Fox News anchor Bill Hammer Cruz asked during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” if he thought the White House’s approach to the situation on the Ukrainian border had worked so far.
“No, it didn’t work at all,” Cruz said. “If you look at what the Ukrainians wanted, they were very clear.” They explicitly asked the US, ‘Sanctions Nord Stream 2, now, today’. Joe Biden could do that this morning. He refuses to do so. Second, they said, they gave us lethal military assistance, they gave us weapons to defend ourselves. ”
Cruz argued that Senate support for sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 pipeline had changed only because of who was sitting in the Oval Office and accused Democrats of voting “for” Russia.
“Joe Biden came to Capitol Hill and personally lobbied Democratic senators to vote against Russian sanctions. That is why we are facing this invasion. I have to say that Bill and Joe Biden becoming president is the best thing that has ever happened, tragically, to Vladimir Putin,” Cruz said. .
The Biden administration has vowed to impose “unprecedented” and “disabling” sanctions against Russia if it invades Ukraine. On Saturday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on Western governments to issue pre-emptive sanctions against Moscow.
Biden said last week that he was “convinced” that Russia was planning to invade Ukraine, although members of his administration said diplomatic paths toward de-escalation remained on the table.
