Trump’s Conversations With Foreign Leaders Infuriating Biden’s Team

( — The Biden administration has seemed to be a little irritated with Donald Trump’s recent visits with foreign dignitaries. It is not uncommon for U.S. presidential nominees to meet with representatives of other nations to display their diplomatic prowess. However, some are objecting to which leaders he has chosen to meet with. The criticism has focused on the political leanings of the politicians and representatives involved.

At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump had an impromptu meeting with the Argentinian president, Javier Milei, who was scheduled to give a speech at the conference. Trump’s team have made use of a video of the two men sharing a friendly embrace for his campaign. This has sparked outrage from many left-leaning people who condemn Melei’s politics, which some have characterized as far right. Far right is a subjective term though, and one that many on the populist right have rejected.

Trump also recently met with the conservative Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban. He also had dinner with Polish President Andrzej Duda at Trump Tower in between his court appearances in New York. The New York Times reported that the former president has been in contact with Saudi Arabia’s Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The Biden administration has painted these meetings as an attempt on Trump’s part to align himself with right-wing strongmen and dictators.

Terry Sullivan, who has previously worked on campaigns for Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio, says these kinds of meetings are common in presidential campaigns. They are seen as a good way to show that the candidates can handle foreign policy situations. Biden specifically condemned Trump’s meeting with Orban, suggesting it is proof that the former president is actively seeking his own dictatorship. However, a friend and ally of the Biden administration, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine, has also publicly invited Trump to visit. Trump’s senior adviser Jason Miller, commented that Trump is too respectful to take Zelenskyy up on his invitation at the moment because “there’s only one commander-in-chief.”
