WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) joined Fox News Channel’s Hannity last night to discuss how President Biden’s weak leadership is resulting in an unprecedented level of crises that are hurting the American people and our allies around the world. In addition, Whip Scalise slammed President Biden for canceling the Keystone pipeline and pursuing other harmful energy policies that have eliminated thousands of jobs and raised energy prices for millions of consumers across the country. Whip Scalise also criticized the President for failing to condemn the radical anti-Israel remarks from several Democrat leaders, reversing President Trump’s successful immigration and border security policies, and recklessly spending trillions of dollars which has led to the rise of inflation.

On President Biden’s self-created crises:
“Right now, if you look at all the crises that Joe Biden is facing, and most of them are self-created by the way, what we’re seeing is President Biden’s crisis of weakness, because he has shown weakness, because he has turned over assets, turning down the Keystone pipeline. It wasn’t just the thousands of good jobs, it was energy security. And as Donald Trump Jr. talked about earlier, I mean, these lines at the pump are real, the higher prices are real. Families are seeing that.”
On the turmoil in the Middle East:
“You look at what’s happening in the Middle East, and again, it’s not just the thousands of missiles that are being fired through Gaza. By the way, Hamas is behind this. Iran is behind this. Joe Biden spent more time trying to help Iran get a nuclear weapon in his first 120 days than he has standing behind Israel and standing up to the anti-Semites in the House who have been criticizing Israel these last seven days. Just look at some of the Democrat leaders in the House who have been criticizing Israel during this turmoil, and it’s on every front.”
On the crisis at the southern border:
“The crisis at the border is very real, and it was self-created because President Biden has literally gotten rid of those policies that were working just because he didn’t like Donald Trump. Trump had negotiated that deal with Mexico to finally have Mexico not only controlling our southern border but Mexico’s southern border.”
On rising inflation:
“You can go down the list. Inflation is through the roof right now. Families are realizing right now that [Biden’s] cost to them and their pocketbooks when they are paying more for lumber, when they’re paying more for food at the grocery store. It’s all across the board. People are fed up. That’s one of the reasons we’re going to win the House back next year.”
