Former Trump administration official Richard Grenell said Director of the United States Domestic Policy Council Susan Rice is pulling the strings behind the scenes when it comes to foreign policy while President Joe Biden has been absent.
“President Susan Rice is doing a great job,” Grenell told “The Count” on Newsmax TV Saturday. “She’s literally behind the scenes just pulling all the strings and nobody’s paying attention. It’s a joke that we think that she’s not running foreign policy, we know she is.”
Grenell, the former acting Director of National Intelligence, added that Rice could not be confirmed by the Senate or gather enough votes to be Secretary of State so she is now running foreign policy for Biden in the White House.
“They wanted her to be Secretary of State, but she didn’t have the votes last time or this time,” Grenell said. “She almost became vice president.”
Grenell has previously described Rice as Biden’s “shadow president.”
“She will be the shadow president,” Grenell said in Jan. “We have a president-elect in Joe Biden who clearly is not the Joe Biden of 10 years ago. He’s not even the Joe Biden of five years ago when it comes to policy issues.
Grenell also perviously said that Rice is “extremely excited that vice president Harris is preoccupied in the Senate,” permitting Rice to further gain power and influence in the Biden administration.
“If we don’t get more kind of media attention and scrutiny on what Susan Rice is doing, I think we’re really doing a disservice to the American people,” Grenell said Saturday. “You can see that Joe Biden doesn’t have a command of the foreign policy issues, doesn’t have a command of even calling world leaders.”

Pro-Defund the Police Gubernatorial Candidate has NYPD Detail, Lives on Military Base for ‘Affordability’
Jumaane Williams is ‘hypocritical’ for living on a secure military base, critics say
Hypocrisy is no stranger to Democrats, but New York gubernatorial candidate Jumaane Williams is sparking outrage over his. Williams, an outspoken advocate of defunding the police, is relying on…the police…to protect him as he runs for governor.
Williams not only travels with a detail of New York City’s NYPD officers, but he also lives on a military base. The military base also provides 24/7 security. Williams, a self-proclaimed racial justice advocate, was elected as the New York City public advocate in 2019 after serving on the NYC Council.
Williams lives on the Fort Hamilton U.S. Army Garrison in Brooklyn, where anyone requesting entry must submit a background check and go through security checkpoints. NYPD security detail travels with him each day, provided to him because of his position for the city.
Williams proudly describes himself as a Democratic Socialist, and his campaign website touts a vow to “bring transformational change to Albany.” When New York City agreed to cut the NYPD budget by $1 billion as a result of the defund the police movement, Williams said the cut was an insufficient amount.
To add insult to injury, Williams lives on the military base simply for its “affordability.” A representative for Williams told the New York Post “when he needed a new home for his family in 2019, they chose a publicly available unit in Fort Hamilton not because of its position on a base but because it offered the best unit for his family’s price point and criteria.”
An area official with knowledge of the base’s housing process told the Post “these aren’t apartments listed on Zillow. It’s essentially a gated community with stunning waterfront views protected by tanks and soldiers with M16s.”
Not only are our tax dollars, but also our police and military forces helping to protect and house a man who is actively working to undo it all with his liberal policies.
