Here’s what happened.
According to CNS News, President Joe Biden embarrassed himself during a recent press conference after he stated that street lights would reduce crime in Central America.
Biden said, “What I was able to do is not give money to the head of state, because so many of them are corrupt, but I was able to say okay, you need lighting in the streets to change things, I’ll put the lighting in. We got a contractor. We got the type of lighting. We paid directly to the contractor, did not go through the government and Violent crimes significantly was reduced in that city.”
He added, “Fewer people sought to leave. When this hurricane occurred – two hurricanes – instead of us going down and helping a major way so that people would not have a reason to want to leave in the first place, because they didn’t have housing or water or sustenance, we did nothing. We’re going to do a lot in our administration.”
He continued, “We’re going to be spending that $700 million plus a year to change the life and circumstances of why people leave in the first place. That mother did not sit around on the kitchen table and say, you know, I got a great idea, the way I’m going to make sure my son gets taken care of is I’m going to put a — how old was he or she?” You can watch a clip of Biden’s remarks here.
