President Joe Biden may have been thousands miles away from the United States over the weekend, but that didn’t stop him from engaging in his usual embellishment of reality (read: lies) about his supposedly masterful leadership and adults-in-charge diplomacy. . .
Here’s what Biden said about the Quad:
“What’s going on now is, look at the meeting we had here today and yesterday of the Quad. I bet you, I would- maybe some of you thought it, but I doubt many people in this audience or any other audience would have said that two years after being elected I’d be able to convince India, Australia, Japan, and the United States to form an organization called the Quad to maintain stability in the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea.”
But, as usual, Biden is wrong. He did not convince any of those countries to “form” the alliance. The Quad was first created after the late Shinzo Abe, then-Prime Minister of Japan, initiated an alliance with the prime ministers of India and Australia along with then-Vice President Dick Cheney in 2007. In 2008, Australia withdrew from the Quad, putting the group out of commission until 2017. (Read more from “Biden Claims Credit for ‘Quad’ Alliance Trump Reinstated in 2017” HERE)
