Johnson went through a laundry list of problems that have cropped up in just one year of the Biden presidency.

“I continue to wonder to what extent that President Biden is compromised,” the senator wondered. “Just about every action he has taken as president has weakened America.”

Johnson on Biden: ‘He’s weakening America’
The senator added, “Our enemies perceive that — they’re noticing it, and they’re becoming more aggressive. They’re taking advantage of the situation.”
Johnson then gave his analysis of current foreign affairs.

“And President Biden is weakening our economy,” he said. “He’s weakening our military.”
“He’s weakening America,” Johnson finished.
