Biden “had not been fully aware” of the negative impact a U.S. submarine deal between the United Kingdom and Australia had on France after it was announced, according to John Kerry the special presidential envoy for climate.
“He literally had not been aware of what had transpired,” Kerry said in an interview with French broadcaster BFMTV that aired Monday.
France became outraged last month after the Biden administration revealed a submarine deal between the U.S., U.K. and Australian governments, which sidelined a separate $40 billion submarine deal that France formed with Australia in 2016.
[ Editor’s Note: Thanks John ! If Joe was not aware of something this significant, then who exactly is calling the shots in the White House? What could our partners and adversaries be thinking? Scary times.]
