A former chairman of the Republican National Committee who also served as White House chief of staff said during a Thursday night Fox News appearance that Democrats were “walking away” from President Joe Biden.
“Albert Einstein had a famous quote that weakness of attitude is weakness of character,” Reince Priebus told host Sean Hannity. “And so, when you start day one destroying your border, making your country not energy independent again, when you allow countries — you quoted the second half of Reagan’s quote, peace through strength and weakness invites aggression, and it’s true.” (RELATED: ‘Hurting Xi’s Feelings?’: Doocy Asks Jean-Pierre Why Republicans Are More Supportive Of Pelosi’s Trip Than Biden)
“And so, it started on day one, it continued to Afghanistan, through the economy, to gas, to fuel, energy independence and now he’s desperate on this Brittney Griner issue. And by the way, the other piece of this, the fact that Joe Biden was upstaged by his own speaker and the speaker didn’t listen to Joe Biden, yet again within his own party, they’re walking away from him on 2024, it’s weakness all the way from day one and his own party’s abandoning him,” Priebus continued, outlining some of the controversies, policy choices and failures by the Biden Administration.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan Tuesday despite threats from China. Multiple Democrats have declined to endorse a potential reelection bid by Biden, including Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Cori Bush of Missouri.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
