U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday, June 28, during a videoconference of the Democratic National Committee fundraising event, said that Republican Donald Trump has done “unimaginable damage” to U.S. relations with allies and other countries in the world during his tenure as head of state through his actions. A transcript of his speech was distributed by the White House press pool.
“By the way, I just got back from Europe — and here’s the bottom line. I know you all understood this – the unimaginable damage done on an international scale to the last person who sat in that seat,” Biden said
At the same time, the head of state did not call Trump by name and did not specify exactly what actions the former U.S. leader did to damage U.S. relations with other countries.
On June 26, Trump called the results of the 2020 U.S. presidential election “the crime of the century.”
Biden made his first foreign trip as head of the U.S. administration in mid-June. He attended the G7 summit in the United Kingdom, then visited Brussels, where a NATO summit was held, followed by a U.S.-EU summit in the Belgian capital. The culmination of Biden’s tour was his bilateral meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva on June 16.
