Nile Gardiner, Director of The Heritage Foundation’s Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, blasted President Biden for doing “immense damage” to this country. Gardiner appeared on Fox News’ Outnumbered Tuesday to comment on Biden’s United Nations address, which he called “a very embarrassing moment.”

“Without a doubt, I think that Joe Biden is a very isolated president on the international stage,” Gardiner told host Harris Faulkner. “He is a president who has done immense damage, I think, to America’s standing among its allies and it’s not surprising, therefore, that Biden isn’t spending a lot of time today talking to U.S. allies because this is a very embarrassing moment.”

Then, Biden went on to avoid pertinent world topics like the Afghanistan withdrawal. As a result, his U.N. address did not have an impact. “And I think that his speech today at the United Nations certainly fell flat. It wasn’t very well received at the U.N.,” Gardiner said. “There’s a real credibility problem, I think, for the United States on the world stage under Biden’s leadership. I think the condemnation that you’ve seen of the Biden presidency from America’s allies is unprecedented in modern times.”

Meanwhile, other world leaders, including the United Kingdom Parliament, have openly expressed their disappointment in the withdrawal from Afghanistan. “Even in the United Kingdom, for example, lawmakers have been queuing up to condemn Biden over Afghanistan, a viewpoint that’s widely shared across much of Europe,” Gardiner said. “And I do think that President Biden’s leadership is actually clueless on the international stage.”

The last time Biden addressed the U.N. was in 2017.

Report: over 85,000 migrant children ‘lost’ could be in labor market or sex trafficked

A report from the Department of Health and Human Services has prompted twenty-two state attorneys general to write a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra and Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray.

A report issued this month by the Department of Health and Human Services stated more than 85,000 migrant children could be lost. Tragically, many of those children likely were forced into the labor market or sex trafficked. The attorneys general said the Biden administration needs to find these missing children.

“By law, the Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for keeping these children safe when they arrive,” the attorneys general said in their letter. “That responsibility includes reuniting children with family or placing them with a sponsor who will protect them from trafficking and exploitation. But that Department is not living up to its responsibilities, and the cost of that failure is tens of thousands of missing children.”

The letter asks for information to be provided on when the children were last seen and what safeguards are in place to ensure they are placed with family members.

“The Department of Health and Human Services must ensure that it is not handing over children to criminals and sex traffickers,” the attorneys general said. “It cannot do so if it does not know to whom it is handing these children.”

The Center Square reports that Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird led the coalition along with Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch and Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes.

“Losing 85,000 kids is like losing the entire population of Sioux City,” Bird said. “This is unacceptable. As a mom, it makes me sick to know that many of these missing kids have been trapped into forced labor and exploited by heinous sex traffickers. It’s the federal government’s job to keep these children safe. I’ve joined with 21 other attorneys general in demanding that the Biden Administration immediately locate and protect these children.”
