Former defense secretary Robert Gates is standing by his long held criticism of Joe Biden’s foreign policy credentials and raising new questions about the 2020 Democrat’s stamina.

Gates, who led the Pentagon under both George W. Bush and Barack Obama, said during a Sunday interview with CBS’s Face the Nation he stood by statements made in his 2014 memoir that Biden had “been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.” The show’s host, Margaret Brennan, looped Gates’s prior comments into a broader question about whether Biden had the ability to “be an effective commander-in-chief.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“I don’t know, I don’t know,” Gates said. “I stand by that statement. He and I agreed on some key issues in the Obama administration, we disagreed significantly on Afghanistan and some other issues.”

“I think that the vice president has some issues with the military, so how he would get along with the senior military and what that relationship would be,” Gates continued. “I just think it would depend on the personalities at the time.”
