'Bad for America': Trump Says World Leaders 'Laughing' at Biden' on President's Europe Trip

As President Joe Biden meets with world leaders overseas, former President Donald Trump is criticizing the administration for its handling of issues and claimed the country's reputation has never been worse.

"We have never been thought of so poorly as we are right now, including the fact that the leaders of foreign countries, all of whom are at the top of their game, are laughing at Biden as he makes the rounds in Europe. So low and so bad for America. There has never been a time like it," Trump said in a statement.

He pointed to Biden's withdrawal from Afghanistan as the moment people around the world began noticing the negative impact of the current administration.

"It is very interesting that Afghanistan, and our horrible and incompetent withdrawal, losing soldiers and leaving $Billions of military equipment, was when people really began to realize how horrible this Socialism/Communism direction for America has become," the statement said.

The Republican's comments come after Biden apologized to world leaders for the Trump administration pulling the United States out of the Paris climate agreement.

"I guess I shouldn't apologize, but I do apologize for the fact that the United States under the last administration pulled out of the Paris accord," the Democratic president said on Monday. He added, "It sort of put us behind the eight ball a bit."

Today, I’m in Glasgow to kick off COP26. Climate change is the challenge of our collective lifetimes — the existential threat to human existence as we know it. And every day we delay, the cost of inaction increases.

Let this be the moment that we answer history’s call.

Biden's apology followed his call for unified and transformative action in handling the "existential threat" of climate change at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference.

"And every day we delay, the cost of inaction increases. So let this be the moment that we answer history's call here in Glasgow. Let this be the start of a decade of transformative action that preserves our planet and raises the quality of life for people everywhere," the president said in his speech.

Trump chose to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement because he believed it "disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries." For a time, America was the only country that wasn't part of the agreement.

Soon after taking office in January, Biden reversed the decision and moved to have the U.S. re-enter the Paris climate accord.

And after news broke that the Democrat would be moving into the White House, NBC News Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel reported, "As the results came through tonight, I started to watch the reaction coming in around the world, and people were reacting like the United States had overthrown a dictator, that democracy has been saved, that America's reputation had been saved."

While Trump believes world leaders are laughing at Biden as his approval ratings continue to drop, some media outlets like The Washington Post and MSNBC have reported that officials in Europe are actually more concerned about the former president's return.

"After four years with Trump, the world is very, very curious whether this is a lasting new direction of American politics or we could risk a return to Trumpism in 2024," Anders Fogh Rasmussen, a former Danish prime minister who served as NATO secretary-general told The Post. "It will be an uphill effort for Biden to convince his allies and partners that he has changed American attitudes profoundly."
