President Biden’s administration announced that it was prepared to lift sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, a gas link from Russia to Germany. Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin pointed out the dichotomy of the administration halting the Keystone XL pipeline that would benefit the U.S. yet supporting the Russian pipeline.

Senator Johnson questioned the mindset behind the decision and the resuming of policies that compromise U.S. interests and reputation. He stated, “I agree with President Reagan when he said you achieve peace through strength.”

He broadened his comments to also include Iran and the Israeli-Hamas conflict. America’s “weakness” is also shown with the administration’s move to engage Iran again, the senator said, and he doesn’t think it’s a coincidence that Hamas once again attacked Israel.

“They realize the United States is going to be weak,” Senator Johnson said. He also expressed disagreement with the president calling for a ceasefire in his conversations with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
