WASHINGTON.-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said on Tuesday that President Donald Trump's escalation of tensions with Iran proves he is "dangerously incompetent" and puts the United States on the brink of war.
Speaking in New York, Biden said Trump used a "random" decision-making process to order the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and has not communicated the justification to Congress or US allies around the world.
Biden said Trump instead offered "tweets, threats and tantrums" that prove that the Republican president is "dangerously incompetent and unable to lead the world."RELATED
"Democracy is based on accountability," Biden said, urging Trump to consult with Congress about acts of war, as required by the Constitution. “Nobody wants war. But it's going to take a lot of work to make sure we don't end there accidentally. "
The statements of the former vice president were part of his second main foreign policy speech of the campaign.
This comes less than a month before the Iowa assemblies on February 3 begin voting for Democrats in 2020, with Biden trying to highlight their international experience in contrast to both Trump and his Democratic competitors.
