Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden praised far-left financier George Soros’s Open Society Institute during a speech at the American-Iranian Council which aided President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the National Pulse can reveal.
The unearthed comments come from a 2002 speech at the American-Iranian Council, a group which has worked closely with the Iranian regime after being founded by a pro-Iran activist in 1997. The organization has been fiercely in favor of Obama and Biden’s failed Iran nuclear deal.
American-Iranian Council leaders even reportedly helped notorious anti-American figures such as President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad meet with U.S. academics, business leaders, and the press. Ahmadinejad has spurred on “Death to America” chants on numerous occasions, raising questions as to why Biden would agree to speak at the group and laud their efforts.
Joe Biden, at the time a Delaware Senator and Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, “applauded” George Soros’s Open Society Institute, noting the organization was “important” and played a “critical role” in forging U.S.-Iran relations.
He even heaped praise on the American-Iranian Council themselves.
The former Veep remarked:
Soros’s Open Society Institute is the billionaire’s personal foundation through which he implements his far-left agenda, frequently branded as “globalist,” and rightfully so.
