conference as “candid and businesslike,” adding that they also exchanged occasional jokes.
