So who's lying?
This ridiculous claim was made by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, after President Biden emphatically said in yesterday's press conference that the sanctions imposed against Russia were NEVER about deterring President Putin from invading Ukraine.
However, VP Kamala Harris, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan are all on the record recently, insisting that sanctions WERE meant to act as a deterrence.
Someone forgot to tell Joe Biden the storyline. 😕
This isn't the first time that Psaki and others in his administration (and cabinet) completely contradicted something that Biden has said since January 2021...and I doubt it will be the last.
What a joke! Who are Americans and the rest of the world supposed to trust anymore and what are they supposed to believe?
Perhaps the President and his administration will finally be held to account for all their blunders, flip-flops, and lies, leading to a variety of national security crises, when the GOP retakes the House and the Senate in the November mid-term elections.
