With president-elect Donald Trump’s criticisms of NATO rattling Europe, Biden came to the military alliance’s defense. “It’s a sacred obligation we have embraced—an attack on one is an attack on all—that can never be placed in question,” he said. He argued that support for NATO was bipartisan, citing Republican senator John McCain as an example of someone whose support would be unwavering.
The outgoing vice president also took sharp shots at Russia, claiming it was leading the efforts to dismantle the international liberal order. Biden warned that Russia would interfere in European elections this year, in an effort “to collapse the liberal international order” and argued that Russia’s vision of the future was a dark one.
