Political pundits have noted that President Joe Biden has made multiple missteps in recent months.
From not visiting the site of a toxic train derailment in Pennsylvania to his “no comment” statement about the fires in Maui to falling asleep during a memorial service in Lahaina, some say he appears to be setting the stage to leave office rather than run for a second term.
His recent decision to skip 9/11 ceremonies in the United States adds fuel to the fire — which Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy pointed out.
Biden opted to travel to Vietnam rather than attend 9/11 tribute ceremonies in New York City or the Pentagon.
Doocy spoke to many still deeply impacted by the terrorist attack that took almost 3,000 lives as he reported: “When I asked a White House official why it is that President Biden was here and missing the 9/11 commemorations at the attack sites, the analogy that I was given is that 22 years after Pearl Harbor, U.S. presidents were not still going to visit Hawaii.”
According to a report in Trending Politics, New York City Mayor Eric Adams scoffed at the White House’s decision and claimed that Biden did not wish to attend a ceremony in New York City because he would be asked about “his failure to secure the southern border.”
Biden sent Vice President Kamala Harris to represent the White House in the 9/11 ceremony in New York City.
In contrast, during his time in office, President Donald Trump was highly visible at 9/11 tribute ceremonies and signed into law compensation provisions for 9/11 victims running through the year 2092.
Trump also reportedly personally paid for men to dig through the rubble to help locate survivors and recover the bodies of loved ones.
“They’ve never seen bodies like this, bodies all over. I mean, the great thing is when they find somebody that’s alive like the five firemen that they just found a little while ago,” Trump said.
Trump also commented on the attacks during a Monday morning interview on a local news station.
