Joe Biden has amassed some very impressive policy failures since he's taken office. Is it incompetence or intentional? Take a look at the top 5 and decide for yourself.
US Withdrawal From Afghanistan
President Biden’s poorly planned withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021 resulted in the deaths of 13 U.S. service members, the abandonment of American citizens behind enemy lines and significantly weakened America’s credibility on the world stage.
Nord Stream 2 Gas Line
Congress, the Obama administration, and the Trump administration supported policies to block completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in Europe. The Biden administration reversed its predecessor’s decisions in 2021, waiving sanctions and ignoring the concerns of the European Parliament. Nord Stream 2’s operations were shut down after Russia invaded Ukraine.
Biden Begs OPEC For Oil
After Biden’s visit to the Middle East OPEC slashed crude oil production by 2 million barrels per day - instead of giving the oil increase that he begged for.
Biden’s Southern Border Disaster
Biden said that the border crisis didn’t begin “overnight.” Actually, it pretty much did —the moment he took office. There have been an estimated 5.5 million illegal border crossings since Biden has taken office.
Border enforcement officials apprehended more than three dozen people named on the federal terrorism watchlist at the US-Mexico frontier in the final three months of 2022 — after a record number of terror suspects were caught in the 12 months ending Sept. 30 last year.
Spying Chinese Balloons Fly By
A Chinese surveillance balloon that drifted across the continental United States in early 2023 is being seen as the latest embarrassment to hit President Biden’s foreign policy.
The balloon was finally shot down after being allowed to drift across the continental United States for days.
House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mike Rogers said allowing the balloon to cross the U.S. is "another example of weakness by the Biden administration."
"Now, the White House must provide answers about why they decided to allow a CCP spy balloon to cross the United States and what damage to our national security occurred from this decision," he said.

Part of their spin even included fear-mongering over all the "kindergartens and hospitals" it could've hit if it was shot down. pic.twitter.com/BCvp1DP0XH
