Republican Sen. Ted Cruz said President Biden's "fecklessness" is to blame for why Europe is on the "verge of war."

"Tragically, Europe is on the verge of war because of the weakness, the fecklessness of Joe Biden," Cruz told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer on "Fox News Sunday."

Cruz said Biden’s "surrender and disastrous retreat from Afghanistan is the worst military catastrophe for the United States in decades" and set the stage for Russia to invade Ukraine.

"At the time [of the withdrawal from Afghanistan], I said as a result of this incredible weakness, all of our enemies across the globe are looking to Washington. They are taking the measure of the man in the Oval Office. And as a result, as I said back in August, the chances of Russia invading Ukraine have just risen tenfold. The chances of China invading Taiwan have just risen tenfold. We're seeing the first of those two shoes dropping today because of Biden's weakness," he said.

Cruz continued that in 2019, former President Donald Trump signed into law legislation Cruz authored to sanction Russia’s Nord Stream 2, a pipeline that will run from Russia to Germany without crossing through Ukraine.

"The reason he's building the pipeline is that it skips Ukraine. It goes right around Ukraine. Why? Because the real insurance that Ukraine had against invasion is that Putin has to take his energy as natural gas in pipelines that go through Ukraine. Once he builds Nord Stream 2, he no longer has to worry about those pipelines," Cruz said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin stopped constructing the pipeline after Trump signed the legislation, but construction picked back up four days after Biden was sworn into office, Cruz said.
