‘Lack of traction’ in Biden’s administration

The Australian’s Foreign Editor Greg Sheridan says US President Joe Biden has surrounded himself with “talking heads” that have “no real traction”.

“Biden has assembled this cabinet of smooth-talking people, and he’s got all of his identity quotas sorted out,” Mr Sheridan told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“In a crisis like this, their attempt does seem to be to laugh it off and hope in a few days the pictures stop.

"This is a very, very disturbing moment in the life of this administration.”
