“Why are they putting him there” if he doesn’t do politics?

During Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s ‘Jesse Watters Primetime’, House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) reacted to the White House backtracking on the vow of President Joe Biden defending Taiwan with the U.S. military wondering who puts the U.S. in politics if the president isn’t and said, “Almost every time he talked about China and Taiwan, the White House reversed it.”

Host Jesse Watters asked, [relevant exchange begins around 1:45] “Does it make you nervous, Kevin McCarthy, when the White House constantly pushes back against the Commander-in-Chief, clarifying what the President has to say, as if what he’s telling you isn’t really US government policy? Does this worry you at all? »

McCarthy replied: “It worries [me] a good deal. Because who is it then? And what is of most concern, not just to America, but what is it saying to the rest of the nations? He cannot send a clear message. But it’s not the first time he’s done this. Almost every time he spoke about China and Taiwan, the White House backtracked him. But look, for the past 40 years, even Secretary Gates has said that every foreign policy decision he made was wrong. But what does that mean? It cost us 13 Gold Star families because of the decisions he made in Afghanistan, instead of listening to his [military]. …Why are they putting it there? Why are they allowing this to continue to happen?
