Biden offers $55 billion to Africa while admitting America's 'original sin'

 December 16, 2022

President Joe Biden announced plans to give Africa $55 billion over the next three years while decrying America's "original sin" of slavery.

Biden shared the information during a dinner with African leaders in Washington, D.C., this week.

His comments

“We remember the stolen men and women and children who were brought to our shores in chains, subjected to unimaginable cruelty," Biden said during the dinner.

“My nation’s original sin was that period,” he continued. “We honor their descendants, who our generations have — for generations have helped build this country and propel it to higher heights, leading the charge, blazing new trails, and forging a better future for everyone in America.”

Visiting Africa, but not the border

"I'm eager to visit your continent," Biden told leaders of 49 African nations at the U.S.-Africa Summit.

"As I told some of you, you invited me to your countries. I said, 'Be careful what you wish for. Because I may show up,'" he added.

Biden did not say which African nations he plans to visit, nor did he give a timeline for a visit.

Biden's plans to visit Africa angered many Americans who see him as willing to travel anywhere else on the planet except the southern border.

With the end of Title 42 going into effect on Dec. 21, an even greater surge of illegal immigrants is expected. Many border cities, like El Paso, Texas, are already overwhelmed with current migrants.

Biden recently landed in Texas just 100 miles from the border but told reporters he wasn't going because he had more important things to do.

The encouragement to African leaders was positive for the nation, but Biden's inaction toward the security of America's borders is dangerous.
