The first 100 days of a presidency are supposed to be a measure of the administration’s success. Joe’s are not shaping up well.
He upset many with his radical number of executive orders. He is missing important calls with world leaders, handing them over to Kamala Harris.
And despite the media’s attempt to sugarcoat his early bedtimes and gaming sessions, it doesn’t seem like he’s impressing everyone.
In fact, a number of House Democrats are even trying to pull this big power from him.
From Fox News:
About three dozen House Democrats have signed a letter asking President Biden to renounce his sole authority to launch nuclear weapons, according to reports…
“Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president’s judgment.”
Why It’s Important:
This is a pretty shocking turn of events. In all the years Democrats opposed Trump’s leadership in office, they never tried to take this one power from him.
I guess even they knew Trump was a man of his word, when it came to protecting peace. In his four years in office, Trump never started a foreign conflict.
Yet three dozen House Democrats don’t want Biden to have the ability to launch nuclear weapons.
What does that tell you about their confidence in Biden’s decision-making ability?
Plenty of Americans expressed worries about Biden’s mental powers during the election. He frequently shows signs of memory loss, short temper, and an inability to communicate.
Some have speculated that he is suffering from significant mental failure. If that’s the case, then there is good reason for Democrats to demand he relinquish this power.
But whether Biden will listen remains to be seen. If Biden refuses, perhaps Congress will mount an effort to deprive him of this power.
I’m sure there are plenty of Republicans willing to strip Biden of the chance to fire a nuke.
If Congress does manage to do that, what will it mean for future presidents? Does this mean that a future, competent leader won’t be able to defend the country?
- Three dozen Democrats asked Biden to give up his power to fire nuclear weapons.
- It appears they are worried about Biden’s ability to make crucial decisions.
- If he does, it might mean future presidents will lose that power as well.
