Biden says Trump making America less secure, less respected

Biden says Trump's criticism of Denmark and other NATO allies is not only embarrassing but is "making the American people less safe."

The scathing statement from the president's would-be Democratic rival comes hours before Trump's departure for the G7 summit in Biarritz.

Biden is also criticizing Trump for saying he'd be open to re-admitting Russia to the group after its 2014 expulsion over its invasion of Ukraine.

Biden says Trump's "incompetence threatens to permanently reduce America's standing."
