Biden Claims People Refer to Him as a 'Foreign Policy Expert'

During a virtual town hall event on unemployment and issues facing working families, Joe Biden claimed that people refer to him as a “foreign policy expert.”


The comment came after the former vice president gave a long-winded response to a woman who had just lost her job and asked how laid off union workers can keep the healthcare coverage they had. 

“As you and I have talked about this, senator, I’m always talked about as being a foreign policy expert, healthcare is more complicated than foreign policy,” he told Nevada state Sen. Yvanna Cancela, who moderated the event. “Healthcare is complicated. It really is daunting for an awful  lot of people.”

But Robert Gates, who served as President Obama's Defense Secretary, described Biden as being quite the opposite. 

"I think he has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades,” he wrote in his book, "Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War."

Gates stood by that assessment in an interview with CBS "Face The Nation" host Margaret Brennan.

"I was rereading your memoir before we sat down to talk and you said in your memoir, Joe Biden is impossible not to like," she said.

"He's a man of integrity, incapable of hiding what he really thinks, and one of those rare people you know you could turn to for help in a personal crisis," Gates responded. "Still, I think he's been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades."
