Biden, meanwhile, torched the president's "embarrassing" international leadership ahead of the Group of Seven summit this weekend.

"He has insulted our closest partners and denigrated one of our most capable allies, Denmark—a country that has repeatedly fought and sacrificed alongside our troops. He issued yet another attack on NATO, reiterating his belief that NATO is an American-run protection racket where our allies better pay up, or else," Biden said Friday.
