Joe Biden's one event on Tuesday was a meeting on "progress made to counter the flow of fentanyl into the United States."
Most of these meetings/events seem to be thinly designed campaign promotions. The fentanyl problem has only gotten worse under Biden.
But listen as Biden tries to tell us how much he's doing. Where are the results? He's also heavily slurring throughout these remarks.
Biden claims he's working with Mexico to "disrupt the flow of fentanyl" into the U.S., says nothing on the 8.2+ million illegal immigrants who have crossed the border since he took office. pic.twitter.com/4Ejm8ZdyL5— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) November 21, 2023
What we see is the people flowing across the border in record numbers and the cartels getting rich, all because Biden wouldn't properly secure the border.
Then Biden said that in his meeting with CCP Chairman Xi Jinping, China had agreed to work with the U.S. on targeting the chemical components that were being shipped to Mexico and used to help make the fentanyl.

Seriously? Why would anyone believe China on that? He says that like they aren't involved. If he believes that, he's either incredibly ignorant, compromised, and/or completely hoodwinked by the Chinese.
He's taking Xi at his word? Yeah, why not? I mean they just spy on us, cozy up with our enemies, threaten our allies, and oppress their people. Exactly what in there says they would do anything to truly help? There's no real mechanism to check on their compliance.
And what did he give them or forgive in exchange?
Biden lifted sanctions on a blacklisted forensics lab in exchange for empty promises.
The agreement reportedly involves lifting US sanctions against the Institute of Forensic Science, part of China's Ministry of Public Security, which has been blacklisted for alleged abuses against Uyghurs and others since 2020.
Congressman Wesley Hunt (R-TX) had a good take on it: it was like thanking the arsonist for help with the fire.
John Kirby says Joe Biden is "grateful" Xi Jinping has "said he was going to be personally responsible for stemming the flow" of fentanyl out of China.— Wesley Hunt (@WesleyHuntTX) November 21, 2023
This is the equivalent of thanking the arsonist for throwing water on the fire. pic.twitter.com/AbN3RsAnLK
I'm not even sure the U.S. is getting any water from China.
Then I'm not sure exactly what he's referring to here, but it sounds like he's talking about his next-door neighbor's problem with fentanyl:
Biden starts to go off script as he discusses fentanyl: "Just in the neighborhood I'm in, next door neighbor, anyway, just tough stuff" pic.twitter.com/9vGYlZ4Xv3— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) November 21, 2023
This might be what he was talking about the other day when he said knew people whose kids "woke up dead."
I'm sure his neighbors appreciate him highlighting their problems. Maybe he needs to concentrate on things a little closer -- like who brought the cocaine into the White House since they seem to want to completely sweep that under the rug.
