Biden Bashes Britain: Presidential Wannabe Follows Obama With Blundering Brexit Intervention


Presidential candidate Joe Biden has followed in the footsteps of his Democratic predecessor and former boss Barack Obama by wading into the Brexit debate, uninvited. 

President Obama was widely credited with inadvertently assisting the Brexit cause in 2016 by travelling to the United Kingdom and threatening the British people ahead of the June 23rd 2016 vote.

At the time, Obama insisted Britain would go to the “back of the queue” for a trade deal with the United States. In reality, President Trump has placed Britain at the head of the queue — respecting the two allies’ relationship and forgoing the animosity with which the left in America treats its most reliable ally.

Now Presidential candidate Biden has jumped into the debate by repeating a canard which has no basis in reality: specifically drawing attention to the UK-Irish border.

Biden tweeted on Wednesday:

At no point has the Good Friday Agreement ever truly been under threat by Brexit, but it has become a talking point at the behest of the European Union and those willing to use globalism to stop true British independence.

Biden’s intervention is likely to rile the Britain government and the majority of the British public who voted to the leave the European Union.

A would-be American president attempting to dictate the terms of independence to the United Kingdom not only runs contrary to the founding principles of the United States, but calls into question whether or not a Biden presidency would be more in thrall to the European Union over its relationship with the United Kingdom.
