Gov. Doug Burgum Says Our Adversaries See ‘Weakness’ In Biden After Disastrous Debate

 North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum said our adversaries around the world see “weakness” in President Joe Biden following Biden’s disastrous presidential debate on Thursday.

Speaking to  Cabot Phillips following CNN’s first presidential debate between Biden and former President Donald Trump, Burgum said that the security of the United States is in danger after Biden stumbled and rambled through the 90-minute debate.

“Even more concerning, we know who else is watching this debate tonight … Putin was watching, the Ayatollahs were watching, Xi was watching in China,” Burgum told Phillips. “And I feel like this is a national security risk for our country.”

“Because what the world saw was weakness from our leader in the White House, the guy who’s making the decisions. … We’re in a real danger period for now between now and November,” he added.

Burgum also talked about how Americans who are hurting might be feeling after watching Biden struggle to answer questions and sound coherent when it comes to major issues like the immigration crisis and the economy.

“If you’re a working family that today is suffering from high interest rates, from inflation, from the open border and its effect on your public safety, all of those folks that are looking for an answer tonight did not get one from Joe Biden,” the governor said.

“And again, that’s Democrats, Independents, Republicans, if they came looking for an answer, they didn’t find it,” he added.


Burgum also reacted to the headlines after the debate claiming Democrats were in a “panic” after Biden’s performance and was asked if he thinks Biden will be the nominee.

“Well, Democrats are going to have to make that decision,” Burgum said. “They created this situation four years ago and they created this decision with their VP pick. If they had a great VP, I don’t think the headlines would [read] panic.”

“President Trump is in such a strong position right now, heading to a rally in Virginia tomorrow,” he added. “You can expect tonight after this performance, people coming off the sidelines in terms of financial support for President Trump. You’re going to see people who were undecided moving into his camp.”

Burgum wasn’t alone in his assessment about Biden’s debate performance. Following the debate, Megyn Kelly said, “In my view, it is over for Joe Biden.”

“His presidential campaign came to an end tonight, whether he knows it or not,” Kelly told her audience in a post-debate special. “There will be meetings tonight, first thing tomorrow amidst Democratic Party leaders about how to get him off the ticket.”

“How to change into someone else. There have to be,” she added. “Already, we are seeing some reaction from top Democrats, who rarely criticize the president, suggesting he needs to have a serious look at this performance tonight and assess for himself whether he can go forward.”
