The Biden Administration has spent weeks fixated on Russia’s encroachment of Eastern Ukraine, readying responses such as troops and sanctions. In fact, Ukraine and Russia have occupied the headlines of newspapers and dominated broadcast news coverage so heavily that one might imagine the weight of the world rests on the U.S. keeping Russia in check. This may be unsurprising considering Biden’s falling popularity–war has been a sure-fire booster of Presidents in the past.
But, journalist Ramzy Baroud warns that Biden’s real challenge is not Russia (or China), but poverty in America.
