Since president Joe Biden entered the oval office in January of 2021, disaster after disaster has occurred for the United States at the domestic and international levels of governance. Rampant inflation has crippled the nations working class, resulting in stagnant wages and the widespread decline of the buying power of the American dollar. 60% of the nation is estimated to be living from paycheck to paycheck. Millions of illegal immigrants have crossed the southern border with Mexico. The middle class continues to shrink, and in a very alarmingly study, the average prices of housing have soared to such an extent that ownership has been deemed unaffordable in a sizeable majority of the country for average income families. In a study reported by Fox business, the average income of a family is around $71,000, and average home prices have been deemed as unaffordable under this presumed income in 99% of the nation.
Internationally, Biden has appeared even more incompetent than on the domestic level of governance. In the summer of 2021, the president orchestrated a botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, and 13 American servicemembers died in the actions. Millions of dollars in military supplies were abandoned and likely fell into the hands of the Taliban and other affiliated and related terrorist Islamist groups. Now, years later, Hamas invaded Israel in early October and murdered over 1,000 innocent civilians. Biden has come under fire for unfreezing billions of dollars that had previously been seized from Iran and returning the funds to the nation in a prisoner exchange deal.
Senator Joni Ernst, a Republican from Iowa has bashed Biden. Ernst has stated that the president has absolutely failed in terms of foreign policy. Ernst currently holds the position of co-chair in the Abraham Accords caucus. She has vocally voiced her concerns in recent days due to the fact that Biden and his administration have been hesitant to condemn Iran. Ernst called for strong leadership.
