European security is vital to U.S. security, despite what the Trump administration might say, the former vice president declared on Wednesday.
Former Vice President Joe Biden attacked President Trump for his recent comments regarding the United States and its relationship with European allies during his remarks at the Concordia Europe Summit in Athens, Greece on Wednesday.
“I know at this moment there are questions about what kind of leadership the world can expect from the United States of America, going forward,” Biden told the audience.
Biden continued, “But I want to be very clear that there is still, in the United States of America, a strong bipartisan consensus in the United States, especially in the United States Congress, that European security is vital to U.S. security. That is deeply rooted in both political parties, notwithstanding what you occasionally hear from this new administration.”
“The United States has had moments of turning inwards in the past. But we’ve always overcome them, just as we will overcome this,” Biden continued. “History has proven that the defense of free nations in Europe has always, always, always been in America’s best interest and is America’s might.”
Biden concluded by saying that he intends to continue to use his voice to keep the trans-Atlantic alliance strong and vibrate because “our common future depends on it.”
