As tensions between the Republican and Democratic parties continue to escalate between President Joe Biden and GOP lawmakers, the upcoming news of cannabis and cocaine found in the White House has left Republicans completely appalled and demanding an explanation. Their concerns being that these substances could place Biden’s “well-being” and the White House’s security at risk.
1) GOP: Biden Administration Endangering President’s Well-Being
The GOP is concerned about Joe Biden’s approach to handling the President’s safety. In their latest statement, they expressed their dismay at the current administration’s incompetence in providing the utmost care and protection for the 45th President of the United States.
Critical decisions are being issued with no thought to the President’s well-being. Daily tasks, such as meeting with aides and advisers, are being taken with little or no heed to the possible threats that may endanger the well-being of the Chief of State.
Clamping down on security measures has made it easy for enemies of the state to exploit possible vulnerabilities. As the GOP also pointed out, these loopholes can easily be taken advantage of by hostile foreign actors or powerful corporate entities.
In light of these risks, the Republican Party had several requests for the Biden Administration:
- A thorough evaluation of current security protocols
- Carrying out a comprehensive countermeasure assessment
- Enhancing the security and intelligence apparatus
If these essential measures are not immediately taken, the GOP fears that the President’s safety will be placed in jeopardy.
The Republican Party is adamant that Biden continues to take the safety of the President seriously and executes the utmost caution in all his decision regarding the 46th Commander in Chief. It is of utmost importance that all possible threats are eliminated swiftly, and the President is safeguarded at all times.

4) Is the White House a Source of Impending Danger?
The majestic White House is iconic, a symbol of American power and stability. Some may be concerned that it could be a point of vulnerability for the nation, in times of physical and ideological threat. As one of the most protected buildings on the planet – and home to the President of the United States – is there danger lurking inside the White House walls?

Nothing is completely impenetrable, of course, but from a physical security standpoint, there is little threat of danger within the walls of the White House itself. Most of the risks of impending danger come from outside forces in the form of espionage attempts and cyber-attacks. The intelligence services work vigilantly to protect the President while they are in the White House, as well as prevent any potential attacks. The security personnel are well-versed in all facets of risk management, from cyber safety to personnel protection. In addition, the United States’ Secret Service is charged with the protection of the president and the safety of the White House.
