“Disaster on the world stage for Biden”: the American president suffers an embarrassing snub from world leaders
US President Joe Biden has an embarrassing ‘snub’ on the world stage, as several influential world leaders have decided to skip the Summit of the Americas.
“Disaster on the world stage for Joe Biden – Saudi Arabia, Israel and now Mexico have all snubbed Biden in the past 24 hours alone,” said former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, who was Ambassador to Germany. “They all see what we see,” he added.
On Monday, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador confirmed that he would not attend the Summit of the Americas later this week. It’s a diplomatic debacle amid alarming reports of a US-Mexico border surge flooding the country with asylum seekers and illegal immigrants.
“The event is hosted by President Joe Biden and will focus in part on the migration crisis,” the Daily Caller reported. “Lopez Obrador had previously threatened to boycott the event if the Biden administration excluded Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua, according to Reuters.”
“López Obrador had led a chorus of mostly left-wing leaders pushing for the United States to invite Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela to the rally being held on American soil for the first time since 1994,” AP reported. on the snub of Mexico. “Other leaders, including Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador — three big drivers of migration to the United States — have indicated they will also stay away.”
“There cannot be a summit if all the countries are not invited,” López Obrador said on Monday. “Or there may be one, but that is to continue with all the policies of interventionism.”
A foreign diplomat and two US officials told NBC News that Biden’s visits to Saudi Arabia and Israel will not take place in June, as planned. Both visits were scheduled to take place at the end of Biden’s previously scheduled trips to Germany and Spain this month. The Saudi and Israeli visits would take place at a later date, the White House said.
Meanwhile, after delivering a speech proposing more “gun control” on Friday, the president took advantage of a a weekend getaway at his oceanfront home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
