Biden, who so far heads the polls of the Democratic candidates to attend the presidential elections, reproached Trump that he had not counted on Congress to launch the attack that ended the life of the powerful Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani and that he has not given until the moment evidence about the impending attacks that Soelimani allegedly planned against US targets.
In a speech in which he spoke of the president's need for accountability and in which he stressed that no president can take the country to war without the consent of Congress, Biden called the president's decision "impulsive."
"Trump's impulsive decision has done more to strengthen Iran's position in the region than any Soleimani conspiracy would have achieved," he said.

Whoever was the right hand of President Barack Obama, asked Trump in his speech to abandon his diplomacy of "tweets, threats and lollipops", approach traditional partners and launch signals to Iran to reduce tensions, to avoid further progress by the same way.
Among them, he recommended that he resume the nuclear pact reached with Tehran in 2015, for which Iran halted uranium enrichment, and that the Trump Administration abandoned in 2018.
